Contemporary technical experimentations become complicated. Therefore, a smart laboratory environment is needed for effective laboratory activities. In particular, a monitoring/surveillance system is needed to detect and regulate extreme ambient conditions in the laboratory. In this paper, we describe how a thermal comfort laboratory surveillance system is constructed via the deployment of a wireless sensor network (WSN). In order to prolong system lifetime as well as improve system reliability, a habit-based adaptive sensing mechanism has been proposed. Evaluations of on-site deployment results indicate the functionality and feasibility of the proposed WSN.
