Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is widely used in field environmental monitoring recently, because of its ease of use and being able to simplify the complexity installation in real application. Indonesia is an agricultural country with more than 16.5 million of farming land, most of the farming land is located in a rural area. The problems on the implementation of IoT-based environmental monitoring system in a rural area is the limited signal and energy. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to develop an Environmental Monitoring System based on LoRa in a rural area with the implementation of the Local Management Subsystem (LMS) and Global Management Subsystem (GMS) framework to optimize the existing development of the Environmental Monitoring System with focused on optimum distance by measuring the RSSI, signal strength and packet loss. The research was conducted in Bulaksumur Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, with four zones and various obstacles. As the result, Zone D with line of sight was the best result for getting the affordable distance for data transmission. This Zone can reach over 800 m distance with only 20% packet loss.
