Environmental monitoring is one of the main tools of assessment and diagnosis utilized for proper strategies aimed at safeguarding cultural heritage. The environmental monitoring system apparently appears to be an easy tool, but it hides some drawbacks such as high buy and maintenance costs. This implies that the use of technologies to monitor cultural heritage is somewhat limited to analyze sites where the degradation condition are of particular relevance. The aim of such a research activity is to compare two monitoring systems, the first, at low cost, using Arduino system, an electronics prototyping platform based on open-source hardware and software flexible and user friendly, and the second, a standard commercial product. The idea is to reduce greatly the cost as well as, significantly, increase the applicability of monitoring systems on large scale. This paper shows the preliminary results of the comparative analysis of the two monitoring systems in relation with the decay problems affecting the paintings of the crypt of St. Francesco d'Assisi in Irsina (Basilicata Southern Italy).
