Design and Implementation of Home Automated Security System Using Short Message Service (SMS) and Bluetooth

Authors(2) :-Obasanya Tayo Dorcas, Bello Oluwaseyi Olawale

Home security is a trending topic where crime is on the increase and everyone wants to take proper actions to avert unwanted access to their homes and offices. There was a need to automate home so that user can take advantage of the technological advancement. This research work provide a solution by designed and implemented a cost efficient home security system that has the capability of sensing the motion of the intruders and the macro quest MQ-7 (Gas Sensor) sensing gas leakage and setting off the alarm. The sensor detects any motion in its permissible range and triggers the alarm. It also sends the signal to Arduino Uno board which is a microcontroller designed to perform require task, it processes the signal and set off the alarm and sends Short Message Service (SMS) to the user via the HC-05 Bluetooth module. This system can easily set up a security alarm in our home for unwanted intruders and to prevent fire outbreak when there is a gas leakage in the home by buzzing the buzzer in order to alert the owner through SMS.
