In remote home monitoring security system, embedded devices play a vital role.
In this study, GSM, ARM and ZigBee are used to establish a security for smart
home. In this study, LPC2148 is used as Microcontroller Unit (MCU), Resistance
Temperature Detectors (RTD) to observe temperature, smoke sensor to detect the
presence of smoke and vibration sensor over doors and windows to detect forced
entry, overall system safeguard the home from burglary. On entering the correct
password, MCU disarms the security feature else it activates the alarms and
sends image of the burglar to amenable persons through ZigBee and whenever there
is smoke or fire MCU sends SMS to owner as well it automatically activates safety
measures like, opening window turns on the exhaust fan and sprinkler. PDFFulltextXMLReferencesCitation
