Owners can turn on or off the security system and provide security when the owner is away from the place. The system is SMS based and uses cloud and wireless technology, sensors, and Arduino Uno microcontroller. The system sends SMS to the desired number to take necessary actions. When the secure system is activated from Android Application the microcontroller can detect the theft and flame, and send alarm SMS remotely. SMS will come to the owners in seconds after the motion or flame is detected. This paper presents the design and implementation of a low-cost secure system for the smart home.
