—The aim of this design is to provide real time updates to people in the area of the hazard by detecting the danger and alerting persons nearby with audible alarm as well as visual one. This system intended to supplement an existing fire door in a secured building. This design utilizes multiple temperature and gas sensors in various rooms of a large building to detect the presence of a fire or any hazardous gasses, interface system at the entrance to each room alert anyone to potential hazards within and guide them to nearest exit and a central controller device for each floor collects data from the sensor periodically and then displays the status of each room by a web interface and by short message service (SMS) or email alerts by desired.
Index Terms—Fire detection, gas sensor, thermistor temperature sensor, back-draft.
