People are getting more concerned to protect their houses from unauthorized people, the status of the house environment like temperature, humidity, gas leakage and fire. The proposed system can monitor a house by use of sensors that are integrated with an Arduino microcontroller and an Ethernet shield unit. Notification message is used to alert users via mobile phone when a possible intrusion occurs or any abnormal events occurs in the Home environment. Nowadays, everyone is almost using mobile phone so via using this system, the users will not have to carry additional devices to monitor their house. This system is designed using modularity to become a flexible system that can be add more sensors without change the whole system, only add some sensors to increase systems functionality. So this system is a modular home security system using Ethernet that uses the internet via Blynk application function to initiate the communication between the system and the user.
