Internet of things (IoT) is the network of entities that consists of electronics, programmable software, sensors, and communication facility that enables these entities to gather and transfer data. The objective of the proposed system is to alert the remote user while the fire accidents occur. This system can be installed at any remote premise which has threat of fire accidents. Using this system we can detect the fire by camera. So sensors are not required to detect fire. The Raspberry Pi controller processes the camera input and detects fire using heat signatures. By using image processing method, the report is automatically generated and sends to the person immediately after the fire is detected in any part of the frame using Wi-Fi/GSM. On detecting fire, the system will go into emergency mode. The major advantages in this method are: sending the information to the person at any time, any place and remote monitoring for immediate actions.
