Presented in this paper is the design and
development of a multisensory Arduino-based fire
detection and alarm system using GSM communications
and RF module with an Android application for fire
monitoring. The device and its system were made to aid
the response of the fire departments to reduce damages
caused by fire. The device used four sensors to detect
irregularities that may cause massive fire such as flame,
smoke, butane, and temperature. Once one of the sensors
was triggered, data is sent from the monitoring functions
of an embedded Arduino Uno microcontroller to the
users’ mobile phone via SMS and the ‘Voltech’ mobile
application. Data is also stored in an inventory of daily
and monthly logs in the local host database through a
JZ873 Radio Frequency transceiver. A mobile application
was developed to ensure to users that they can easily
update the status of the device and the room they are
monitoring. The detection was calibrated into three
levels: a) Level 0 – No detection, b) Level 1 – Warning.
The device was tested and the results were remarkable as
to how fast the information dissemination and accurate
the reading was. This device was made to help fire
response and it has performed well when tested.
