ABSTRACT

Fire outbreak contributes greatly to loss of lives, properties and valuables. In order to avert such losses, reliable fire detection, notification, and prevention systems are crucial. Heat, the common indicator for fire development, requires to be monitored and controlled in a flammable environment. This paper has therefore developed a distributed approach to the detection and prevention of fire development by monitoring the inducing heat, smoke and early fire. The study proposes a model for the heat sensing and also for the control function of the system. It designs and implements the four sensing nodes, one base node, and the control and alarm system with resourceful hardware devices. The heat and smoke status of the environment is relayed for prompt action through a local user window on the administrator's personal computer (PC) and mobile phone. The local user interfaces and the internet cloud are designed for data relay and recording. The system is tested and evaluated for real-time deployment and operations. The resulting data are analyzed and reported.
