Arduino Based Smart Security System Design for Surveillance

Vinay Kumar Reddy Kaitha, Bala Naga Vamsidhar Grandhi, Vinay Babu Kosaraju


This paper presents an idea for a smarter security system that is a way better than the conventional systems that involve a lot of human labor. The design considerations and working environment of our prototype are discussed here briefly. This prototype can be extended to many domains ranging from household security to the defense security systems. For designing this security system, we have proposed an architecture using ATmega328 – Arduino Uno board and servo motors. By using this prototype in the real time effectively combining with the human intelligence higher level of security can be achieved.
