Smart Fire Detector utilizing IoT-based Zigbee Sensor

Jung kyu Park


There are several differences between the two types of alarm systems, conventional systems and addressable systems. It is important to carefully determine the introduction of a fire alarm system according to the installation environment. Talking about the main difference relates to how the connected device communicates with the main control panel by sending a signal. Cost is another factor that can be a determinant of your chosen fire alarm system. In this paper, we proposed smart addressable fire detection system. In the proposed system, IoT was used and the network was constructed using ZigBee module. In the configured network, it consists of a local server and a control server. The local server controls the addressing sensor and sends the information obtained from the sensor to the control server. The control server receives data transmitted from the local server and enables quick fire action. In the actual implementation, the local server used the Lycra controller and ZigBee module. In addition, the control server used the Raspberry Pi and ZigBee modules and connected to the Ethernet so that the administrator could monitor or control the local server.
