Abstract: Burglary means gaining an unauthorized access into others building or premises with intent to steal goods. It can be done by using shear force to break into the house, using false keys or other ways. A lot of burglaries have occurred by targeting single family houses. Normally, these breaks-in does not result in confrontations or injuries with the people who reside in the house as most breaks-in occur when the resident is out of the house. But in uncommon cases, some burglar will enter the premises when it is occupied and will threaten them with violence. Nowadays house burglary cases had risen in a wary ways. These problems can be solved in an effective method which is to use an automated home security system. Home security system becomes the most efficient solution to avoid the home intrusion issue which is happening quite often this day. As we know, most security house system is expensive and difficult to use. Therefore many people choose to neglect the implementation of a house security system in their house. For that particular reason, an effective and automated smart house security system at low cost with easy programming for user is built to overcome this issue. The project consists of several components namely the Arduino board as a microcontroller, the ESP8266 module as a Wi-Fi module, an Infra-Red (IR) sensor, vibration sensor and force sensor as a device to detect intrusion and the light emitting diode as a signal for any intrusion. In this project the sensors will detect for any kind of intrusion and then will alert the user via a smartphone application. In addition, all the data from the sensor will be stored in a cloud application called Thing Speak. Consequently, users can monitor the house from everywhere via their mobile application.
