Automated Home Security System: A Review

Blessed Olalekan Oyebola, Victor Toluwani Odueso


This paper succinctly reviewed motion detector in automated home security system. It attempts to concentrates on usage of motion sensor for domestic security system, its reliability and application or benefits in concise. These are achieved by critical reviewing the existing technologies to excerpt datum for discussion. The paper proffers that IR sensor effective range thirty feet and a field of view less than 180 degrees can be extended by installing a pre-activation button some meters before the range of the sensor to help users activate the automation system before reaching the range of the sensor. It concludes that home automation through motion sensors has capability to improve human way of living; be an assistant aid for the aged, helps to reduce stress and also stand in place in case of carelessness and hence bolster the nation economy.
