Abstract: Security and safety are two intertwined terms. It is a common belief that when a place or system is secure, it is safe. Security has becoming an important issue everywhere. Home security is becoming necessary nowadays as the possibilities of intrusion are increasing day by day. Safety from theft is the most important requirements of home security system for people. Home security system gives an extra peace of mind and security in everybody’s house while they are sleeping or even away from their home. From the moment the system is armed it will automatically keep everybody up-to-date for unexpected movements within his/her property. A traditional home security has been protected still, where people were using their animals to need protected. But the evolution of technology has allowed the use of electrical circuits and micro-controllers which made the system even more accurate and systems for every need. Furthermore, the GSM based security system provides enhanced security when a signal from sensor comes, SMS/text message is sent to the owner to take necessary action to avoid risk. However, expenditure evolution of the internet and smart phones allowed the home security systems to be controlled remotely at any time, which previously the only way to control them was through the central control panel embedded on the system.  This project examines the process of the production of a conceptual home security system for a client, which can secure and monitor a desired room. Also, this project has been involved research of the home security systems, which currently on the market as-well as the hardware and software will be used, that lead into the project’s requirements determination. The main aim of this project is to find alternative ways to design and develop a low-cost system which will be easy to configure and expendable in the future. The development of the system has been started with requirement analysis and ended with the testing of the system, and then it is documented. The entire project is then evaluated and concluded, discussing possibilities of future development.
