    Home security system gives an extra peace of mind and security in your house while you are sleeping or even away from home. From the moment the system is armed it will automatically keep you up-to-date for unexpected movements within your property. Home security has been around for a several decades now, where people were using their animals to get 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 expeditious evolution of the internet and smartphones 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. This project will involve research of the home security system history, on the current systems on the market as-well as the hardware and software will be used, which will lead into the project’s requirements determination. The main aim of this project is to find alternatives ways to design and develop a low cost system which is easy to configure and easily expendable in the future. The development of the system is documented, starting with requirement analysis and ending with the testing of the system. The entire project is then evaluated and concluded, discussing possibilities of future developments.
