  1. Growing adoption of IoT-based security systems is expected to present excellent business opportunities

Internet of Things (IoT)-based security systems use four sensors namely smoke, temperature, LPG, and IR sensors. The data collected from these sensors is sent over the Wi-Fi module for connecting microcontrollers to the Wi-Fi network and send data. The integration of an IoT-based security system provides the user with total control over the security system and enhances the overall security measures.
