Developing a Modular Security System through a MicroController-Based Firmware Approach

Abstract / Excerpt:

Security Systems are one of the most important features of a modern home. However, due to very expensive systems developed and marketed by OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturer), security and protection in any form becomes a privilege only to those who can afford it. Modern Security systems are basically built with the latest high-end semiconductor devices and faster communication mediums. This study focuses on the development of a new framework and architecture of a microcontroller-SMS based software for security systems. As each major key system process would be treated as independent objects, we would be able to create a simplified processing bridged for any technological and communication constraints available to potential security product consumers. With this, the proponents of this study envisions a hardware-based software solution for security systems engineered using a Modular framework making it dependable, flexible, faster, scalable and economically viable to all people, family, home and establishments in the society.
