Abstract: In the present arena, wildlife and forest departments are facing the problem of movement of animals from forest area to residential area. The number of trees has reduced drastically from the forest that creates an unhealthy environment for animals to survive in the forest. It has been found in a survey that 80% losses are caused due to fire. This could have been avoided if the fire was detected in the early stages. This project proposes a system for tracking and alarming for the protection of trees against forest fires. Nowadays IOT (Internet of Things) devices and sensors allow the monitoring of different environmental variables, such as temperature, humidity, moisture etc. Arduino platform based IOT enabled fire detector and monitoring system is the solution to this problem. In this project we have built fire detector using Arduino UNO which is interfaced with a temperature sensor, a smoke sensor and a buzzer. In order to implement this project, we will be using GSM which is used to provide the final SMS to the user through the given number in the simulation program, Temperature sensor which is used to denote the temperature High and Low that will be displayed in the LCD Display, Flame sensor which is used to denote the flame ranges and if it is high the forest fire will be detected in the LCD display and if it is low forest fire won’t be detected. Whenever a fire occurs, the system automatically senses and alerts the user by sending an alert to an app installed on user’s android mobile or webpage accessible through the internet.
