A fire outbreak is a major tragedy that must be avoided by every possible means due to the potential loss of lives and property, fire when not controlled can grow large and may require days to bring under control.Hence this technology must be applied to minimize or even eliminate this great hazard. In This study, a fire alarm and detection system was developed. This system was built with the GSM module embedded in it, which helps to send SMS (Short messaging service) to the home owners and the fire service personal, when there is fire outbreak before it gets out of range. Furthermore, this study provides a technology that would be accessible and affordable to the world at large so that homes, offices, and schools can adopt the use in other to protect lives and property. If and when the developed system is commercialized, it will help reduce uncontrolled fires by 50% because it warns of dangerous conditions before a fire outbreak.
