Living in a time where thievery is becoming rampant means an increase in the need to protect facilities. This may be achieved via an alarm system.
For the thesis paper, we have constructed an alarm system which uses various sensors to monitor events in the facility areas under guard. The alarm system uses RFID technology and a two-stage user identification method as well as enabling communication via an LCD display and SMS notification if the alarm gets triggered. It also includes an Ethernet module which connects it to the control program.
In the thesis paper, the RFID technology and the operation of resistive touch screens are presented. This is followed by a presentation of how individual alarm system components work. In the program part, the configuration procedure of individual components is presented, as well as the calibration of the touch screen, the operation of the control program and the FreeRTOS operating system.
