This article discusses a concept for design and development of an Internet of Things (IoT) communication module of a multi- sensor early fire detection system and notification system. A SIM800F Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) module is used to send fire alerts to owners of the shops, security guards via SMS and web- based fire notification subsystem in real- time. The web-based notification system is intended for remote notification of fire alerts, allows fire and rescue crew to receive notifications of a fire outbreak in real time. The system is implemented in three layers; sensing subsystem, data processing and storage and notification sub system. Raspberry Pi 3 has been used to control multiple Arduino which are integrated with a couple of sensors, the sensor threshold value is set and if exceeded then a n alarm is triggered and notification sent to the user via mobile application
