Internet of Things provides connectivity and user interoperability among different systems, devices, networks and services in particular control systems. IoT can be envisioned as a network of connected devices which are capable of providing intelligent services. This paper presents a security surveillance system in buildings based on IoT using Raspberry Pi. It can be used at industries, homes and office etc, where the camera records the movement of objects and using IoT devices and the data is stored on to the server. The idea is to lock the door even from outside the house and it can be opened using the android phone itself. If some intruder tries to break or to get in anonymously, the system will detect the person and photo will be clicked by the security camera and send the message along with photo on to the owner’s mail, thus creating the evidence for our safety. Some additional features for automation like rain sensing windows using rain sensor and servo motor and automatic light on/off for saving electricity and reduce human effort with IR senor and a simple led have also been implemented in this paper. Hardware implementation has been done for the proposed model and it will be applicable for monitoring home, industry, office etc. in the absence of user.
