This system intends to show an automatic design that can detect, alert, and regulate gas leakage by employing an exhaust fan to remove gas from the area when there is a leak and a sprinkler to put out a fire in the event of a fire break-out. An alarm is triggered, an exhaust fan moves the gas outside, and a liquid crystal display (LCD) indicates how the system is functioning despite any distortions in the event of a gas leak. The Arduino UNO serves as the system's primary controller, and the buzzer serves as a notification device. In the case of a gas leak, notifications are sent via the GSM module to the registered cellphone number. The installation of a monitoring system for gas leaks in vulnerable areas is one of the steps done to stop accidents caused by this gas leak. The system uses a gas sensor (MQ) to find liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) leaks and a buzzer to notify nearby businesses, organizations, or individuals of the problem. The appliance is designed to be used in homes where running heaters and other natural gas or LPG-powered equipment can be challenging. For businesses or sectors that rely on natural gas or LPG for their operations, the system can also be used for other things.
