The flame detection systems are specially designed to react quickly to any appearance of flame. When it comes to protecting areas where flammable products are present, the speed of reaction is crucial to protect the installations in a concept of total safety.
In this project we will realize an intelligent fire detection system with the Micro: bit card connected to the Internet.
It mainly uses a KY-026 flame sensor.
When the flame sensor detects a flame, the Micro: bit card sends an alert email via WIFI.
Note: To connect the Micro: bit card to the Internet you can see this article:
To perform the assembly, you can connect:
for KY-026 flame sensor :
the DO pin to the P2 pin of the Micro:bit card
the VCC pin to the 3.3V pin of the Micro:bit card
the GND pin to the GND pin of the Micro:bit card
for ESP8266 module:
the RX pin to Pin P0 of the Micro:bit card
the TX pin to Pin P1 of the Micro:bit card
the GND pin to the GND of the Micro:bit card
the two pins 3V3 and EN to the 5V pin of the power supply module
Here is the program of the intelligent fire detection system connected to the Internet:
