Abstract

The domestic gas cylinders or cooking gas are considered as the source of energy commonly used at homes but, the potential for a serious accident such as gas leak from organizations or flow valves if the gas cylinder or its attachments are not treated properly or simply if the user forgot to close the gas before leaving home. The current project aims to develop a mobile application in order to control the gas cylinder remotely by mobile application in an effective way. The system consists of two parts. A specially designed controller connected to the gas cylinder organizer and an android mobile application to control the cylinder remotely through it. The main functions of this application are, controlling one or more domestic gas cylinder remotely, sending an audio alarm to the user if he leave while the gas cylinder opened and close it, providing an alarm if there is a gas leakage and close it and finally if the system fail to close it due to any reason it call the civil defense.
