This paper deals with the design and implementation of Raspberry Pi Secure Home Automation for mobile applications using mobile technology, which ensure that we are safe in our home, and related monitoring activities. Our new integration of the camera and motion detector is the key to our proposed Home Security solution. Raspberry Pi operates and controls remote sensing, live video sharing and recording, and handles tasks for potential replication on home hardware, such as turning on/off a TV or a microwave. Initially, when the activity is detected and Raspberry Pi alerts householders for possible interference, the cameras will automatically start recording. Raspberry Pi has two primary interaction parts: web applications running on the portable device browser, and server scripts running on the Raspberry Pi hardware element in the cloud. Due to its friendliness and ease of use, we have decided to include domestic security and home safety in a single program. For example, when an attacker enters a room, the PRI sensors detect the activity and trigger the monitor, and the camera captures photos of an individual interacting with a live video feed. Additional backup and email services are also provided for the customer, which provides better recovery facility for the user.
