Problem statement: This study discusses the development of security system for smart home applications. More robust security system built around the world. Security system is being developed based on a microcontroller device as a receiver, processor and transmitter of information. Approach: The method of transmitting and receiving data is done wirelessly using a ZigBee device. ZigBee has the data transmission characteristics suitable for this system, as data is sent quickly and accurately. A microcontroller interface circuit is produced to promote the ZigBee wireless communication. A display system is produced as an indicator of conditions around the house that can be carried anywhere. Results: The transmission and reception is indicated by LED data display. The LEDs represent sensors deployed around the house. Conclusion: From the results, it is shown that the security system perform effectively and properly. However, improvements must be made, primarily on the input of the sensor to detect the presence of the object effectively.
