Growing applications of ubiquitous computing have helped life getting better in every way. Pervasive computing has led its way in the advancement of IoT as well as rapid increase in applications. Everyday objects are embedded with microcontrollers to make computer-to-human (C2H) interaction environment to collect information to make it customised for tasks for users (Biradar et al. in Ubiquit Comput Secur Syst (UbiCC J) 4, 2010 [15]). In this paper, we propose smart environment for interaction to automate home security system with the help of ubiquitous computing. System is deployed in modules and as per requirements and can be adjusted. Currently deployed modules include fire detection system, RFID, alarm system, router, emergency contact system, database, motion detection system with the central control unit of android app and storing data at root location and away from direct access over network. The system acts dynamically according to sensors input. System is designed especially for commoners in terms of security issues and affordability making their life comfortable (Jain et al. in Raspberry Pi-based interactive home automation system through e-mail: optimization, reliability and information technology (ICROIT), 2014 [1]).
