Farms cover large areas of the total area in the Sultanate of Oman, and these farms need a high-quality security system against fires, which is the biggest threat to the lives of farmers. Farm Alarm Detection System (FADS) is one of the modern technologies that protect the property of individuals and groups that are rarely used at the present time. The principle work of the FADS is to sense the smoke associated with the occurrence of fires and then warn the farm owner of the possibility of a fire in a short period of time after sensing the smoke. The device emits an audible alarm and sends an SMS to the farm owner about the possibility of a fire, according to the amount of smoke sensed through the sensors. The architecture of this type of system requires four devices connected together to accomplish the job. The results showed that when smoke and toxic gases are formed in a specific proportion, the device triggers an alarm and sends a text message indicating the possibility of a fire.
