Disaster-LINK is a smart IoT device that acts as an alarm and monitoring system during natural disasters that operates by communicating over internet. It comes with Wi-Fi support for internet connectivity and uses an IoT cloud platform which helps to control, monitor and manage the device. The device senses its local environment using onboard sensors and send early warnings to family, friends and colleagues immediately when it finds a disaster situation. It is also able to receive such warning alarms from other similar devices available on the internet and provide the user with voice, flashing light, SMS and E-mail alarm notifications. The ultimate aim of the project is to spread the disaster warning information quickly through internet and make it available to those who need it as early as possible. The fact that internet is faster than the seismic waves of an earthquake, and much faster than a flood or tsunami, helps the device to deliver the alert message much before the actual calamity reach the users location giving that vital extra time to take those precautionary emergency measures.
