This paper presents the design and implementation of SMS based Industrial/Homes Gas Leakage Monitoring and Detection Alarm System (SMS-GLMDAS). Gas leakage is a major concern at homes, offices, industries etc. Many homes and industries had fallen victims of inferno due to unknown Gas leakage at a hidden point. This is dangerous and requires high security to avoid life and property being destroyed. One of the preventive measures to avoid the danger associated with gas leakage is to install a gas leakage detector at vulnerable locations, hence SMS-GLMDAS is proposed. The system is designed to prevent loss/death to occur through gas leakages and hence promote safety of life and property. The system consists of hardware and software; all were designed, built, programmed, and integrated. The program codes written using Embedded C-language and system test carried out to ensure optimum performance. The time it takes the user to receive an SMS from the system control unit when Gas leakage is detected is also checked and tested for accuracy to ensure prompt delivery of the early warning message of the system.
