IoT Implementation for Server Room Security Monitoring Using Telegram API

Mochamad Fajar Wicaksono, Myrna Dwi Rahmatya, - Ilham


This research aims to create a system that can monitor server room security by utilizing IoT technology, controllers, sensors, actuators, and Telegram API. The system made includes security for the indoor and outdoor parts. The method used in this study is experimental. The output obtained by the user is telegram text messages, photos, and video. The main controller on this system is the Raspberry Pi. This study showed that if the server room temperature is >230C, the system will send a message via Telegram. If the PIR sensor_1 or PIR sensor_2 detects an intruder or the measured distance is <300cm from the side of the door, the system will send text messages, photos, and videos via Telegram. That way, the user can determine the next steps related to the condition of the server room. However, if the RFID tag is recognized, the solenoid door lock, PIR, and ultrasonic will be deactivated. Other features, Users can ask the system to record a video of the room conditions and also messages related to room temperature through commands sent via Telegram messages. Testing is carried out using 3 scenarios: testing command, testing regarding valid access, and testing regarding invalid temperature and intruder detection. Overall test results show all these tests were successful 100% and followed the objectives and program scenarios. This tool has fulfilled the objective where this tool can monitor the condition and security of the server room by utilizing IoT technology.
