Abstract: With the advancement in the technology and increasing dependency of humans on smart devices, with the rising concern for security systems available to the society in day to day life, it has become very important to have a technology which can monitor and protect the green cover in our society using IOT. Our paper ‘Prevention of Theft of Sandalwood trees using IOT and Arduino deals with embedded technologies which incorporates the inbuilt structure and script code for Arduino in this paper we present an efficient solution to safeguard sandalwood trees which are the pride of our society. The sensors used here are connected with Arduino. The safety statistics of sandalwood trees is continuously synced with cloud storage using the wireless module which can be monitored easily by the concerned forest official who can also enable and disable the sensors. The accelerometer depends on the vibrations to control the signals. Our proposed system will link the leading technology to bring the features of security to completely safeguard our precious Sandalwood trees present in our environment.
