Security has become the most important issue in this modernized world. Especially in cases where nobody is available at home, residences dwelled with old age people and the residences of working citizens needs security as the residents and things within the home has become a severe issue of concern as many intruders are concentrating on these type of residences for easy way of earning. To eradicate such activities by the intruders to certain extent, several strategies and systems were developed and been into market. Most of the proposed smart home systems try to bring solutions for security problem, at the cost of usage of numerous sensor devices. Also threats to these security solutions are also increasing as technology is developing. Internet of Things (IoT), a giant network of connected devices is the latest technology being used everywhere. With the increasing threats to security issues, it is necessary to use such new technologies to achieve the same with increased security. This paper presents a real time Image based intelligent door system for home security that uses a pi camera. This is an efficient approach in providing security and thereby a reliable embedded system device developed utilizing the technology to meet the complex and challenging tasks. If a person clicks the door bell, picture of the person is captured and the image is sent to the owner through SMS and e-mail. Owner of the house can respond by opening the door if he is available in the house. If he is out of the house, a message is sent back to the person in the form of an audible voice and is made audible through a speaker. Proposed system offers several advantages in providing safety and security in terms of visualization and identification of people who visits the home.
