Grid-EYE is a thermal mapping technology by Panasonic Semiconductors, using which embedded devices like Arduino Boards can generate fast the thermal maps of places, without requiring expensive thermal cameras or complicated image processing algorithms. IOT Based GRID-EYE sensor is part of a device which shall detect both the position and the intensity of the heat radiated by the surface of either a single or multiple targets or to utilize a Hot Target Mode (HTM) to track the target with the highest temperature when multiple elements of interest are involved at the same time and also specialized software and GPS Video MMS can be viewed instantly through SMART Phone. In highly critical border areas military personnel cannot monitor all the time. In such areas grid eye sensor system proves highly advantageous and efficient. An autonomous sentry gun system with IOT is implemented using the grid-eye technology which tracks and points the intruder. Grid-Eye Sensor system is interfaced with IOT to control the operating mode of the sensor and to provide a thermal image of the target on the monitoring panel at the control section. This project can accurately sense multiple intruders at a distance up to 5m 16.404ft. The temperature accuracy of the sensed object is maximum when the difference between the surroundings and the object is ±2.5°C or ±4.5°F with a maximum viewing angle of 60 degrees
