Nowadays use of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has increased. LPG is an asphyxiating, volatile and highly flammable gas. In a LPG leak situation, potential health accidents are increased either by inhalation or by combustion of the gas. On the other hand, carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic gas that comes mainly from combustion in car engines. Breathing CO-polluted air can cause dizziness, fainting, breathing problems, and sometimes death. To prevent health accidents, including explosions, in open or closed environments, remote and real-time monitoring of the concentration levels of CO and LPG gases has become a necessity. The aim of this work is to demonstrate the use of Internet of Things (IoT) techniques to design and build a telemetry system to monitor in real-time the concentration of GLP and CO gases in the surrounding air. To implement this work, as central hardware there is a microcontroller, CO and PLG sensors on the electronic station. Besides, Amazon Web Services (AWS) was used as an IoT platform and data storage in the cloud. The main result was a telematics system to monitor in real time the concentrations of both GLP and CO gases, whose data is accessible from any device with internet access through a website. Field tests have been successful and have shown that the proposed system is an efficient and low-cost option.
