The Internet of Things (IoT) is a field that has been utilized to enable remote monitoring and control of home appliances. Automated system is required to develop to save a life of every individual and to stop spread of disease. In this paper real time implementation of face mask and temperature detection system implemented using Raspberry Pi 3 along with some additional features such as servo motor controlled door opening. For face mask recognition, deep leaning methodology used. The Convolution Neural Network is used for detection of face mask. If a face mask is worn and the temperature is below the designated threshold, the door will be unlocked. Conversely, if a face mask is not worn or the temperature exceeds the threshold, a buzzer will sound. The proposed system successfully achieves the results for precision 98% and recalls 99% values.
