Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become an important part in day-to-day activities, and it has become one of the important methods used in the development of information network technology. In this paper, the IoT technology is applied in buildings that are on fire to create a dynamic model of analysis based on relevant location algorithm. Compared with the traditional models of fire control systems, it has been found that the IoT-based models have at least three advantages: (1) can make a more timely collection of information; (2) can analyze information dynamically; and (3) can provide the best rescue plan, which is useful to establish an information fire control system. The application of this system can reduce the loss of property and the risk of personnel danger, providing an important reference for the construction of information system for fire protection and scientific management.
