Abstract Carbon monoxide (CO) is one of the toxic air pollutants that occurs in the incomplete combustion of carbon-containing fuels. Exposure to CO, which is formed by the incomplete combustion of carbon-containing materials such as aviation fuels, is associated with headache, dizziness, fatigue, and elevated doses, death. Exhaust system failures in general aviation (GA) aircraft can result in CO exposure. At a certain concentration threshold, this gas can harm the environment and affect human health. Unfortunately, it is not recognizable by humans. The World Health Organization has issued guidelines for the level of CO in the air to prevent the level of COH in human blood from rising to more than 2.5%. Concentrations of 2-20% COHb lead to ambiguous effects on visual perception, hearing, motor, and sensory-motor function, alertness, and other measures of neurobehavioral function. Due to the very major problems caused by carbon monoxide gas, in this invention, the MQ9 sensor is designed to be located in the air conditioner valve of the house and is intelligently connected to the air conditioner valve, and if the amount of gas increases (more than 200 ppm), the air conditioner valve opens automatically and leads to air conditioning. Also, this device has Sim808 module that can intelligently send alarm duo to the increasing of CO levels. This system automatically causes the air conditioner valve to open and the indoor air conditioning to be done. It has a very simple design and easy construction.
