The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the entire world to a standstill. The pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus affects the respiratory tracks and spreads rapidly when it comes in contact. Though the Vaccines are now available, the cure took significant time and the pandemic has severely impacted our lives. As prevention is always a better step than to find a cure, the objective of this project is to showcase some preventive measures which will allow residential societies, institutes and organization to prevent contact between the security personnel and the person entering or exiting the premises. The controller uses Raspberry Pi, temperature sensor, mask detection and QR code to get the details of the individual. The main feature is that it will allow the use of mobile phones rather than pen and paper to provide entry details thus further preventing the spread of the virus. Usage of this standalone system did prove to be effective as it was able to monitor the temperature, detect the mask and register the names of individuals entering the premises without any human intervention and the data stored was logged digitally, which can be further analyzed if needed.
