The Internet of Things (IoT) has the capability to change our lives. In the near future, every device and almost every object will be linked together and connected to the internet. This paper summarizes the work done in developing a Long Range (LoRa) driven home security system for a residential community in a retirement township. Both hardware and software solutions were used to provide emergency alerts. A panic button was developed to generate alarms manually and embedded sensors were implemented to generate alarms automatically. LoRa wireless communication technology was used to connect all hardware devices in the network and to forward all these data to be stored in the server. A mobile application was developed to provide an alternative way of generating manual emergency alerts and to provide a communication channel in the form of a chat room for residents of the same community as well as the security guards. A web application was developed for residential area security management, where administrators can register new residential areas and assign security guards to these residential areas accordingly.
