Footstep recognition is relatively new biometrics and based on the learning of footsteps signals captured from people walking on the sensing area. The footstep signals classification process for security systems still has a low level of accuracy. Therefore, we need a classification system that has a high accuracy for security systems. Most systems are generally developed using geometric and holistic features but still provide high error rates. In this research, a new system is proposed by using the Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCCs) feature extraction, because it has a good linear frequency as a copycat of the human hearing system and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) as a classification algorithm because it has a good level of accuracy with a dataset of 500 recording footsteps. The classification results show that the proposed system can achieve the highest accuracy of validation loss value 57.3, Accuracy testing 92.0%, loss value 193.8, and accuracy training 100%, the accuracy results are an evaluation of the system in improving the foot signal recognition system for security systems in the smart home environment.
