People are frequently shocked when someone passes away suddenly without any prior symptoms. One of the contributing factors is a heart attack. This condition might occur anywhere and at any time. A sudden heart attack can be highly perilous for a person who is alone, without family members or friends because the family cannot be informed of the victim's condition or their location. Therefore, it is vital to raise awareness of heart attacks. With the support of the Internet of Things, this study aims to develop a wearable device that people may use to monitor their heart health and connect with hospitals to get alerts in case of a heart attack. This system also provides family members with access to a web-based patient monitoring tool. The heart beat is considered as the parameter in developing this system. There are three types of evaluation which are conducted in this study, namely: 1) Sub-system evaluation; 2) Black-box testing; and 3) Integrating system testing. The three evaluation results show that all assembled hardware components are work properly and the system effectively satisfies the objectives of monitoring, buzzer activation, hospital and patient family notification, and so forth, with 1.96% average sensor error, which is still considerably acceptable.
