The growing adoption of automated teller machines (ATMs) worldwide, ensuring the security of ATM transactions and protecting customer data has become a critical concern for the banking industry. In this research paper, we proposed an Internet of Things (IoT) based ATM security system using the NodeMCU ESP8266 module, PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor, LCD display with I2C interface, and the Telegram app. The proposed system utilizes the NodeMCU ESP8266 module, which is a low-cost Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller, as the main controller for the security system. The PIR sensor is used to detect motion or presence near the ATM, which can potentially indicate unauthorized access. The LCD display with I2C interface is used to provide real-time status information about the ATM, such as Motion Detected or NO Motion. When the PIR sensor detects any suspicious activity near the ATM, the NodeMCU ESP8266 module sends a notification to the ATM owner or security personnel via the Telegram app. The notification includes details about the detected activity, allowing the owner or security personnel to take immediate action. The real- time alerts enable prompt response to potential security breaches and help prevent unauthorized access to the ATM.
