Technologies 4.0 have been increasingly used in the monitoring of regions. In this context, environmental preservation benefits from these technologies and can be used through applications that assist in the assessment of situations and transmit information to users about the real condition of the monitored environment. Among the possible monitoring of locations, the use of applications becomes efficient because it increases the prudence of fires and the like, due to the fast accessibility to the data. This project aims to develop an Android application in order to predict situations of imminent fires, the use of Bluetooth technology will allow communication with temperature sensors, CO2 concentration, humidity, luminosity and the presence of flame. Controlled fire tests will be carried out at the Faculty of Science and Engineering of the São Paulo State University "Júlio de Mesquita Filho", Tupã Campus, to assess the effectiveness of the application.
