Face recognition is widely used in various applications, especially in the field of surveillance and security systems. This study aims to design and build a safe security system using face recognition via camera based on internet of things. This system uses the Raspberry Pi 3B and the OpenCV library as face recognition data processing which produces output on the Selenoid to open and close the safe, LCD 16x2 to display system status, IoT-based email delivery when smugglers occur. This study performs face recognition through the face detection stage using the Viola Jones method, feature extraction using the PCA (Principal Component Analysis) method and face recognition, then matched with the existing profile data in the directory. The results of this study indicate that the safe is open when a face is detected and will send a face capture to the e-mail address of the owner’s safe if the detected face is not recognized. Tests carried out on the safe security system using face recognition based on IoT build reach validity 90,25%.
