Heart disease remains as the major cause of death encompassed by Malaysians over the past ten years starting from 2005 until 2014. There are many factors that influenced this statistical measurement. One of the most influential factors is due to insufficient space for medical placement provided by the hospitals. The purpose of this study is to develop a smart bed health monitoring system based on electrocardiography (ECG) and body temperature sensors. Arduino IDE software was used for Internet of Things (IoT) and LabVIEW software for real time monitoring. Data can be seen through a website, which can help the doctors to monitor their patients’ data from a long distance. The result of the project was compared with existing monitoring devices used for heart rate (Hand Wrist Heart Monitoring and Galaxy Watch) and body temperature (Rossmax Monitoring TG380 Thermometer) which available in the market. These comparisons were conducted by several experiments to analyze its accuracy and reliability. The comparison of data between real time monitoring and IoT was analyzed to check for the effectiveness of data via internet. The result showed that the highest percentage of error for both parameters of heart rate and body temperature were less than 4.2%. This system able to interpret an individual’s level of healthiness such as bradycardia, tachycardia and fever which can be monitored in real time monitoring.
