The presence of large peatland in Riau, Indonesia, could cause air pollution due to peatland fires which causes the presence of thick smoke every year in Riau,  dis-rupting human activities. In order to monitor the air quality, in this paper,  the main advantage of the  Internet of Things (IoT) is the ability to transfer data over the network without requiring human-to-human or human interaction to the com-puter   used. In this paper, we propose an air quality monitor that can display web-based information to show the temperature and air humidity, and detects CO, CO2 gases, and alcohol in real time with the help of DHT11 and MQ135 sensors, Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pie. The results show our proposed system can successfully show each parameter of the air quality on the website and make suggestions about the overall air quality level. With our proposed system, we hope the government can respond faster to mitigate the bad air quality level and give information to public about the air quality level in a faster and more accurate way.
