Health awareness is important with increasingly complex challenges towards maintaining good health, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular health monitoring is a must for everyone during the pandemic. This project proposed an IoT based E-Healthcare system to monitor the body temperature, blood pressure and heartbeat rate. The temperature sensor was connected to a Raspberry Pi microcontroller and the readings were stored in the SQLite database management system. The blood pressure and heartbeat rate readings were retrieved from the wrist blood pressure sensor and the readings were entered into the database. The user can access the health data record through a smartphone.
