Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease that is surging and becomes worldwide serious issues. Currently, due to lack of specific treatment or vaccine against dengue, many forms of vector control remains a key strategy for dengue fever prevention. In response to the issue, this paper introduces an AedesTech Mosquitoes Home System (AMHS) that is equipped with a special trade secret formulation or also called as Insecticide Growth Regulator (IGR) and combines with Internet of Things (IoT) technology for vector control. An IGR is a pheromone-like liquid formulation that is a chemical that serves to stimulate and have sexually attract the male and female that will attract and lure adult female mosquitoes to lay eggs in them, and the adult mosquitoes will soon die after lying eggs. Those eggs that already laid with the chemical will not hatch or die at an expected of % rate, or go beyond the pulp level. Our sustainable approach offers for two (2) novel features. First, to monitor the collection of Aedes eggs in our MHS, we develop a mobile apps called AedesTech Apps (ATA) for Aedes eggs auto-counting and data collection are stored in cloud based server. Second, to monitor the level of liquid formulation (IGR) in AMHS, we utilize an Arduino water based sensor to real time track the IGR level status and we called as Intelligent Mosquito Home System (iMHS). Our iMHS will automatically alert the user when refill is needed. Both technologies are related to IR . that could be a new approach for preventing and monitoring of dengue outbreaks. This sustainability approach are environmental friendly and cost saving that provide the solution to the world's global issue of dengue. The results by our ATA tool indicate a satisfactory figure with only . to . percent of error rate compared to existing ICount and EggCounter tools. Meanwhile in our iMHS with water based sensor, testing results reveal that the battery lifetime solely depends upon the setting of interval time of sending data to cloud server. Results show for a half an hour interval, battery could last for a half of a month whereas for an hour interval time set, it could last for a month.
