Detection of smoke from videos captured by surveillance cameras in outdoor environments is one of the useful outcome of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The potential benefit increases when deep learning (DL) architectures are involved. However, an inherent difficulty is to detect smoke while natural events like fog exists. The effectiveness of color spaces in detection performance has not yet fully evaluated in those architectures. Moreover, the energy and memory requirements of DL

Therefore, in this work, a DL architecture with a suitable color space model, applicable for IoT implementations is proposed to detect smoke from videos in foggy environment. By collecting several videos including smoke samples, the performance comparison of popular and the state-of-the-art DL architectures denoted the outperforming result according to both accuracy and memory usage.
