We need a tool that can measure blood pressure automatically and provide measurement statistics so that the public or patient can monitor the state of their blood pressure. In this paper, we integrate digital blood pressure measuring devices with IoT (internet of things) using Arduino to process sensor values from MPX5050DP and NodeMCU to connect to the internet so that they can connect to firebase which acts as a database. The results of measurements using a blood pressure monitoring tool that we made using the MPX5050DP are not much different from those produced by a digital blood pressure measurement device from Omron. After the results are compared and processed with the relative error equation it produces 3.83% for systole and 2% for diastole and obtained an average of 13.94 for the delay of each data transmission.
