Residential Water Tanks with IoT: A Solution for Household Water Consumption Monitoring
Asian Journal of Research in Computer Science, Volume 14, Issue 4,
Wasting water has been a big problem in human society throughout the world. It can happen either in developed or developing countries. They tend to waste the water without knowing it. Moreover, people's awareness of the importance of using water wisely is still low. While they think the source of water is limitless, in fact, it is not. In contrast, the availability of freshwater in the world is limited. Furthermore, if the water is overused without reservation, it can trigger the phenomenon of water scarcity. However, the problem of wasting water can be reduced by using the water wisely and efficiently. With the growth of Internet of Things technology, it can help people use water efficiently by monitoring their water consumption. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of real-world items that may communicate with other electronic devices and systems via the internet by using sensors, software, and other technologies. IoT devices can be used for the purpose of household or the industrial. This paper focuses on designing and implementing a residential water tank system embedded with the Internet of Things technology for monitoring the water consumption in a household. The system will measure the water consumption from the residential water tank and send the data to a cloud server. Users will then be able to monitor it using a mobile device. With the data, users could change their habits of using water and start to use it wisely. Thus, the water shortage can be prevented.
