Water Monitoring Kit - Water Levels, Water Usage and Flow Meters
- How much water are you, your organization, or your clients using?
- What's the fluid and water levels in the distant reservoirs, tanks, and water wells?
- How fast are your fluids and water flowing? What are the gallons per minute rates on the remote flow meters?
- It's hard, but necessary to monitor water for effective water resources management
These are critical remote monitoring and Industrial IoT challenges that are solved by this Valarm Industrial IoT package! You can easily answer these with the hardware in this kit and Valarm Tools Cloud.
These water monitoring kits send real-time water telemetry information to web dashboards. Have a look at this executive water dashboard where you and your teams can view the following information on any device with a web browser, historically and in real-time:

This Industrial IoT kit has just what you need for telemetry to remotely monitor water levels, volumes, flowmeters, and depths. All telemetry data is sent to Valarm Tools Cloud using a Sensor Hub connector device, which is a WiFi sensor hub in this kit but you can easily use a 3G, GPRS, GSM or Ethernet sensor hub as well. Here's the list of items you get with this kit that will let you monitor your remote water assets in real-time with Valarm Tools Cloud:
- WiFi Sensor Hub for Industrial IoT
- Enclosure - snap-together box for WiFi Sensor Hub
- 4-20 mA sensor adapter
- PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) sensor adapter
- 2x Enclosure for 4-20mA & PWM sensor adapters
- 2x USB OTG Micro B to Micro B Cable
- Micro USB to Full Size USB Cable
Note: You'll need to get a wall charger, lead acid or lithium ion battery, or another power source (e.g., solar power) to provide 5V power via Micro USB to your Sensor Hub. A standard phone or tablet charger works fine for setting this up.
For each water asset, e.g., water well, reservoir, pond, or tank, a 4-20mA sensor adapter connects to your pressure transducer / water depth level sensor. For example, a 4-20mA pressure transducer made by In-Situ or Flowline.
A PWM sensor adapter connects to each of your flow meters and counts the pulses / ticks that are counted by the Valarm Tools Cloud totalizer. Connect the PWM sensor adapter to flow meters made by different sensor manufacturers like McCrometer or Foxboro.
Again, please see this write-up for details on how to wire up this kit to monitor your water.
Deploy the Valarm unit as is or put it in a box/housing of your choice. That's it! Easy enough?
The video above shows you how to integrate your Sensor Hub with Valarm Tools Cloud to map, graph, analyze, download, and forward your sensor data in real-time. See this blog post for more info on connecting your hub to the cloud.
Also note that Valarm compatible GPRS sensor hubs, 3G GSM sensor hubs, and Ethernet sensor hubs are available. One of those may be a better fit for your scenario, depending on what your easiest internet connectivity is at your deployment location!
