This paper focuses on the development and execution of a wireless means of monitoring the water level in a tank. The study incorporated an Ultrasonic sensor, an ardiuno UNO board, an HC-05 Bluetooth module, an LCD JHD162 screen, and a Smartphone for data acquisition, conversion, processing, communication, and analysis of the tank’s water level. In this study, the wireless means of monitoring the water level inside a tank was realized using the concepts of echo reflection, signal conversion, processing, and communication following a modular approach where level information is monitored inside the tank. The Arduino UNO uses the signal shared with the ultrasonic sensor to measure the tank’s water level and monitors the level of water using a Smartphone and an LCD screen. The Visual signal received is analyzed for action to be taken. The realized wireless water level monitoring system, if deployed to our households and establishments, would be able to monitor the water level against water overflowing and energy wastage.
