Water monitoring systems tell you what’s going on in the field, at distant locations.

You can monitor any number of environmental factors like water levels, flow meters, groundwater usage, quality, and health.

You, your teams, and your organization may also want to control remote assets with things like actuators, switches, and relays on timers.

Industrial IoT makes it easy for you to manage what’s important to you. In this article, you’ll see 1st hand how Tools.Valarm.net is used for water monitoring and automatic irrigation systems.

You can configure your monitoring systems exactly as you need. In this example, we’ll be talking mostly about agriculture, soil moisture, and temperature. However, these same technologies work with any industrial equipment, machinery, and assets you need to effectively measure and manage.

Your monitoring systems upload sensor readings and information as often as you need, e.g., once a minute or once an hour, depending on what you need to monitor.

Switches and equipment can be turned on and off as often as you need, e.g., turn on for 5 minutes every 4 hours.

In the photos you’re seeing a watering system that turns on the sprinkler irrigation at specified time intervals. This Industrial IoT water monitoring system also has 2 types of soil moisture sensors made by different hardware manufacturers, like the Decagon GS3.

Tools.Valarm.net is an open platform compatible with sensors made by any sensor maker from anywhere in the world. So you can custom configure your monitoring systems to do exactly what you need to do. To get an idea, here are key components used in these water monitoring units:

You can see the water monitoring system in the photos, as well as the the water sprinklers that water the plants at custom time intervals, for user defined periods of time.

In the screenshots from Tools.Valarm.net, you’re looking at the sensor measurements reported by the soil moisture sensors, like:

With Tools.Valarm.net software, you can map, graph, analyze, alert, and API forward any of your sensor information to business analytics and intelligence systems like the Esri ArcGIS platform.

You probably already see how remote monitoring systems help you, your teams, and your organization to do things like:

  1. Save time
  2. Improve operations
  3. Help worker safety and awareness
  4. Save money
  5. Increase effectiveness
