Project Description

Water Leakage Detector and Valve Control


This project is similar to the one I published for the Microsoft IoT contest but this one is based on Arduino, not on Raspberry. My point of view is the following: instead of centralizing many responsibilities on a big platform (like RasPi, DragonBoard or a PC), I prefer to delegate simple responsibilities to simple devices (like Arduino and others). They will do what they are supposed to do and, as an option, they will connect over the network to other (simple or complex) devices to offer advanced services. In case of network failure, they still continue to do what they are supposed to do.

Hardware components:

-. Aluminum enclosure

-. Arduino UNO & Genuino UNO

-. Arduino Ethernet Shield2

-. Relays

-. Motorized valve

-. JST connectors
