In urban areas the water supply to residence and commercial establishments are provided at a fixed flow rate. There are incidents of excess water drawn by certain customers/users i.e water will be released unofficially which is considered as water theft. In this project it is proposed to develop an embedded based remote water monitoring and theft prevention system by taking the data of water supply at the consumer/user end.


The overall objective of a distribution system is to deliver wholesome water to the consumer at particular area and in sufficient quantity and achieve continuity and maximum coverage at affordable cost. To attain this objective the organization has to evolve operating procedures to ensure that the system can be operated satisfactorily, function efficiently and continuously as far as possible at lowest cost.


Here we are using AT89S52 as our controller and also few sensors are arranged to detect the presence of water in that particular pipeline. As logic level converters are used to detect the water flow. Water should be released as per the instructions by officials i.e for example alternate days of supply is provided and only during specific period of time but not daily.


All the details will be shown in the web server using IoT module connected to the controller. So that the authorities can take necessary action in case of misuse. This is an advanced, trouble-free, fit and forget system for water board. By using all these malfunctioning can be avoided.


This project uses regulated 5V, 500mA power supply. 7805 three terminal voltage regulator is used for voltage regulation. Bridge type full wave rectifier is used to rectify the ac out put of secondary of 230/12V step down transformer.
