IOT Water Conservation system aimed at Minimizing Water Wastage

Smart and sustainable living has grown in popularity and stature in recent years. Because of this, many people have become environment-friendly, relying heavily on technology to aid them to make life easier (Attanayake, Hassan & Lopez, 2016).  The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the techniques that will help people make such aspirations (Davenport & Harris, 2017). Industries can manipulate the IOT to help streamline processes in industries.  The IOT can be used to manage a water conservation system to minimize water usage. In the future years, it is apparent that water will be a scarce commodity because of the human population rising to unprecedented numbers (Tietenberg & Lewis, 2016). It is evident that this creates a market gap for a water system that aids in the conservation of water.

Having highlighted that water is expected in the future years to become scarce, it is then necessary to come up with a system to help people manage and conserve their water usage. The IOT water conservation system uses sensors to monitor how houses use water. The IOT water conservation system is attached to every water outlet in the house. All the components are self-powered, and the sensors are connected via Wi-Fi. After that, the customer’s water usage is sent to his/her smartphone (Campbell & Corley, 2015).  The system helps customers keep records of their water use. Through the system, people will not treat water usage in their homes in an abstract manner. Eco- Solutions Company in the USA will produce the system.

The primary target market for the system is entire Europe. In recent years, homesteads in Europe have increased their desire to conserve and regulate water use (Gosling & Arnell, 2016). However, there is not a system that accurately helps them know how much water is being used by every water outlet in the homes. The system will then aid and fill this gap.
