The quality and quantity of water supplied by high- level water tank directly affect people’s daily life. Most traditional water tanks use manual detection, which has high detection cost and low data accuracy. In order to ensure the safety and continuity of high-level water tank water supply, this paper designs a set of high-level water tank monitoring system based on Internet of things. The system adopts TDS sensor and ultrasonic sensor to monitor the water quality and water level of the water tank respectively, and transmits the data back to the monitoring center for real-time monitoring through ZigBee –a wireless communication protocol. The system can control water level automatically and alarm when water is polluted. It has strong practical value and significance that ensures the safety and stability of household water, and provides data support for the improvement of water tank water supply in the future.

Keywords:  Internet of things, high-level water tank; ZigBee, TDS sensor; ultrasonic sensor.
