Plug & Sense – Smart Water


The Waspmote Plug & Sense – Smart Water model has been conceived to facilitate the remote monitoring of the most relevant parameters related to water quality. With this platform you can measure more than 6 parameters, including the most relevant for water control such as dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential, pH, conductivity and temperature. An extremely accurate turbidity sensor has been integrated as well. Smart Water allows to monitor water quality in rivers, lakes and the sea.


The Smart Water Ions line is complementary for these kinds of projects, enabling the control of concentration of ions like Ammonium (NH4+), Bromide (Br-), Calcium (Ca2+), Chloride (Cl-), Cupric (Cu2+), Fluoride (F-), Iodide (I-),Lithium (Li+), Magnesium (Mg2+), Nitrate (NO3-), Nitrite (NO2-), Perchlorate (ClO4-), Potassium (K+), Silver (Ag+), Sodium (Na+) and pH.

Smart Water Xtreme was created as an evolution of Smart Water. This model integrates high-end sensors, calibrated in factory, with enhanced accuracy and performance. Their reduced re-calibration requirements and robust design enlarge maintenance periods, making it more affordable to deploy remote Smart Water applications. This line includes a great combination of the most significant water parameters like dissolved oxygen, pH, oxidation-reduction potential, conductivity, salinity, turbidity, suspended solids, sludge blanket and temperature.


The Smart Water Ions models specialize in the measurement of ions concentration for drinking water quality control, agriculture water monitoring, swimming pools or waste water treatment. The Smart Water line is complementary for these kinds of projects, enabling the control of parameters like conductivity, oxidation-reduction potential and dissolved oxygen.


Some of the Smart Water sensor applications are :

Potable water monitoring

Monitor the quality of tap water in cities.

Chemical leakage detection in rivers

Detect leakages and wastes of factories in rivers.

Swimming pool remote measurement

Control remotely the swimming pool conditions.

Pollution levels in the sea

Control realtime leakages and wastes in the sea.

Water Leakages

Detection of liquid presence outside tanks and pressure variations along pipes.

River Floods

Monitoring of water level variations in rivers, dams and reservoirs.
