Looking for a water meter


(Andrea Riela) #1

Hi folks,

I’m looking for a water sensor, in order to see the water consumption in real time. Zwave better, but any other solution can be considered.

Please help me :slight_smile:

I’ve got a couple of these connect to a esp8266. If you’re OK with the basic soldering I’d happily send you a the code for it.

Uses wifite and mqtt too send data. Cost? Less than a a round of beers

What’s the smallest flow rate these can pick up? Could they detect a dripping tap?

On mine I can get it to register down to a fast drip which is 0.1L/m Perhaps I could improve it in code as I count number of pulses and worked that out into L/m.

Hi,

thanks for the great news. In facts I never used esp8266. Can you explain a bit more? what is the “bill of material”? :slight_smile:

thanks for your support, much appreciated
