- Much of the water conservation effort has focused on the technological advancement of water-using appliances to make them more water efficient. How-ever, since user interaction with water-using appliances is a major influence on the amount of water used by the appliance, which is itself influenced by the habits, rituals, and expectations of water use, more research is needed that focuses on the user. In this research, IoT application is illustrated through a real implementation of one household water consumption monitoring system. A novel wireless water consumption monitoring system is designed, in which flow rate sensors are placed at different detection spots in a house to collect data, there are two main catego-ries of water saving measures to reduce water use: technical measures include network improvement, repair leaks, developing water-efficient appliances
non-technical measures cover information, education, awareness that may change con-sumptive habits. This research focuses on both of them and presents the ways of intervening peoples water consumption behavior by using the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies
This thesis explores a new approach for disaggregating of the end use of residential water consumption by using new technology for real-time monitoring and develop sustainable strategies. The first stage of the study was developing IoT flow meter sensor and installed it in the selected representative household for five months in Ajlune cities, Jordan, for monitoring water consumption in each part of the home. The second stage undertook household survey about the amount of water they used in each part, daily routine, and the highest part of consuming water. The third stage is to suggest some sustainable strategies.
The main goal of this research is to decrease water use consumption by improving family members awareness by using IoT flow meter sensors and sug-gest some sustainable strategies.The result shows that thebehaviors of family members were changed and LPCD at this house was: 126 Liter, but reduced to 109 Liter after monitoring.
