Nowadays, water scarcity and excess water wastage pose a serious threat to the Indian Population. A major reason for this is the improper, tedious and inconvenient methods of monitoring its usage. Methods used currently not only require a fair amount of manual labour but also has a high scope of errors and negligence. These methods are not feasible and valid for a growing economy. A feasible solution to this problem could be the provision of real-time monitoring, wherein a consumer can monitor their usage in real-time and take necessary steps to prevent said wastage. IoT water meters can help in such a scenario. Using automated monitoring through IoT we can enable a User/Consumer to monitor their water usage and consumption in real time and be mindful of it. This Paper introduces an Automated Water Metering System using Arduino which monitors water usage in real time and can create a consumer profile in two ways viz Prepaid and Postpaid. Using these profiles, we can further generate bill for the user based on their usage. This user data is stored on the cloud and with the help of an online dashboard can be accessed at anytime from anywhere. This system will use the existing Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) for sending data to the cloud.
