I have situation at my home which is causing us a lot of headache. We get drinking water only at midnight and someone has to wake up and switch on electric pump. This electric pump will pump water from water tank present at ground floor to the water tank present on the terrace.
I want to automate this electric pump operation and I have come up with following rules for it:
- When water tank at ground floor is almost full then automatically turn on the pump which will push water from ground floor to the tank on the terrace.
- When water tank on the terrace is full then switch off motor.
I am a professional software engineer and I have vast experience in Java, Scala, REST API, Big Data and all but I am totally new to Arduino so I do not know which Arduino components I need to build the above mentioned system.
Any guidance will be deeply appreciated.
