Access to clean water is a significant challenge in many regions, including Sukkur, Pakistan. The effective management of water resources is a critical challenge, particularly in areas with limited access to surface water sources. This paper presents a remote monitoring of water pumping system designed to address water distribution challenges in Sukkur, Pakistan. The system utilizes a combination of hardware components, including Arduino Uno, Raspberry Pi 2, ultrasonic sensor, and GSM modules, to enable remote monitoring, control, and data visualization. The system architecture incorporates Node-RED, a powerful flow-based programming tool, to facilitate data communication, storage, and visualization. To enable remote monitoring and control, users can send SMS commands to the Arduino Uno, connected to the GSM module, to query the system's status and control the pump's operation. Additionally, a mobile application developed using the MIT App Inventor platform allows users to interact with the system, visualize real-time and historical data, and receive updates on water levels and pump status. The Raspberry Pi 2 serves as a server and cloud storage for the system.
