This project aims to highlight how easy it is to build on Particle by developing a monitoring system for sump pump basins. The system is designed to detect and alert users of potential problems with the sump pump before they lead to flooding and water damage.
The system utilizes Particle's newest product, Photon 2 a Wi-Fi enabled development board, to perform edge computation, connect to the internet, and transmit relevant data to the cloud.
Once the data is sent from the edge to the cloud, the data is captured in a Losant dashboard for visualization and a database for historical records. In addition, when warning/fault messages are sent from the edge, the cloud sends SMS and email messages to alert users.
