House owners with tight schedule or have a busy lifestyle tend to forget to monitor their houses effectively. For example, they or their elderlies or their children might forget to close a water tap after using it so much. To visually check every water taps in the house consumes time, tedious, and requires a family member to be at the house. Currently, this could not be done remotely. This paper presents the development of an online mobile application (app) that monitors and controls the water flow through taps whenever there is an unusual reading of the water usage at home. The primary goal of this system is to enable a user in monitoring and controlling the water flow at home via an online mobile application’s (app) graphical user interface (GUI). This would make the monitoring process more efficient and convenient for house owners.
