DS Insight Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are a real-time cloud based system that is custom made to monitor water quality and hydraulic information. IoT data is transmitted in real time to a cloud server to provide users with the ability to view data on a web based dashboard. With the ability to monitor the IoT data in real time the users will be capable to determine if water quality issues arise.

We have a wide range of IoT sensors, in particularly we can monitor the growth of algal blooms within water bodies, this is critical to understanding the growth cycle of algae which may cause harm to the public. As well we can monitoring turbidity events in real time throughout a water distribution network.

IoT data can be used to assess corrosion idex’s, water quality, aquatic health, contamination alerts, and process monitoring.

DS Insight water sensors can be used for a wide range of projects.
– Water corrosive mapping for risk assessments
– Chloride mapping within drinking water systems
– Alert systems for water quality
– Algae bloom alerts and analytical mapping
– Detecting unknown material entering water bodies


DS INSIGHT IoT water sensors can be places in a variety of locations. They can be used in open ponds, pressurised mains, monitoring wells, fresh and salt water conditions, and full submerged. With the development of our C-Line we can extend the sensors out to 100m, this gives us the ability to position our sensors in very difficult locations.
