I'm very new in this, so, i'll try to be as accurate as possible but please be gentle with me :).
I'm working in a Fish farm and I would like to set up a monitoring system.
Initial conditions :
The owner has his house 500meters away from the pools, the pools are an open circuit of water, where the water is coming from a small river, and going back in once passed through the pools.
Sometimes, they way gets blocked by leaves and the level in the pool gets critical.
Secondely, if a power cut happens, the aerators shutdown ... and this can turn quickly bad
What I need :
So ! I will be setting up a wifi relay between the pools and his house, next to the pools we have a small building where i'm going to set up a computer (which will receive datas from sensors).
And here is where it gets hard for me, Im struggling to know what would be the best option for my case, arduino seems to be a potential solution for what I want which is :
-Setting up a video feed (that won't record, i just want to be able to remotely activate and monitor when i need)
-Having a sensor that catch the tension (I wanna know when a powercut happens)
-And monitoring basical stuff like the level of my pool, the 02 in the water, temperature...
I heard about Lora and Lorawan as well, tell me guys what do you think about it,
Thanks and have a good one !
