Tank Level Monitoring

Low power solution for tank level monitoring

ThingsLog technology has been tried and tested as a convenient tool for level monitoring. Low power and IP68 allows usage in remote places and open air. Thus the solution is perfectly fit for tanks, reservoirs, water towers, drilling wells or ponds.


The platform collects data and notifies for unusual events.

  • Monitor tanks, reservoirs, water towers, drilling wells

  • Can be used both for water and aggressive fluids

  • Available with submersible level sensor

  • Depth up to 100 m.

  • Low power, solar panel or electricity powered

  • Connectivity through 2G, 4G, LoRa™ or NB-IoT

Key Benefits

Key benefit of the solution is to know  the level of a tank at any time and get notified whenever it reaches risk levels.


Early notification of critical events such as too high/low tank level


Automation of pumps based on level sensor data


Prevent floods or interruption of water supply

Tank Level Monitoring Use Case

Depending on the customer needs, a solution can be built with different specialized sensors, like submersible sensor, ultrasonic sensor or radar sensor.

Most level monitoring installations are low power because they are typically in remote places with no electricity. When in low power mode (battery powered), the data logger wakes up on configurable interval of time, provides power supply to the sensor, reads the measurement and records the reading in memory. 

On configurable transmission interval logger wakes up and transmits the recorded readings to the ThingsLog platform. If the reading value leaves a pre-established range of low/high level thresholds the logger wakes up and transmits an instant alarm. Alarms are forwarded to the subscribed users through an email, mobile notification or an API message.

In addition to monitoring capabilities, the system can be supplemented with remote control function that allows switching on and off of water pumps or other external devices.
