Abstract: This study presents a technology of controlling water pumps using smart phones. A basic model of an android based application is proposed by which water pumps can be turned ON and OFF with the help of wireless radio transmitters and Wi-Fi router. The android app can run in Android OS version up to 6.0.1, i.e. Android Marshmallow. The paper briefly shows the connections between the required equipments. A future prospect to integrate the app with support for controlling other electrical appliances is also reflected. The implementation of this proposal can be helpful to prevent wastage of water as well as wastage of electricity.
Keywords: Android operation system, Wi-Fi network, router, transceiver, methodology, application interface.
