The main aim from this research is design an auto-synchronization monitor system to determine the quality of water. The parameter that will be monitored is a Turbidity. The system that designed locally is consisting of Turbidity sensor and Arduino-UNO that jointed together and installed in field to monitor a turbidity. This sensor will sense the turbidity of water and send the value to Arduino. After that, the Arduino will send the turbidity value as SMS message to the Data Collection Centre (DCC) via mobile network by using shield GSM sim900 that joined on Arduino tablet . The Data-logger in DCC will receive the SMS message that contain turbidity value then it will treat the SMS message and convert it to data by special software has been programmed in lab. When we received any abnormal value for turbidity by our monitor system, the software will give us alarm.
The importance features in this system are collocate and auto-synchronization the turbidity data in one place and provide us with alarm, very economical of consumption of energy, portable, cheap of construction and have development ability. These features made the designed system very useful to use it in scientific laboratories, environment centres and industrial sector.
