Urban water supply pipe network is critical infrastructure for the survival of people. Efficient operation of equipment, water supply and water safety are always received great attention from the government and operators. The existing way of manual meter reading and manual inspection has the drawbacks of waste time and labor. To solve this problem, we developed databases, software platforms and mobile terminal APP (Application) based on Android operating system to integrate a remote wireless automatic meter reading system based on the existing remote wireless automatic reading meter devices which are our previous research work. The system realizes the remote monitoring of the pipe network, and it also realizes the remote control of the monitoring nodes, such as the camera shooting, selection of monitoring node's working mode and so on, which data feedback is accurate and timely, monitoring methods is simple, fast and efficient. In addition, compared to traditional methods, the system greatly reduced the manpower and resources, reduce monitoring costs. And the tests and experiments show this remote wireless automatic meter reading and control system is useful and effective.
