Abstract: Water and energy are among the greatest expenses of University buildings and therefore the monitoring of its consumption is of capital importance. In this work it is proposed a monitoring system based on the Internet of Things (IoT), consisting in a network of physical sensors embedded with electronics and software that allow getting real-time data of any measurable parameters such as level, flow, pressure, or power and make them available online. Such system can be a powerful tool for building managers and maintenance teams, helping to the optimization of water and energy use. An IoT system based on the premise of real-time monitoring with a public access internet interface is being developed for the Polytechnic School in Salvador, Bahia. The objective is to monitor a series of water meters as well as the level of the water tanks, creating a fastresponse leakage detection system. These data will be deployed in a user-friendly interface that, as an additional feature, will also be able to show real-time data of electricity consumption as well as the renewable energy generated in the building through a series of solar panels and one small wind turbine. This system must be reliable and scalable in order to create a Smart Campus for the whole UFBA. In this paper, the architecture of such a system is presented together with the developed prototypes and the results of the monitoring of this particular building.
