This research developed a remote communication system for automatic water meter reading and charge calculation from the field of a house or apartment complexes within the same district. Developed system was applied to perform measurements of the pulse-sensing technology, the minimum power consumption, temperature compensation, short-range wireless communications technology, the handset and wireless communication capabilities of the DB management embedded software to efficiently control. Through this reading-related tasks that are required in a temporal, material and human resources can be minimized.
