I need similar program..... I need to monitor the state of led from a water level controller i.e when the tank is emply it show off the led, which means that tank is now emply so call the water company to get it filled. I need to automate this process..... I already have the water tank controller system installed which is not connected to internet it just monitor both underground and overhead tank and maintain the water level. Problem comes when there is no water in the underground tank... I need this notification/SMS to be sent on my mobile so that when ever there is no water in the underground tank i can call the water tanker to fill the water at my place. I need a program/code for this.
