Water consumption is a major global concern. Despite the availability levels, the water resource is of paramount importance for countless activities. In order to optimize the management of water consumption of electric showers in commercial segments, such as clubs, gyms, in addition to public segments such as beaches and highways, which are widespread in the Brazilian scenario, this study aims at the development of a prototype of smart shower that is capable of being activated remotely through a mobile device. Besides allowing to inform the amount of water to be used. In this article, all the processes for projecting the solution are demonstrated, as well as the experiments to prove effectiveness, with calibration time analyzes, metered validation of expenses during their operation, efficiency of communication with remote accesses and validation of availability as a service. Based on market research, the feasibility of developing this technology has proven to be pioneering and national, using IoT (Internet of Things), Cloud Computing and messaging resources optimized for use in low-cost devices. Such tool, integrated with remote accesses, enables a management that can optimize up to the operating costs of the aforementioned commercial organizations.
