Wireless devices can be used to monitor and record a broad range of phenomena. Their advantages include ease of installation and maintenance and considerable reduction in wiring costs. The addition of battery power and radio communication to such wireless devices can result in a completely The operating environment of monitoring systems is often hostile, due to temperature fluctuations, humidity, electromagnetic noise, and other interfering phenomena. The system should be able to adapt to changing conditions to maintain dependability in its operations This paper presents the case study of adapting a flood detection device to the environmental threat of submersion.
