Measurements of rainfall carried out are generally automatic, but how many parties have carried out research using automatic rain gauge instruments. The rainfall level data obtained can be used to detect flooding so that it reduces the occurrence of natural disasters earlier. The principle works are when rain falls the water is collected and the height will be detected. The Sharp GP2Y0A41SK0F sensor will be read on Arduino Uno and pass through the signal conditioning circuit and then forwarded to the Water Pump to pump water so that the water comes out of the tube and the data will be stored. ESP8266, the Wi-Fi module will send data to Android. Measurements are made when the water is full the value of max 53.2 means heavy rain. After the data is obtained, then look for the standard error of the measurement tool for 7 days. The design of the model builds a tool using a funnel with a diameter of 14 cm and a height of 26 cm. Based on the calculation of the design that has been made the measuring instrument developed is able to measure rainfall up to 26000 mm rain height.
