How can I accurately measure the level of my cereal tank?

Hi 

I am a production sourcing manager. 

One of our plants produces glucose syrup with cereals as key ingredients. 

I need to monitor the level of the cereal silos accurately.  

 

Can you recommend a proven solution that can connect to my MES system? And also, if it is possible to get the level directly on my mobile phone?
