In this paper, feasibility of risk monitoring of buildings in two Wireless Sensor Network is presented, firstly by using MICA Mote and then by MEMS. Also, it will be verified that the MEMS sensors are superior as it provides high quality sensor data and no data loss as compared to MICA Mote. In order to assess earthquakes the structures is monitored firstly by using a smart sensor based on the Berkeley Mote-platform. The Mote has on-board microprocessor and ready-made wireless communication capabilities. In this paper, the performance of the Mote is investigated through shaking-table tests employing a two-story steel structure.
