Environmental information (temperature, humidity, vibration, $CO_2$, gas leakage, etc.) of building is an essential item to manage and monitor a building. For intelligent building, it is necessary to get temperature and illumination information to save energy and crack information to prevent structural problems. Moreover, temperature and gas leakage information to alarm a tire precaution, or humidity information to maintain comfortable environment. However, there have not been many researches on systems for gathering environmental information and building maintenance due to high costs. In this paper, wireless sensor network technology is applied to collecting building environmental information. Wireless sensor network is one of the latest issues and has low-power consumption, low-cost, self-configuration features.
