The paper is concerned with the possibilities of long-term monitoring of constructions using modern wireless sensors and systems. There are currently many constructions under long-term monitoring performed by modern sensors. The monitoring enables an assessment of the current health of the construction or it can be used to recalculate and adjust the BMI models and subsequently evaluate the static and dynamic resistance of the construction. The sensors and systems installed enable the detection of hidden defects or newly emerging failures and damage. Using the results obtained from the monitoring of the construction, it is possible to predict and carry out a timely repair or maintenance of the construction, which will ultimately decrease the financial and time-related costs, ensure greater safety and prolong its lifetime and resistance.
