This manuscript describes the development of a wireless sensor system for long term monitoring of temperature, humidity and heat flux reading within building structural elements, including places that are hard to reach using wired sensors. The system was tested in cold Latvian climate in 3 different buildings. The main objectives during the development phase were the maximization of network operational lifetime, ensurance of work stability and maintenance cost reduction to make the system feasible for wide use in practical applications. An optimal radio module and microcontroller combination yielded sufficient signal range and data transfer stability, as well as efficient control of energy consumption.
