It is the right time to embark upon wireless sensor networks to overcome problems of the structures safety by analyzing them precisely using structural health monitoring techniques. This research lays emphasis on the development of an IOT based smart instrumentation for analyzing the health structure based on simple accelerometer (ADXL320) and MCU node. The accelerometer sensing paves way in determining the health structure by observing the non-linear vibrations in the structure. The real-time data acquired from the sensor is transmitted to a cloud platform (Thingspeak) using a secure API communication that helps client to observe the frequency response of the entire structure remotely. The developed instrumentation is a power efficient, low cost solution having a latency of 15 s, and remarkably efficient.
