The permanent monitoring of structural behavior of monuments or historical buildings is crucial for the diagnosis of structural problems to enable the preservation of architectural and archaeological cultural heritage. The paper deals with the monitoring and static risk assessment using remote control technologies as a technique to determine dynamic parameter measurement in a wireless network system. Historical buildings, due to their age and exposure to the traffic vibrations in modern cities, can develop stresses inside the material, as well as damage sometimes comparable to that caused by small seismic actions. Therefore, a permanent monitoring of the micro-shocks/vibrations is suggested for application in the most vulnerable monuments. The use of remote control technologies makes feasible the development of a robust infrastructure to support the data collection for decision making before, during, and after emergencies.
