Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) enable smart environments to create pervasive and ubiquitous applications, which give context-aware and scalable services to the end users. In this paper, we propose an architecture and design of a web application for a sensor network monitoring. Further, the variation in received signal strength indicator values is used for knowledge extraction. Experiments are conducted in an in-door room environment to determine the activities of a person. For instance, a WSN consisting of Moteiv’s Tmote Sky sensors is deployed in a bedroom to determine the sleeping behavior and other activities of a person.
