An energy harvesting sensor system architecture emerges through multiple generations of sensor development and deployment for smart building applications. Energy-harvesting sensors for monitoring plug-loads and circuit panels, light fixtures, air flow, hot water flow, and door openings are presented. This article is part of a special issue on energy harvesting.
