Every now and then, the world is shocked with news that another building has collapsed causing many innocent people who are occupying the building to lose their lives and bringing untold miseries and sufferings to those who are lucky to survive the tragedy. And, on many occasions, unless being attacked deliberately, a building does not collapse out of the blue. Most of the incidents of buildings tumbling down show evidence the structure or foundation of the buildings have been shifted or disturbed due to earth movement beneath the buildings over a period of time. For a high-rise square or rectangular shaped structure, the possibility of the building leaning to its side due to earth movement is most likely. It will either lean to the east, west, south or north, or that matter, north-east, south-east, south-west or north-west, very much in the cross formation. An automatic detecting system that constantly monitors the stability of the building, if installed in a high-rise building will be most beneficial. Any leaning of the building by any degree to either any of the directions, the system is able to detect immediately. Any such detection, the management of the building will be the first to be informed so that immediate action can be taken to investigate the seriousness of the inclination where remedial work can be undertaken. However, if the management somehow fails to response, the system will send a message via SMS to the occupants when the inclination has reached the danger level so that the occupants have enough time evacuate the building before it collapses.
