1. A method, comprising:
receiving, by a host system from a configuration station via an electronic network, a first selection of a first plurality of sensors for association with a first transmission destination for first sensor information based on measurements of the first plurality of sensors and a second selection of a second plurality of sensors for association with a second transmission destination for second sensor information based on measurements by the second plurality of sensors, the first plurality of sensors contained in a first set of wireless sensor nodes installed at a monitored location and the second plurality of sensors contained in a second set of wireless sensor nodes installed at a monitored location, the first set of wireless sensor nodes and the second set of wireless sensor nodes forming a single wireless network that communicates with the host system via a gateway device, wherein sensor data based on measurements by the first plurality of sensors and by the second plurality of sensors is transmitted to the gateway device via wireless communication for forwarding to the host system;
storing, by the host system, a first association between the first plurality of sensors and the first destination location and a second association between the second plurality of sensors and the second destination location;
receiving, by the host system via an electronic network, sensor information from a monitoring sensor in the building via the gateway device;
determining, by the host system, a transmission destination for the received sensor information, wherein when it is determined that the monitoring sensor is one of the first plurality of sensors, then the transmission destination is the first transmission destination, and when it is determined that the monitoring sensor is one of the second plurality of sensors, then the transmission destination is the second transmission destination; and
transmitting, by the host system, the received sensor information to the determined transmission destination via an electronic network.
