Increasingly, buildings are being fitted with sensors for the needs of different sectors, such as education, industry and business. Using Internet of Things (IoT) devices combined with analysis of data being generated by these devices, it is possible to infer a number of metrics, e.g. building occupancy and activities of occupants. The information thus gathered can be used to develop software applications to support energy management, occupant comfort, and space utilization. This survey explores the use of sensors in smart building environments, identifying different approaches to employ sensors in buildings. The most commonly used data-driven approaches for activity recognition in such buildings is also investigated, concluding by highlighting current research challenges and future research directions in this area.
