In this paper, we propose a scheme to prolong the lifetime of the sensor network by reducing the power consumption of the sensor node. The proposed algorithm reduces the number of transmissions and sensing at the application layer. We combine the VIS scheme with the MSZ algorithm and call it as the SZM/VIS algorithm. The actual temperature data was collected using the sensor nodes to assess the performance of the proposed algorithm. The proposed algorithm was implemented through the programming

Experimental results show that the SZM/VIS has a slightly improved transmission ratio than that of the MSZ while has the periodic transmission capability like as the MSZ. Also the SZM/VIS can significantly reduces the sensing ratio like that of the VIS. Our algorithm has the advantages of instantaneous, simplicity, small overhead and robustness. Our algorithm has just negligible side effects by controlling the parameter properly depending on the application types. The SZM/VIS algorithm will be able to be used effectively for the applications that need to be managed within a certain range of specific properties, such like crop management.
