A wireless sensor network (WSN) in its simplest form can be defined as a network of sensors denoted as nodes that blankets a region and provides information about it. They can sense the environment and communicate the data gathered from the monitored field through wireless links. Processing is done at the sensor level. WSN have numerous applications ranging from indoor deployment scenarios in the home and office to outdoor deployment scenarios in natural and military settings. In some of these scenarios, lives may depend on the timelines and correctness of the sensor data obtained from dispersed sensor nodes. The analysis aims at employing WSN for one of its industrial application, i.e. Â¿For Monitoring HVAC SystemsÂ¿. Significant advances in computer technology have made it possible to develop a wireless sensor network (WSN) capable of monitoring and operating a scheduling system for heating, ventilation, and air- conditioning (HVAC). The proposed system includes features such as monitoring, measurement, networking, and control. This system provides an energy efficient solution to the monitoring and controlling of a HVAC system. This design enables users to make cost-effective energy decisions with no interaction with the HVAC system.
