A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of many sensor nodes with low cost and power capability Based on the deployment, in the sensing coverage of a sensor node, typically more nodes are covered. A major challenge in constructing a WSN is to enhance the network life time. Nodes in a WSN are usually highly energy-constrained and expected to operate for long periods from limited on-board energy reserves. To permit this, nodes and the embedded software that they execute – must have energy-aware operation. Because of this, continued developments in energy-efficient operation are paramount, requiring major advances to be made in energy hardware, power management circuitry and energy aware algorithms znd protocols. During Intrusion Detection in sensor networks, some genuine nodes need to communicate with the Cluster Head to inform about the details of malicious nodes. For such applications in sensor networks, a large number of sensor nodes that are deployed densely in specific sensing environment share the same sensing tasks. Due to this, the individual nodes might waste their energy in sensing data that are not destined to it and as a result the drain in the energy of the node is more resulting in much reduced network life time. In this paper, a novel algorithm is developed to avoid redundancy in sensing the data thereby enhancing the life time of the network. The concept of Power Factor bit is proposed while a node communicates with the Cluster Head. The simulation results show that the network life time is greatly enhanced by the proposed method.
