Today, wearable devices are rapidly beacoming a part of the Internet. Most of these devices should be run with low-capacity batteries for a long time. In this study, patient sensors used for health applications at home are aimed to transfer data to Internet in an energy efficent manner. The collected data will be transmitted to cloud service via a wireless network gateway. With the developed method, it will be possible to implement health care at home with sensors that have low power consumption, long distance communication capability and high reliability.
