Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are used in many application areas including health, agriculture and gaming. New advances in sensor technology make it pertinent to consider sharing a deployed WSN infrastructure by multiple applications, including applications which are designed after the WSN deployment. The state of the art technology can provide the opportunity to build an economic business model for application area such as smart home, health care etc. Currently building a smart home is a costly affair because of the involved infrastructure cost. In this paper we propose a VSN based business model for Smart home which supports efficient resource utilization through sensor virtualization and also minimizes the energy consumption through sensor scheduling.
