With the emergence of Internet of Thing (IoT), a gigantic rise has been seen in smart applications. IoT is going to be ubiquitous in the near future. Billions of sensors will be installed for the implementation of IoT applications which will generate a massive amount of data. Such massive amount of sensors, data and devices would cost huge amount of money. In addition to the installation cost, energy consumption by the IoT devices emerges as a prominent area of concern. Although IoT applications in themselves are considered to be very energy efficient, however their own energy consumption ratio is very high. Energy efficiency of IoT would make it the long term technology in the upcoming years. In this paper, a case study of an IoT based application is done. To reduce the energy consumption during data transmission in IoT based applications a solution is proposed and implemented into studied application to enhance its energy efficiency. Scheduling of data transmission is the proposed solution which mainly focuses on the energy consumption during continuous data transmission in IoT based applications which keeps the networking device or gateway active all the time and results in drainage of energy continuously. The proposed solution aims to reduce the energy consumption in IoT application by transmitting data to the cloud in an energy efficient way.
