Wireless Sensor Network is limited to the energy. Low-power and network security need us to pay adequate attention when it comes to WSN environment. We proposed a new security control protocol in this article named WZ-lcp protocol to meet the needs. The protocol depends on the synchronization of key and time. The key stored with int bytes in the facility and changing with time synchronization. The experimental results on digital wireless gas network show that the proposed protocol ensures security without costing power-wasting and data collision.
