The communication in wireless sensor network is divided into several layers, because of each of them do their role, the wireless communication is possible, the MAC (Medium Access Control) layer of the one of sensor network communications layer is used to the data errors, control flow, and manage resources. Using MAC Protocol, it ensures the communication between sensor node. In this paper, highlighted the energy efficiency of the S-MAC, T-MAC protocol it emphasized the efficiency of energy by lessening the woken time of all nods effectively, transmitting and receiving the control packet on only necessary nods through use of a method that RTS packet is added to SYNC packet and making other nods sleep. On sending SYNC+RTS packet and receiving the packet, nod noticed that it wasn't necessary to be awaked on this period, would be in Sleep mode, demonstrated mathematically that energy is more effective than existing protocol, and simulated with MATLAB.
