This paper presents the methods for the ZigBee network reliability enhancement and the battery life time optimization. The paper begins with the introduction of the common communication problems due to the broken links between sensor module and message relay, or between different relays. Extra message hand shake mechanisms are added to solve different problem mentioned at the beginning. Finally, a general purpose reliability enhancement component is developed as a state machine which can be work together with ZigBee protocol to enhance ZigBee network communication reliability. Moreover, the battery life time of the sensor module during link broken is considerably increased after the enhancement.
