The Internet of Things idea and the rapid expansion of IPv6, moreover after IETF defined 6LoWPAN as a technique to apply IPv6 into IEEE 802.15.4 low-power wireless network standard is added potential of the USN connected to Internet and it made up IPv6-USN as the new architecture. However, if we implement IPv6-USN to home automation, the energy consumption of IPv6-USN node operation is bounded. There is the need to periodically replacing its batteries because it commonly used AA batteries as power source, but the complexity of home building characteristics make it is not easy. In this paper, we present our study to develop energy aware home automation in IPv6-USN infrastructure. Our goal is to develop a system that is robust which aware with energy consumption. We designed the home automation nodes with smart and energy efficient oriented RPL routing. By having efficient control transmission and optimal objective function, we can maintain operation performance level of our IPv6-USN home automation with energy consumption reduction around 20%, average latency about 1.0875s, and packet delivery rate above 88.875%.
