Internet has changed human's life by providing anytime and anywhere connectivity with anyone. As many advancements in technology, sensors, processors, transmitters, receivers, etc. are now available in very cheap rate. Hence, Internet of things (IoT) can be used in our daily life. Home area network (HAN) is one of the important applications of loT. However, deploying HAN in developing and under developed countries like in African countries is not easy due to the lack of Internet connectivity and stable electricity. The aim of this paper is to model a HAN for resource constrained environment over IoT, which are focused on network connectivity and energy stability. The proposed HAN model provides the resource constrained module composed of network connectivity function and energy stability function to support the two constraints based on the IoT basic module. The proposed HAN model could be applied to various countries HAN applications with poor electricity supply and network connectivity. Keywords - Home Area Network, Resource Constrained Environment, Network Connectivity, Electricity Connectivity, Han Model.
