  • Patent number: 11056805
    Abstract: A cable splice includes a casing, a guide, and a pilot cup. The casing has a first opening and an interior cavity. The guide includes a receiving end and a shaft extending at least partially into the interior cavity. The pilot cup is integrally formed with the guide and frangibly connected to the shaft. The cable splice may also include a clamp positioned in the interior cavity and moveable between a loading position and a terminated position. A biasing member urges the clamp into the terminated position. During movement of the clamp from the loading position to the terminated position, the clamp contacts the guide causing at least a portion of the shaft to exit the interior cavity. The guide may also include a rib and a slot allowing the guide to fit in casings having different sized interior cavities.

  • Patent number: 11055945
    Abstract: A method for access control of premises having a plurality of units includes receiving a selection of one or more units of the plurality of units associated with the premises from a first user via a primary interface device communicatively coupled to a network. The method also includes sending a call to one or more secondary interface devices based on the selection. The one or more secondary interface devices can be located in the one or more selected units. Further, the method includes monitoring for a trigger condition after the call is sent to the secondary interface device. Upon occurrence of the trigger condition, the method also includes forwarding, via the primary interface device, the call to a mobile device of a second user associated with the one or more units.
