  • Publication number: 20120173687
    Abstract: A method of remotely managing a fielded device with a device management system (DMS). Via a processor, a DMS directive can be received on the fielded device. The DMS directive can include at least one system command for a DMS agent instantiated on the fielded device and intelligence information not previously stored on the fielded device that is necessary for the DMS agent to interpret the system command. Via the processor the DMS agent can be executed to process the system command using the intelligence information provided in the DMS directive to implement the system command without requiring an update to computer-readable program code that defines the DMS agent.

  • Publication number: 20120169685
    Abstract: An electrical device includes a screen with an aperture formed therein. The device includes a light source, a light sensor and a light conduit. The light conduit is operatively positioned between the aperture on one side and the light source and light sensor on the other. When the light source is activated, some of the light energy emitted therefrom is received in the light conduit. This light energy can travel through the light conduit to the aperture, through which the light energy can exit the device, thereby providing notice to a user of some condition. Light energy received in the aperture from outside the device can enter the light conduit and pass therethrough to the light sensor. The brightness of the screen can be adjusted based on the amount of light energy received by the light sensor.

  • Publication number: 20120174237
    Abstract: A mobile device includes a protected mode in which the device automatically locks itself after a period of inactivity. In the protected mode, the device can determine whether it is in a trusted location. If the device is not in a trusted location, the device continues in the protected mode. If the device is within a trusted location, the device can alter the protected mode, such as by disabling the protected mode. Alternatively, a parameter associated with the protected mode can be changed. For instance, the period of inactivity before the device automatically self locks can be increased. The trusted location can be defined by a specific network, specific wireless access point, specific geographic coordinates or an express user indication. Such a device can avoid the frustration of repeatedly locking and unlocking the device if the user is located in an environment in which privacy and security concerns are minimized.

  • Publication number: 20120172024
    Abstract: A master device transmits a de-subscription command to a base station with which it is subscribed. The de-subscription command indicates the master device intends to de-subscribe itself, which requires resolution of a conflict handling process. Upon resolution of the conflict handling process, the base station de-subscribes the master device.

  • Publication number: 20120170946
    Abstract: A method of translating raw formatted IR codes to discrete formatted IR codes. A raw formatted IR message representing an IR code can be detected. The IR message can include a raw formatted device ID including a first series of IR pulses and a raw formatted command ID including a second series of IR pulses. The IR message can be encoded into a definition that defines the first and second series of pulses contained in the IR message. Encoded data corresponding to the device ID and the command ID can be identified. The encoded data corresponding to the device ID can be matched to a particular device to identify a discrete formatted device ID. The encoded data corresponding to the command ID can be matched to a particular command to identify a discrete formatted command ID. The discrete formatted device ID and the discrete formatted command ID can be stored.

  • Publication number: 20120166966
    Abstract: A multi-media device and accompanying method of use are described herein. The device includes a housing, a display that is integrated within the housing and a processor. The processor can be operable to cause a user interface for multiple users to be displayed on the display. The user interface can include a user indicator that selectively displays a representation of each user associated with the multi-media device and provides a selection mechanism that provides a way for a user to select a particular representation. The user interface can also include a scrolling mechanism. When activated, the scrolling mechanism can cause the user indicator to selectively display the representations of the users based on a manner in which the scrolling mechanism is activated.

  • Publication number: 20120158201
    Abstract: In a load monitoring unit capable of monitoring power usage of an electrical device, a method of detecting a possible security breach is described herein. In one arrangement, the method can include the steps of setting a power threshold in the load monitoring unit in which the power threshold corresponds to the electrical device and monitoring power usage of the electrical device through the load monitoring unit. The method can also include the step of generating a security breach signal if the power usage of the electrical device reaches the power threshold.

  • Patent number: 8179886
    Abstract: An integrated VoIP phone that seamlessly integrates POTS phones and IP phones is provided. In an embodiment, the integrated VoIP phone includes a Session Initiation Protocol (“SIP”) registrar, a SIP session border control (“SBC”), a SIP proxy, a SIP feature server, a SIP-PSTN gateway, a user interface and VoIP telephony functionality found in traditional VoIP phones. In an embodiment, the integrated VoIP phone includes one or more analog telephone adaptors. Other VoIP entities, such as FXS adaptors, register themselves with the integrated VoIP phone through the SIP SBC. These other entities appear as extensions on the integrated VoIP phone and the outside network will only directly communicated with the integrated VoIP phone.

  • Publication number: 20120102574
    Abstract: A method of, and a processing system for, creating distinct user spaces. In a platform originally intended to be a single user platform, for each of a plurality of users, a first application used by the user can be assigned a user identifier (UID) unique to the user and the first application. The first UID can be associated with user data exclusively associated with the user and the first application to create a multi-user platform.

  • Publication number: 20120066223
    Abstract: A method and computing device for creating distinct user spaces are described. Concerning the method, in a platform originally designed as a single user platform, user data associated with a plurality of users can be stored and segmented. In addition, links to point to user data that is associated with a current user can be generated in which the link creation can exploit a predefined path associated with storing data in the single user platform. The method can also include the step of preventing the current user from accessing user data associated with non-active users.

  • Publication number: 20120046074
    Abstract: A communication system is described that includes a mobile communication device and a docking station with which the mobile communication device can be selectively engaged and disengaged. The mobile communication device includes telephony logic that enables a user to conduct a voice call using a first speaker/microphone and/or a first network interface provided by the mobile communication device when the mobile communication device is disengaged from the docking station and that enables the user to conduct a voice call using a second speaker/microphone and/or a second network interface provided by the docking station when the mobile communication device is engaged with the docking station. The telephony logic is also capable of dynamically switching between the use of the first and second speakers/microphones and/or the first and second network interfaces in response to detecting engagement or disengagement of the docking station during a voice call.
