  • Patent number: 11032128
    Abstract: This application is directed to a hub device that may operate as a substitute for a backend device. For instance, an audio/video recording and communication device (A/V device) may communicate with the backend device using a first communication link. The first communication link may include a network-connected device, such as a router. Based on the A/V device determining that the first communication link is disrupted, the A/V device may configure settings in order to communicate with the hub device using a second communication link. The hub device may then receive data from the A/V device using the second communication link. If the hub device is able to still communicate with the backend device, the hub device may send the data to the backend device. However, if the hub device is unable to communicate with the backend device, then the hub device may store the data and/or transmit the data to a client device.
