  • Patent number: 10334699
    Abstract: A multi-mode control device is provided for controlling an external load device. The control device includes a high-power interface, a low-power interface, and a control module. The high-power interface can be electrically coupled to a high-power module providing current from an external power source to the load device. The low-power interface can be electrically coupled to a low-power module. The high-power interface can receive a first current from the high-power module. The low-power interface can receive a second current from the low-power module that is less than the first current. The low-power interface can prevent the first current from flowing to the low-power module. The control module, which is electrically coupled to the high-power interface and the low-power interface, be powered by one or more of the first and second current.

  • Patent number: 10303457
    Abstract: Techniques for initiating update operations are described. In implementations, updates are gathered for a computing device, and grouped based on whether the updates involve a device restart and/or shutdown operation to be installed. Thus, updates that involve a restart can be installed as a group, such as part of a single update and restart operation. In at least some implementations, an update and restart operation for installing updates can be scheduled. A user can be notified of the upcoming update and restart operation, such as via notifications presented in various ways on a computing device. When a scheduled time for an update and restart operation arrives for a device, a variety of factors can be considered in determining whether to initiate the operation. For instance, user presence information and device state information can be considered.

  • Patent number: 10223176
    Abstract: A visual scripting system can provide support for handling event-specific messages received through an event messaging system. The messaging system can provide event messages over one or more event buses that have a determined behavior context. An event node of a visual scripting system can enable a developer to specify event handlers to detect specific types of event notifications sent on a specified event bus, as well as specific actions to be taken in response to those event notifications, such as to send additional event messages, all of which comply with the behavior context. Once the event node is configured and properties and actions defined, the corresponding script can be generated by the visual scripting system, to be complied and executed as part of a user application.
