  • Patent number: 10305770
    Abstract: A uniform protocol can facilitate secure, authenticated communication between a controller device and an accessory device that is controlled by the controller. An accessory and a controller can establish a pairing, the existence of which can be verified at a later time and used to create a secure communication session. The accessory can provide an accessory definition record that defines the accessory as a collection of services, each service having one or more characteristics. Within a secure communication session, the controller can interrogate the characteristics to determine accessory state and/or modify the characteristics to instruct the accessory to change its state.

  • Publication number: 20180091327
    Abstract: In some implementations, a user device (or resident device) can notify the user of anomalous accessory states. For example, the user device can determine which accessory states and contexts represent normal accessory states in the respective contexts. Similarly to scene suggestions, the user device can analyze historical accessory state data and context data to determine an accessory state pattern that indicates a normal state of an accessory for a given context. The user device can compare the current state and/or context of an accessory to historical accessory state data to determine when the current state of the accessory is abnormal for the current context. If the current accessory state is abnormal for the current context, the user device can present a notification to the user informing the user of the anomalous accessory state.

  • Publication number: 20180091381
    Abstract: In some implementations, a user device can automatically generate scene suggestions and/or trigger suggestions. For example, a scene can be a collection of accessories and corresponding accessory states. When the scene is invoked, the user device can cause the accessories associated with the scene to assume the corresponding accessory states. The user device can automatically determine the accessories and/or corresponding accessory states for a scene based on historical patterns of use represented in historical accessory state data. The user device can automatically determine triggers for automatically invoking scenes based on historical patterns of use. For example, the user device can analyze historical context (e.g., location, time, accessory state, etc.) data associated with accessory state transitions to determine triggers for automatically invoking a scene. The user device can present suggest scenes and/or triggers to the user of the user device.

  • Patent number: 9906255
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for maintaining hardware history profiles for a software-based emulator. In one embodiment, the disclosed software-based emulator monitors the history of the actual hardware device in a secondary device history, the history of the emulated hardware is presented within a primary device history. However, the primary device history is linked to the secondary device history, and receives the device wear history therefrom. In another aspect of the present invention, wear-leveling strategies are disclosed for handling various update sizes. Unlike existing solutions which are optimized for a single SIM that receives small data updates; various embodiments of the present invention are suitable for handling varying data sizes.

  • Patent number: 9577976
    Abstract: Registering a client computing device for online communication sessions. A registration server receives a message that has a push token that is unique to the client computing device and a phone number of the client computing device from an SMS (Short Message Service) transit device, which received an SMS message having the push token from the client computing device and determined the phone number of the client computing device from that SMS message. The registration server associates the push token and the phone number and stores it in a registration data store, which is used for inviting users for online communication sessions.

  • Patent number: 9332129
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for the automated updating of forwarding preferences for communications in a telecommunications network. In one embodiment, the network includes a wireless (e.g., cellular) network with user mobile user devices configured to detect a change to their configuration (such as a user changing out SIM cards or virtual access clients). In response, the device causes an update to its associated communication forwarding preferences to reflect the change. If the configuration alteration meets certain criteria (e.g., changes the phone number at which the device may be reached), the device sends a forwarding message instructing a network entity (e.g., routing server) to direct communications addressed to the old phone number to the new phone number. Thus, a user with two or more user profiles (such as two different carrier accounts) may be reached at any number associated with any of the profiles, even if only one profile is currently active.

  • Patent number: 9277347
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide for a wireless computing device that comprises a set of one or more radio components to transmit and receive wireless communications on the device. Additionally, the wireless computing device includes processing and memory resources that individually or in combination provide multiple wireless applications, a radio object, and an arbitration component. The multiple wireless applications are each capable of generating a user-interface for enabling user-input in connection with wireless activities performed with that wireless application. The radio object interfaces the multiple applications with the set of one or more radio components. The arbitration component is configured to arbitrate at least one of (i) requests made by each of the wireless applications to the radio object for access to one or more of the radio components in the set, or (ii) responses from the radio object to requests made by each of the wireless applications.
