  • Publication number: 20170231200
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for initiating a monitoring session between a user device and a pet monitoring system including a base station and a plurality of monitoring devices. The base station receives a request to monitor the pet from the user device, activates the plurality of monitoring devices, receives data from the plurality of monitoring devices, locates the pet based on the received data from the plurality of monitoring devices, selects a selected monitoring device of the plurality of monitoring devices based upon at least one of the data from the plurality of monitoring devices and the location of the pet, and transmits the data from the selected monitoring device to the user device.

  • Patent number: 9642340
    Abstract: A system for monitoring a pet includes a base station and a first monitoring device configured to capture first data relating to a first monitored area and to transmit the first data to the base station. The system further includes a second monitoring device configured to capture second data relating to a second monitored area and to transmit the second data to the base station, wherein the first monitored area and the second monitored area are adjacent. The base station is configured to determine a location of the pet as being in at least one of the first monitored area and the second monitored area. The base station is configured to determine a status of the pet based on at least one of the first and second data.

  • Patent number: 9286733
    Abstract: A system and methods using applications for entry and exit from registered locations, where a registered location has an associated geo-fence of any size or shape. A registered location may be mobile or stationary. An internet-connected device running an app transmits the current geographic location of the device, and a remote processing center executes a default action when finding correspondence between the geo-fence of a registered location and the current geographic information of an end user's device, and in one embodiment, the default action may be to enter and pay for parking at a registered location.
