  • Patent number: 9712491
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to using a control service to control external access to APIs of IoT devices on a private network. An external application can request access to an API, and in response, the control service can monitor broadcasts from the IoT devices indicating what APIs they have available. If a match exists, the control service can request user authorization to allow the requested access. The user can grant or deny the requested access, and place limitations on the authorized access. The control service uses this information to open a connection between the requesting application and the IoT device having the requested API, and via this connection, the requesting application can access and control the device running the requested API.

  • Patent number: 9313863
    Abstract: A device controls a lighting condition of smart objects. A networking framework is executed on the device and the smart objects. An RF signal is broadcast from the device to the smart objects. The signal requests the objects to transmit an ultrasound signal. Ultrasound signals from the objects are received in the device via microphones. A range and direction to each object may be determined based on reception times of the ultrasound signals. A map of the location of the objects is generated. The objects are controlled, via the networking framework, based on the map. A user interface overlay that shows the current lighting condition and location of objects using icons is presented on the device display. The icons are interactive controls for the objects, which may be interacted with for control of the corresponding object. The objects may be manually or automatically controlled to achieve a lighting condition.

  • Publication number: 20150006296
    Abstract: Systems and methods for operating Internet of Things (IoT) devices are disclosed. A method may include receiving a notification message from a producer IoT device and presenting the notification message via a display of a consumer IoT device. In addition, a manual request from a user to dismiss the notification message is received, and an auto-dismissal of the notification message from displays of one or more other consumer IoT devices is prompted. A multicast or broadcast message from the consumer device may be transmitted to the one or more other consumer IoT devices to request the auto-dismissal of the notification message from displays of the one or more other consumer IoT devices. Alternatively, the consumer device interact with the producer IoT device to facilitate the producer IoT device to trigger the auto-dismissal of the notification message from the displays of the one or more other consumer IoT devices.
