  • Patent number: 11129084
    Abstract: Methods and systems for monitoring a premises are described. A server external to the premises may be in communication with a system at the premises. The server may receive status data from the system from one or more interfaces. If a loss of communication occurs on one interface, then the status data may be received via a second interface. The server may determine timing information for status data received via the first interface and for status data received via the second interface. The server may send, based on the timing information, a message to a computing device indicating the loss of communication.

  • Publication number: 20210280305
    Abstract: A data logger for collecting, storing, and transferring data received from a sterilizer is described herein. The data logger is sized and shaped to fit into a slot or opening defined by the sterilizer and previously used for receiving a printing device to output sterilizer data on a printer ribbon. The data logger includes a circuit to facilitate receiving data formatted to conform to at least two different transmission protocols (e.g. RS-232 serial data transmission protocol or TTL serial data transmission protocol). The circuit allows the data logger to be used with different styles of sterilizers and thus increases the set of viable sterilizers. The data logger includes at least one memory device for storing the logged data. This memory device may be a removable component. The data logger may also include a port or connector element for a second memory device such as a USB stick.

  • Patent number: 11044616
    Abstract: A self-organizing network switching matrix is provided. The self-organizing network switching matrix can receive a first set of communications data from a set of base transceiver stations wherein the communications data includes a radio simulcast. It can send the first set of communications data to a subset of remote transceiver units in a set of remote transceiver units. A second set of communications data can be received from the first subset of remote transceiver units. A set of network activity data can be generated based on monitoring the receiving of the second set of communications data from the first subset of remote transceiver units for a defined network activity. The subset of remote transceiver units can be adjusted based on the network activity data. In this regard, the self-organizing network switching matrix facilitates automated capacity management providing just in time network dimensioning.

  • Publication number: 20200160304
    Abstract: A system for storing key information for duplicating a key includes a kiosk comprising a key identification module. After identifying key blank and bitting pattern information for one or more master keys associated with a user, the kiosk receives a user request to store the identified key information on a remote device associated with the user. Upon verification of the user's identity, the kiosk may encrypt the identified key information, and transmit it to the remote device for storage. On a future visit, upon verification of the user's identity, a kiosk comprising a key identification module and a key cutting module may receive and decrypt the previously stored key information from the remote device. The kiosk may cut the key for the user via the key cutting module based on the previously stored key information.
