  • Publication number: 20220027136
    Abstract: An example device for image transfer can include a memory device, a service cubby to house a computing device and coupled to the memory device, a controller coupled to the memory device. The controller can retrieve, from the memory device, an image requested for transfer to the computing device in the memory device, perform an integrity check on the image, and transfer, via a local network of the device, the image to the computing device while the computing device is coupled to the service cubby.

  • Publication number: 20210402231
    Abstract: An example apparatus includes a cabinet body and a first storage receptacle at the cabinet body. The first storage receptacle is to temporarily store an electronic device. The apparatus further includes a second storage receptacle at the cabinet body. The second storage receptacle is to temporarily store another electronic device. The second storage receptacle is separate from the first storage receptacle to prevent physical access to the first storage receptacle through the second storage receptacle. The apparatus further includes a fire suppression mechanism to independently suppress a fire in the first storage receptacle or a fire in the second storage receptacle.

  • Publication number: 20210335070
    Abstract: Examples associated with service kiosk access are described. One example includes monitoring the contents of a set of compartments of a service kiosk. Each compartment is capable of storing at least one electronic device in a manner that provides a power to the electronic device and a data connection to the electronic device. Upon reaching a specified condition, a request is generated for a technician to provide physical service for the service kiosk. The specified condition may be related to a status of the service kiosk, contents of the compartments of the service kiosk, and/or statuses of the contents of the compartments of the service kiosk. The technician is authenticated as being physically present at the service kiosk, and physical access to compartments associated with the specified condition is granted to the technician.

  • Patent number: 11039319
    Abstract: In an example implementation according to aspects of the present disclosure, a method may include receiving, at an optical receiver of a first device, a transmission signal from an optical transmitter source of a second device. The method may include decoding the transmission signal to generate a pairing code, and using the pairing code to pair the first and second devices together for wireless communication. The method may include granting a level of access control of the first device to the second device via the wireless communication, wherein the level of access control is based on the pairing code.

  • Patent number: 10939298
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to application access based on a network. For example, a computing device may include a processor. The processor may detect that the computing device is connected to a particular network and may identify an identifier associated with the particular network. The processor may access settings indicating a subset of applications associated with the identifier of the particular network, where the subset of applications is part of a set of applications available on the computing device. The processor may restrict access to the subset of applications based on the settings.
