  • Patent number: 10754673
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and computer readable media are described for tailoring instructions for configuring a smart device based on feedback received from the smart device and/or based on feedback received from a device that is separate from the smart device. Some implementations additionally or alternatively relate to utilization of data corresponding to previous installations of similar smart devices to tailor provided instructions in order to mitigate the reoccurrence of past issues during configuration of smart devices. Some implementations additionally or alternatively relate to proactively suggesting and/or providing, to a user, guidance related to a smart device in response to determining the smart device is to be configured by the user and/or in response to determining a complete configuration of the smart device has not occurred.

  • Patent number: 10638292
    Abstract: Systems and Methods disclosed herein relate to providing a message to an application programming interface (API). The message includes a request for data from a data model, a submission of data to the data model, or both; and a host selection between: a representational state transfer (REST) host and a subscription-based application programming interface (API) host, wherein the REST host receives REST-based messages and the subscription-based API host receives messages in accordance with a standard of the subscription-based API host; wherein the request for data, the submission of data, or both are configured to create, delete, modify, or any combination thereof data related to a smart-device environment structure, a thermostat, a hazard detector, or any combination thereof stored in a data model accessible by the API.

  • Patent number: 10593190
    Abstract: Systems and methods of providing a security system which presents operational status information to a user are disclosed. A sensor can detect a security event and receive identifying information from an electronic device. A controller device is communicatively coupled to the sensor to receive the security event, to determine whether the identifying information detected with the sensor is from the electronic device of an authorized user, and to provide an operational status message to the electronic device via a communications link when it is determined to be authorized. The electronic device provides identifying information to the sensor, receives the operational status message via the communications link, and displays the operational status message.

  • Patent number: 10558323
    Abstract: A computing device is associated with one or more electronic devices in a smart home environment. A current environment status is identified from a hierarchy of three or more alert levels of the smart home environment based on a combination of device states of a subset of electronic devices. The current environment status is indicated by an environment status indicator that is displayed in a display area of the computing device concurrently with device state icons corresponding to the device states of the subset of electronic devices. Further, based on the current environment status of the smart home environment, a feature sets is determined for a smart home application executable on the computing device for interacting with the smart home environment. The determined feature set includes selectable commands for performing device functions associated with the current environment status.

  • Patent number: 10339773
    Abstract: A home security system may infer a mode of operation based on indications it receives regarding a user's behavior. The disclosed implementations provide for a vacation mode of operation that defines a response for a security event that differs from the response that would be provided by the home security system for the same security event if it operated in another mode such as an away mode.

  • Patent number: 10303137
    Abstract: A controller is provided for coordinated control of various subsystems, such as a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) subsystem, a camera subsystem, and a security subsystem, in a structure such as a home, by allowing automatic as well as manual changes to be made to the subsystems within their respective constraints. The controller may change the states or settings of the subsystems automatically upon occurrences of certain conditions, or allow the user to change them by switching a structure mode for the subsystems between a home mode and an away mode. A change in the structure mode may effect changes to some or all of the states or settings for some or all of the subsystems.

  • Patent number: 10223904
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are provided for automatic security system mode selection. A set of signals may be received from sensors distributed in an environment with a security system. The security system may be in a first mode. An occupancy model may be received. An occupancy estimate may be generated for the environment based on the set of signals from the sensors and the occupancy model. Mode rules may be received. The mode rules associate occupancy estimates with modes of the security system. A second mode for the security system may be determined based on the occupancy estimate and mode rules. The second mode may be different from the first mode. The mode of the security system may be automatically changed from the first mode to the second mode.

  • Publication number: 20180367954
    Abstract: In a method for detection of an anomaly related to information about a location of a mobile computing device, the anomaly related to the information about the location of the mobile computing device can be detected by a processor of the mobile computing device. A communication about the anomaly can be provided via a user interface of the mobile computing device. The anomaly can be caused by a bug in an operating system of the mobile computing device. Notifications about the anomaly can be provided to a user of the mobile computing device or other mobile computing devices registered to a shared account.

  • Patent number: 10140301
    Abstract: A portable electronic device with a touch-sensitive display is configured to separately display sets of media player controls, including a first set and a second set. The device displays the first set while playing a first media item and detects gestures on the touch-sensitive display while displaying the first set and playing the first media item. In response to detecting a first gesture on a first media player control in the first set, the device activates the first media player control and controls playing of the first media item in accordance with activation of the first media player control. In response to detecting a second gesture, the second gesture distinct from the first gesture, the device replaces display of the first set with display of the second set and maintains playing of the first media item.
