  • Patent number: 10440165
    Abstract: A doorbell system can include a doorbell and a chime. The chime can emit a notification sound in response to a visitor pressing a button of the doorbell. Electrical switches can be electrically coupled between the doorbell and the chime to control the flow of electricity to the chime. In some embodiments, the switches prevent the chime from emitting notification sounds.

  • Patent number: 10440166
    Abstract: A doorbell system can be used to block a first electricity that is less than a first threshold from entering an electronic chime. By blocking the first electricity from entering the electronic chime, the electronic chime is not allowed to emit a notification sound. The doorbell system can also be used to allow a second electricity that is greater than the first threshold to enter the electronic chime. By allowing the second electricity to enter the electronic chime, this can allow the electronic chime to emit a notification sound in response to a visitor being present.

  • Patent number: 10150425
    Abstract: Vehicle speaker systems described herein enable different people to simultaneously hear different sounds while traveling in the same vehicle (without using headphones). This revolutionary result is based on novel speaker configurations and uses. Some vehicle audio systems include a first speaker system located above a first seat of a vehicle and configured to emit a first sound based on a first audio file. Vehicle audio systems can also include a second speaker system coupled to the vehicle and configured to emit a second sound based on a second audio file that is unrelated to the first audio file while the first speaker system emits the first sound.

  • Publication number: 20180233003
    Abstract: Doorbells can send data to each other to enable a first doorbell user to warn a second doorbell user regarding a suspicious visitor. A first user can indicate a first trait of a visitor via a first remote computing device. The first user can create a user group to enable the members of the user group to use their doorbells to take pictures of suspicious visitors and to send the pictures of the suspicious visitors to other members of the user group.
