  • Publication number: 20240108929
    Abstract: In one implementation, a computer-implemented method includes receiving, at a computer system, information that indicates that a fire has been detected in a building and that a fire suppression system within the building has begun dousing the fire; monitoring sensor information from one or more sensors located within the building; determining, by the computer system and based on the sensor information, whether the fire has been extinguished; activating, in response to determining that the fire has been extinguished, a feature to turn off a water supply to the building, the feature being presented on a computing device for a user who is associated with the building; receiving, after activating the feature and from the computing device, a command to turn off the water supply; and transmitting, by the computer system, a control signal that causes an electromechanical device to close a water valve within the building.

  • Publication number: 20240082720
    Abstract: The disclosed systems and methods provide for generating real-time egress plans for users in a building, based on the users' current locations. As the users' current locations change, egress plans associated with the users can be dynamically modified in real-time. The egress plans can also be generated, modified, and/or trained based on inputted information about the user. The disclosed technology can include a mobile application for presenting, in a centralized interface, information about user-specific egress plans, training the user for different emergency scenarios, improving or changing features in the building to improve safety, and user profiles. The mobile application can include training simulation games to help prepare the users to safely egress during an emergency. The disclosed technology can also predict building component and structure emergency risk levels. The disclosed technology can also designate zones in the building based on possible egress routes.

  • Publication number: 20240087026
    Abstract: A derived order gives a participant simultaneous access to liquidity across multiple books, destinations, or marketplaces. The derived order can be placed and anchored in one trading venue and simultaneously replicated in another trading venue. A participant can place the derived order in the lit book as an anchor book and replicate the order in the hybrid book and/or the dark book, or alternatively, the participant can place the derived order in the hybrid book as an anchor book and replicate the order in the dark book. A trading engine can be configured to replicate an order in different books and guarantee that each order is only executed once. When an order is replicated, the trading engine can check the stored record to see where the order was placed, and then adjust or cancel an order in one book when it is being fulfilled in a different book.

  • Patent number: 11615490
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for identifying issues in a building. In one aspect, a method includes receiving information describing an issue with a building, accessing data that identifies (i) a plurality of components that are included in the building and (ii) features of the plurality of components, identifying one or more candidate components that have at least a threshold likelihood of being a cause of the issue, and performing some action in response to remedy the issue. For example, the method can include selecting a candidate service provider from among a plurality of service providers based on a comparison of (i) the one or more candidate components and (ii) information identifying technical qualifications for the plurality of service providers, transmitting a service request for the issue to the candidate service provider, receiving a response from the candidate service provider, and scheduling, based on the response, a service appointment.
