  • Publication number: 20190217795
    Abstract: An electronic device for use in a vehicle and method for controlling the same are provided. The device includes a battery sensor configured to detect a battery voltage when connected to a vehicle's battery, and a processor in communication with the battery sensor. The processor is configured to monitor the battery voltage of a vehicle's battery using the battery sensor and identify at least one transition in the battery voltage. The processor is also configured to determine an operational state of the vehicle based on the transition and the battery voltage, and control the electronic device in accordance with the operational state of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180103507
    Abstract: A volatile material dispenser includes a housing configured to receive a refill containing a volatile material and a wick, the housing including a first cavity supporting a heater arrangement and a second, separate cavity supporting a fan arrangement for dispersing a vapor plume of the volatile material. The first cavity is substantially unobstructed between an upper, interior surface of the housing and an upper surface of the heater arrangement. The housing also includes an aperture through which the vapor plume exits the housing and a plurality of openings through which air from the fan arrangement directs the vapor plume away from the aperture. When a refill is received within the hosing, the upper surface of the heater arrangement is disposed nearer the aperture than a distal end of the wick, and a radial gap is formed between the heater arrangement and the wick.

  • Patent number: 8983279
    Abstract: A method of emitting a volatile material includes the step of programming a volatile material dispenser to include at least two intensity levels, wherein upon initiation of each of the intensity levels for an operating cycle, a resistor is operated at a first percentage of its power rating for a first period of time. Upon selection of a first of the at least two intensity levels and after the first period of time, the resistor is operated at a second percentage of its power rating for a remainder of an operating cycle. Upon selection of a second of the at least two intensity levels and after the first period of time, the resistor is operated at the second percentage of its power rating for a second period of time and, after the second period of time, operating the resistor at a third percentage of its power rating for a remainder of an operating cycle.

  • Patent number: 7641364
    Abstract: An adapter device for a lamp or light fixture includes a male connector, a female socket and control circuitry. The adapter supports at least one RGB LED cluster positioned so as to emit a colored light show. The male connector is configured to be received in a conventional light socket. The adapter also includes a slot for receiving and securing a replaceable volatile active insert for enabling the device to emit an active ingredient from the insert when the insert is secured in the slot. A conventional light bulb or a CFL may also be connected to the female socket as a source of illumination. Thus, a single adapter is used to combine a conventional light source/colored light show source/volatile active source.

  • Publication number: 20090284183
    Abstract: An auto shutoff mechanism that automatically turns off power to a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) in the presence of an improper use, or an excessive temperature condition, is disclosed. The auto shutoff includes a temperature transducer, a temperature monitoring circuit, or a microprocessor with memory, and a supporting control circuit. The temperature monitoring circuit, or a predetermined algorithm stored in memory, monitors the ambient temperature for an excessive temperature condition. Upon detection of an excessive temperature condition, the temperature monitoring circuit instructs the control circuit to turn off power to the CFL. Once the detected temperature falls below a predetermined level, power is restored to the CFL.
