  • Patent number: 9891907
    Abstract: Device component status detection and illustration apparatuses, methods, and systems determine and generate visualizations of updates timelines indicating device components associated with a remote connected device at different times. A device component status detection and illustration apparatus may include a memory and processor with instructions to: obtain device selection parameters, determine one or more remote connected devices that satisfy the device selection parameters, and identify a remote connected device selected from one or more remote connected devices by a user. The instructions may further be executed to generate visualizations of updates timelines associated with the remote connected device, including information regarding device components associated with the identified remote connected device as of selected update times. This allows the apparatus to present information regarding the status of a particular device at different points in time.

  • Patent number: 9747096
    Abstract: The Remote Embedded Device Update Platform Apparatuses, Methods and Systems (“REDUP”) transforms telemetry inputs via REDUP components into remote embedded updates outputs. The REDUP may include a memory and processor with instructions to: obtain a remote embedded device connection request message from a remote embedded device and analyze the message to determine a version of embedded instructions on the remote embedded device. With that, the REDUP may determine if other remote embedded devices similar to the remote embedded device have provided request messages by searching a remote embedded device connection request message database. This allows the REDUP to determine if a potential issue requiring updates on the remote embedded device exists. With that, the REDUP may determine and provide an update for the remote embedded device.

  • Publication number: 20160267730
    Abstract: The SmartKey Apparatuses, Methods and Systems (“SmartKey”) transforms start SmartKey app, login authentication, pair OEM, passcode, add record trigger, refresh record request, poll for SmartKey, update settings request, etc. inputs via SmartKey components into handle record, save device settings update, register SmartKey with OEM, register SmartKey with key server, etc. outputs. In one embodiment, the SmartKey has a smart key housing containing: a memory, a processor disposed in communication with the memory, a touch screen disposed in communication with the processor for display of smart key interaction with devices associated by device ID, a sensor array disposed in communication with the processor, at least one programmable context aware engageable input indicator disposed in communication with the processor, a connector disposed in communication with the processor and configured to communicate with outside devices, and a transceiver disposed in communication with the processor.
