  • Patent number: 10643450
    Abstract: A monitoring system that is configured to monitor a property is described. The monitoring system includes a sensor that includes a battery and that is configured to generate sensor data based on activity in a portion of the property that is within a field of view of the sensor. The monitoring system further includes a monitor control unit that is configured to: after replacement of a battery of the sensor, receive and analyze the sensor data, based on analyzing the sensor data, determine a status of the portion of the property without recalibrating the field of view of the sensor, and provide, for output, a notification that includes data describing the status of the portion of the property.

  • Patent number: 10270959
    Abstract: Movements of a pan and tilt camera may be controlled by generating preview images of the view obtained by the camera in a particular direction. A camera may periodically scan its environment by moving through its range of motion and capturing a series of frames that can be stitched together. The resulting preview image may be a panoramic or spherical representation of the camera's possible viewpoints and may be displayed on a user interface for controlling the camera remotely. A live video from the camera may be displayed, and when a request to move a viewing angle of the camera is displayed, a corresponding portion of the preview image for the new viewing angle is displayed until a live video of the camera for the new viewing angle is available.

  • Patent number: 10200621
    Abstract: Movements of a pan and tilt camera may be controlled by reorienting the camera in response to discrete information obtained by the camera from a related but independent device such as a sensor so that the camera can capture video of events of potential interest to a user. Such sensors can respond to multiple stimuli such as, for example, sound, motion, light, pressure, humidity, and/or the like. The cameras can include, for example, pan and tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras that can be used in monitoring and surveillance operations. For example, the pan and tilt camera can be used as a surveillance camera at a home, business, vacation, or any other property.

  • Patent number: 9635224
    Abstract: A pan and tilt camera is described that comprises a cylindrical base. The pan and tilt camera comprises a tubular body having a top edge, a bottom edge, and a tubular side, the tubular side of the cylindrical body being transected at an angle to define a lower body and an upper body. The lower body has a bottom edge that corresponds to the bottom edge of the tubular body and a top edge corresponding to the angle of transection. The upper body has a bottom edge that corresponds to the angle of transection and a top edge that corresponds to the top edge of the tubular body. The pan and tilt camera comprises a cylindrical housing having a bottom edge that is movably attached to the top edge of the upper body. The cylindrical housing is coupled to a camera component.
