  • Patent number: 10205914
    Abstract: Systems and methods for streaming video and/or audio from wireless cameras are provided. Methods may include, at a network camera, receiving an instruction to begin video capture from a first network node, including information identifying a second network node. A first video stream may be sent from the network camera to the first network node, and a second video stream may be simultaneously sent to the second network node. The first and second video streams may be based on common video capture data, and may be sent at different bitrates, different resolutions, different frame-rates, and/or different formats. A parameter of the second video stream may be adjusted in response to performance data received from the second network node or another network node.

  • Publication number: 20190035261
    Abstract: Systems and methods for updating a control device may include receiving identifying information about an appliance, receiving identifying information about a component of the appliance, and sending a query to a remote server including information about the appliance and the component. The remote server may provide a response including configuration information for the control device, with a command for the appliance and a command that is specific to the component. A first input of the control device may be mapped to the command for the appliance, and a second input of the control device may be mapped to the command that is specific to the component, etc. When the second input is received, a command that is specific to the component may be generated.

  • Patent number: 10110855
    Abstract: Systems and methods for connecting wireless cameras are provided. A computing device may include a network interface, and a processor configured to establish a virtual USB bus available to an operating system of the computing device, establish a virtual USB camera device, and report to the operating system that the virtual USB camera device is connected to the virtual USB bus. The virtual USB camera may be configured to establish a network connection to a network camera using the network interface, receive video data from the network camera via the network interface, and send the video data via the virtual USB bus. Alternatively, the virtual USB camera may send the video data to the operating system as USB packets, without establishing a virtual USB bus.

  • Patent number: 9888214
    Abstract: Systems and methods for streaming video and/or audio from multiple devices are provided. A camera may include an optical sensor, a wireless communication device, and a processor configured to establish a first connection with a remote location, establish a second connection with one or more other cameras, and stream video from the cameras to the remote location. The remote location may be, for example, a remote website, a remote server, or a remote client device. The camera may be further configured to provide control signals to the other cameras, such as for controlling applications running on the other cameras.
