  • Patent number: 10433250
    Abstract: Time division multiple access (TDMA) media access control (MAC) adapted for single user, multiple user, multiple access, and/or MIMO wireless communications. Various com systems may include smart meter stations (SMSTAs) and/or wireless stations (STAs). Appropriate coordination is made with respect to such communication devices to ensure appropriate uplink (and/or downlink) communications between a network manager or coordinator (e.g., an access point (AP)) and the SMSTAs and/or STAs. With respect to SMSTAs, the relative duration of time that such communication devices are awake and operative versus asleep (or in a reduced power and/or functionality state) can be significant. Certain implementations may include a relatively large number of such communication devices (e.g., 10s, 100s, 1000s, or more), and appropriate coordination and scheduling of such communications to/from them is made using one or more variations of TDMA signaling (e.g.

  • Publication number: 20190289263
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for presenting notifications at a client device based on analysis of content generated by electronic devices in a network-connected security system. The introduced technique can be applied as a filtering process to reduce the number of notifications sent by a network-connected security device to a client device. In an example embodiment, content such as video captured by a video surveillance camera is processed to detect events occurring in a surveilled environment. Notifications are then presented at a user device for events that satisfy some specified criterion.

  • Patent number: 10412687
    Abstract: Various of the disclosed embodiments improve the operations of a combined access point/Cable modem. Though the access point component and the Cable modem component may perform operations in different spectrums, harmonics in the Cable spectrum may interfere with operations, e.g., in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range, of the access point. Some embodiments implement a remediation and/or channel transition process for the access point following detection of Cable-related interference. During remediation, the device may, e.g., adjust the wireless power levels, EDCA backoff times, signal thresholds, etc. In some embodiments, if the remediation actions prove ineffective, the wireless peers may be relocated to a channel further from the interfering Cable harmonics. The determination to remediate or reallocate may be based on various contextual factors, e.g., the character of the peer devices and the applications being run.

  • Publication number: 20190260661
    Abstract: A client device is configured to communicate with an access point over a wireless network, exchanging data with the access point over a selected communication channel. The client device stores an identifier of the selected communication channel. After the wireless connection to the access point has ended, the client device initiates a process to reconnect to the access point over the selected communication channel using the stored identifier.

  • Publication number: 20190259260
    Abstract: A network management system manages the operation of a home security system in a communication network, such as a mesh network. The home security system can include multiple components such as a camera, a lighting device, a security alarm, a doorbell switch and doorbell chime, and a fingerprint sensor, which connect with the communication network to perform various operations. The network management system monitors environmental parameters of the communication network, such as parameters associated with the access points and components of the home security system, determines an access point to which a component of the home security system is to be connected for efficient operation of the home security system, and connects the component to the communication network via the determined access point.

  • Publication number: 20190260987
    Abstract: A technique is described for selecting an encoder to encode video captured by a network-connected camera system based on characteristics of deployment of the network connected cameras system. The network-connected camera system may include one or more cameras and a base station connected to each other via a network, which can be a wireless network. A processing system, for example at the base station, receives data indicative of characteristics of deployment of the network-connected camera system, processes, the received data to select an encoder, and causes the one or more cameras to process captured video using the selected encoder. In some embodiments, encoder selections can be continually updated based on changes in the deployment of the network-connected camera system.

  • Publication number: 20190260496
    Abstract: Systems and methods are introduced for rate control of data transmissions in a wireless camera system. In an illustrative embodiment, a computing system selects primary data rates and corresponding fallback data rates to use for transmission of video data. The computing system selects the data rates that provides high-throughput without resulting in wasted energy from retransmissions. The selection may be based upon transmission conditions as well as the record of past data rates, the number of attempts for the data rates, and whether they were successful. These data may be stored as a state machine or for machine learning analysis. Finally, the video data may be aggregated prior to transmission to reduce overhead and improve efficiency.

  • Publication number: 20190260814
    Abstract: The disclosure is related to adaptive transcoding of video streams from a camera. A camera system includes a camera and a base station connected to each other in a first communication network, which can be a wireless network. When a user requests to view a video from the camera, the base station obtains a video stream from the camera, transcodes the video stream, based on one or more input parameters, to generate a transcoded video stream, and transmits the transcoded video stream to a user device. The base station can transcode the video stream locally, e.g., within the base station, or in a cloud network based on transcoding location factors. Further, the camera system can also determine whether to stream the video to the user directly from the base station or from the cloud network based on streaming location factors.

  • Publication number: 20190261370
    Abstract: An access point is configured to communicate with a wireless client device over a plurality of wireless communication channels. The wireless client device has an active operation state and a standby operation state. The access point detects a property of each of a first wireless communication channel and a second wireless communication channel, and applies a policy to the detected properties to select one of the first wireless communication channel and the second wireless communication channel. While the wireless client device is in the active operation state, the access point steers the client device to communicate with the access point over the selected channel.

    Abstract: The disclosure is related to adaptive encoding of video streams from a camera. A camera system includes a camera and a base station connected to each other in a first communication network, which can be a wireless network. When a user requests to view a video from the camera, the base station obtains an encoded video stream from the camera and transmits the encoded video stream to a user device. The base station monitors multiple environmental parameters, such as network parameters, camera parameters, and system parameters of the base station, and instructs the camera to adjust the encoding of the video stream, in an event one or more environmental parameters change.

  • Patent number: 10356681
    Abstract: Client roaming techniques, such as those set forth in 802.11k, are extended to access point-based client roaming in a distributed multi-band wireless networking system. In particular, access points (APs) implement a series of algorithms that compare signals and make decisions on when to switch a client from one AP to another AP in a distributed multi-band wireless networking system. The invention exploits to advantage the fact that the APs can communicate with each other via the dedicated backhaul.
