  • Patent number: 9996710
    Abstract: The combination of an electronic device and a security system therefor. The electronic device has a first component with an upper surface and a second component configured to be moved relative to the first component around a first axis. The security system has a holding system with a first holding assembly and at least one track assembly configured to guide translational movement of the first holding assembly in a path relative to the electronic device in a display position relative to a support at a display location. The at least one track assembly is secured to the support. The first holding assembly is guided from a starting position into a holding position. The first holding assembly in the holding position has a portion that resides over the upper surface of the first component adjacent to the first axis with the electronic device in the display position so as to engage the upper surface to thereby limit upward movement of the first component relative to the support.

  • Publication number: 20180108231
    Abstract: A wireless system for monitoring portable articles includes a base unit comprising a programmed controller operatively associated with a base wireless communication circuit and a base alarm indicator circuit. At least one wireless sensor comprises a housing enclosing a programmed controller operatively associated with a sensor wireless communication circuit, for communicating with the base wireless communication circuit. A security assembly is configured to: maintain the housing in an operative state on a portable article being monitored; and generate an alert signal if the security assembly is altered with the housing in the operative state in a manner that allows separation of the housing from a portable article being monitored. The base unit is programmed to activate the base alarm indicator circuit if the at least one wireless sensor generates an alert signal or if the base unit senses a communication error with the at least one wireless sensor.
