  • Patent number: 10958423
    Abstract: The automated changeover of a transfer encryption key from one transfer encryption key to another. This occurs in an environment in which a set of computing systems are to share one or more keys (such as a private and public key pair). The transfer encryption key is used to encrypt communications of the key(s) such that the encrypted key(s) may be transferred over a transfer system without the transfer system having access to the key(s). In order to perform automated changeover of the transfer encryption key, one of the set of computing systems encrypts the next transfer encryption key with the prior transfer encryption key. The transfer system provides this encrypted message to the remainder of the set of computing systems, which may then decrypt the encrypted message using the prior transfer encryption key, to find the next transfer encryption key.

  • Publication number: 20210002954
    Abstract: A motorized window treatment for controlling the amount of daylight entering a space through a window includes a covering material, a drive shaft, and a motor coupled to the drive shaft for raising and lowering the covering material. The window treatment also includes a spring assist unit for assisting the motor by providing a torque that equals the torque provided by the weight on the cords that lift the covering material at a position midway between fully-open and fully-closed positions to minimize motor usage and conserve battery life. The window treatment may comprise a photosensor for measuring the amount of daylight outside the window and temperature sensors for measuring the temperatures inside and outside of the window. The position of the covering material may be automatically controlled in response to the photosensor and the temperature sensors, or in response to an infrared or radio-frequency remote control.

  • Publication number: 20200272437
    Abstract: Provided is a method and system for building a compliance software service using reusable and configurable components. In one example, the method may include receiving a request to build a software in association with an identified jurisdiction from among a plurality of jurisdictions, retrieving a plurality of configurable software components which comprise built-in functionality that is generic across the plurality of jurisdictions, dynamically configuring non-generic functionality for the identified jurisdiction within the plurality of configurable software components based on inputs received from a user, and creating a software program for the identified jurisdiction based on the dynamically configured software components and storing a file including the created software program in a storage device.

  • Publication number: 20200217133
    Abstract: A motorized window treatment may provide a low-cost solution for controlling the amount of daylight entering a space through a window. The window treatment may include a covering material (e.g., a cellular shade fabric or a roller shade fabric), a drive assembly for raising and lowering the covering material, and a motor drive unit including a motor configured to drive the drive assembly to raise and lower the covering material. The motorized window treatment may comprise one or more battery packs configured to receive batteries for powering the motor drive unit. The batteries may be located out of view of a user of the motorized window treatment (e.g., in a headrail or in a battery compartment). The motorized window treatment may use various power-saving methods to lengthen the lifetime of the batteries, e.g., to reduce the motor speed to conserve additional battery power and extend the lifetime of the batteries.

  • Publication number: 20200081547
    Abstract: A load control system may include load control devices for controlling an amount of power provided to an electrical load. The load control devices may be capable of controlling the amount of power provided to the electrical load based on control instructions received from a gesture-based control device. The gesture-based control device may identify gestures performed by a user for controlling a load control device and provide control instructions to the load control device based on the identified gestures. The gestures may be identified based on images received from a motion capture device. A gesture may be associated with a scene that includes a configuration of one or more load control devices in a load control system. The user may perform one or more gestures to program the gesture-based control device.
