Window Sensor

, the doorbell camera 106 of a smart home environment 100. The doorbell camera 106 has a field of view of an entryway of the smart home environment 100. The motion stream is a video stream depicting movement or information regarding amount of motion in a scene. The server 164 determines based on an analysis of the motion stream that a visitor is approaching the entryway, and performs a facial recognition operation based on one or more frames of the motion stream. The server 164 then determines based on an outcome of the facial recognition operation whether the person is known to the smart home environment. A time window is initiated in response to the determination that a visitor is approaching, and the time window is optionally predefined to correspond to a reasonable amount of time for the visitor to complete approaching/reaching the entryway. During the time window, the server 164 obtains contextual information from one or more sensors of the smart home environment 100, and determines whether an action from the visitor e. g. , a doorbell press, a door knock is detected within the time window. In accordance with an action being detected within the time window, a first type of response is initiated. Examples of the first type of response include sending a first type of notification to a user of a client device.

Our engineering team is doing their best. Please continue to support Alfred and stay tuned!We truly appreciate your feedback. Would you like to let us know if you have a better idea in our app name?If you want, please contact us via Facebook: eetAlfredAs for the battery notification, we will take your advice into consideration. Making Alfred a better service is always what we are working on, and we can never accomplish it without your participation. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any other idea!I love this app so much and am so happy I found it. My wife and I were wondering about the best way to keep an eye on our lil puppy while we’re at work and make sure he’s not barking or whining all day. We were looking into buying cameras or expensive pet monitoring equipment when we found the app Alfred. We were able to use our tablets we normally leave at home to easily monitor our little pup for free. We can always see how he is doing from our phones and even talk through the microphone to calm him down or just to check in before we get home. The night mode feature helps us tremendously since he is a black lab and hard to spot sometimes. The app also lets us swap through accounts easily to switch our viewing tablets and lets us know our battery percentage at all times.

4. The smart devices may further communicate with each other via a connection e. g. , network interface 160 to a network, such as the Internet 162. Through the Internet 162, the smart devices may communicate with a server system 164 also called a central server system and/or a cloud computing system herein. The server system 164 may be associated with a manufacturer, support entity, or service provider associated with the smart devices. In some implementations, a user is able to contact customer support using a smart device itself rather than needing to use other communication means, such as a telephone or Internet connected computer. In some implementations, software updates are automatically sent from the server system 164 to smart devices e. g. , when available, when purchased, or at routine intervals. In some implementations, the network interface 160 includes a conventional network device e.
