In some implementations the hub device extends capabilities of low capability smart device to match capabilities of the highly capable smart devices of the same type, integrates functionality of multiple different device types—even across different communication protocols, and is configured to streamline adding of new devices and commissioning of the hub device. In some implementations, hub device 180 further includes a local storage device for storing data related to, or output by, smart devices of smart home environment 100. In some implementations, the data includes one or more of: video data output by a camera device, metadata output by a smart device, settings information for a smart device, usage logs for a smart device, and the like. In some implementations, smart home environment 100 includes a local storage device 190 for storing data related to, or output by, smart devices of smart home environment 100. In some implementations, the data includes one or more of: video data output by a camera device e. g. , microphone for capturing audio, and output devices e. g. , speaker for outputting audio. In some implementations, the cameras 118 are each configured to operate in a day mode and in a low light mode e. g.

The LED indicator of the doorbell camera 106 is configured to, based on a value of the supply monitoring signal, display on a surface of the device housing 702 one of a set of predetermined visual patterns, thereby sending a visual message to a user of the doorbell camera 106 to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. For example, the supply threshold may be 8V. When the input AC voltage is greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a green color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. In contrast, when the input AC voltage is not greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a red color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is insufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. Referring to FIG. 10D, in some implementations, the bypass unit 1012 may also function as a voltage meter to determine whether the transformer 1010 can provide a supply voltage sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106 which normally consumes more power than a conventional doorbell. The bypass unit 1012 includes a voltage monitoring unit 1012A, an LED indicator 1012B, and bypass circuit 1012C. The supply monitoring signal is generated by the voltage monitoring unit 1012A of the bypass unit 1012, and the LED indicator 1012B is located in the bypass unit 1012. The LED indicator 1012B sends a visual message to the user to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. Likewise, in some implementations, the remote chime 1006 may be configured to ring differently based on the supply monitoring signal, thereby indicating whether the input AC voltage is sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. Arrangements shown in FIG.

This inexpensive lifesaving product can detect smoke and warn a family of a fire or impending fire. It is very important to have a battery operated smoke detector in the event of loss of power, in addition to a fire. It is recommended that a battery operated smoke detector be on each floor of your home. Finding the right product to protect your family can be difficult with so many reports finding the weaknesses in this life saving device. Smoke alarms that never go off, ones that go off too frequently due to false alarms, can create a challenge in finding a good quality alarm. We have selected alarms that have been tested and proven to provide the protection your family needs.
