With the new released WiFi systems and home automation hubs, I noticed an increased interest towards simplicity and minimalism in both design and functionality, which meant a simple design and a single LED which showed the status of the system with different colours. Of course, for me it did not make much sense since there is no intuitive way to understand all those flashing or solid colours, so I said that a voice feedback would make much more sense. It seems that Nest Protect actually implemented such a system and, using an omnidirectional microphone, it will speak to you in words besides also using the appropriate colours: there are two types of alerts, the Heads up it’s a calmly spoken warning + yellow LED, when smoke or CO levels are rising but have not yet reached dangerous levels and the Emergency Alerts when smoke or CO are at dangerous levels, the Nest Protect notifies you where is the problem, it turns the LED red and triggers the loud sound alarm – 85dB. Head Up and Emergency alerts can be silenced by pressing the circular button. Note: This device is not intended for people with hearing problems it lacks a flashing strobe of light and the 85db alarm may not be enough in such cases. The Nest Protect runs self tests regularly every 200 seconds to see the status of the batteries and sensors and you can also run a full test to check at any time during this process, you’ll notice a blue light rotating around the button.

g. , server system 164. In accordance with various implementations of the application, a doorbell camera 106 integrates a camera 118 in a smart doorbell device 106. The doorbell camera 106 has a doorbell button, a camera module, a processor and memory including programs executed by the processor, and is electrically coupled to a remote chime device that rings in response to a user press on the doorbell button. The doorbell camera 106 operates at a first camera mode and a second camera mode. In both of these two modes, the doorbell camera 106 continuously records video information from a field of view of the doorbell camera 106, and communicates with a remote server 164 to receive instructions from and/or upload the recorded video information to the remote server 164. More importantly, the doorbell camera 106 is configured to detect whether there is a user press on the doorbell button. In accordance with a determination that no user press is being applied on the doorbell button, the first camera mode is activated to bypass the remote chime device and couple the camera module of the doorbell camera 106 to a remote transformer for receiving a power supply therefrom. Conversely, in accordance with a determination that a user press is being applied on the doorbell button, the second doorbell mode is activated to couple both the camera module of the doorbell camera 106 and the remote chime device to the remote transformer. For example, the camera module and the remote chimer device are electrically coupled in series and both powered by the remote transformer at the second doorbell mode, thereby enabling the remote chime device to ring concurrently while the camera module is recording the video information. In some implementations, while the doorbell button is being pressed i.
