monitored fire alarm system

g. , entirely concealed between the doorbell camera 106 and the surface. When the doorbell camera 106 is fixed onto the surface, a lens assembly 704 of the doorbell camera 106 faces away from the surface for capturing images of a field of view i. e. , a camera scene, and a button top 706 sits on a front surface of the doorbell camera and receives a user press for activating a remote chime device. In some implementations, the device housing 702 is mechanically fixed onto the mounting plate 800 when a first fastener structure 806 located at a front surface of the mounting plate 800 is fastened to a second fastener structure 726 located at the rear exterior surface of the device housing 702.

The user may be in the structure during this remote communication or outside the structure. As discussed above, users may control smart devices in the smart home environment 100 using a network connected computer or portable electronic device 166. In some examples, some or all of the occupants e. g. , individuals who live in the home may register their device 166 with the smart home environment 100. Such registration may be made at a central server to authenticate the occupant and/or the device as being associated with the home and to give permission to the occupant to use the device to control the smart devices in the home. An occupant may use their registered device 166 to remotely control the smart devices of the home, such as when the occupant is at work or on vacation. The occupant may also use their registered device to control the smart devices when the occupant is actually located inside the home, such as when the occupant is sitting on a couch inside the home. It should be appreciated that instead of or in addition to registering devices 166, the smart home environment 100 may make inferences about which individuals live in the home and are therefore occupants and which devices 166 are associated with those individuals. As such, the smart home environment may “learn” who is an occupant and permit the devices 166 associated with those individuals to control the smart devices of the home. In some implementations, in addition to containing processing and sensing capabilities, devices 102, 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, 114, 116, 118, 120, and/or 122 collectively referred to as “the smart devices” are capable of data communications and information sharing with other smart devices, a central server or cloud computing system, and/or other devices that are network connected.

As with other systems the cameras can be viewed on a monitor and with a app. The hardest part of a large wireless system such as this is plugging in all the cameras. Each camera will have a 12V DC adapter that plugs into a 120 volt AC wall outlet. How the power is run to each unit will need to be given some thought. This is not as difficult a hurdle though as having to run wires through walls. Summary Using a wireless security camera system with a DVR is a good option when adding wires is not an option. Keep in mind wireless doesn’t perform well in some cases and degrades with distance and barriers. One way to get a rough idea how well a system will work is to use a smartphone or tablet to stream YouTube videos and walk around to spots the camera will be located at. While there is different WiFi technology being used for each device it can give a general idea how well wireless will stream to a location. While WiFi cameras and DVRs have come a long way from the older early days they still can at times lag a bit. As long as you are aware of it limitations than you should have limited problems setting up and using a system.
