In some implementations, the video and/or audio data is stored on server system 164 e. g. , in video and source data database 509. In some implementations, the video stream is stored on a server distinct from server system 164. In some implementations, after a motion start is detected, the relevant portion of the video stream is retrieved from storage e. g. , built in sensors 490, interfaces e. g. , communication interfaces 404, radios 440, and/or other components of the smart device 204, and for preparing and sending processed data to a device for review e. g. , client devices 220 for review by a user; and device data 434 storing data associated with devices e.

My title at the grocery store isn’t the ‘alarm guy’ anymore. It’s ‘that’s the guy who did my smart house. ’”That isn’t to say dealers don’t view them as competition, however. For the second consecutive year SDM’s Industry Forecast Study cited DIY security providers as their greatest competition in the coming year, with 33 percent of respondents choosing DIY companies as their No. 1 competitive threat. National/global security companies followed, at 28 percent of respondents. However, wireless phone providers/broadband providers fell to 7 percent as a perceived threat, down from 11 percent last year. In all cases, it seems dealers and manufacturers alike view competition as untapped opportunity, a philosophy that also factors into the healthy optimism this year. Welsh has similar observations: “We have 5,000 security dealers we work with and they had a great year. We are hearing that the DIY systems are addressing a different segment of the market. They are not necessarily cannibalizing the market.

In some implementations, each of these databases is part of the server database 316 e. g. , part of data storage database 3160. The server system 164 receives one or more video streams 504 from the video source 501 and optionally receives event candidate information 502 such as event start information e. g. , motion start information and source information 503 such as device settings for a camera 118 or 106 e. g. , a device profile 3165 for camera 118 or 106. In some implementations, the event processor sub module 3146 communicates with the video source 501. The server system sends alerts for events 512 and event timeline information 513 to the client device 220. The server system 164 optionally receives user information from the client device 220 such as edits on event categories 514 and zone definitions 515.
