Detecting location within a network

Systems and methods for detecting the presence of a body in a network without fiducial elements, using signal absorption, and signal forward and reflected backscatter of RF waves caused by the presence of a biological mass in a communications network.

Detecting location within a network

Systems and methods for detecting the presence of a body in a network without fiducial elements, using signal absorption, and signal forward and reflected backscatter of RF waves caused by the presence of a biological mass in a communications network.

Configurable mesh network for an electrical switching system

Systems and methods for retrofitting existing wired electrical systems that can be controlled through one or more of: local touch, remote wireless device, or by a computer. The systems and methods for the switches (standalone single switches, switches as part of a multiway switch, or some combination thereof) provide a local network for command and control, allowing retrofit of an existing electrical system without the need for additional wiring.

Intelligent electrical switch

An intelligent electrical switch that may be installed in an existing circuit to replace one switch in a multi-way wiring geometry, wherein a sensor detecting current on the neutral line determines the circuit state and allows intelligent actuation of a mechanical switch element from an attached computer system based on instructions received.

Electrical monitoring and network enabled electrical faceplate

Systems and methods for monitoring high activity facilities with low profile devices using a range of sensing elements including wireless communications hardware for a wide variety of tasks. The devices may be installed on an existing electrical system and may measure, among other things, electrical current on various circuits.

Reconfigurable power control system

Systems and methods for a centrally controlled power distribution including both AC and DC power rails wherein power and control are generally handled separately. Rather than users making use of hardwired switches for primary command and control, the system generally uses wireless switch modules to control the outlets. By including a DC power rail, devices which use DC directly can eliminate the need for an onboard AC-DC converter.

Detecting location within a network

Systems and methods for detecting the presence of a body in a network without fiducial elements, using signal absorption and signal forward and reflected backscatter of radio frequency (RF) waves caused by the presence of a biological mass in a communications network.

可重新配置的电力控制系统

本发明涉及用于在建筑物内形成中央控制式DC及AC电力轨系统的系统及方法。所述轨利用集中式控制器连同多个分布式控制器,以允许向附接到所述轨的插座选择性地分配或不分配所述轨中的电力。此允许在用户无需利用硬连线开关而是利用通常无线开关模块的情况下来分配电力,所述无线开关模块可实施为硬件及/或软件以控制所述插座。此也允许给被设计成利用DC电力的装置直接供应来自DC电力轨的此种电力,而无需使每一装置包含机载AC‑DC转换器。

REVERSE-BEACON INDOOR POSITIONING SYSTEM

Indoor positioning systems and methods incl. a reverse­-beacon for location determination and presence sensing technology. The reverse-beacon is any device comprising a transceiver and a computer operating with system nodes. The systems and methods utilize wireless signals of any device that adheres to a general-purpose communi­cation protocol to provide location-based services and operate by passively licensing to wireless communications that take place during the ordinar­ily course of operation of a wireless network irrespective of the presence of the reverse-beacon.

Reconfigurable power control system

Systems and methods for the creation of a centrally controlled DC and AC power rail system within a structure. The rails utilize a centralized controller along with a plurality of distributed controllers to allow for power in the rails to be selectively distributed or not distributed to outlets attached to the rails. This allows for power to be distributed without the need for users to utilize hardwired switches, but to instead utilize generally wireless switch modules, which may be implemented in hardware and/or software to control the outlets. It also allows for devices designed to utilize DC power to be directly supplied with such power from the DC power rail without the need to include onboard AC-DC converters with each device.

Configurable mesh network for an electrical switching system

Systems and methods that can be retrofitted into an existing wired electrical system replacing existing switches whether as a standalone single switch or part of a multi-way switch configuration that can be controlled locally nominally by touch, controlled remotely by a remote, or controlled remotely by a computer. The systems and method provide that the switches establish a local network allowing for retrofit or construction of a structure or facility with electrical system automation without the need for additional wiring.

Systems and methods for environmental monitoring of high activity facilities, generally comprising low profile devices having sensing elements for various environmental uses, designed to provide the wireless communications network as a basis for performing a wide variety of tasks. The devices may be installed on an existing electrical system and may measure, among other things, electrical current on various circuits.

Intelligent electrical switch

An intelligent electrical switch comprising a conventional mechanical switch connected to a computer system in communication with an external device and receiving instructions therefrom. The switch may be installed in an existing circuit to replace one switch in a multi-way wiring geometry, and includes a sensor detecting current on the neutral line. By determining the circuit state, the switch can determine whether, when instructions are received wirelessly to power the circuit on or off, the mechanical switch element should be toggled.
