, one or more rotating portions of a ring consisting of a single displayed color or two or more different displayed colors. Each of the patterns can conform to a visual language and correspond to a camera status and/or a camera processing operation. For example, a color or a pattern of two or more different colors static or dynamic can indicate that the camera is on or off, has an active or inactive connection to a server e. g. , a server that performs image processing or that distributes video and notifications to remote users, is actively processing local information from the environment, or has received a notification or status information from another smart device in the home environment or a server. In some implementations that include a speaker, the physical feature e. g. , a light ring can be controlled by the camera to display patterns that correspond to audible beats/rhythm of music or audio messages being played from the speaker in a range of colors selected to match the tempo/feeling of the music or audio messages. Providing such information via light patterns is advantageous as this is readily perceived by all/most users in the environment even if they do not have access to camera smart phone application without intruding on activity of occupants in the environment, as audible alerts could do sometimes. FIG. 5 illustrates a representative system architecture 500.

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is the most flexible. While it can replace a hardwired doorbell supplying 8 24 volts of electricity, its rechargeable battery means you could put this doorbell anywhere. And the optional Ring Chime add on can even sound an audible chime inside the house, just like a traditional doorbell would. RemoBell also runs on batteries and can be installed anywhere. But it doesn't connect to existing doorbell wiring, which means the doorbell won't chime inside the house, only on your smartphone. The August Doorbell Cam requires 16 24 volts of electricity and can replace only a wired mechanical doorbell. Field of View: Do you want a narrow view of just the person at the door, or do you want to see everything around your entryway?The Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Ring Pro boast 160 degree viewing angles, which let me see my whole porch and driveway. The RemoBell and August Doorbell cams have tighter angles, of 120 degrees. Video Resolution: The higher the resolution, the sharper the image, which will make it easier to identify people at your door. Both of Ring's doorbells record video in 1080p, while the RemoBell and August Doorbell Cam record in 720p HD. August's resolution is actually 1280 x 960, but that's not quite "full" 1080p resolution.
