Each of the above identified elements may be stored in one or more of the previously mentioned memory devices, and corresponds to a set of instructions for performing a function described above. The above identified modules or programs i. e. , sets of instructions need not be implemented as separate software programs, procedures, or modules, and thus various subsets of these modules may be combined or otherwise rearranged in various implementations. In some implementations, the memory 306, optionally, stores a subset of the modules and data structures identified above. Furthermore, the memory 306, optionally, stores additional modules and data structures not described above. FIG. 3B illustrates various data structures used by some implementations, including an event record 3168 i, a user profile 3163 i, and a device profile 3165 i. The event record 3168 i corresponds to an event i and data for the event i. In some instances, the data for motion event i includes event start data 31681 indicating when and/or how the event started, event segments data 31682, raw video data 31683, event end data 31684 indicating when and/or how the event ended, event features data 31685, scene features data 31686, associated user information 31687, and associated devices information 31688. In some instances, the event record 3168 i includes only a subset of the above data.

Ring would not disclose the number of communities with such partnerships. Sharing video is always voluntary and privacy is protected, according to the company and police. "There is nothing required of homeowners who participate in the subsidies, and their identity and data remain private," spokeswoman Brigid Gorham said. She said customers can control who views their footage, and no personally identifiable information is shared with police without a user's consent. Realistically, though, if police want video for an investigation, they can seek a search warrant. Tech industry analyst Carolina Milanesi said engaging with police and offering incentives is a "very smart move by Ring" and a missed opportunity for competitors, including Google's Nest and smaller companies such as Arlo Technologies and SimpliSafe.

We mounted and hardwired each of the detectors to the apparatus and noted how long it took to install each one using the included manufacturer instructions. After connecting each alarm to a Wi Fi network, we installed its associated mobile app on a smartphone. We evaluated how easy each app is to use and tested how long it takes for notifications to arrive on your mobile device when there is an emergency. We also assessed how well each device connects to third party smart home automation systems. We contacted each company, when possible, to assess how helpful its representatives are when resolving potential technical problems. Detection EfficiencyOur detection efficiency testing is for comparison purposes only and was not designed to replace industry standard safety certifications carried by each unit we reviewed.
