Smart Grid Home/Office Energy Management and Automation (Advanergy): Portfolio of Ten U.S. Patents

Key elements in the emerging Smart Home sector are the CEM® (Certified Energy Management) systems that integrate the electrical, mechanical, process and building infrastructure in a home or office by determining the optimum solutions to reduce energy consumption in a cost-effective manner. This comprehensive portfolio covers an Internet Protocol-based solution that is secure, yet non-intrusive and inexpensive. It uses a global standard, is Plug-and-Play installable, and is compatible with all third-party technology including the latest electric utility “smart meters” and Zigbee systems.

IoT, Smart Home and Gigabit Optical Access Network (Mazed): Four U.S. Patents and an Open Continuation

Next time you are sitting in a traffic jam late for work, think about a totally different traffic jam taking place in homes and offices across the U.S. - all that data trying to get to and from Internet-connected devices and appliances through limited bandwidth causes enormous bandwidth jams between all those access points. This portfolio enables critical connectivity by the Internet-of-Things and Smart Home installations by creating an intelligent subscriber subsystem that provides a solution to this bandwidth challenge at a lower cost.

This portfolio includes:

  1. An intelligent subscriber unit for machine-to machine (M2M) or Internet-of-Things (IoT) connectivity in the home or office
  2. Gigabits or more bandwidth-per-second at a home or office at significantly lower cost than installing new hardware
  3. Intelligent, self-learning appliances such as a self-learning telephone
Patent No.Title
8,073,331Dynamic intelligent bidirectional optical and wireless access communication system
8,548,334Dynamic intelligent bidirectional optical access communication system with object/intelligent appliance-to-object/intelligent appliance interaction
9,426,545Dynamic intelligent bidirectional optical access communication system with object/intelligent appliance-to-object/intelligent appliance interaction
9,723,388Dynamic intelligent bidirectional optical access communication system with object/intelligent appliance-to-object/intelligent appliance interaction

The portfolio also includes U.S. Patent Application 20170272847 for an "Access communication subsystem with object/intelligent appliance-to-object/intelligent appliance interaction." The company that acquires this portfolio will be able to provide critical connectivity via an intelligent subscriber subsystem to compete with Amazon Alexa or Google Home, and it provides a solution to the need for greater bandwidth between access points. Included with the Patent Brokerage Prospectus is E-o-U documentation.

Smart Device-Enabled Electronic Testing Equipment: U.S. Patent 9,575,091

The challenge in conducting testing of lighting and other electrical components is tracking and recording the test results. Just seeing the results on the small screen of the actual testing device means that the user has to stop and manually record everything - or try to remember what the reading was. The invention covered by this patent solves that problem by creating multiple testing devices - clamp testers, multimeters, meghometers, light fixture testers, and others - that interface with a smart phone, PC, tablet or other device so the test results are displayed on the screen. Once displayed, the test results can be recorded, analyzed or transmitted to a third party. Users of this technology include electrical contractors, building and fire code inspectors, maintenance personnel, and home and business owners.

U.S. Patent No. 9,575,091 for a "Testing Device for Electrical Safety Using Wireless Communication" has 19 Claims, so it is a robust property. It would be a critical acquisition for any manufacturer of electrical testing equipment that wants to offer value-added features to its current product line. Software could easily be developed that would interpret test results once they are received by the smart device. Extensive Evidence-of-Use is available upon request.

Security for the Internet of Things (Svigals): Three U.S. Patents

U.S. Patent Nos. 9,319,404, 9,344,437 and 9,432,378 for "Internet of Things Security" discloses a security system that enables Internet of Things (IoT) devices to securely communicate with each other over a network without human intervention, providing an interface security device between each IoT device and the network. This interface security device may be implemented as a solid state device, a logic device or an application, and it scans each incoming message to determine its source and time. Each incoming message is only accepted when source and time of the incoming message is validated. Additionally, all interface security devices are synchronized periodically to maintain integrity of the time checks.

This portfolio would be a critical acquisition for IoT device manufacturers, security device developers, and data security software developers, as well as smart phone, PDA, laptop, tablet, PC, server and consumer electronics manufacturers.

Additional Internet-of-Things/IoT Patents

IoT (the Internet of Things) covers a wide area from what is referred to as the "Industrial Internet" or "Industry 4.0" to the "Smart City" initiative that is connecting cars, houses and wearables. IoT patents are in very strong demand, and IPOfferings represents several IoT properties. Because of the competitive nature of, and strong demand for, Internet-of-Things patents, we are keeping the assignees of these properties confidential so they will not be contacted directly by prospective buyers. Buyers will need to work through IPOfferings as the broker representative of the assignees.

* These IoT Patent Applications can be acquired as applications and prosecuted to patents, or an option can be purchased that will be fulfilled when a patent issues.

In addition to these, we are in negotiations to represent several of other Internet-of-Things patentees. For information on the IoT patent properties we represent, contact IPOfferings at patents@IPOfferings.com or 845-337-6911.

We offer patents in these technologies:
