A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11969901B2) outlines a method for monitoring conditions in or near a building using sensors and robotic sentinels. The method involves storing rules defining detectable events, monitoring sensor data, applying rules to identify matching events, and dispatching robotic sentinels to communicate with sensors and activate cameras when necessary. The rules cover various scenarios such as temperature fluctuations, motion detection, humidity levels, fire alarms, gas leaks, and more. Notifications can be sent to remote devices, and video feeds from the robotic sentinels can be transmitted over a network, providing real-time monitoring capabilities.

Additionally, the patent describes a building monitoring system that includes sensors, robotic sentinels, cameras, and controllers to detect alert conditions in a building space. The system can communicate with remote devices, apply rules to identify specific alert conditions, and activate cameras on robotic sentinels for further monitoring. Recommendations for actions to take in response to detected events are also included in the rules. The system is designed to provide a comprehensive monitoring solution for buildings, ensuring timely responses to potential risks or issues. The use of robotic sentinels, cameras, and remote communication capabilities enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of the monitoring process, allowing for proactive management of building conditions and safety.
