Officers can view a "heat map" that shows the general area where cameras are, but they do not see a camera's actual location. If police want a video, they must contact Ring to see if the resident is willing to share, said Jennifer Brutus, senior management analyst for the Arcadia Police Department. Arcadia launched its program at the end of 2017, and in the following year, the city saw a 25% decrease in residential burglaries, Brutus said. It's hard to quantify how much of that is directly related to Ring, but she said the devices act as a deterrent. In one case, a doorbell camera caught footage of four burglary suspects trying to enter a residence. Three were arrested at the time, but a fourth got away.

Indeed, several devices in the smart home environment 100 need not be physically within the structure 150. For example, a device controlling a pool heater 114 or irrigation system 116 may be located outside of the structure 150. It is also to be appreciated that while the terms user, customer, installer, homeowner, occupant, guest, tenant, landlord, repair person, and the like may be used to refer to the person or persons acting in the context of some particularly situations described herein, these references do not limit the scope of the present teachings with respect to the person or persons who are performing such actions. Thus, for example, the terms user, customer, purchaser, installer, subscriber, and homeowner may often refer to the same person in the case of a single family residential dwelling, because the head of the household is often the person who makes the purchasing decision, buys the unit, and installs and configures the unit, and is also one of the users of the unit. However, in other scenarios, such as a landlord tenant environment, the customer may be the landlord with respect to purchasing the unit, the installer may be a local apartment supervisor, a first user may be the tenant, and a second user may again be the landlord with respect to remote control functionality. Importantly, while the identity of the person performing the action may be germane to a particular advantage provided by one or more of the implementations, such identity should not be construed in the descriptions that follow as necessarily limiting the scope of the present teachings to those particular individuals having those particular identities. In some implementations, the integrated devices of the smart home environment 100 include intelligent, multi sensing, network connected devices that integrate seamlessly with each other in a smart home network e. g. , 202 FIG. 2A and/or with a central server or a cloud computing system to provide a variety of useful smart home functions. The smart home environment 100 may include one or more intelligent, multi sensing, network connected thermostats 102 hereinafter referred to as “smart thermostats 102”, one or more intelligent, network connected, multi sensing hazard detection units 104 hereinafter referred to as “smart hazard detectors 104”, one or more intelligent, multi sensing, network connected entryway interface devices 106 and 120 hereinafter referred to as “smart doorbells 106” and “smart door locks 120”, and one or more intelligent, multi sensing, network connected alarm systems 122 hereinafter referred to as “smart alarm systems 122”.
