In some implementations, each of the video sources 222 includes a controller device not shown that serves as an intermediary between the one or more cameras and the server system 164. The controller device receives the video data from the one or more cameras, optionally performs some preliminary processing on the video data, and sends the video data to the server system 164 on behalf of the one or more cameras substantially in real time. In some implementations, each camera has its own on board processing capabilities to perform some preliminary processing on the captured video data before sending the processed video data along with metadata obtained through the preliminary processing to the controller device and/or the server system 164. In accordance with some implementations, each of the client devices 220 includes a client side module. The client side module communicates with a server side module executed on the server system 164 through the one or more networks 162. The client side module provides client side functionality for the event monitoring and review processing and communications with the server side module. The server side module provides server side functionality for event monitoring and review processing for any number of client side modules each residing on a respective client device 220. The server side module also provides server side functionality for video processing and camera control for any number of the video sources 222, including any number of control devices and the cameras. In some implementations, the server system 164 includes one or more processors 212, a video storage database 210, an account database 214, an I/O interface to one or more client devices 216, and an I/O interface to one or more video sources 218. The I/O interface to one or more clients 216 facilitates the client facing input and output processing.

Most of these tools such as smart lights and remote locks operate on a Wi Fi connection so they won't function if the power is out. Sure, you could, but it wouldn't have all the features of a robust home security system. The majority of Wi Fi security cameras which are so popular today don't have a way to contact a monitoring service if there is a break in. The camera can detect motion and send you push notifications on your phone, but it's then left to you to contact local authorities. If your house is being burglarized and you're not near your phone or it's turned off, you're out of luck. This is why a security camera can be a great addition to a home security system but it can never really take the place of a full fledged home security system.

Fear of loss of comfort and protection is one of those conditions hard wired into us as a species. ‘Mine’ draws a line in the sand between the perceived inner world and the outer world. From this stems a need to control not only the apparent controllables, but also random happenings and any other events which may lead to loss; risk management at a very personal level. Even though Doorbell Cameras are considered a realistic way to curtail crime, the owners and installers of these devices often violate ethical considerations, both at a personal level and at a social level. Reasonable expectation of privacy is a topic we all assume to be for our own benefit and as a deterrent to crime. Yet without notifying those being filmed or photographed, we may be breaking laws. In most states it is only legal to film one’s own front door. If a neighbor’s home, particularly the inside of said home, is in the video the owner of the camera could be breaking the law due to the cone of visibility. They must procure the neighbor’s consent to be filmed. Yet, such considerations are rarely valued when doorbell cameras are installed and used. The fear of personal loss trumps others’ reasonable expectation of privacy.
