|20100074116||System and Method of Controlling a Wireless Radio-Frequency Network Using a Gateway Device - A system and method that create, manage, and maintain a wireless network. The system and method automatically monitor the wireless network and determine an operating status of one or more devices associated with the network. If a determination is made that a device requires attention because of an operating status determined, the system communicates a notification to a designated user providing notice of the operating status. The system may create a proxy of a non-responsive device such that other devices in the network are deceived when communicating with a non-responsive device. The system may be located by a server to enable remote management of the wireless network via the Internet. The system and method enable the creation of scenes and timed events for devices associated with the network. Information tables that provide controller set-ups regarding how the controller communicates within the network may be stored. Devices associated with the network, locations of the devices associated with the network, operating states of the devices, and other information may be determined. Information and routing tables regarding the devices may be determined and communicated to the devices.||03-25-2010|
|20100042764||Programmable Multi-Function Adapter for Wireless Networks - The present invention provides a programmable multi-function adapter for a wireless network that includes a wireless communications module, a control module, a data communications interface and a programmable non-volatile memory. The data communications interface is coupled to the control module, while the programmable non-volatile memory is coupled to the control module and the wireless communications module. The programmable non-volatile memory stores information accessible by the control module and the wireless communications module.||02-18-2010|
|20100039240||Method for Wiring Devices in a Structure Using a Wireless Network - The present invention provides a method for controlling lighting fixtures over a wireless network that includes connecting a junction box to a power source, connecting a lighting fixture to the junction box, establishing a connection over a wireless network between the junction box and a controller, and controlling a function of the lighting fixture by transmitting a signal from the controller to the junction box over the wireless network.||02-18-2010|
|20080271394||Frame assembly for the opening of a structure - A frame assembly may be secured within an opening in a structure and is adapted to carry a window assembly therein. The frame assembly may include a pair of spaced vertical rails and a top rail secured to a top end of the vertical rails. A bottom rail may be secured to a bottom end of the vertical rails and the window assembly is removable without damaging the underlying structure.||11-06-2008|
|20080240643||HOOD FOR A PRESSURIZED BEARING ASSEMBLY - A hood for a bearing assembly isolates lubricants or gases expelled from the bearing assembly. The hood may include lower, middle, and upper portions that substantially form a funnel. The hood covers at least a portion of a bearing seal of the bearing assembly and extends from the bearing assembly and out of a galvanizing bath. The hood may be formed from one or more sheets of material. Mounting brackets are provided to secure the hood to the bearing.||10-02-2008|
