For example, the communication interface is in communication with at least 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 100 data collection devices that each collects data with respect to a state of an environment of the given user, such as from an enclosure (e.g., home or office) of the user.
  • In some situations, the communication interface is in communication with a plurality of service providers. For example, the communication interface is in communication with a police station, a fire department, a plumbing company, and an insurance company.
  • The environment can be at least one building. The environment can be adjacent to at least one building. In an example, the environment is directly adjacent to the at least one building. In another example, the environment and the at least one building are separate by one or more intervening areas or structures.
  • The environment can be an enclosure in a building. The environment can be an enclosure within one or more other enclosures. For example, the environment can be a room or a room in another room. The environment can be a group of buildings on a corporate campus or a college campus or other institution.
  • In some situations, the computer processor is programmed to transform the data prior to facilitating the transmission of the data or derivative thereof to the one or more service providers. Such transformation can include transforming the data from one format to another format that may be readable by the one or more service providers. Such transformation can include applying a computer executed algorithm to the data.
  • In some situations, the item of value is money. As an alternative or in addition to, the item of value is a service value token or a promise to provide a future service or other item of value. The computer processor can be programmed to collect at least a portion, most or all of the item of value from the user, the service provider or the partner. In some examples, the computer processor can then direct at least a portion of the item of value to the user, the service provider, or the partner. For example, the computer processor can direct an item of value from a service provider to a user where a service provider is an insurance company and a user is a home owner that has decreased the insurance companies risk, in this example the item of value can be an insurance rebate. In some cases an item of value can be directed from a user to a service provider in exchange for a good or service. In some cases an item of value can be exchanged between a service provider and a partner in exchange for data.

The state can be selected from temperature, humidity, pressure, level of volatile organic compounds, level of one or more gases, level of one or more particulates, power usage, gas usage, water usage, Internet usage, break-in or forced entry detection, notification of a humidifier being empty, a notification of a de-humidifier being full, radiation levels, radon levels, motion detection, vibration signature detection, audio detection, optical detection, and presence or absence of smoke. The computer system comprises a communication interface that is in communication with (i) a plurality of data collection devices that collect data with respect to a state of an environment of each of a plurality of users, and (ii) one or more service providers that each provides a given user among the plurality of users with a service or benefit in response to said data collected by said plurality of data collection devices. The computer system further comprises a computer processor that is in communication with the communication interface and programmed to (i) collect said data from the plurality of data collection devices and (ii) facilitate the transmission of the data or derivative thereof to one or more service providers.
  • In some cases, the communication interface is in communication with a plurality of data collection devices that collect different data with respect to the state. The communication interface can be in communication with at least 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 100 data collection devices. The data collection devices can be in the same environment or different environments.
  • In some cases, the communication interface is in communication with a plurality of data collection devices that collect data with respect to a state of a respective environment of a given user among a plurality of users. For example, the communication interface is in communication with at least 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 100 data collection devices that each collects data with respect to a state of an environment of the given user, such as from an enclosure (e.g., home or office) of the user.
  • In some situations, the communication interface is in communication with a plurality of service providers. For example, the communication interface is in communication with a police station, a fire department, and an insurance company.
  • The environment can be at least one building. The environment can be adjacent to at least one building. In an example, the environment is directly adjacent to the at least one building. In another example, the environment and the at least one building are separated by one or more intervening areas or structures.
  • The environment can be an enclosure in a building. The environment can be an enclosure within one or more other enclosures. For example, the environment can be a room or a room in another room.
  • In some situations, the computer processor is programmed to transform the data prior to facilitating the transmission of the data or derivative thereof to the one or more service providers. Such transformation can include transforming the data from one format to another format that may be readable by the one or more service providers. Such transformation can include applying a computer executed algorithm to the data.
  • The computer processor can be programmed to collect an item of value from a user, service provider, or a partner of the service provider in exchange for facilitating a transmission of data, or a derivative of the data to a service provider. In some situations, the item of value is money. As an alternative or in addition to, the item of value is a service value token or a promise to provide a future service or other item of value. The computer processor can be programmed to collect at least a portion and/or most of all of the item of value from the user, the service provider or the partner. In some examples, the computer processor can then direct at least a portion of the item of value to the user, the service provider, or the partner. For example, the computer processor can direct an item of value from a service provider to a user where a service provider is an insurance company and a user is a home owner that has decreased the insurance companies risk, in this example the item of value can be an insurance rebate. In some cases an item of value can be directed from a user to a service provider in exchange for a good or service. In some cases an item of value can be exchanged between a service provider and a partner in exchange for data.
  • FIG. 1 shows an example of components in a system. The system can have collectors 101. A collector can be any device installed in an environment which is capable of collecting data. A collector can be a sensor, detector, electronic device, air purifier, thermostat, control unit, or alarm system. In an example, a collector can be a smoke detector, temperature sensor, humidity sensor, pressure sensor, voltage meter, particle detector, carbon monoxide detector, gas sensor, motion sensor, audio sensor, home alarm system, night light, or computer device. In some examples, a collector can be a radiation detector, light sensor, vibration sensor, flow monitor, humidifier, de-humidifier, alarm system, lighting system, light controller, wireless or wired network router, lock, CO detector, NOx detector, air purifier, humidifier/air purifier combo, air purifier, smoke/CO detector combo, radon detector, plug-in motion and sound detector, battery-powered motion and sound detector, fan, thermostat, switch, air conditioning (AC) unit, heater, door or window opener, power strip, power outlet, light bulb, water pipe monitor, indoor water usage monitor, outdoor water usage monitor, blind, and security camera. A collector system 102 can be a plurality of collectors. The collector system can be comprised of only one type of collector (e.g. only smoke detectors) or a plurality of collector types. The collectors in the system can be in communication with each other. The collectors or collector system can be in a space, or environment 103. An environment can be an enclosure. An environment can be a commercial or residential space. An environment can be a public or private space. In an example, an enclosure can be a building or a room in a building. In another example, an environment is a residential house or office building, or a group of homes and/or office buildings. An environment can be adjacent to a building. For example, an environment can be with 1 foot, 2 feet, 3 feet, 4 feet, 5 feet, 10 feet, or 50 feet of a building. In an example, an environment can be an open space adjacent to a building. An environment can be a group of buildings. More than one space can comprise a space system 104. A space system can be a group of homogeneous environments. In an example, a space system can be a group of apartments, a group of houses, a group of rooms, a group of outdoor spaces, or a group of buildings. Alternatively, a space system can be a group of heterogeneous environments. In an example, a space system can be a campus comprising a plurality of buildings, rooms, and outdoor spaces. A user client 105 can own, manage, and/or be present in a space system. A partner 106 can design, manufacture, and/or license a collector. A cloud 107 can be a computing system in communication with any combination of at least one collector 101, collector systems 102, user client 105, partner 106, and service provider 108. A service provider 108 can be an entity that uses the data collected from one or more collectors. The service provider can provide a good or service in response to the collected data. A service provider can be a retailer, government organization, private organization, insurance company, security company, emergency response service, or non-emergency response service. Any or all of the system components shown in FIG. 1 can be configured to accept, release, or transmit an item of value, data, and services.
  • The system components described in FIG. 1 can communicate through a communication interface. The communication interface can be a component of the computer system. The communication interface can communicate with one or more data collection devices or collectors and/or one or more service providers. Additionally the communication interface can be in communication with a computer processor. The computer processor can be programmed to collect data from one or more collector devices, facilitate the transmission of the data (or data derivative) to one or more service providers. The transmission of data from the collector to the service provider can incur a fee. The computer processor can be configured to determine or calculate the necessary fee and can request an item of value from the user client or from the service provider. The computer processor can facilitate transmission of at least a portion of the item of value to a user client, service provider, and/or partner (e.g. collector device manufacturer). An item of value can be cash, credit, money, a service value token, or a promise for future service.
  • FIG. 2 shows an example diagram of connectivity in the system. The arrows showing communication between components in FIG. 2 can be bi-directional such that a first component can communicate with a second component and a second component can reciprocally communicate with a first component. Furthermore, communication can refer to a transfer of data, a transfer of an item of value or service, and/or a transfer of a physical good. At the bottom level 201, the system can have on or more collectors. The collectors can be grouped into collector systems 202. A collector system can be defined as all the collectors in a space, an entire group of a certain type of collector (e.g. all smoke detectors installed in a home), or a group of collectors configured to monitor a common phenomenon (e.g. all collectors configured to collect data about fire or burglary). One or more collector systems can be installed in a space 203. One or more spaces can comprise a space system 204. One or more user clients 205 can communicate with and manage the system at a collector, collector system, space, and/or space system level.
  • A collector can be any device configured to collect information from an environment or space. A collector can be a sensor, for example a temperature, humidity, pressure, voltage, gas, or particle sensor. A collector can be a utility meter, for example, a water meter, electricity or power meter, a gas meter, a cable meter, or internet meter. A collector can be configured to connect to an off board computer system, for example a server, controlled and managed by the manufacturer of the detector. Alternatively, the collector can be configured to connect to an off board computer system not owned, managed or controlled by the collector manufacturer. In an example, the collector can be configured to communicate with the computer system described herein 107. The collector can be configured to communicate directly with one or more other collectors of the same or different type.
  • A user client 205 can communicate with the system through an interface. The interface can be a software interface installed on an electronic device. In an example, an electronic device can be a desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet, smart phone, smart watch, or another electronic device configured to run the software interface. Communication between electronic devices (such as the collectors, the user electronic devices, service providers, and partners with the computer system through a communication interface can utilize wired, optical and/or wireless communication. For example, the wireless communication can involve communicating packets or frames that are transmitted and received by radios or other electromagnetic radiation in the electronic devices in accordance with a communication protocol, such as: Bluetooth (e.g., from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group of Kirkland, Wash.), an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.15 standard (such as ZigBee® from the ZigBee® Alliance of San Ramon, Calif.), an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11 standard, Z-Wave, a power-line communication standard, an infra-red communication standard, a universal serial bus (USB) communication standard, a near-field-communication standard or specification (from the NFC Forum of Wakefield, Mass.), another wireless ad-hoc network standard, and/or another type of wireless interface. In some embodiments, the communication protocol can be compatible with a 2nd generation or mobile telecommunication technology, a 3rd generation of mobile telecommunications technology (such as a communication protocol that complies with the International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 specifications by the International Telecommunication Union of Geneva, Switzerland), a 4th generation of mobile telecommunications technology (such as a communication protocol that complies with the International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced specification by the International Telecommunication Union of Geneva, Switzerland), and/or another cellular-telephone communication technique. For example, the communication protocol can include Long Term Evolution or LTE. In addition, the communication can occur via a wide variety of frequency bands, including frequencies associated with the so-called ‘white space’ in frequencies bands associated with analog television broadcasting.
  • A partner 206 can similarly be in communication with and manage the system at a collector, collector system, space, and/or space system level using the described communication mechanisms. A partner 206 can only have access to data from a collector that the partner designed, manufactured, and or licensed. For example, if a partner 206 manufactures a first collector and a space has a second collector and the first collector the partner can only have access to data from the first collector even if the partner 206 is in communication with the space comprising the first and second collectors. Alternatively, a partner can have access to data from a collector that is not manufactured or licensed by the partner. A partner 206 can communicate directly with a user client 205. For example a partner 206 can provide advertising materials, warranty information, available collector software or hardware upgrades, and/or recall information about a collector to a user client 205 through a user communication interface.
  • Both the user client 205 and the partner 206 can communicate with the computer system 207. The computer system can then be in communication with a service provider. The computer system 207 can be directly in communication with the system at a collector, collector system, space, and/or space system level. The computer system 207 can process or transform data from the collectors prior to providing data to a service provider. The computer system 207 can combine data from different types of collectors into a single analysis provided to a service provider. The computer system 207 can provide data from one or more space or one or more space systems to a service provider.
  • The computer system 207 can facilitate a transfer of an item of value between components in the system. The computer system 207 can be configured to collect at least a portion of an item of value from a user client 205, partner 206, and/or service provider 208. Similarly the computer system can be configured to facilitate delivery of at least a portion of an item of value to a user client, partner, and/or service provider. The item of value can be exchanged for a good, service, or data analysis. In an example, a good can be a battery for a collector, a hardware component for a collector, a software component for a collector (e.g. firmware upgrade or antivirus software), a collector, and/or a household appliance. A service can be, for example, security monitoring, air quality monitoring, weather monitoring, air quality monitoring, temperature monitoring, humidity monitoring, and/or system health monitoring (e.g. monitoring of the working state of one or more collectors). Data analysis can include raw data from one or more collectors, processed data from one or more collectors, and/or data from one or more collectors with a suggested analysis (e.g. fire detected, security break detected, or gas leak detected).
  • A user can pay a fee in the form of a subscription to the computer system. The fee can be the item of value transferred to a service provider in exchange for a good or service. The computer system can transfer only a portion of the subscription fee to the service provider in exchange for a good or service. The subscription can be a flat rate paid by a user at a predetermined periodicity, for example, the periodicity can be monthly, bi-yearly, or yearly. The flat rate subscription can cover an unlimited number of service and/or good transfers to a user. Alternatively, the subscription can be “per-event”. In the case of a “per-event” subscription a user can pay in advance for a preset number of good or service transfers.
  • In addition to transferring an item of value from a user client to a service provider, the computer system can similarly transfer and item of value from a service provider to a user client. In an example, a service provider can provide an item of value to a user client in exchange for raw data or data derivatives from one or more collectors. An item of value can be transferred to a user in exchange for collector data indicating a positive environment. An item of value can be a rebate, extended warranty, or tax deduction. In an example, a service provider can be an insurance company and the insurance company can receive data from the collectors through the computing system. In cases in which the data from the collectors indicates that the insurance companies risk has been decreased the insurance company can provide the user client with a rebate through the computer system. In a specific example, the insurance company can be a home or vehicle (e.g., car, truck or boat) insurance company. The insurance company can receive data from motion detection sensors, forced entry sensors, radiation sensors, humidity sensors (detecting moisture or leaks), smoke and CO detectors, and other sensors to detect the integrity of a home. The insurance company can provide a user with a rebate if the collector data indicates that a user is practicing secure habits like locking their doors and changing their smoke detector batteries. In another example, an insurance company can be a home insurance company. The home insurance company can receive data regarding home security from the computer system. Some home insurance companies can monitor how often burglar alarms, motion detectors, and other home monitoring sensors are engaged. Daily use of home monitoring sensors can result in an insurance rebate being issued to a user client through the computer system. In a third example, an insurance company can be an insurance company for one or more high value items, for example, artwork, antiques, wine, rare instruments, and other items that can be sensitive to light, heat, and humidity. The insurance company for one or more high value items can receive data regarding UV exposure, temperature, and/or humidity in a storage area for the one or more high value items. If the conditions indicate that the one or more high value items are being properly stored the insurance company can issue an insurance rebate to a user client through the computing system. Alternatively, in the third example, the insurance company could purchase a security service or provide additional security or storage services in lieu of a rebate or an insurance discount. An insurance company could purchase or provide services in bulk and offer them to customers and provide more savings to the insurance company.
  • The computing system can collect and distribute data from the collection devices installed in a space to one or more service providers. A user can have control over the type of data released to the service providers (e.g. data from specific collectors and/or raw data versus data derivatives). A user can opt-in to provide data from the collectors to service providers. The opt-in process can occur through a software user interface in communication with the computer system. The user can opt-in to some service providers but not others, in an example a user can opt-in to provide data from the collectors to a security monitoring company but not provide data to an insurance company.
  • FIG. 3 shows a graphical diagram outlining an overview of an example functionality of the computer system. The diagram shown in FIG. 3 shows the computer system 301 as a horseshoe shape with users 302 on one side, service providers 303 on the other side, and partners 304 in the middle. Different positions along the horizontal length of the computer system 301 represent different connectivity channels that can be achieved by the system. In a first case 305, a user can have a collector manufactured by a company that owns the computer system installed in a space or space system. The collector manufactured by the company that owns the computer system can communicate directly with the computer system 301. The computer system 301 can provide data or a derivative of the data collected by the collector manufactured by the company that owns the computer system directly to a service provider 303. In another case 306, a user can have a collector manufactured by a partner company 304 installed in a space or space system. The computer system 301 can facilitate communication of the collector with the partner company 304. The computer system can additionally facilitate communication between the partner company and one or more service providers 303. In this case 306, a collector provided by a partner company 304 can achieve the functionality of collecting data from a device and communicating data to a service provider 303 without necessarily having this functionality within the partner company 304. In another case 307, a user can have a collector manufactured by a partner company 304 installed in a space or space system. The partner company 304 can communicate with the device through connectivity to the computer system 301. The partner company 304 can receive raw data, processed data, or derivatives of data from the collector through the computer system 301. The partner company 304 can achieve additional functionality from the analytics provided by the computer system 301. Furthermore, the partner company 304 can receive data from the computer system 301 that has come from other collectors not manufactured by the partner company 304. The data from the computer system 301 that has come from other collectors not manufactured by the partner company 304 can enrich the analysis provided to the partner company 304. In an example, if the partner company manufactures a smoke detector, the computer system can provide data from a temperature sensor provided by another partner company and installed in the same space or space system as the smoke detector. The temperature data can be combined with smoke detection data to increase or decrease the probability of a detected fire. In another example, if the partner company manufactures a burglar alarm, the computer system can provide data from a lock sensor (e.g. device that detects lock picking or vibrations) provided by another partner company and installed in the same space or space system as the burglar alarm. The lock sensor data can be combined with burglar alarm data (typically motion detection) to increase or decrease the probability of a detected space intrusion. In another case 308, a partner company 304 can communicate with collectors installed in a space or space system through their own computer system. In an example, a partner company 304 can be a company that provides a cloud connected monitoring device or collector in which the collector is in communication with a computer system that is owned or managed by the partner company 304. In this case 308, a partner company can utilize a connection to the computer system 301 to connect with service providers 303. Connecting to the computer system 301 by the partner company 304 in order to communicate with service providers 303 can be advantageous over the partner company 304 connecting to the service providers 303 directly or through a computer system owned or managed by the partner company 304 (as shown in case 309). An advantage of a partner company 304 utilizing a connection to the computer system 301 to connect with service providers 303 can be reduced overhead costs. Another advantage can be that the computer system 301 can provide the service provider 303 with data from the partner company 304 collector and also data from other collectors not provided by the partner company 304 resulting in richer data analysis.
  • The computer system can provide permeability of information between partner companies. FIG. 4 shows a diagram of an example of permeability options between partner companies. At the base of the diagram are the collectors 401 which can comprise individual collectors and/or collector systems present in a space or space system. The next level of the diagram 402 can represent the computer system. Conceptually, the computer system can be broken up in to a first platform 403 and second platform 404. The first platform 403 can collect and/or store data from collectors. The first platform 403 can be an interface for users to manage collector devices and data transfer as well as collection of or payment of items of value. The first platform 403 can also be an interface for partners for data collection, configuration, and payment collection and transfers. The second platform 404 can be an interface for service providers 405. Service providers 405 can receive orders and notifications to provide products (e.g. goods and/or services) through the second platform 404. The services providers can also transfer and receive payments through the second platform 404. The second platform 404 can also include fraud detection and payment analytics to detect fraudulent payments and fraudulent data reporting that can occur in the system. The second platform 404 can use known and collected data and data acquired or imported from other sources and data analysis to detect potential fraud. Partner companies can utilize a combination of the first platform 403 and the second platform 404.
  • The first platform 403 can include optional data permeability. The data permeability can occur between partners that are using the computer system 402 to collect and analyze collector data and/or partners that have their own outside computer system 406 that is owned and managed by the partner company. Data permeability can be defined by a partnership agreement between one or more partner companies and/or a partner company and the computer system 402 company. Data permeability can be further influenced by user preferences or settings. Permeability can be bi-directional meaning that a first partner can share data with a second partner and a second partner can reciprocally share data with the first company. In some cases, the permeability can be unidirectional. The computer system 402 company can manufacture collectors configured to communicate directly with the computer system 402. The data captured by the collectors manufactured by the computer system can have complete bi-directional permeability to be shared with one or more partner companies as depicted by boundary 406 in FIG. 4. In some cases, a partner can choose to have not data permeability, for example partner company 407. In this case, partner company 407 can communicate with the computer system 402 to achieve the functionality of data analytics and/or connection to a service provider through the computer system 402. Partner company 407 cannot achieve a functionality of having access to data from other partner companies. In a third example a partner company 408, can have unidirectional permeability. In this case, the partner company 408 can accept data from other partner companies but the partner company 408 may not choose to release a fraction of or all of the data collected by the devices manufactured by partner company 408.
  • The computer system can facilitate collection and transfer of data between a collection device and a service provider. The computer system can have a communication interface. The communication interface can be accessible to any combination of users, collectors, service providers, and partners. The communication interface can collect data from one or more collectors. The data can be pertinent to the state of an environment, where the state of the environment can be the temperature, humidity, pressure, level of volatile organic compounds, level of one or more gases, level of one or more particulates, power usage, water usage, internet usage, and presence or absence of smoke. The collector, or data collection device, can be associated with a manufacturer of the collector. The manufacturer, or partner, can access the data from the collector through the communication interface. The computer system can facilitate transmission of the data or a derivative of the data to one or more service providers, the data or derivative can be provided directly to one or more service providers. Alternatively, the data or derivative of the data can be transmitted to one or more service providers through a third party. The third party can be a partner of the service provider. A derivative of the data can be processed raw data from a single collector or a compilation of data from more than one collector. The computer system can have one or more processors in communication with the communication interface. The processor can calculate an item of value in exchange for facilitating the transmission of the data or data derivative. The computer system can facilitate the transmission of at least a portion of the item of value to one or more of the partner (manufacturer), user, service provider, or a partner of the service provider. A remaining portion of the item of value can be collected by the computer system or the company owning or managing the computer system.
  • The calculation of the item of value can include both the amount of value and the direction of transmission. In some cases the data can indicate that a payment of a user is required in exchange for a good or service from the service provider. In another case, the data can indicate that a rebate or extended warranty should be transferred from the service provider to the user. In a third case an item of value can be provided in exchange for data. Data can be the data collected by the computer system in which case a partner or service provider can provide an item of value to the computer system. In another case, data can be provided from the partner or service provider to the computer system; therefore an item of value can be transferred from the computer system to the partner or service provider.
  • FIG. 5 shows an example of a detailed view of an example communication network that can occur in the system. FIG. 5 has a plurality of collectors 501 in use in spaces 502 in a space system 503. The spaces 502 can be for example a long hallway and a bedroom, alternatively the spaces can be other indoor or outdoor spaces. The space system 503 can be a house or alternatively, the space system can be another group of spaces. A user 504 in the case shown in FIG. 5 can be a homeowner or a group of homeowners. The user 504 can connect to the computer system 506. Through a connection with a computer system 506 a user can pay for a monitoring service by providing an item of value to the computer system 506. The monitoring service can be a service which uses data from one or more collectors to monitor a space. In an example, a monitoring service can be analysis from a set of collectors configured to monitor home security events such as break-ins or occurrence of a hazard (e.g. fire or unsafe air quality conditions). The computer system 506 can be in communication with one or more collectors 501 or collector systems. The computer system can receive, store, and/or process the data communicated by the one or more collectors and determine if a detection event needs to be communicated throughout the system. A detection event can be a report of the health of one or more collectors or a detection of a need for a service or good from a service partner. In an example, a service partner can be a security service such as a private security service or a government/publicly operated police or fire department 511. The computer system can send a request to a service provider as a response to a detection event. In some cases the request can be to a physical or online retailer 507 for a component needed for a collector, for example, a battery, part, or software upgrade for a collector. In an example, a computer system can detect that a collector has a low battery and may automatically order a new battery. The computer system can be configured to provide an item of value in exchange for the component for the collector. The computer system can provide an item of value using stored credit, debit, or bank account information. Alternatively, the computer system can provide an item of value from a pre-paid account provided by the user. The retailer 507 can receive an order for the component and payment from the computer system and may send the component to the user's space or space system 503. Alternatively, if the space system is owned by an outside entity that is not a person living in the space system, for example a landlord or property management company, the component can be sent to the outside entity 510.
  • The computer system 506 can provide incentives to users to install collectors configured to communicate with the computer system. The incentive can be a monthly rebate, a per-use rebate, or an initial discount on the collectors or a discount on the installation of the collectors. Similarly, the computer system can provide incentives for partners 508 to manufacture collectors that are configured to communicate with the computer system 506. In some cases, the computer system 506 can provide an item of value to the partner for each collector they manufacture. Additionally or instead of providing an item of value for each manufactured collector, the computer system 506 can provide an item of value to a partner 508 in exchange for data from the partner's collector. A partner can also be incentivized to manufacture a collector configured to communicate with the computer system because communicating with the computer system can include additional data that the collector may not be configured to collect itself. In an example, a smoke detector manufacturer can offer a smoke detector configured to communicate with the computer system 506. The smoke detector may not be configured to measure ambient temperature; however, another collector installed in a space and in communication with the computer system 506 may measure temperature. The collector configured to measure ambient temperature may or may not be manufactured by the smoke detector manufacturer. Through the connection with the computer system 506 the smoke detector may have access to the temperature data to better detect fire events. Additionally, the computer system 506 can allow a partner 508 to indirectly provide connection to a monitoring and/or response service. A collector 501 in communication with the computer system 506 can provide sensor data to monitor a space 502 or space system 503. Based on the data the computer system 506 may detect an incident and contact a response service 509. In an example, a response service can be an emergency response service.
  • A user can have the option of subscribing to a subset of services through the computer system. The services can incorporate a subset of collectors and partner companies. FIG. 6 shows a diagram of an example system structure that can allow a user to subscribe to a specific service or set of services through the computer system. A user can have at least one space 601 or space system 605 comprising at least one collector 602. The collector 602 can be a single collector or a collector system. The space 601 can be a space or a space system. A computer system 603 can collect, store, manage, analyze, and transmit data from one or more collectors 602 in communication with the computer system 603. A user can provide the computer system with an item of value, for example a subscription in exchange for goods and services provided by one or more service providers 604 in response to data or alerts provided by the computer system 603. A pricing scheme can exist such that a user can opt-in to some services and opt-out of others for a rate reduction. The services can be grouped into subsets 606 such that a user can subscribe to a specific subset of the services. The subsets can be focused on a specific type of monitoring service, for example, security monitoring, health monitoring, and resource monitoring. Security monitoring can include data collection and analysis of safety hazards such as fires and burglary.
