  • FIELD
  • The present disclosure relates to electronic devices and applications, and more particularly to systems, methods and devices configured for exchange, communication and control based on card elements.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Technologies associated with network devices, and in particular personal devices, are implemented in various forms and accessible from many sources. Conventional systems are often limited by there configurations. For example, conventional communication protocols and configurations do not allow for devices to connect. Conventional systems that do allow for connectivity are typically platform dependent and usually require profile designations or authentication for interaction. Device configuration requiring a platform specific configuration prevents interaction makes it difficult for a user to interact with other users, interact with other users' devices, or interoperate devices.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE EMBODIMENTS
  • Systems, methods and devices are disclosed for using a settings card. In one embodiment, a method for using a settings card includes displaying, by a user device, a user interface. The user interface presented includes graphical elements for one or more card elements. The user interface presented includes graphical elements for one or more space. The method further includes presenting, by the user device, a graphical element for a settings card, based on a selection of the settings card on the user interface. The method further includes detecting, by the user device, a control input, the control input being an input for the settings card. The method further includes outputting, by the user device, a control command which is based on the control input. The control command is configured to control the operation of one or more third-party devices, which are associated with the settings card.
  • In another embodiment, a device is configured to system for using a settings card includes a user interface. The system further includes a controller, configured to control the presentation of a card element for the user interface. The system further includes a communications network, linking the user device to a plurality of third-party devices. The system further includes the user device presenting a user row and a device row on a user interface. The system further includes the user device presenting a device list on the user interface, the device list representing a plurality of third-party devices. The system further includes the user device presenting a plurality of user card elements on the user row, such that the user card elements are associated with a selected third-party device, the selected third-party device being one of the plurality of third-party devices on the device list. The system further includes one of the plurality of device card elements being a device settings card. The system further includes the user device allowing a user to select the device settings card and send the device settings card to the user row. The system thus providing the user with access to the device settings card.

  • In an embodiment shown, the user has already chosen a selected third-party device 530 on the user device 505. Furthermore, the user has already moved the settings card 535 associated with the selected third-party device 530 into the user row. Therefore, the user has access to the settings card 535 through the user interface of the user device 505.
  • In one embodiment, the selected third-party device 530 is a display device 510. The user is accessing the settings card 535 associated with the display device 510. Through this access, the user can control the channel and volume on the display device 510 directly from the user device 505. In this embodiment, the settings card 535 also has limitations. Namely, that only certain functionalities of the display device 510: channel and volume, can be controlled by the user device 505.
  • In a different embodiment, the settings card 535 has access limitations, such that only certain user devices can access the settings card 535 and thus control the selected third-party device 530. As one example, a husband and wife could allow their personal user devices to have access to their display device 510 through the settings card 535 while simultaneously restricting all other user devices, such as their neighbors' user devices, from accessing their display device 510 through the settings card 535.
  • In a different embodiment, the settings card 535 has timing limitations, such that a user device 505 can only access the settings card 535 to control the selected third-party device 530 during certain days or certain times of the day. In another different embodiment, the settings card 535 has proximity limitations, such that a user device 505 can only access the settings card 535 to control the selected third-party device 530 when the user device 505 is within a predefined geophysical boundary.
  • In a different embodiment, the settings card 535 associated with the selected third-party device 530 stores a favorite's profile of pre-set, preferred, settings for the third-party device 530. In an embodiment, the settings card 535 initially shows the user the display device's 510 preferred settings: the channel set at 23 and the volume set at 14. In a related embodiment, the settings card 535 associated with the selected third-party device 530 stores a user profile, associated with the user device's 505 access to the third-party device 530, the user profile being a record of the user's preferred settings.
  • While the embodiment shown in FIG. 5 relates to a selected third-party device 530 on the user device 505, such that the user has already moved the settings card 535 associated with the selected third-party device 530 into the user row, there are alternate ways to control a third-party device on the user device 505.
  • In an alternate embodiment, the user device 505 has a settings card 535 pre-loaded onto the user device 505. The user does not have to select a third-party device and subsequently move the settings card for that third party device onto the user row. Rather, the user device 505 has saved the settings card 535 for a third-party device onto the user row. This being the case, the user can access the settings card 535 for a third-party device immediately, without having to select the third-party device from a device list, move the settings card for a particular device from the device row to the user row, and then access the settings card 535.
  • FIG. 6 depicts a settings card on the user interface, being used to control a plurality of devices. In this embodiment, the user has already chosen a selected third-party device 630 on the user device 605. Furthermore, the user has already moved the settings card 635 associated with the selected third-party device 630 into the user row. Therefore, the user has access to the settings card 635 through the user interface of the user device 605.
  • In an embodiment, the selected third-party device 630 is a linked network which is made up of a plurality of linked devices: 610 1, 610 2, and 610 3, in separate locations. The user is accessing the settings card 635 associated with the plurality of linked devices 610 1, 610 2, and 610 3. Because multiple devices are associated with a single selected third-party device 630, and thus a single settings card 635, the multiple device can be controlled simultaneously, through a single settings card 635 accessed by a single user device 605. Through this access, the user can control all of the plurality of linked devices 610 1, 610 2, and 610 3 directly from the user device 605. In this embodiment, the plurality of linked devices 610 1, 610 2, and 610 3 associated with the settings card 635 are not directly linked with the user device 605. Rather, the user device 605 and the plurality of linked devices 610 1, 610 2, and 610 3 are linked through a communication network 615. This communication network 615 can be a local network or a more global network, such as the Internet.
