3.

The audio-video communication and
answering system as claimed in
claim 1, wherein the system is
further comprised of an electronic
connection to a public switching
telephone network.

Claim Text

The AlarmForce VideoRelay answering system uses a multitude of network connections including “of
an electronic connection to a public switching telephone network” (’644 Patent, Claim 3, emphasis
added). As noted below, the definition of the “public switching telephone network” includes both
communications via the Internet and digital PCs and mobile devices. Specifically, the PSTN (or Public
Switched Telephone Network) is defined as:

AlarmForce VideoRelay Answering System

“PSTN (public switched telephone network) is the world's collection of interconnected voiceoriented public telephone networks, both commercial and government-owned. It's also referred
to as the Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS). It's the aggregation of circuit-switching
telephone networks that has evolved from the days of Alexander Graham Bell ("Doctor
Watson, come here!").

Today, it is almost entirely digital in technology except for the final link from the central
(local) telephone office to the user. In relation to the Internet, the PSTN actually furnishes
much of the Internet's long-distance infrastructure. Because Internet service providers ISPs
pay the long-distance providers for access to their infrastructure and share the circuits among
many users through packet-switching, Internet users avoid having to pay usage tolls to anyone
other than their ISPs.” (http://searchnetworking.techtarget.com/definition/PSTN)

Below is an example of electronic connections for the AlarmForce VideoRelay system electronic
connections using Internet and digital networks which includes the use of the PSTN, DSL, satellite,
cable, wireless, and combination thereof.

7.

An audio-video communication and
answering system according to claim
1, wherein the system is further
comprised of an interior transceiver
having a display screen, a
microphone, a speaker, an RF
transmitter, and an RF receiver.

Claim Text

The AlarmForce VideoRelay Answering System provides an application specifically designed to
function as an intercom at a home or business, using mobile devices. In the following referenced
video, AlarmForce’s President Joel Matlin clearly states “And a VideoRelay work perfectly as a
video intercom. So when you are at home, you can see who is at your front door and talk
directly to them with-out opening your door” (YouTube video published April 20, 2012 at link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fp3Rnwdf_gU). Thus the ’644 Patent,
Claim 7 element is plainly met as follows: “wherein the system is further comprised of an interior
transceiver having a display screen, a microphone, a speaker, an RF transmitter, and an RF receiver.”
The below figures show the AlarmForce VideoRelay answering system’s mobile app being used as an
intercom “having a display screen, a microphone, a speaker, an RF transmitter, and an RF
receiver” (’644 Patent, Claim 7, emphasis added)
