The mounting plate 800 has a substantially elongated shape that matches that of the device housing 702. The mounting plate 800 has a raised edge, and is configured to receive the device housing 702. When the device housing 702 is mechanically coupled to the mounting plate 800, the device housing 702 sits on or within the mounting plate 800, and the rear exterior surface of the device housing 702 is disposed substantially close to, or come into contact with a front surface of the mounting plate 800, allowing the rear exterior surface of the device housing 702 to be wrapped in the raised edge of the mounting plate 800. In some implementations, the mounting plate 800 includes a first open slot 802 and a second open slot 804 that are perpendicular to each other. For example, the first open slot 802 may be aligned with and parallel to a longitudinal edge of the elongated mounting plate 800, and the second open slot 804 may be oriented to be perpendicular with the longitudinal edge. Each of the first and second open slots 802 and 804 is configured to receive a body of a fastener e.

, input devices 414, image/video capture devices 418, location detection device 416, sensors e. g. , built in sensors 490, interfaces e. g. , communication interfaces 404, radios 440, and/or other components of the smart device 204, and for preparing and sending processed data to a device for review e. g. , to activate or deactivate the security system when occupants go and come. In some implementations, the smart doorbell 106 includes some or all of the components and features of the camera 118. In some implementations, the smart doorbell 106 includes a camera 118, and therefore, is also called “doorbell camera 106” in this application. The smart alarm system 122 may detect the presence of an individual within close proximity e. g.

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. Although crime rates have been steadily dropping, the illusion that they are on the rise is presented daily by news outlets, focusing on isolated crimes, as well as the makers of security devices. The short term result of this is obviously profits for the companies making such devices. The long term results are a bit more troublesome upon consideration. ‘Mean World Syndrome’ as it is called instigates not only conscious reactions to perceived threats but also subconscious reactions which unfortunately not only influence how people view their neighbors and other community members but also can be passed on to new generations, genetically and environmentally, irrationally giving them someone to hate and direct their fears at. Though born of illusion, these attitudes can lead to real world consequences as people respond to events either through an emotional amplification born of fear, thus over reacting sometimes violently, or by completely disconnecting, unable to act appropriately when another human is violently attacked in their presence.
