Alarm.com (6:22-cv-01165) is the latest defendant to be sued in the litigation campaign that inventor-controlled Richman Technology Corporation launched in August 2019 with a suit against Skylink Technologies. In the new complaint, the plaintiff asserts a single patent generally related to a security system that uses a “checkpoint system” to analyze sensor data and alert users of an ongoing event. Alarm.com is accused of infringement through the provision of its Smart Home Solutions platform, with certain notification alert tools at issue.
This past week, Richman Technology Corporation filed suit against Alphabet (Google) (6:20-cv-00769) and Samsung (6:20-cv-00770) after hitting ADT (1:20-cv-00979), Hangzhou Hik-Vision (Hikvision) (2:20-cv-07375), and Robert Bosch (6:20-cv-00758) earlier in August. The inventor-controlled plaintiff asserts against each defendant up to four patents, in overlapping sets, from five at issue across the campaign, the patents generally related to a security system that uses various sensors and devices (including cameras, radio frequency tracking devices, climate control and AC systems, elevators, and energy sensors) to detect site conditions and alert a security guard as needed. In its latest complaints, Richman targets various smart home and security systems.
