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.
