In some implementations, the smart device 204 e. g. , any smart device of a smart home environment 100, FIG. 1 includes one or more processing units e. g. , CPUs, ASICs, FPGAs, microprocessors, and the like 402, one or more communication interfaces 404, memory 406, communications module 442 with radios 440, and one or more communication buses 408 for interconnecting these components sometimes called a chipset. In some implementations, the user interface 410 includes one or more output devices 412 that enable presentation of media content, including one or more speakers and/or one or more visual displays e. g. , a light ring formed on a periphery of a front cover plate, a button or a camera lens opening of a doorbell camera. In some implementations, the user interface 410 also includes one or more input devices 414, including user interface components that facilitate user input such as a keyboard, a mouse, a voice command input unit or microphone, a touch screen display, a touch sensitive input pad, a gesture capturing camera, a doorbell button or other input buttons or controls.

Each of these smart devices optionally communicates with the hub device 180 using one or more radio communication networks available at least in the smart home environment 100 e. g. , ZigBee, Z Wave, Insteon, Bluetooth, Wi Fi and other radio communication networks. In some implementations, the hub device 180 and devices coupled with/to the hub device can be controlled and/or interacted with via an application running on a smart phone, household controller, laptop, tablet computer, game console or similar electronic device. In some implementations, a user of such controller application can view status of the hub device or coupled smart devices, configure the hub device to interoperate with smart devices newly introduced to the home network, commission new smart devices, and adjust or view settings of connected smart devices, etc. In some implementations the hub device extends capabilities of low capability smart device to match capabilities of the highly capable smart devices of the same type, integrates functionality of multiple different device types—even across different communication protocols, and is configured to streamline adding of new devices and commissioning of the hub device.
