7B, in some implementations, a rear exterior surface of the device housing 702 provides an access to at least one of a plurality of wire terminals 720 and an electrical connector 722 e. g. , a Universal Serial Bus USB connector. The plurality of wire terminals 720 include a first terminal and a second terminal configured to receive a power supply line and a ground line for driving the plurality of electronic components contained within the device housing 106. Specifically, in an example, each of the power supply line and the ground line includes a respective fork terminal coupled to a corresponding wire terminal 720, and fixed thereto by tightening a screw fastener. Under some circumstances, the doorbell camera 106 is mounted on a wall or doorframe surface in place of a conventional doorbell, and the plurality of wire terminals 722 are coupled to receive the power supply line and the ground line that were applied to drive the conventional doorbell.

9. In some implementations, the front cover plate 708 includes a substantially opaque area that is distinct from the button opening 710, the microphone aperture 716 and the camera opening or transparent area 712. The microphone 1104 is optionally concealed under the substantially opaque area. Further, in some implementations, an array of IR illuminators 1105 are disposed under the substantially opaque area of the front cover plate 708 and configured to illuminate a field of view of the lens assembly 704 with infrared light in a night mode. In an example, the array of IR illuminators 1105 include a number of e. g. , accelerometer and gyroscope. The user interface 610 includes one or more output devices 612 that enable presentation of media content, including one or more speakers and/or one or more visual displays. The user interface 610 also includes one or more input devices 614, 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, or other input buttons or controls. Furthermore, some the client devices use a microphone and voice recognition or a camera and gesture recognition to supplement or replace the keyboard. In some implementations, the client device includes one or more cameras, scanners, or photo sensor units for capturing images not shown.

For example, in some implementations, the light ring is configured to be visible in a range of positions that include at least areas of the environment that fall within the camera's field of view. In some implementations, the light ring has a plurality of individual lighting elements, each having associated lighting characteristics that are individually controllable to reflect local camera status and/or a camera processing state/operation. In some configurations, the controllable lighting characteristics include one or more of on/off state, hue, saturation and/or brightness/intensity. In some configurations, the lighting elements are controlled individually to display an overall pattern e. g. , an entire ring or one or more portions of a ring that can be static or dynamic e.
