Why am I advised not to press the power key or home key?


#1

Most manufacturers have no idea their devices might one day become security cameras. They think that since you press the power key, you are putting your phone to sleep mode or standby mode. Either way, you are not using the phone at that moment, so the phone tries to save some battery by shutting down the cameras and reducing WiFi reception.

In other words, pressing the power key may put your Camera Unit to sleep and it won’t be able to provide security anymore, so don’t!

What about the home key? If you press the home key, you exit the app. Alfred doesn’t work in the background. By exiting the app, Alfred cannot stay connected and receive commands from the Viewer device.

Alfred dims the display in a minute after your setup is complete as an attempt to save power, so there is no need to press the power key or home key.

¿Por qué me aconsejan no presionar la tecla de encendido o la tecla de inicio?

La mayoría de los fabricantes no tienen ni idea de que sus dispositivos podrían convertirse un día en cámaras de seguridad. Piensan que desde que pulsa la tecla de encendido, pone su teléfono en modo de suspensión o modo de espera. De cualquier manera, no usa el teléfono en ese momento, por lo que el teléfono trata de ahorrar algo de batería apagando las cámaras y reduciendo la recepción Wi-Fi.

En otras palabras, al pulsar la tecla de encendido puede “mandar a dormir” a su teléfono con cámara y ya no podrá proporcionar seguridad, ¡así que no lo haga!

¿Qué pasa con la tecla de inicio? Si pulsa la tecla de inicio, sale de la aplicación. Alfred no funciona en segundo plano. Al salir de la aplicación, Alfred no puede permanecer conectado y recibir comandos desde el dispositivo reproductor.

Alfred atenúa la pantalla en un minuto después de que su configuración se haya completado en un intento de ahorrar energía, así que no tiene que presionar la tecla de encendido o la tecla de inicio.

Warum wird mir empfohlen, die Einschalt- oder Home-Taste nicht zu drücken?

Die meisten Hersteller wissen nicht, dass ihre Geräte eines Tages Sicherheitskameras werden könnten. Sie denken, dass Sie Ihr Handy in den Schlaf- oder Standby-Modus versetzen, da Sie die Einschalttaste drücken. So oder so, Sie verwenden das Handy im Moment nicht, das Handy versucht also, etwas Strom zu sparen, indem es die Kamera schließt und den WLAN-Empfang reduziert.

Mit anderen Worten, durch das Drücken der Einschalttaste könnte Ihr Kamerahandy in den Schlafmodus versetzt werden und dadurch nicht mehr in der Lage sein, Sicherheit zu bieten. Also tun Sie es nicht!

Wie sieht es mit der Home-Taste aus? Wenn Sie die Home-Taste drücken, beenden Sie die App. Alfred funktioniert nicht im Hintergrund. Dadurch, dass Sie die App beenden, kann Alfred nicht verbunden bleiben und Befehle vom Anzeigegerät empfangen.

Alfred schaltet den Bildschirm eine Minute nach Abschluss Ihres Setups aus, um zu versuchen, Strom zu sparen. Es ist also nicht nötig, die Einschalt- oder Home-Taste zu drücken.

為甚麼相機端成功連線後不應該按下電源鍵或是Home鍵呢?

製造商無法預料他們生產的智慧型手機有朝一日會成為監控攝影機,所以按下電源鍵手機就會進入睡眠狀態或是待機模式。手機為了省電,會關閉相機以及減低WiFi 接收。

也就是說,按下電源鍵可能讓相機端進入睡眠模式,無法監控。為了保障居家安全。記得不要按電源鍵喔!

按下Home鍵則是會退出阿福管家,但是阿福管家無法在背景運作。退出之後,阿福管家無法保持連線,也無法從監控端接收指令。

相機端架設完成後,阿福管家會將螢幕調暗,節省電力。請不要按下電源鍵或是Home鍵喔!

なぜパワーキーやホームキーを押さないように勧められているのですか?

自社のデバイスを防犯カメラにできる日が来ることに気づかない製造会社が多いのです。パワーキーを押すと、携帯電話がスリープモードかスタンバイモードになると思っているのです。どちらのモードでも、その間電話は使用されていないので、カメラ機能を停止たり、WiFi受信機能を低減して、バッテリーを節約しようとします。

言い換えると、パワーキーを押すと、あなたのカメラ付き携帯電話はスリープモードになり、その時点でセキュリティ機能が作動しなくなりますので、ご注意ください!

ホームキーはどうでしょう。ホームキーを押すとアプリが終了します。Alfredはバックグラウンドで作動しません。アプリを終了することにより、Alfredは切断され、ビューアーデバイスからのコマンドを受信することができなくなります。

Alfredは、電力を節約するため、設定が完了してから1分後にディスプレイが暗くなるようになっていますので、パワーキーやホームキーを押す必要はありません。

Por que sou aconselhado a não pressionar o botão de energia ou início?

A maioria dos fabricantes não faz ideia de que seus dispositivos podem algum dia vir a se tornar câmeras de segurança. Eles pensam que uma vez que pressionar o botão de energia, você está colocando seu celular em modo de suspensão ou espera. De qualquer forma, você não está usando o celular naquele momento, então ele tenta economizar um pouco de bateria ao desligar as câmeras e reduzir a recepção do Wi-Fi.

Em outras palavras, pressionar o botão de energia pode colocar a Câmera do seu Celular em suspensão e ela já não vai poder fornecer segurança, então não faça isso!

E quanto ao botão de início? Se pressionar o botão de início, você sai do aplicativo. O Alfred não funciona em segundo plano. Ao sair do aplicativo, o Alfred não pode permanecer conectado e receber comandos do dispositivo do Espectador.

O Alfred escurece a tela um minuto após a instalação estar completa como uma tentativa de economizar bateria, por isso não há necessidade de pressionar o botão de energia ou início.

전원 키나 홈 키를 왜 누리지 말라고 하나요?

제조사 대부분이 자신이 만든 디바이스가 보안 카메라로 활용되리라 생각하지 않습니다. 때문에 사용자가 파워 키를 누르면 수면모드나 대기 모드로 전환하려 한다고 간주합니다. 양쪽 모두 사용자가 전화기를 사용하지 않는 경우이기 때문에, 전화기는 배터리 소모를 줄이거나 WiFi사용을 줄이기 위해 카메라를 끄게 됩니다.

달리 말하면, 파워 키를 누르면 카메라 폰을 수면 상태로 만들어 보안 기능을 하지 않게 됩니다. 파워 키를 누르지 마세요
홈 키의 경우라면? 홈 키를 누르면 앱에서 빠져나가게 됩니다. 알프레드는 배경환경에서 작동하지 않습니다. 앱에서 빠져나가면, 알프레드는 뷰어 장치로부터 연결이 해제되고 명령을 받을 수 없습니다.

알프레드는 사용자의 설정이 완료되면 1분 후 화면을 어둡게 만들어서 전원을 절약합니다. 때문에 파워 키나 홈 키를 누를 필요가 없습니다.

Почему не рекомендуется нажимать кнопки питания и возврата?

Большинство производителей не подозревали, что их устройства однажды могут послужить камерами наблюдения. По их задумке, если вы нажали кнопку питания, значит перевели телефон в спящий режим или режим ожидания. В любом случае вы в это время телефоном не пользуетесь, и в целях экономии энергии он выключает камеры и ограничивает Wi-Fi.

Другими словами, нажатие кнопки питания может отправить ваш камерофон в режим сна, и он больше не сможет обеспечивать защиту. Так что не стоит!

Что касается кнопки возврата, ее нажатие приведет к закрытию приложения. Alfred не работает в фоновом режиме. После закрытия приложения Alfred у него не будет доступа к интернету, им нельзя будет управлять с устройства-монитора.

В целях экономии электроэнергии приложение Alfred затемняет экран через минуту после завершения установки, поэтому нет необходимости нажимать кнопки питания и возврата.
