Referring to FIG. 10C, in some implementations, the doorbell camera 106 includes a voltage monitoring unit 1022 configured to generate the supply monitoring signal based on the input AC voltage. The LED indicator of the doorbell camera 106 is configured to, based on a value of the supply monitoring signal, display on a surface of the device housing 702 one of a set of predetermined visual patterns, thereby sending a visual message to a user of the doorbell camera 106 to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. For example, the supply threshold may be 8V. When the input AC voltage is greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a green color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is sufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106. In contrast, when the input AC voltage is not greater than 8V, the supply monitoring signal may control the LED indicator to display a red color along the peripheral edge 1040 of the doorbell button 1002, indicating that the input AC voltage is insufficient to drive the doorbell camera 106.

Local law enforcement provides the public with cheap or free doorbell cameras and swings by for the footage whenever needed. Who isn't going to feel obligated to hand this over to the cops when they come asking?As the EFF's Dave Maass points out, if cops wanted to outfit a ton of homes with surveillance cameras they could access at any time, there would be some pushback. But frame it as a giveaway with an eye on home security, and people will gladly sign up to turn Everytown, USA into London. Both Amazon and law enforcement make it clear no one is obligated to turn their front doors into tools of the surveillance state. Amazon's end user agreement does not require users hand over footage to officers. But put a few officers on a customer's doorstep and the calculus of consent changes.
