, the server system 164. Similarly, in some implementations, a respective one of the video sources 222 is a simple video capturing device that continuously captures and streams video data to the server system 164 with limited or no local preliminary processing on the video data. Although many aspects of the present technology are described from the perspective of the server system 164, the corresponding actions performed by a client device 220 and/or the video sources 222 would be apparent to one of skill in the art.

In some implementations, local storage device 190 temporarily stores video data from one or more cameras e. g. , camera 118 prior to transferring the video data to a server system e. g. , server system 164. In accordance with various implementations of the application, a doorbell camera 106 integrates a camera 118 in a smart doorbell device 106. The doorbell camera 106 has a doorbell button, a camera module, a processor and memory including programs executed by the processor, and is electrically coupled to a remote chime device that rings in response to a user press on the doorbell button. The doorbell camera 106 operates at a first camera mode and a second camera mode. In both of these two modes, the doorbell camera 106 continuously records video information from a field of view of the doorbell camera 106, and communicates with a remote server 164 to receive instructions from and/or upload the recorded video information to the remote server 164. More importantly, the doorbell camera 106 is configured to detect whether there is a user press on the doorbell button. In accordance with a determination that no user press is being applied on the doorbell button, the first camera mode is activated to bypass the remote chime device and couple the camera module of the doorbell camera 106 to a remote transformer for receiving a power supply therefrom.
