Method and System for Placing an Electronic Device in a Do Not Disturb Mode when the Electronic Device is Not Needed

Disclosed is a method and system of placing an electronic device in a do not disturb mode when the electronic device is not needed by sensing environmental conditions .

The method and system includes predefining a trigger for placing the electronic device in the do not disturb mode when an environmental condition is satisfied . Thereafter, the method and system utilizes one or more sensors for detecting occurrence of the environmental condition associated with the trigger. Subsequently, upon detecting occurrence of the environmental condition, the method and system generates the trigger for placing the electronic device in the do not disturb mode . Consider an example wherein the electronic device is an eyeglass. A trigger can be linked with a sensor in the eyeglass for placing the eyeglass in the do not disturb mode when the sensor detects that the eyeglass has been folded inside a bedroom after a late hour such as, 10 p.m.

The method and system can also be used for changing environmental conditions subsequent to putting the electronic device in the do not disturb mode . Environmental conditions can be changed by controlling other devices located in the vicinity of the electronic device. For example, subsequent to placing the eyeglass in the do not disturb mode, the method and system can turn off one or more other devices in the bedroom, such as,...
