A remote alert notification system and method is disclosed. An alert condition is detected in a multi-function peripheral (MFP) having a communications interface. An alert message indicative of the alert condition is assembled. Information associated with one or more recipients that have registered with the MFP to be notified when the alert condition is present is retrieved, and a list of recipients based on the retrieved information is assembled. The alert message is sent to a wireless mobile device associated with each recipient in the list of recipients. The alert message, which can be sent via the communications interface, can be a stored voice message or a short message service message sent to a short message service center.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
