Claim of US Patent No. 9,300,776

1. A network for detecting potentially damaging motion, comprising:
a device having a device processor operating in accord with application software, a device data port, and an accelerometer
operatively connected to the device processor;

a central server having a server data port and a server processor operating in accord with server software; and
a data link from the device to the central server;
wherein the application software causes the device processor to obtain accelerometer motion information from the accelerometer;
wherein the device processor determines if the accelerometer motion information exceeds a threshold programmed by the application
software, the threshold for determining whether potentially damaging motion may have occurred;

wherein the device processes and sends accelerometer motion information from the device data port to the server data port
over the data link when the accelerometer motion information exceeds the programmed threshold; and

wherein the central server processes the accelerometer motion information;
wherein it is determined in accord with application software that at least one application is active and co-running with the
application software at an instance when the accelerometer motion information exceeds the predetermined threshold; and

wherein an indication is provided to the user of the at least one application which was active and co-running with the application
software at the instance when the accelerometer motion information exceeded the predetermined threshold.
