CLAIMS:

1. A system, comprising:

a server;

a wireless access point disposed in signal communication with the server;

an end device; and

a wireless end point communicative with the wireless access point and configured to interface with the end device,

the server and the end device being configured to send information packets back and forth via the wireless end point, each information packet including:

additional information instructing the wireless end point to take subsequent action following initial action by the wireless end point relative to the information packet.

2. The system according to claim 1, wherein the wireless access point is disposed in signal communication with the server via a TCP/IP based network.

3. The system according to claim 1, wherein the wireless end point communicates with the corresponding wireless access point via a secured wireless connection.

4. The system according to claim 1, wherein the end device comprises a lock, a security detector, a fire detector, a heat detector, a smoke detector/alarm and/or a carbon monoxide detector.

5. The system according to claim 1, wherein the end device is plural in number and the plural end devices, the wireless end point and the wireless access point are disposed within a cluster remote from the server.

6. The system according to claim 5, wherein the cluster is plural in number.

7. The system according to claim 1, wherein the initial action comprises one of transmitting the information packet and receiving the information packet.

8. The system according to claim 7, wherein the subsequent action comprises the wireless end point staying awake and going to sleep.

9. The system according to claim 1, wherein the additional information is readable by the wireless end point independent of a readability of information packet content by the wireless end point.

10. The system according to claim 1, wherein the additional information comprises a response pending indication to instruct the wireless end point to stay awake pending a response.

11. The system according to claim 1, wherein the additional information comprises a request pending indication to instruct the wireless end point to stay awake pending a request.

12. A method of operating an end device, which is disposed in a system whereby the end device and a server send information packets back and forth via a wireless end point and a wireless access point, the method comprising:

preparing an information packet to be sent to the server; and

embedding in the information packet an instruction that the wireless end point is to take subsequent action following initial action by the wireless end point relative to the information packet.

13. The method according to claim 12, wherein the initial action comprises one of transmitting the information packet and receiving the information packet.

14. The system according to claim 12, wherein the subsequent action comprises the wireless end point staying awake and going to sleep.

15. The method according to claim 12, wherein the instruction is readable by the wireless end point independent of a readability of information packet content by the wireless end point.

16. The method according to claim 12, wherein the embedding comprises:

determining whether a response to the information packet is expected; and

in an event that no response is expected, embedding within the information packet an indication that no response is pending, or,

in an event that the response is expected, embedding within the information packet an indication that the response is pending.

17. The method according to claim 12, wherein the embedding comprises:

determining whether a queue size is greater than 1 ; and

in an event that the queue size is not greater than 1 , embedding within the information packet an indication that no request is pending, or,

in an event that the queue size is greater than 1, embedding within the information packet an indication that a request is pending.

18. A method of operating a wireless end point, which is disposed in a system whereby an end device and a server send information packets back and forth via the wireless end point and a wireless access point, the method comprising:

receiving an information packet, including information packet content and additional information;

reading an instruction in the additional information independent of a readability of information packet content; and

taking an initial action with respect to the information packet and taking a subsequent action in accordance with the instruction.

19. The method according to claim 18, wherein the initial action comprises one of transmitting the information packet and receiving the information packet.

20. The system according to claim 18, wherein the subsequent action comprises the wireless end point staying awake and going to sleep.
