WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A method of operating a lockset including an electronic component and a controller for the electronic component, the method comprising:

providing a usage score to each block of a plurality of blocks, wherein each iteration of a recurring period of time comprises the plurality of blocks;

by the controller and for each block, adjusting the usage score based on usage of the lockset during the block in a first iteration of the recurring period of time;

by the controller and for each block, selecting a block-specific schedule for the electronic component based on the usage score for the block, the selecting comprising:

selecting the block-specific schedule as a higher-power schedule for each block for which the usage score satisfies a first criterion; and

selecting the block-specific schedule as a lower-power schedule for each block for which the usage score satisfies a second criterion different from the first criterion; and

by the controller and during a second iteration of the recurring period of time subsequent to the first iteration of the recurring period of time, operating the electronic component during each block according to the block-specific schedule for the block.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein operating the electronic component according to the lower-power schedule comprises deactivating the electronic component.

3. The method of claim 1 or claim 2, wherein the electronic component comprises a wireless transceiver;

wherein operating the electronic component according to the higher-power schedule comprises transmitting advertisements at a first rate; and

wherein operating the electronic component according to the lower-power schedule comprises transmitting advertisements at a second rate that is less than the first rate.

4. The method of any of the preceding claims, wherein operating the electronic component according to the higher-power schedule comprises operating the electronic component at a first duty cycle; and

wherein operating the electronic component according to the lower-power schedule

comprises operating the electronic component at a second duty cycle that is less than the first duty cycle.

5. The method of any of the preceding claims, wherein the selecting further comprises selecting the block-specific schedule as a no-power schedule for each block for which the usage score satisfies a third criterion different from the first criterion and the second criterion.

6. The method of any of the preceding claims, wherein adjusting the usage score for each block based on usage of the lockset during the block comprises decreasing the usage score of each block in which the lockset is not used;

wherein the usage score satisfies the first criterion when the usage score exceeds a predetermined threshold; and

wherein the usage score satisfies the second criterion when the usage score falls below the predetermined threshold.

7. The method of any of the preceding claims, wherein the recurring period of time has a duration of one week.

8. The method of any of the preceding claims, wherein each block has a duration of one hour or less.

9. The method of any of the preceding claims, further comprising, by the controller, adjusting the usage score for each block based on usage of the lockset during the block in the second iteration of the recurring period of time.

10. A method of operating a lockset including an electronic component, the method comprising:

providing a usage score to each block of a plurality of blocks, wherein each iteration of a recurring period of time comprises a corresponding iteration of each block;

adjusting the usage score of each block based on usage of the lockset during the block, wherein adjusting the usage score comprises reducing the usage score of each block in which there is no usage of the lockset;

selecting a schedule for each block based on the usage score of the block, the selecting comprising:

selecting a higher-power schedule for each block for which the usage score exceeds a predetermined usage score threshold; and

selecting a lower-power schedule for each block for which the usage score falls below the predetermined usage score threshold; and

operating the electronic component during each block according to the schedule selected for the block.

11. The method of claim 10, wherein the adjusting is performed during a first iteration of the recurring period of time; and

wherein the operating is performed during a second iteration of the recurring period of time subsequent to the first iteration of the recurring period of time.

12. The method of claim 11, wherein the adjusting is further performed during the second iteration of the recurring period of time.

13. The method of claim 11 or claim 12, wherein the electronic component comprises a wireless transceiver.

14. The method of claim 13, further comprising performing a check-in operation comprising forming, via the wireless transceiver, a wireless communication connection with an external device; and

wherein the check-in operation is performed without regard to the schedule selected for the block during which the check-in operation occurs.

15. The method of claim 14, wherein the check-in operation is performed

periodically.

16. The method of claim 14 of claim 15, further comprising:

receiving, from the external device, an override schedule for a particular block; and operating the electronic device according to the override schedule during the particular block regardless of the schedule selected for the particular block.

17. A method of operating a lockset including a plurality of electronic components, the method comprising:

dividing a recurring period of time into a plurality of blocks such that each iteration of the period of time comprises the plurality of blocks, wherein an earlier iteration of the recurring period of time includes an earlier iteration of each block, and wherein a later iteration of the recurring period of time occurs after the earlier iteration of the recurring period of time;

generating, for each block, a plurality of component-specific usage scores, wherein each component-specific usage score corresponds to a respective electronic component of the plurality of electronic components such that each electronic component of the plurality of electronic components has a corresponding and respective component-specific usage score;

for each block, adjusting each component-specific usage score based on usage of the corresponding electronic component during the earlier iteration of the block, thereby providing each electronic component with an adjusted component-specific usage score for each block; for each electronic component, selecting a block-specific schedule for each block based on the component-specific usage score for the electronic component during the block, the selecting comprising:

selecting the block-specific schedule as a higher-power schedule for each block for which the component-specific usage score of the electronic component satisfies a first criterion; and

selecting the block-specific schedule as a lower-power schedule for each block for which the component-specific usage score of the electronic component satisfies a second criterion; and

during the later iteration of the recurring period of time, operating each electronic component during each block according to the block-specific schedule selected for the electronic component and the block.

18. The method of claim 17, wherein the adjusting comprises:

generating, for each block, a plurality of component-specific usage parameters, wherein each component-specific usage parameter pertains to usage of a corresponding one of the electronic components during the earlier iteration of the block; and

generating, for each electronic component and in each block, the adjusted component-specific usage score based on the component-specific usage score and the component-specific usage parameter.

19. The method of claim 17 or claim 18, wherein the adjusted component-specific usage score for each block is lower than the component-specific usage score for the block when there is no usage of the corresponding electronic component during the earlier iteration of the block;

wherein the adjusted component-specific usage score satisfies the first criterion when the adjusted component-specific usage score exceeds a threshold value; and

wherein the adjusted component-specific usage score satisfies the second criterion when the adjusted component-specific usage score falls below the threshold value.

20. The method any of claims 17-19, wherein one or more of the electronic components comprises at least one of a wireless transceiver, a camera, and a sensor.
