How do you keep aircraft safe from theft? With the recent increase in aircraft thefts, it's a question that many pilots are asking themselves. Whether your aircraft is parked at a local airport or on a private airstrip, there are some simple steps you can take in protecting your aircraft from theft. Here are five tips for reducing airplane theft.
If you have an aircraft, you are well aware of the importance of keeping it safe at all times. Not only must you safeguard your aircraft, but also your equipment and fuel, which may be a significant draw for thieves.
Securing your aircraft isn't as simple as it sounds, and to prevent any similar scenario from occurring, you'll need to be aware of some common security mistakes aircraft hangar owners make.
Cold Weather Flying: A comprehensive checklist to keeping your airplane at its best during the winter. Learn how to prepare for fun winter flying.
Just because the air has turned cold, and winter is imminent doesn’t mean you need to hang up the keys to your airplane until spring. With a bit of forethought and planning, you can keep flying into the cold weather months.
To kick off our month-long HangarBot Women in Aviation series, The HangarBot Team sat down with Denise Bryan, a Fairfield County Airport Director based in South Carolina, to learn about her aviation story.
Welcome to the 2nd bi-monthly blog post in our series focused on HangarBot™ aviation products for your Smart Hangar! In this series, the team at Lynk Remote Technologies is answering the questions most frequently asked by pilots and others about our HangarBot products.
In this post, we're highlighting the LynkGuard Security Camera™, which is also one of the most asked-about and valuable HangarBot products!
What will the LynkGuard Security Camera do for me?
The LynkGuard Security Camera offers security, safety, and peace of mind! With the LynkGuard Security Camera, you can:
- Remotely and conveniently monitor what’s happening at your hangar from wherever you are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- See live, real-time views from your LynkGuard Security Camera on your smartphone using the HangarBot Mobile App.
- View and capture still camera shots.
- Get alerts on your smartphone if your camera detects motion.
- See the inside or outside of your hangar even in darkness with built-in infrared vision.
Do I need more than one camera?
While one camera is better than none, there are plenty of advantages to having more than one camera. With 2 or more cameras, you can see both the inside and outside of your hangar. Our cameras withstand the elements since all LynkGuard Security Cameras are water resistant and designed for outdoor use. And additional cameras can provide an up to 360° view of both the inside and outside of your hangar!
Are there any advantages to these cameras beside security?
Yes! LynkGuard Security Cameras can also be used to increase the safety of hangar door operation, providing better, real-time visibility of view angles that are otherwise hard to see.
Are they easy to install?
They are! Integrated into each LynkGuard Security Camera are magnetic mounts, which make it extremely easy and quick to attach the camera to virtually any interior or exterior wall of your hangar. And in addition to the easy-to-follow installation guide that comes with each camera, we have a stellar customer support team that’s ready to help if and when you need it! You can email them at email@example.com or call them at 727-900-6911.
What else do I need to operate my cameras?
The three things you'll need in order to make full use of your LynkGuard Security Cameras are a HangarBot 4G Hub™, a HangarBot service plan, and the HangarBot Mobile App™. It's the HangarBot Hub that brings cellular connectivity to your hangar. And that's what enables you to access the views from your cameras using your smartphone wherever you are!
The HangarBot Mobile App helps transform your smartphone into a key part of your remote hangar surveillance system. Simply download and install the HangarBot Mobile App from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store onto your smartphone (Android or iOS-based).
How do I get my cameras?
Ordering LynkGuard Security Cameras or any of our other products is easy through our website: www.HangarBot.com.
Will you be doing other blog posts like this on other products?
We will! Our next product-focused blog post, which will be in July, will focus on the HangarBot 4G Hub. Meanwhile, keep an eye on the HangarBot Blog. We'll be posting on other topics as well! We're happy to help keep you posted on new blog posts, product discounts, news, and more if you share your email address with us!

It was so great to finally get back to trade shows and events this month! We were at SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo in Lakeland, Florida from April 13 – 18, which had over 200,000 attendees. We really enjoyed reconnecting with existing customers and partners and meeting new ones! There we raffled off 5 of our HangarBot 4G Camera Hubs! (The lucky winners have already been notified.) And we demonstrated our HangarBot Smart Hangar System, including the HangarBot 4G Hub, HangarBot Door Controller, LynkGuard Security Camera, HangarBot Thermostat, and HangarBot Outlet.
To give you an idea of what it was like, here’s a video of our Founder and CEO, Morgan Walker, doing a brief walkthrough of the demo:
