LA Startup Lauches an Aviation Security and Automation system
Technology Displayed At EAA Airventure Brings The Concept Of Home Automation To Hangars
You've probably heard of smart homes ... where things can be monitored and controlled remotely through a smartphone or tablet. This week Lynk Remote Technologies is displaying its "HangarBot" solution at EAA Airventure, which brings the same concept to your hangar. This new technology provides users the ability to control, automate, and secure general aviation hangars from anywhere in the world with network connectivity, anytime.
Consisting of two main components, an easy-to-install HangarBot hub and a HangarBot mobile app, this unparalleled technology is distinctly designed for general aviation and developed with convenience and ease of use in mind.
The HangarBot hub is a wall-mounted module that offers cellular network connectivity and is packed with sensors to monitor and control hangar temperature, video surveillance and connected devices. The hub speaks directly to the HangarBot app to control, automate and secure a hangar with the simple touch of a button. Using the easy-to-navigate app, users can execute instant actions like opening the hangar door, or schedule actions ahead of time such as, turning on the heat every weekday morning. HangarBot’s automation and custom scheduled action settings can save both time and money.
The HangarBot solution is specifically designed to work in remote locations and comes with three cost efficient cellular data plan options. The three data allowance packages offer users the flexibility and option to use HangarBot as a Wi-Fi hotspot. “We wanted to offer a practical solution with low monthly data service costs. So, we created a unique system from the ground up that minimizes message size between the server and HangarBot, and by processing the routine tasks directly on Hangarbot” says HangarBot’s inventor and President of Lynk Remote Technologies, Inc., Morgan Walker. Once a HangarBot user is registered with an account, the lowest level data plan is activated, and users can log into their account on hangarbot.com and adjust or cancel the monthly data plan at any time.
“After two years in development, we are excited to lead the aviation industry into a more modern, convenient and connected era with the debut of HangarBot at EAA Airventure. Now, owners can protect and manage the environment around the aircraft easily and with confidence - anywhere in the world.” says Walker.
