OSHKOSH — Lynk Remote Technologies unveiled the HangarBot solution at AirVenture, which provides users the ability to control, automate, and secure general aviation hangars from anywhere in the world with network connectivity, anytime.
The solution consists of two main components, a HangarBot hub and a HangarBot mobile app.
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 touch of a button.
Using the app, users can execute actions like opening the hangar door, or schedule actions ahead of time such as turning on the heat every weekday morning.
The HangarBot solution is specifically designed to work in remote locations and comes with three 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,” said HangarBot’s inventor and President of Lynk Remote Technologies 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.
