After two years of development, Los Angeles-bases Lynk Remote Technologies is debuting its new HangarBot aircraft hangar monitoring system this week at EAA AirVenture (Booth 4060D). According to the manufacturer, the system provides users with the ability to control, automate and secure general aviation hangars remotely through network connectivity. It consists of a wall-mounted hub with sensors to monitor and control hangar temperature, video surveillance and other features, such as instantly opening the hangar door, all through commands from the HangarBot mobile app.
Users can select from three cellular data plan options, which will allow them to also use the device as a Wi-Fi hotspot. “We wanted to offer a practical solution with low monthly data service costs,” said system inventor and company president Morgan Walker. “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.”
Once a user is registered, the lowest level data plan is automatically activated, and customers can adjust their accounts at any time through the company’s website. “Now owners can protect and manage the environment around the aircraft easily and with confidence, anywhere in the world,” noted Walker.
