managing intelligent networked devices

With the release of Lynx MiND™, Lynx Technology brings its latest offering to the Smart Home market.  For Consumer Electronics companies and Service Providers who want to participate in the smart home in an easy way, Lynx MiND is an OCF Certified smart home solution, which includes a rules engine, that will enable a gateway, NAS, wireless router, STB, home controller or other device to be transformed into a central smart home hub.

Because Lynx MiND (which is an acronym for Managing Intelligent Networked Devices) is OCF Certified, it is protocol agnostic, which allows your customers to securely discover Zigbee, Z-Wave, Thread, DLNA and other smart devices* in the consumer’s home, and to ensure interoperability with these devices from one central hub using a companion app. It does this reliably without the typical headaches and performance problems that are common with smart home solutions today.

 Scene Creation

Create automated scenes such as Wake Up, Go To Bed, Leaving Home, Coming Home. For example, a "Wake Up" scene might turn on the bedroom light, turn up the thermostat, start the coffee maker and play music on the bedroom connected speaker – even if these devices were not made by the same manufacturer.

Event Driven Rules

Through the Lynx MiND Rules Engine, have an event trigger a set of actions. Example:   If a motion detector detects motion in another part of the house, while you are home alone, have your lights blink and play an alarm sound on your connected speakers.
