INTRODUCING SMARTLYNX

Today, Lynx Technology is pleased to announce its entrance into the Smart Home market with the introduction of SmartLynx 1.0. If you are a manufacturer of routers, gateways, set-top-boxes (STBs) or NAS devices and would like to participate in the growing Smart Home market in an easy way, SmartLynx is our new smart home connectivity solution, which includes a rules engine that will effectively make your product "smart home ready". 

The Smart Home Market is Growing and Interoperability is the Key

According to a report published by Markets and Markets in 2016, the global Smart Home market size was $47B in 2015. The Smart Home market is projected to grow to $122B by 2022. However, in order for the Smart Home market to reach mass adoption, it needs to surmount its biggest barrier - interoperability. SmartLynx 1.0 is a lean yet powerful software solution, developed 100% in house by Lynx, to allow customers of device manufacturers to easily coordinate and control the features of their products, to interoperate with smart home devices and services. 

SmartLynx 1.0 is Available Now for Routers, Gateways, STBs and NAS

SmartLynx 1.0 comes in Linux, Mac and Windows versions and enables consumer use cases involving digital photos and music. The Linux version can be embedded by OEMs into their devices, such as wireless routers, gateways, STBs and NAS devices. Since SmartLynx 1.0 is integrated with the IFTTT service, consumers can create IFTTT applets ("if-then" rules) that are connected to other smart home devices and services. These applets can trigger SmartLynx to automatically play songs and photos to any Smart TV or speaker on their home network, either directly or through Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast or any DLNA-enabled media renderer. Also, through integration with our Twonky Server, consumers can beam photo slideshows and music playlists to the same devices. In addition, they can store any file to the device where the SmartLynx engine is installed. 

The Future of SmartLynx

Lynx, a member of the Open Connecvitiy Foundation (OCF), plans future releases in 2017 of SmartLynx, which will allow consumers to discover other smart home devices in the home (e.g. thermostats, lights, locks, cameras, etc.), across a range of smart home protocols (e.g. Zigbee, Z-Wave, Thread, DLNA, etc.). Among other things, later versions will include our own rules engine that will enable consumers to easily create "scenes" that combine smart devices to orchestrate a particular service for the consumer. SmartLynx will ensure reliable interoperability with these smart devices, whether the consumer is at home or on-the-go, that will enable a gateway, router, NAS or STB to be a central smart home hub.
