HangarBot Pilot’s Bundle
This package deal from HangarBot includes a handful of tools aimed at giving pilots extensive remote control over their hangars, making it easier to ensure aircraft are secure and well-maintained from afar. A central component of the bundle is a video surveillance system that provides 24/7 live streaming and captures snapshots automatically if movement is sensed.
On top of that, the bundle features a remote-controlled outlet that allows users to operate any 110-volt outlet, enabling the powering on and off of air conditioning, heaters, lights and other units. Meanwhile, a thermostat shares real-time information about the hangar’s inside temperature, giving pilots the peace of mind that conditions are appropriate for the maintenance of their airplanes. The HangarBot’s door controller allows users to operate powered doors straight from their iPhone or iPad and sends alerts when someone has entered the hangar.
The HangarBot system requires the use of an Apple device and cellular data. The entire bundle goes for $1,299.Learn more at shop.hangarbot.com.
