LYNQ DEVICE IS NOW AVAILABLE

A PEOPLE COMPASS THAT KEEPS GROUPS TOGETHER WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PHONES OR CONNECTIVITY.

Keeping tabs of friends and family at ski slopes, parks, festivals and pretty much anywhere in the outdoors just got easier. I’m excited to announce that our first product is now commercially available. The Lynq device is a people compass that allows groups of people to stay together by locating anyone without the need for phones, networks or infrastructure of any kind. After selling more than 20,000 units totaling in $1.7 million in presales on Indiegogo, the Lynq device is now available to ship to your house in a few days at www.lynqme.com.

We’ve all been in a situation where we are trying to find or stay connected with a friend, family member or colleague in a crowded space or during an off-the-grid activity, but our phones, apps and trackers that require signal just don’t work. Lynq is intended to help people enjoy activities together without waiting, worrying and wandering around, looking for their group.

Ski has always been one of my favorite things to do until I got injured and lost for hours before I could find my friends and get help. After that, I had to fight back the fear of going back to the slopes when enjoying worry-free outdoor adventure was not an option. This is why at Lynq we’ve engineered technology that is liberating and designed to be reliable, intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to adventure and explore.

Easy-to-Use By Everyone

Lynq has an intuitive compass-like display that allows you to see your relative distance and direction from each other, keeping your group together even when other technology fails. Ideal for outdoor adventures, Lynq allows groups of up to 12 to find each other across miles without the need for phones, apps, subscription fees and reliance on cell phone networks. The weather-proof, clip-on device uses our proprietary protocols to display each users’ distance and direction from each other in real-time and allows for tens of thousands of devices to work in the same vicinity.

Lynq can be set up in seconds, pairing devices and enter names with a simple one-button interface. A simple click allows you to move between your group members, displaying a user’s name, arrow and number of feet that are visible under any conditions on a backlit and glare-protected screen. Users can also set boundaries for their group, receiving sound, optical and vibration alerts the instant someone leaves the safe zone, which is perfect for young kids, pets and those with special needs or Alzheimer’s. In addition, a “homebase” (i.e. base camp, car, ski lift or hotel) can be set as an anchor for everyone to find each other.

Useful in Any Outdoor Situation

Lynq is a valuable tool for any outdoor application. This includes helping adventure seekers go off-the-grid and enjoy skiing, hiking, traveling, cycling and more without the need to worry about cell service, maps or phone battery life. Additional use cases include public events, special needs care, disaster relief, first responders and government applications.

It’s only the start

People are often curious and ask, “How does Lynq work, it feels like magic. There is a lot behind this product — just the first application of our technology. Lynq’s proprietary technology consists in a rapidly deployable, decentralized, private network that connects devices across miles without infrastructure — in a manner that’s uniquely difficult to intercept. Able to integrate into any device, the Lynq software is scalable to a large number of applications and our own device is the first step towards a larger direction of an ecosystem “connected by Lynq”.

Exciting times!

We’re grateful to all the support from our customers, investors, mentors, partners and large Lynq family.
