Lynx Technology Launches Smart Home Product

San Diego-based Lynx technology, a developer of software for managing media libraries and smart home devices, said today that it has launched its first product, called SmartLynx 1.0. The product, aimed at the "smart home" market, is aimed at embedding into wireless routers, gateways, set-top-box (STB) and network attached storage (NAS) devices. Lynx Technology said the product is based on "Twonky", a product which was originally developed by PacketVideo, and also said its technology team is the same team that developed the product at PacketVideo. Lynx said it is backed by San Diego-based J.M. Driver, LLC. SmartLynx's software, which connects with such services at IFTTT, allows the movement of photos and songs to smart TVs, speakers, and other media devices on home networks, controlled by such software as Apple TV, Fire TV or Chromecast.
