Schweiss App
Opens Hangar Doors
and New Possibilities
HAVE YOU ever forgotten or lost your keys and found
yourself locked out of a building? Last year Schweiss
Doors introduced a smartphone app that allows hangar
doors to be opened remotely. Schweiss specializes in
lift-strap bifold, " one-piece " hydraulic and architectural
designer doors and has been in the door business
since the 1980s.
Mike Schweiss, owner of Schweiss
In 2021 Ly nk Remo t e
Doors, said customers were asking
for an app to control their hangar
doors, and Schweiss, working with
Lynk Remote Technologies and its
founder and CEO Morgan Walker,
delivered. Walker is a pilot who flies
an SR22T and was inspired to create
a hangar app after he and a friend
were locked outside a hangar.
The 44-foot-wide bifold lift-strap door
is equipped with a remote opener and
automatic latching system. The hangar
owners like the bifold door style because
of its smooth, user-friendly operation and
because it looks nice.
SCHWEISS DOORS
Technologies partnered with Schweiss
Doors to offer an app that works with
new doors, can be retrofitted to existing
doors, and used with one door
or multiple doors. While the system
works with most doors, Walker said
Schweiss Doors were found to be the
most consistent and reliable.
Schweiss pointed out a door can
be opened remotely from anywhere.
Customers also can use the app to
see if they left a hangar door open,
but Schweiss said, " You don't want
to run the door unless you have a
camera tied to it. "
Interior and exterior cameras
and livestreaming allow customers
to make sure nothing is in front of
the door, before it swings out to open,
as hydraulic doors do.
" It's as if you were there, " Walker
said, " and in some cases it's a little
bit better than if you were there,
because say you're opening the door
from inside the hangar, you can't see
what's going on outside the hangar. "
40 \ AIRPORT BUSINESS / JULY/AUGUST 2022
The 50'x50' hangar is equipped with a
Schweiss Doors bifold lift-strap door,
complete with remote opener and
automatic latching system.
SCHWEISS DOORS
Some Schweiss Doors customers
may be looking only for a door
opener, but the Lynk Remote
Technologies system can do more.
A starting point for people in
colder climates is engine preheating.
Once they become familiar with
using the app to preheat engines, he
said they might wonder what else
they can do with the app and find
significant value leaving the hangar
itself at 34 degrees F, then warming
it up before they arrive.
Use of the app does not require
internet, just a cellular or Wi-Fi
network, and, Walker added, " our
product actually provides internet,
if needed. "
Lynk Remote Technologies
recently introduced an improved
mobi le app and base stat ion.
LynkAviation builds off the first
generation product (HangarBot).
The updated solution offers better
connectivity and is five times faster.
It can be used with light switches,
industrial fans, tug battery monitors,
golf cart battery monitors, thermostats
with touchscreen digital displays,
motion sensors and humidity
sensors and dehumidifiers. 
