MTSI Lynx Division Releases LynxNet Messenger2 to Optimize Alert Messages
Device sends 4K alerts to T.V. and monitors anywhere in the world
RICHARDSON, TX, Feb. 3, 2024 – Lynx Systems, a leading builder of duress and mass notification networks, announced LynxNet Messenger2 with remote control. The device works with a customer-supplied monitor or public viewing monitor to visually display a message of the customer’s choosing. The device is quickly enabled by connecting the HDMI input from a viewing monitor to the LynxNet Messenger2 device input and connect the LynxNet Messenger2 output to the HDMI monitor input.
Normally the feed is simply passed through, and when an alarm is activated, the screen transitions to the Lynx alert with a sound which can be prerecorded or synthesized speech in a male or female voice. Alerts are cleared by one of three methods:
- A pre-programmed time period expires
- An “all clear” message is sent
- The LynxNet Messenger2 remote control is pressed for clearing the alert locally
This upgrade has a 4K monitor HDMI system, controlled by an ARM quad-core microprocessor. Gigahertz Ethernet is for extremely fast alerts. It is easily updated online.
“The Lynx system allows for extremely versatile alarm and notification configurations,” MTSI CEO Fred Beckhusen said. “Sometimes incidents happen and staff for large organizations need to send an alarm immediately. Lynx customizes these mass notification solutions on large scales.”

About Lynx Systems:
Micro Technology Services Inc. (MTSI), an engineering and manufacturing company located in Richardson, Texas, is a Texas corporation and has been in business since 1990. The Security Products Division of MTSI has designed, developed and marketed duress buttons and duress products and video solutions. Marketing these products formed a natural progression in the development of the Lynx System in 2004.
As a member of several security organizations, IAHSS, IACLEA and ASIS International to name a few, and exhibiting at their events, MTSI responded to many customers’ requests for an easier, more cost-effective way to install and operate duress and notification alarm systems. Our customers explained that the two main reasons limiting the implementation of Duress Panic Buttons for their employees who needed them were the cost of installing conventional panic buttons, and the disruption required during installation, particularly in the healthcare industry.
Acting on the knowledge that most people in schools and education campuses or healthcare facilities are already near a PC on a reliable and robust network, MTSI developed a network-based mass notification solution that allowed both hardware and software alarms to communicate with a dedicated server installed on the customer’s already-existing local area network. Utilizing our in-house engineering and manufacturing departments allows us to quickly develop application-specific hardware and software solutions to meet the market needs.
MTSI welcomes input from our customers and continually strives to improve the Lynx systems based upon our customers’ needs.
