Lynxspring and SkyFoundry announced today a new Onyxx® SkySpark® Edge Analytics solution which embeds SkyFoundry’s SkySpark® Everywhere™ analytics software in the Lynxspring Onyxx® hardware platform, creating an ideal solution for processing, analyzing and presenting IoT data from equipment systems in facilities of all types.

Lynxspring, Inc. (, a premier developer and provider of open, IP-control solutions for building automation, energy management, and edge-to-enterprise integration, and SkyFoundry, LLC (, a leading developer of analytics software for use with equipment systems and facilities of all types, announced today a new Onyxx® SkySpark® Edge Analytics solution which embeds SkyFoundry’s SkySpark® Everywhere™ analytics software in the Lynxspring Onyxx® hardware platform.

Lynxspring’s Onyxx® hardware platform is designed to bring advanced IoT software applications to the “edge”. The Onyxx® embedded edge family of modular, open hardware, bridges and gateways support multiple activities across key market segments, and edge-to-enterprise and Cloud applications.

SkySpark® Everywhere™ enables the full capabilities of SkyFoundry’s SkySpark® Analytics software to be deployed in a distributed architecture where multiple nodes work together to perform analytics at the edge, while still providing users with a unified view of their data and analytic results.

By embedding SkySpark® Analytics on the Onyxx® hardware platform, advanced analytics can be processed locally at the device-level, providing real-time intelligence without requiring data be sent to the Cloud for analysis. The Onyxx® SkySpark® Edge Analytics solution supports data access via BACnet IP, Modbus TCP, Obix, Project Haystack, SNMP, Sedona, OPC UA, MQTT, SQL, CSV import and a REST API to enable connection to the vast majority of equipment and control systems found in buildings.

“Building owners and operators are looking for faster, near real-time analysis of the mass volumes of data produced by equipment systems to improve operational decision-making. It can now be said that the data produced by a device is now more valuable than the cost of the device,” said Marc Petock, Chief Communications Officer and Vice President, Marketing at Lynxspring. “Real-time access to data within buildings and facilities is now mandatory and no longer optional. We are in an era where data technologies and analytics need to provide customers a way to capture data from different sources, make it consistent and meaningful, and use it across multiple applications.”

“We hear a lot of talk about the Cloud as it relates to the IoT. In many cases, it sounds like the Cloud is being presented as the solution to all things IoT,” said John Petze, Principal at SkyFoundry. “The reality is that it is not possible, cost-effective or desirable, to transmit every piece of data from every device to the Cloud before being able to analyze and generate value from the data.”

The software functions required to process, analyze and present IoT data, need to reside at every level of the architecture from the edge to the Cloud. The combination of the Onyxx® hardware platform with SkySpark® Everywhere™ analytics software, makes Onyxx® SkySpark® Edge Analytics an ideal solution for equipment systems and facilities of all types.

This is the first product to be released following the OEM Agreement between SkyFoundry and Lynxspring announced in late 2017. Lynxspring and SkyFoundry will be demonstrating the new Onyxx SkySpark® Edge Analytics solution during AHR Expo 2018 in the Lynxspring Booth #4149, South Hall in the Building Automation and Control Showcase.
