HSB Ships Next Generation Sensors and Software
Hartford Steam Boiler, the equipment breakdown and technology insurer, introduced today its next generation sensors and software to connect equipment and facilities through the Internet of Things. The new HSB sensors use low-power wide-area networks wireless technology certified by the LoRa Alliance™, with extended range to connect dispersed equipment and facilities and can communicate through building walls and floors. HSB’s algorithms analyze data on temperature, water accumulation, power outages, motion and humidity to identify and report on potential risks. The enhanced software can account for temporary conditions, such as workers loading a freezer, so alerts can more accurately identify and communicate when action is required.
“We offer an easy IoT solution that’s built on HSB’s decades of experience with equipment and technology . HSB’s engineers leveraged technology designed by an HSB IoT startup acquisition to provide longer range communication and to deliver more useful information that we can customize for each sensor risk application.” – Senior Vice President at HSB, Jack Volinski.
Sensor Systems by HSB is an early warning system for small and mid-size organizations. The service includes all the hardware and software necessary to monitor conditions 24/7, analyze the data and issue alerts when changes suggest trouble. Since its launch in 2016, the system collected 250 million sensor readings from client locations.
