Gen-2 IoT Sensors + Software Deliver Equipment Alerts

Equipment breakdown and technology insurer Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB) unveils its next generation sensors and software to connect equipment and facilities through the Internet of Things (IoT). The sensors come in a simple kit for commercial customers and use proprietary algorithms to help prevent loss and improve performance.


The HSB sensor systems perform as an early warning system for building owners, schools, and other 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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


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.


The sensors use LoRaWAN low-power wide-area networks wireless technology with extended range to connect dispersed equipment and facilities and can communicate through building walls and floors. HSB’s technology uses cellular rather than Wi-Fi systems, which helps protect data security and is less affected by power outages. For more details, visit HSB.
