HSB Launches New IoT Solution for Schools

By Ken Briodagh October 04, 2019

HSB recently announced a new customized IoT solution for schools, which is designed to protect school buildings and equipment against water leaks, freezing pipes, mold, and perishable goods spoilage.

The HSB Connected Technologies reportedly will provide school officials and risk management staff the secure knowledge that the school is being monitored continuously for water-related problems.

“We think of schools as bustling with students, teachers and activity,” said Jack Volinski, SVP, HSB. “But what about when the school is empty? Perhaps at night, on a holiday weekend, or winter and summer breaks? Our IoT solution monitors property and equipment risks and sends an alert to proactively mitigate damages that traditional building management systems cannot prevent.”

HSB’s school solution is powered by advanced algorithms that consider multiple risk factors and work right out of the box, according to the release. The solution’s IoT sensors use LoRaWAN network protocols to provide long range and strong signal strength, the company said. A mobile app allows school officials to check on property conditions in gymnasiums, locker rooms, offices and other school locations whenever they need. HSB’s solution also includes digital collection of temperature data for compliance reporting that eliminates manual record keeping.

HSB’s IoT solution for schools is available through school risk pools and property-casualty insurance companies that partner with HSB. HSB also offers sensor solutions designed for apartments and condos, houses of worship, municipal buildings, medical offices and restaurants.
