Water leak and freeze sensors designed by Meshify, the Internet of Things (IoT) subsidiary of specialty insurer HSB, will connect through the new Amazon Sidewalk shared community network to help prevent property damage.

As part of the launch of Amazon Sidewalk, HSB will deliver its next generation Meshify Defender S smart sensor to a broader group of business owners, homeowners, and their insurers. Activated through the Meshify Protect app, HSB’s Meshify sensors monitor property 24/7 to detect frozen pipes, water leaks, and other perils, issuing alerts when conditions require action.

Amazon Sidewalk creates a low-bandwidth private community network designed to connect devices with the help of Sidewalk bridge devices, including Echo and Ring devices, with the intention to make it easier and less expensive for HSB customers to install and use HSB’s Meshify sensors.

Once launched on Amazon Sidewalk, the Meshify Defender S sensor and its algorithms will be more accessible to restaurants, medical offices, smaller commercial buildings, single-family homes, and other smaller locations, according to a company press release.
