Milwaukee-based Briggs & Stratton Corp. today unveiled Infohub, a wireless electronic monitoring application that keeps homeowners up to date about their electric generator's current status.

Homeowners can use any web-enabled device to check if their home generator system is ready to restore power if an outage occurs.

From the Infohub website and mobile app, customers can determine if their generator is running and if their generator requires maintenance. Customers can track generator performance and learn more details on their generator system through the Infohub website.

"Infohub wireless monitoring creates true peace of mind for homeowners who may be under the threat of a power outage," said Amanda Grandy, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton. "With Infohub, homeowners can receive text and email alerts when their generator needs repair or maintenance so it's always ready for operation when utility power goes down. The Infohub mobile app feature is more convenient for on-the-go homeowners than the web solutions offered by many competitive monitoring solutions."

Infohub wireless monitoring is compatible with most Briggs & Stratton standby generators as of 2005 and all GE Generator Systems standby generators. It is available through the Briggs & Stratton and GE Generator Systems dealer network.
