MILWAUKEE, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Designed to let homeowners monitor
their standby generator from the comfort of their home or on the go, Briggs &
Stratton® (NYSE: BGG) introduces infohub™ wireless monitoring.


Infohub™ wireless monitoring keeps homeowners up to date regarding their
generator's current status. Homeowners can use any web-enabled device —
including an iPhone, Android phone or iPad — 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™ operates on a smart cellular-based system that provides broad
coverage, easy set-up and a reliable connection, so that the generator and
wireless monitor are always in sync. The system allows homeowners to:

  oMonitor their standby generator's current status and track its use to
    remain aware of any maintenance needs before a home's next power outage
  oCustomize their notification settings to receive either email, text
    message or mobile app alerts about the generator's performance
  oSend maintenance notifications directly to their local dealer to quickly
    address maintenance issues and review repair options

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 expansive Briggs & Stratton and GE Generator Systems
dealer network.

To purchase infohub™ wireless monitoring, please contact your local Briggs &
Stratton or GE Generator Systems dealer. To learn more, please visit
