Hero Labs believes in solving real-life problems. Our products and services enhance people’s lives with truly smart technology.
Hero Labs’ founder Krystian Zajac spent ten years creating bespoke technology for some of the most demanding clients in the world. It gave him the opportunity to experiment with radical technologies that were often years ahead of the curve.
In Jan 2016 he co-founded the multi-award-winning Insurtech Neos, the UK’s first insurer to leverage the power of the connected home. He exited Neos to Aviva in Nov 2018.
In 2021 Hero Labs will be releasing Sonic into the UK and global markets, addressing the costly escape of water claim type for the insurance industry (averaging £2.5 million per day in the UK alone)
Sonic is an all-in-one solution for protecting a whole building from water leaks. It can detect leaks anywhere in the property, alert you via the companion app, and shut off the water if necessary to stop the problem dead.
