Detecting fires is a must, but what if sensing technology could actually help prevent fires in the first place? Electrical fires are a hidden danger, emanating from cords and wires that have been damaged over time and slowly begin to emit micro-sparks. If homeowners knew that an electrical fire hazard existed, they could take action to ensure an electrical fire did not develop.
That’s where Whisker Labs comes in. Our sensing and software platform mines the home electrical network to monitor and alert to tiny arcs and sparks that are happening anywhere in the home. One plug-in sensor installs in one minute to monitor the whole home for these electrical fire hazards. No installers or electricians are needed to activate the Ting service.
We have also developed energy management services to intelligently reduce home energy demand during peak load times to help communities and homes save energy and money. Our Connected Savings service is used by energy providers to help balance the grid and optimize residential thermostats for savings and comfort.
Together, Whisker Labs’ Home Intelligence offerings enable greater safety and savings.
