Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

Incentive programs

The various incentive programs are designed to reduce the risk of fire and business interruption in agricultural and various light industrial operations. They are designed to encourage clients to invest in effective loss prevention measures.

Why are these incentive programs in place?

  • In an effort to help our customers protect their investments, various incentive programs have been introduced. They have the potential to save thousands of dollars in order to reduce fire hazards and business interruptions.

  • Fires are one of the leading causes of loss each year, and many of them are caused by an electrical problem that could have been avoided if proper detection measures had been taken.

How does the solution work?

Intelligent sensors are installed at the building's main electrical entrance and provide continuous monitoring of the electrical network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These can detect electrical or thermal anomalies and faults on the network, including :

  • non-compliant wiring and configuration;

  • motor degradation and failure

  • Lighting and ventilation equipment faults;

  • Overheating of a circuit breaker panel and main switches.

If an anomaly is detected, a text message and/or email is automatically and immediately sent to the customer and his electrician.

Both the customer and the electrician have access to a personalized dashboard on their smartphones, which helps them diagnose and track faults. In turn, PrevTech's technical team, dedicated to monitoring the various cases, will offer assistance to guide the diagnostic effort and encourage corrective action.

What kind of information does the dashboard provide?

  • Real-time electrical data from the units such as electrical fault levels on each panel being monitored

  • Real-time electrical panel temperature and ambient temperature.

  • Historical data displayed in a customizable graph.

  • Electrical safety index that provides a rating from A (excellent) to D (at risk) and serves as a reference for the overall condition of the electrical system.​

What happens if a customer receives an alert but does not take immediate action and a claim is made?

The solution is a key component of a loss prevention program. Each claim is handled on a case-by-case basis, allowing the claims team to review any information to determine its significance to the loss. However, this solution is not intended to be used for claims processing purposes.
