Westfield, a U.S.-based property and casualty company, has introduced Ting, a solution aimed at enhancing fire safety for its customers. In collaboration with Whisker Labs, Westfield is offering the Ting sensor along with three years of fire prevention service at no cost. Ting employs smart plug-in sensors to monitor a home’s electrical network to detect electrical hazards, alert homeowners, and guide them through necessary repairs to prevent potential electrical fires.

This year, Westfield will provide Ting at no charge to 10,000 home and condo customers, with plans to extend the offering to an additional 20,000+ homeowners over the next three years. According to Steve Butler, AVP of personal lines product management and underwriting at Westfield, the initiative aligns with the company’s mission to provide peace of mind to its customers by preventing home fires.

Ting is recognized as a reliable smart home technology with a track record of preventing electrical fires by giving advanced warnings. It can also detect electrical faults in the utility grid that might damage homes and potentially trigger wildfires. Additionally, Ting can predict issues leading to water damage in homes, offering users valuable notifications and tips.

Whisker Labs, which partnered with Hartford Steam Boiler in 2018 to bring Ting to the insurance market, is committed to reducing home fires and delivering an engaging customer experience. John Riggs, CTO and SVP of Applied Technology Solutions for HSB, highlights that Ting is easy to install, user-friendly, and has received positive feedback from insurance clients and policyholders.
