significantly reduce the risk of stove fires for your clients' homes with pippa

Prevent major losses!

Fire risk is one of the major causes of losses to property managers and home insurers.

Cooking fires are the leading cause of fires, causing around half of all house fires. Pippa detects cooking hazards before they have a chance to cause house fires, preventing property damage.  

How is PIPPA better than smoke alarms?

Conventional Smoke Alarms and Heat Alarms are designed to trigger after the property has caught fire - a survey by "Which Consumer Reports" found even the best performing kitchen heat alarm took 5 minutes to respond to fire.

5 minutes after a fire starts, the damage is likely to be substantial and the restoration costs significant.

About 1 in 800 houses have a house fire in a given year and the household fire damage claims in the UK average over £50,000.

Pippa warns the user before a fire starts, preventing danger to them and damage to the property. This substantially reduces the costs to the insurer and the property manager, as well as the disruption to the residents.

Pippa warns the user before a fire starts, preventing danger to them, but also preventing damage to the property. This substantially reduces the costs to the insurer and the property manager, as well as the disruption to the residents.

Stove fire risks increase several fold with age, and also with alcohol and substance use. If you operate or insure properties occupied the over 65s, or student accommodation or similar, Pippa can significantly reduce your fire risk exposure.

Pippa surveyed 1,000 home insurance customers aged 50+. 

  • 23% of them had had a cooking fire
  • 10% had experienced a house fire.
  • 16% regularly leave the stove on.
  • 77% occasionally leave the stove on.

Preventing these hazards presents a massive opportunity to reduce the fire risk exposure of insurers and property managers.

Example Calculation:

Total fire claims average £80 per household per year in the UK (ABI data). If Pippa prevents the 50% of these that start on the stove, the annual saving is £40 per year, giving Pippa payback of around 2 years.

Stove fire rates for the over 65s are double the rate of the under 65s. Targeting the over 65s will yield savings of up to £80 per year, giving Pippa a payback of around 1 year.
