Case Study - Avoiding Floods in Condos

Before deploying Edgecom Energy’s smart flood detection system, the condo was faced with a major flood. One of their tenants had left their unit for a few months and forgot to fully turn off their in-suite HVAC, and left a window open during the winter. 


This caused the fan coil to freeze and eventually burst, which resulted in a flood for the entire floor. This damaged the walls, hallways and overloaded the drains.


The cost of the damage was $320,000 and after the insurance claim the building's premium increased from $80,000 to $120,000. Their deductible also increased from $5,000 to $50,000.

The Solution: A Smart flood detection system from Edgecom Energy was installed. The building management will receive alerts if any of the flood detection sensors get wet or if water consumption is higher than expected. 

Flood Detection project - the numbers:

Cost of flood damage: $320,000

Insurance premium after the flood: 50% increase 

Deductible increased from $5,000 to $50,000

Cost for Flood Detection system: $80,000 for 500 Units
