Unfortunately, many churches and schools have inadequate protection against fire and other risks including carbon monoxide and freezing temperatures. Since clergy and staff have varying hours and can’t always be onsite, many churches are vacant several days during the week. As a result, problems may arise and go undetected causing significant damage.

“We developed this technology because we knew there was a better way to mitigate tragedies and alert occupants of a building before flames and smoke appeared and before carbon monoxide levels increased to harmful levels,” said OneEvent President and CEO, Kurt Wedig. “With our software engine and learning algorithm, OneEvent can help prevent a disaster from happening in the first place.”

Church Mutual Insurance Company is working with OneEvent Technologies who will be installing OnePrevent™ Systems in selected churches and schools throughout the Midwest.  Through its partnership with OneEvent, Church Mutual is providing customers with the latest technology and offering this Internet of Things (IoT) solution through their CM Sensor™ program.

“The OnePrevent System is yet another tool we can provide to our policyholders to keep their people and property safe,” said Tom Kluxdal, director of innovation at Church Mutual. “We place a high value on innovative technology that helps prevent problems before they occur, with IoT and artificial intelligence being critical to our efforts. In fact, OnePrevent fits well into our overall innovation strategy, which is fueled by our Innovation Lab. We look to partner with firms such as OneEvent and also create our own risk-mitigation solutions.” Read the full story here.
