No one should ever die or be injured in a fire. Fire detection alerts us when a problem already exists, so we can respond with fire mitigation methods (such as sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers and your fire department). But true fire prevention has yet to be created. At ElertCo, we know we can do better. ElertCo will save lives by bringing HeatSafe Technology to the world, and introducing a new way to defend against electrical fires.

ElertCo (, a Pacific Northwest based life-safety company, has designed and engineered an ecosystem of patent-pending smart devices. These devices prevent fires by detecting heat at electrical connections.  Then, a notification is sent to the user before smoke and/or fire are present. Our initial markets are multi-resident housing, and the marine industry. The technology is being developed to be used in any of the trillions of locations where electrical connections exist.
