Staff Writer | February 08, 2018

Roost, a leader in Home Telematics for property insurance carriers, today announced it has partnered with Erie Insurance, the 10th largest homeowner’s insurer in the United States. The company has selected the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector to test customer engagement with the device in order to prevent water damage claims.

Roost continues to grow its reputation as the smart sensor notification platform, and customer engagement solution of choice, among a growing list of insurers across the U.S. and around the world.

“After looking into a number of home sensor products, we chose Roost’s Home Telematics and Smart Sensor solutions for our pilot given the product’s ease of use and data platform,” said Bob Buckel, vice president, Personal Lines Products, Erie Insurance. “Innovation in the service of customer care is at the core of both of our companies. We look forward to learning more from our pilot to further protect our Customers.”

“As one of the Nation’s largest homeowner insurers, Erie Insurance knows better than most what it takes to protect and satisfy customers over the long term,” said Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “We’re very happy to partner with Erie to offer their customers our best technology to mitigate loss due to water leaks.”

The award-winning Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. It then delivers smartphone alerts via the Roost mobile app to help minimize water damage and loss. This smart Wi-Fi enabled detector sets up in less than five minutes and is easily located in places around the home that are most prone to water leaks such as sinks, hot water heaters, toilets and various appliances.

Roost’s Home Telematics solutions are changing the way insurers engage with their policyholders, mitigate fire & water claims and drive new business growth.
