The value of the Roost devices includes their ability to provide early warning to church pastors and their facility managers of potential water leaks, freeze situations and high humidity instances that can damage property. The deployment of the devices also serves as a demonstration to GuideOne’s policyholders that, through Roost’s Smart Sensors, the carrier is using the latest technologies to help protect and mitigate claims on a constant basis, according to the vendor.
