Alfa Insurance, a multi-state insurance provider based in Montgomery, Ala., has undertaken a pilot program with Roost, a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based provider of home telematics solutions to the property/casualty industry. Alfa will deploy the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector with the aim of increasing customer engagement and helping to reduce claims frequency and severity, according to a Roost statement.
“We are very excited to announce this pilot program with Roost to deliver their smart sensors in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi,” comments Crystal Johnson, VP, Business Innovation, Alfa Insurance. “At Alfa Insurance, we are focused on providing our policyholders with value and trusted solutions. Our relationship with Roost will help us to achieve this goal.”
The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. Each detector can be easily located in places around the home most prone to water leaks, such as under kitchen sinks, hot water heaters, toilets and various appliances, according to Roost. It then delivers smartphone alerts via an app to help minimize water damage and loss.
“Roost is proud to announce this pilot program with Alfa Insurance,” comments Roel Peeters, Roost CEO. “By deploying the innovative Roost water leak and freeze solution, we will help Alfa Insurance meet their goals of reducing water leak loss and severity and providing peace of mind to their policyholders that their home is protected, even when they are away.”
