Franklin Mutual (Branchville, N.J.) has selected Roost’s (Sunnyvale, Calif.) home telematics solutions for water leak and freezing detection in order to drive greater customer engagement and satisfaction, and to mitigate the costs of water leak claims.
“By partnering with Roost to offer our policyholders Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detectors, we are continuing our commitment to better serve our policyholders with innovative services, products and coverages,” comments Brian Lytwynec, President and CEO, Franklin Mutual Insurance. “Together we are pairing valuable innovative devices with excellent insurance that delivers protection and priceless peace of mind around the home for our customers.”
Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations.
