Smart home technology company Roost has announced partnership with Hippo Insurance to provide smart water leak and freeze detector to policyholders for free.

The Northern California based insurance company specializes in smart home insurance for modern households. Each new policyholder will receive a free Roost Smart Water Leak Detector whenever they sign up for a new home policy with Hippo Insurance.

The detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations and then deliver smartphone alerts to help minimize water damage.

Potential policyholders will be able to purchase their insurance online and benefit from transparent coverage. Hippo is also working to help customers focus more on proactive prevention of home perils such as water damage.

The device incorporates water, temperature and humidity sensors that diagnose and alert consumers to major home emergencies directly to their smartphone.

It can detect water damage due to leaks from broken pipes, appliances and basement leaks; frozen pipe water damage; mold and mildew damage caused by high humidity conditions; and inefficient energy use due to abnormal home indoor temperature, caused by problems with heating and cooling systems or gaps in home seals to the outside.

Hippo is an ideal partner for Roost, said Roel Peeters, Roost CEO and Co-Founder. “We are aligned on the same disruptive journey to transform the consumer-insurer interaction into a more engaging and tangible relationship,” Peeters said, adding that introducing simple smart devices that are easy to install and deliver proactive early warnings can provide peace of mind.
