Franklin Mutual Adds Roost Home Telematics Solutions

Staff Writer | October 02, 2017

Roost announce its partnership with Franklin Mutual Insurance in a strategic agreement to drive insurer enrollment, customer loyalty, and engagement. Each Franklin Mutual home insurance policyholder will be eligible to receive a free Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector.

By leveraging the home telematics platforms, Franklin Mutual continues to demonstrate a daily commitment to its customers through Roost technology solutions that help mitigate the claims cost and hassle of water leak claims for their policyholders.

“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,” says Brian Lytwynec, President and CEO of Franklin Mutual. “Together we are pairing valuable innovative devices with excellent insurance that delivers protection and priceless peace of mind around the home for our customers.”

“We are gratified to be working with one of New Jersey’s most established and respected insurers and see this as another strong validation of our smart sensor notification platform,” says Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “Franklin Mutual clearly sees the impact our solutions can have on helping to prevent water claims as well as improving their customer engagement and retention.”

The 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/Franklin Mutual Insurance 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.
