GuideOne Insurance Selects Roost® Property Telematics Solution

Staff Writer | February 14, 2018

Roost, a leader in Home Telematics for property insurance carriers, today announced it has partnered with GuideOne Insurance to further protect and engage with its church policyholders across all 50 states. With the launch of an initial pilot program with Roost, GuideOne Insurance will provide free Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detectors to participating insureds.


With this news, GuideOne Insurance is embracing a powerful new way 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. It is especially timely given record setting low temperatures and rain across much of the U.S. in recent weeks. The partnership also demonstrates to GuideOne’s policyholders that, through Roost’s Smart Sensors, the carrier is using the latest technologies to help protect and mitigate claims for them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


“Our policyholders are the key focus of our business,” said Jessica Clark, CEO of GuideOne Insurance. “With the incorporation of the unique and innovative technology of Roost’s Smart Sensors, we are proud to find one more way to help protect them from loss and business disruption.”


The award-winning 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 mobile app to help minimize water damage and loss. These smart Wi-Fi enabled detectors set up in less than 5 minutes and can be easily located in places around the church that are most prone to water leaks and frozen pipes.


“We’ve seen great adoption across the industry with home deployments, and are now thrilled to announce our first commercial partner for our property telematics solution,” said Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “In partnering with GuideOne, Roost is helping this mission driven insurer take advantage of our best technology to deepen engagement with customers and mitigate loss that can affect a parish in one dramatic wave or drip by drip.”


Roost’s Home Telematics solutions are changing the way insurers engage with their policyholders, mitigate fire and water claims, and drive new business growth. The company continues to grow its reputation as the smart sensor notification platform, and customer engagement solution of choice, among a growing list of insurers across the U.S. and around the world.
