Roost Unveils Next Gen Smart Home Products

Staff Writer | October 04, 2017

Roost reveals the second generation of its Roost Smart Battery and Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector. Enhanced with new electronics and upgraded Wi-Fi provisioning, consumers will experience faster and easier setup along with improved performance and reliability. 

The Roost Smart Battery and Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector are designed to address the realities of fire as well as water damage experienced by consumers and home insurance companies. Via its 9V form factor, free mobile app, and advanced Wi-Fi technology, the Roost Smart Battery transforms existing smoke and CO alarms into smart alarms.

The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector senses water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. It can easily be located in places around the home that are most prone to water leaks, and from there delivers smartphone alerts through the Roost App to help minimize water damage and loss. Both smart Wi-Fi enabled detectors set up in less than five minutes.

 Enhancements to Roost’s Second Generation Products include:

·        Easier as well as faster set-up to home Wi-Fi

·        New set-up process replaces audio with a silent wireless connection method

·        New electronics improve performance and lower power consumption improved reliability and more robust connection between

“Roost devices and the Roost cloud consumers and home insurance providers have been searching for decades for technology solutions to mitigate loss from both fire and water emergencies,” says Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “To meet both these needs, as well as to disruptively improve engagement between insurers and consumers, Roost developed the Roost smart sensor platform. Now the company has made both even better by simplifying the setup process and improving the devices’ day-to-day operation.”

In addition to delivering critical smart home functionality direct to consumers, Roost’s Home Telematics solutions are changing the way insurers engage with their policyholders, mitigate fire and water claims, and drive new business growth.
