Home Telematics Program

Armed Forces Insurance, an insurance company who has catered to military families for over 130 years, has joined Roost’s Home Telematics Program (HTP) in partnership with Willis Towers Watson. Armed Forces Insurance joins CFM Insurance, Encompass Insurance, State Auto Insurance and Country Financial as the first five announced HTP members. 
The HTP’s mission is to apply advanced analytics to reveal insights regarding the effect of home telematics on loss mitigation and member engagement. As a member, Armed Forces Insurance will deploy various kits of Roost Smart Sensors, including the Roost Smart 9V Battery (for smoke alarms) and the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector to a set of their policyholders. These devices will deliver notifications to customers’ smartphones through a custom branded white-label app when a suspected water leak or fire event occurs.
