Neos, the UK’s first smart home insurance provider, has partnered with HomeServe Labs, to offer the world’s leading smart water leak detection system LeakBot as part of its smart home insurance package.
Neos is a pioneer in harnessing the power of smart home technology to bring homeowners a totally new and unique combination of home protection and insurance. Neos offers a selection of cutting-edge smart home products as standard with each policy saving customers hundreds of pounds in upfront costs.
This is combined with 24/7 monitoring and assistance, plus the back up of comprehensive home insurance, all managed through an app, helping consumers protect their homes from anywhere in the world. The new Wi-Fi version of LeakBot from HomeServe Labs will provide Neos with a national solution to leak detection in the home, mitigating the risk of water damage across the UK.
Launching this summer, Neos customers will be offered the latest LeakBot smart water leak alarm to install in their home which seamlessly connects to the home Wi-Fi system. LeakBot will integrate with Neos’ intuitive app and alert users as soon as a potential leak is detected. LeakBot can help protect against water damage and leaks in the home, which are the second biggest driver of home insurance claims. A leak in the home can cause major disruption and distress, especially as leaks are frequently hidden with water escaping slowly over a long period of time, meaning homeowners often aren’t aware there is an issue until it is too late.
Matt Poll, CEO & co-founder, Neos said: “Escape of water can be a devastating incident for any homeowner, but smart technology is helping people catch issues early before they cause major damage. Partnering with HomeServe Labs is a key part of our ambition to deliver the next generation of smart insurance to customers and with additions like LeakBot in our offering, we’ll be able to help our customers detect even more incidents before they become disasters”
Craig Foster, CEO, HomeServe Labs, said: “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Neos as the latest insurer to offer LeakBot to its customers. LeakBot is a leader in the space for preventing unnecessary escape of water claims and is the right fit for Neos which chooses the best of breed solutions to mitigate risks for its customers. We are looking forward to seeing these benefits materialise in the time ahead and contribute to our mutual success.”
