Guideone Launches Commercial Property Insurance Deployment With Roost Telematics Sensors

GuideOne Insurance announced the first commercial deployment of Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detectors by a property insurance carrier. The pilot places 4,000 sensors in churches across the country starting March 1, aiming to demonstrate the value of detection and responsiveness in minimizing loss and disruption.


Roost’s Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector senses water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperatures, delivering alerts via mobile app to help minimize damage and loss. The Wi-Fi enabled detectors set up quickly, located in places around a facility that are most prone to water leaks and frozen pipes.


“Roost’s simple, affordable telematics solution helps GuideOne agents and brokers nurture a digital relationship with commercial clients and supports claims mitigation for preventable water leaks. With help from Roost, GuideOne aims to demonstrate the value of using the latest technologies to proactively protect policyholders.” – Vice President, Strategic Initiatives & Chief Information Officer, Michelle Glasl.
