Coming Soon: Hiro

Meet Hiro :

Hiro is looking to offer home insurance coupled with smart technology and rewards. “We started Hiro because we believe insurance should be something that benefits you whether you claim or not. After all, who wants to pay for something and never use it?” In other words, Hiro will provide discounts for having devices that make the home safer and offer an automated claim process. But for now, Hiro is still in the process of applying for FCA authorization.

Hiro is the works of London-based Hero Labs that develops a smart home leak detector.

“To combat the business challenges caused by COVID 19, we at Hero Labs have had to make some pretty big decisions. We have had to announce a temporary pause in promoting our whole-home leak protection solution, Sonic. Sonic requires professional installation, enough said. On the other hand, we’ve been far from idle, and we’ve got something very exciting to reveal… We are building an insurance product for smart homes! It will give customers who are smart and protect their homes with smart technology rewards, perks and discounts. A lot of it is strictly hush-hush right now, but if you could visit download our app, and let me know your thoughts, it would be very much appreciated!!” – Hamish Neale, Commercial Director at Hero Labs.

Bottom Line: A few come to mind.
