Notion Tapped by American Modern for Smart Home Monitoring Pilot

Notion, a home monitoring solution powered by an all-in-one smart home sensor, today announced that American Modern will offer Notion to select American Modern policyholders as part of its smart home water sensor pilot program. The pilot program emphasizes the importance of monitoring for water leaks in real time to help reduce damage.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, water is the biggest threat to a home.  Approximately one in 50 homes has a property damage claim caused by water damage each year, resulting in an average insurance claim of $8,000. American Modern and Notion aim to help homeowners monitor for leaks and other events to better manage risk via Notion’s smart home platform.

“To date, in every instance that Notion has detected a water leak, not a single insurance claim has been filed. We’re seeing homeowners respond immediately to water leaks and significantly mitigate damages,” said Brett Jurgens, co-founder and CEO at Notion. “Our mission at Notion is to help people protect what they love most. We’re thrilled to partner with American Modern to empower their customers to better monitor their homes and to take immediate action in the case of emergencies.”

Notion’s home monitoring solution alerts customers to water leaks, in addition to smoke alarms, temperature changes, and doors, garage doors and windows opening and closing – all with just one device. This gives homeowners the flexibility to monitor and receive instant alerts about events happening across their entire home.

“American Modern is continually looking for new ways to help keep our customers’ homes and families safe. We’re excited to partner with Notion and to leverage this technology to help stop a leak from becoming a costly and heartbreaking disaster,” said Shannon Lewandowski, Head of IoT for American Modern’s newly created Innovation & Digitalization team.
