Roost® announces partnership with American National

CA-based connected home technology developer Roost announced today a new partnership with Texas-based American National Insurance Company. In a strategic agreement to help mitigate claim costs and increase customer engagement, American National will offer free sensors to select policyholders through its property and casualty subsidiaries.

American National policyholders with specific risk characteristics will be offered the award-winning Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector. American National will also look to strengthen its engagement with insureds through an American National branded mobile app, enhanced with severe weather alerts from IBM/The Weather Company.

The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. Each detector can be easily located in places around the home most prone to water leaks, such as under kitchen sinks, hot water heaters, toilets and various appliances. It then delivers smartphone alerts via the Roost app to help minimize water damage and loss.
