New smart home insurance packages announced by Neos

Neos, a UK smart home insurance provider launched in 2017, has launched new tech-enabled home insurance packages.

The new packages use smart home technology to help UK homeowners protect their smart homes from domestic fires, theft and water damage.

The new insurance packages include:
• Neos SmartCam: a top-selling home security camera on Amazon that customers can access via their Neos app to always be connected to the home.
• LeakBot: a 24/7 solution that monitors the entire home for hidden leaks and burst pipes – the number one source of domestic damage in UK homes. 
• Roost Leak Sensor: a device that detects piping problems such as freezing, leaks and humidity early before they escalate.
• Roost Smart Smoke Alarm Battery: a solution that transforms existing smoke alarms into smart alarms via the Neos app. 

All devices use a Wi-Fi connection, and homeowners will receive a notification on their smartphone via the Neos app if any unusual activity occurs.

Matt Poll, CEO and co-founder of Neos said: “We’re so excited to launch the next generation of our smart home insurance to UK consumers. Our latest tech bundles take us a step forward in providing customers with a refreshingly smarter way to look after their home.

“Early detection is at the heart of what we do. Our smart technology helps prevent incidents from happening in the home, meaning our customers spend less time making claims and more time feeling confident that their home is being looked after”

Last year it was announced that Aviva Insurance Ltd was taking a majority stake in the company, combining the power of smart home technology with comprehensive home and contents insurance, all accessible via the Neos app.
