ROC-Connect Launches IoT Home Safety Solutions to Help Insurance Companies

By Ken Briodagh November 02, 2016

ROC-Connect, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider and creator of the smart home brand OZOM, has announced a suite of new home safety solutions designed to help insurers protect their investments, while giving consumers an easy way to protect homes from fire, flood, and frost. Customers use a smartphone to monitor remotely, and evaluate risks using a new Home Safety Scorecard.

ROC-Connect is offering the safety kit and scorecard to insurance companies as a turnkey solution that includes distribution to the insurers’ customers. The company says these new IoT solutions will help insurance providers mitigate risk, reduce claims, improve customer engagement, and generate new revenues.

“We’re giving insurance companies a turnkey solution that will help them exploit the IoT and engage more effectively with their customers,” said Marcus Scheiber, CEO and co-founder, ROC-Connect. “Insurers can move from simply reacting to events to become more proactive, offering their consumers simple and affordable solutions to make homes safer.”

The Home Safety Kit includes fire and water sensors which are monitored around the clock and link directly to emergency services. A broad range of other smart home and IoT devices can be added to the system, including home automation.

The Smart Home Kit and Home Safety Scorecard are both supported by the ROC-Master App, allowing insurance companies to stay in constant communication and improve their relationships with homeowners. Insurers can tailor messaging to a homeowner with local weather alerts and advice to help manage any known local hazards such as a bushfire or flood.

This kind of marriage between IoT developers, consumers and service providers like insurance companies will help encourage adoption and trust in the industry, so look for more of the same all over the consumer-facing IoT.
