How the Notion system works

Homeowners simply place Notion’s sensors near doors, windows, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and water sources (e.g., toilets, air conditioners, sinks and pipes). The sensors watch for unusual activity, making homes safer and helping clients get ahead of any problems that could become catastrophic if left undetected.

There are three parts to the Notion system:



The sensors monitor water leaks, temperature changes, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and the opening and closing of doors and windows.



The bridge is a plug-in device that relays information from the sensors to a client’s smartphone via Wi-Fi.

The Notion app alerts the homeowner and allows them to manage their system from anywhere.

Selling the smart home program

Step 1

Begin by adding the program to every homeowners quote and telling your clients about the benefits of installing the Notion system in their homes. Today’s homeowners and renters are interested in early warning systems that prevent water damage, break-ins, fires and more.

Step 2

Next, let your clients know that they are responsible for purchasing the Notion system (more about that below) and that their premium discount will be discontinued after 55 days if they do not purchase a Notion kit and activate the sensors. Note that the Notion kit is specifically required for Nationwide's program.

Step 3

Finally, clients must agree to the terms and conditions of the program — including the sharing of their data with Nationwide.


Good to tell customers

Water damage is the cause of most home insurance claims — almost 30%, in fact.3 A smart home system can help prevent damage from overflowing bathtubs, frozen water pipes that burst, sewer backups, sump pump failures and more.

Getting customers started

Let customers know to watch for an email from Nationwide that will include a link to order their Notion smart home monitoring system. The email will also include a code to receive the almost-50% discount off the price of their kit.

  • Three-sensor kit — $75 (MSRP $149)
  • Five-sensor kit — $100 (MSRP $199)
  • Additional sensors — 20% off

Notion will ship the kit to your customers. Remember, if they want to keep their 10% premium savings, they must install the sensors, plug in the bridge, download the Notion app on their smartphone or tablet and activate the sensors within 55 days of enrolling in the program.

The smart home monitoring system and related support will be provided by Notion, the third-party system provider. Nationwide is not responsible for the system or any home monitoring.
