Here’s how Notion works

Homeowners simply place Notion’s sensors near doors, windows, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and water sources (e.g., toilets, air conditioners, sinks and pipes). The sensors monitor activity and send a notification if they detect an event, helping clients get ahead of any problems that could become catastrophic if left undetected.

Notion’s 3-part system:

Sensors

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

Bridge

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.

Offer your clients peace of mind

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 help proactively prevent water damage, break-ins, fires and more.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Important: Clients must agree to the terms and conditions of the program, including the sharing of their data with Nationwide.
