What is the smart home program?

This program is a new, innovative way to help keep your home safe from water damage, break-ins, fires and more with support from the Notion Smart Home Monitoring System. When you add this program to your policy, you get:

  • A discount on your property insurance — average savings of $50 on homeowners insurance1
  • Nearly 50% off the price of the Notion kit
  • An additional layer of protection for your home
  • The potential for less damage with early detection

How the smart home program works

Water damage is the source of most insurance claims — almost 30%, in fact. And the average cost of these claims is $11,000.2

This makes the Notion system all the more helpful. All you have to do is place Notion's sensors in the right spots — near doors, windows, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and water sources (e.g., toilets, air conditioners, sinks and pipes). Once installed, the sensors will watch for unusual activity, making your home safer and helping you get ahead of any problems that would otherwise become more catastrophic and costly later.

There are three parts to the Notion Smart Home Monitoring System:
house icon
Sensors

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

wifi icon
Bridge

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

cell phone icon
App

A Notion app provides alerts and allows you to manage your system from anywhere.
