Notion, a Comcast Company, announced an exclusive partnership  in Australia with Honey Insurance, to provide new customers with smart home sensors. In addition to getting a complimentary Smart Home Sensor Kit valued at AU$250 from day one for around-the-clock proactive property monitoring that will help prevent avoidable claims, Honey Insurance customers will also receive 8% off their premium as soon as their sensors are activated, and for each year they remain connected.

Recently launched with the largest ever seed round for an Australian technology startup, Honey Insurance is Australia’s first smart technology insurtech that provides Notion’s Smart Sensors to monitor risk, as well as using satellite data to proactively detect changes to the home – such as the installation of a new pool – and automatically adjusts a customer’s policy to ensure adequate coverage.

“At Honey Insurance we are utilising the best technology and services from around the world to provide Australians with better cover that is fast, simple to understand, intuitive to purchase, and designed for how people live today.” said Richard Joffe, Founder and CEO of Honey Insurance. “Insurance shouldn’t be ‘set and forget’. Thanks to our exclusive partnership with Notion, we are not only able to save our customers money, but also help keep their homes and families safer.”

Notion’s smart home sensors are multifunctional and can monitor for water leaks, the opening of doors and windows, sounding alarms and temperature changes – along with an app to manage it all. The sensors provide an easy DIY approach to smart monitoring, with no professional installation required and can be installed in less than 15 minutes.

“Notion smart sensors are changing the way property owners and insurers monitor risk. In fact, 84% of Notion users didn’t monitor water leaks prior to using Notion,” said Brett Jurgens, Notion’s CEO and Co-Founder. “We’re excited for Honey to bring our DIY solution into Australian homes and businesses as we expand across the globe to help reduce the complexities and risks of property ownership.”

Notion looks forward to expanding into international markets to further support its goal of becoming a requirement to get property insurance by reducing risk with proactive monitoring for home and business owners. When specifically looking at the two major perils in insurance, on average 24% of Notion systems get at least one notification each month for water or fire detection — transforming the way risks are monitored through smart DIY technology and helping customers address issues before they lead to significant damages.
