How is Honey using my smart home sensor data?

The only information that Honey uses is whether or not your smart home devices are active. The active status of your smart home devices ensures that you keep your discount year after year.

Smarter questions you can ask about smart home sensors

  • Why does Honey provide smart home devices with their home insurance policies?

    At Honey we believe that protecting your home starts before an accident even occurs.

    Many at-home accidents such as water leaks, fires and break-ins can be avoided by using the latest smart home technology. Avoiding these accidents can save you money and the inconvenience of needing your home fixed and contents replaced because something went wrong.

  • How does the smart discount work?

    Once received, simply keep your sensors activated to keep the discount, year after year. If you don’t activate your sensors within 14 days, you may become ineligible for your Honey discount. But don’t worry, Honey will keep you in the loop regarding if and when your sensors are active, and at what date you’ll become ineligible if your sensors remain inactive.

  • Are the sensors made by Honey?

    Your smart home system has been developed by our (really) smart friends at Notion. Notion is a leading technology partner for smart property monitoring, supporting proactive maintenance, and providing value-add smart technology for their customers. Powered by multifunctional sensors and an app, the Notion System delivers notifications to a property owner – empowering proactive self-monitoring to help de-risk a property.

    We’ve vetted them, and we’re not the first. But we are the first in Australia to tap into this leading partner for smart property monitoring.

  • Is smart home sensor data used in the processing of claims?

    No smart home sensor data is used in the processing of claims. The sensors are there to help alert you to potential mishaps before they escalate. That’s the beauty of the sensors, they’re able to let you know about door openings, water leaks, and smoke alarms, to help de-risk your home in order for you to claim less. They’re there for your safety, savings and peace of mind.

  • Can I get sensors with my contents insurance?

    Right now, sensors are only eligible for those who take out a Home & Contents or Home policy. We'll be sure to let you know if we extend the addition of sensors to contents and landlord policies.
