Digital platforms must easily add sensors like Leakebit from Homeserve.
In addition to initiating emergency repairs platforms should be able to add the data to all other sensors and internal/external data sources for a more complete picture of individual customers and the whole sector.
Prevention better than cure but quick detection and alarm via HomeServe Leakbot reduces adverse impact of water leakage for customer and minimises water claims costs
Legal & General general insurance chief executive Cheryl Agius said: “Anyone who has experienced a leak of water in their home from a burst pipe or leaking radiator knows just how devastating the damage can be. By raising awareness of the risks posed by the escape of water in the home and offering a solution to detect any leakage, we hope to be able to help our customers minimise their potential exposure to water damage.”
