Comcast’s concept of Premium Discounts to improve sensor leaks nationwide

Notion, part of the cable TV service provider Comcast, now offers leak detection and security systems that could lead to discounts on insurance premiums for homeowners. The proposal, called Notion PRO, can provide sensors to monitor water leaks, open doors and windows, alarms and temperature changes. Homeowners can upgrade to the service for $ 10 a month, but consumers “may be entitled to save up to 15% of their home insurance premiums,” the company said in a statement.

In March, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. announced that it has teamed up with Notion for the touchscreen program, but said premium rebates will only be around $ 50 a year. 15% seems to be a significant increase in credit for homeowners.

“Risks such as water leaks often remain undetected until they have already caused significant damage. It’s great to work with a partner like Notion who is constantly looking for new ways to help homeowners proactively monitor risks, “said Sarah Jacobs, vice president of product development at Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.

Comcast is joining a growing list of service providers and insurers who now offer sensors to help minimize losses. Chubb, one of the world’s largest insurance companies, earlier this year began offering a 3% discount on premiums for the use of its sensors and up to 8% for the use of plumbing devices.
