The Travelers Companies, Inc. has announced a major new tie-up with technology giant Amazon. Under the new partnership, the insurer will offer smart home kits as well as insurance and risk management information via what it claims to be the “insurance industry’s first digital storefront” at Amazon.com/Travelers.
Travelers customers in dedicated US states will have access to the smart home kits at discounted prices, in an effort to protect homeowners from some of the most common causes of loss. The kits include: security cameras, water sensors, motion detectors, a wireless smart home hub that connects a wide range of smart devices and an Amazon Echo Dot. Furthermore, eligible Travelers home insurance customers will get a discount on their policy with the purchase of a smart home kit.
“This is an exciting example of Travelers executing on our innovation agenda to be the undeniable choice for the customer and an indispensable partner for our agents and brokers,” said Alan Schnitzer, chairman and chief executive officer at Travelers. “It advances our priorities of extending our lead in risk expertise and providing great experiences for our customers, agents and brokers.”
