Hiro and abode collaborate for smarter insurance

By Patrick Brusnahan

Smart home technology firm abode has partnered with insurtech Hiro to combine smart home security technology with specialist smart home insurance.

Hiro customers will have access to a starter package and discounts on the abode range. In addition, abode will help promote the Hiro partnership by offering subscribers a sign-up offer when taking insurance through the Hiro app.

Furthermore, Hiro helps is members discover the smartest ways to protect their homes. It works closely with smart tech manufacturers to certify how effective their devices are at preventing common problems.

Working together with Hiro, abode UK customers can gain discounts, monthly rolling contracts and no extra fees. Hiro also gives further discounts for any newly added devices that can help protect it, such as the abode water leak sensor.

“We’re delighted to be teaming up with Hiro. Abode is a top choice for customers looking to secure their home and, quite frankly, home insurance doesn’t get any smarter. With the growth in demand for smart home automation, the partnership with Hiro will give those who want to protect their homes with the latest technology a route to benefit from discounts on their home and contents insurance,” said Darren Gamage, UK CEO for abode UK.

“At Hiro, we want to make sure we protect what makes our customers unique; the things that money can’t buy. For that to work, a rock-solid security system is a great place to start. Abode’s unique, flexible and accessible approach to securing people’s homes is an ideal match for Hiro members, and we’re incredibly excited about this partnership,” added Dan Knight, CTO & co-founder of Hiro.

London-based start-up Hero Labs launched an insurtech for home insurance, Hiro, in April 2020.

Hiro is an insurance challenger brand that rewards customers with insurance discounts for investing in smart technology that protects their homes.

Policyholders can gain discounts of up to 25% with smart devices they already own. In addition, they can purchase more technology from a discounted in-app marketplace to further protect their homes.

By installing technology such as cameras, video doorbells, and smart leak detectors, homeowners and renters can gain cheaper insurance premiums.
