American National Insurance Company will deploy sensors from Roost to improve claim cost and enhance customer engagement.

Members with specific risk characteristics will be offered the award-winning Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector, designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. The detector can be located in places around the home most prone to water leaks, such as under kitchen sinks, hot water heaters, toilets and various appliances. It then delivers smartphone alerts via the Roost app to help minimize water damage and loss.

JD Johnson, Executive Vice President, Corporate Business Process Officer, and CIO at American National says, “At American National, we aim to provide our policyholders with value and trusted solutions and this relationship with Roost accomplishes just that.” Johnson continued to share, “We are very happy to announce this strategic partnership with Roost to deliver their smart sensors to our policyholders.”

Along with the new partnership, American National also plan to strengthen its engagement with insureds through an American National branded mobile app, enhanced with severe weather alerts from IBM/The Weather Company.
