Roost, a company that makes smart-home devices like water-leak sensors and internet connected batteries, is trying to launch a Home Telematics Consortium of insurers to aggregate and analyze smart-device data for insurance use.

The company teamed up with Willis Towers Watson on the effort.

Willis will then run analytics on the data to identify opportunities for insurance product enhancement.
