Evrythng is a U.S based IoT platform that gives physical objects an online identity. This facilitates the exchange of data in real-time throughout a product’s lifecycle, thus allowing consumers to control household appliances and personal possessions remotely in addition to enabling insurers to lower loss ratios for home and property insurance lines. Specifically, Evrythng’s P&C insurance solution is built on a network of pre-integrated devices from smart home partners such as Jasco, iHome, Nest and First Alert. The smart home solution – Evrythg’s Insurance Pilot Kit – can be fully customised, allowing insurers to create and test what works best for them, while saving time and money on implementation.
EVRYTHNG delivers the following benefits to insurance companies:
- Offer smart home solutions that allow consumers to control physical devices remotely.
- Provides IoT technology under their own brand identity.
- Provides usage based home property insurance premiums and reduces loss ratios through preventive sensors and alerts.
The central component in the Evrythng IoT architecture is the Active Digital Identity (ADI). These ADIs are programmable software profiles that generate real-time data and capture everything that happens to, or about, a given product.
Niall Murphy, CEO and Co-founder of EVRYTHNG has encapsulated their philosophy: “In a connected world, connected products can revolutionize the value they can provide. Developing and maintaining bespoke integrations with multiple smart home environments should not be a time-consuming and costly process. EVRYTHNG simplifies this complexity by offering out-of-the-box connectors”.
Ultimately, the ability to monitor and manage appliances and possessions in real time will increase the functionality and lifespan of products whilst lowering the cost of upkeep and replacement. For insurers, the value is clear; preventive cost reduction and self improvement opportunities for the consumers.
