Root, Owlcam Partner for Insurance Claim Process
Aug. 28, 2019—Root Insurance has announced a partnership and pilot program with Owlcam that will utilize Owlcam’s video security and safety system to streamline insurance claims.
During the pilot program, select Root customers are testing how Owlcam services can impact driving safety and car security while simultaneously simplifying the claims process. The results could help inform future Root discounts for consumers who use Owlcam. Additionally, Owlcam’s features allow testers to quickly send video to Root to support any claims.
When a crash or break-in is detected in a vehicle with Owlcam, a video clip is instantly sent to the driver’s smartphone. Within the Owlcam app, customers can live view footage captured by the camera to see what is happening in real-time from anywhere. The video proof can immediately be shared with Root as well as police arriving on the scene. Owlcam also offers 911 Assist, a live operator emergency call response service, as part of its service plan.
