Canary makes insurance smarter and more affordable. We've partnered with two of the top insurance providers in the US to unlock savings for policyholders who own and use Canary.
Simply for using Canary in you home, you may be eligible for a discount on your insurance premium. Discounts vary in amount by state and by level of insurance coverage. The discount is usually given in the form of a percentage off the annual premium amount which the policyholder pays to their insurer (e.g., 7% off of $150/year premium for a New York City renter in the Lower East Side neighborhood).
Eligibility can be determined by contacting the insurer directly (through the agent or customer service hotline). Insurance discounts may not be limited to Canary's insurance partners – users who have other providers should contact them to see if discounts are available.
Eligibility information (summarized in the table below) can be accessed at https://canary.is/insurance/.
