ranging from alerts about intruders, or leaks to maintenance services.

Data generated by consumers can be used by insurers to further enhance
customer engagement, improve processes, and reduce costs. Use of
advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine
learning (ML), Big Data Analytics (BDA) and emerging technologies such
as Blockchain and drones is expected to greatly improve smart home

Some of the challenges faced by insurers include data security, lack of
understanding of outcomes, lack of skills, ambiguity in regulations, and
the exact understanding of impact of technologies. However, the interest
