British smart home insurance provider Neos has joined global insurance think tank IoT Insurance Observatory.
IoT Insurance Observatory brings together executives from more than 50 insurance groups to discuss the potential of Internet-of-Things technology and trends on the industry as well as the challenges they pose to insurance businesses. The European observatory has aggregated more than 30 members, including insurers, reinsurers and tech players, while the North American observatory has over 20 members – including seven of the top 15 P&C US insurance groups.
Neos will be participating in the IoT Insurance Observatory’s first conferences, taking place in Milan, Italy on September 17 and in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 23.

“We’re really excited to join the IoT Insurance Observatory community alongside some prestigious players in the insurance industry,’’ said Matt Poll, founder and chief executive officer of Neos. “Smart home technology is one of the biggest opportunities when it comes to leveraging IoT data within insurance, and we want to make sure Neos is at the forefront of that discussion.”
“The Observatory has just published a whitepaper which rationalises the opportunity of smart home insurance for the insurance sector and customers,” said Matteo Carbone, founder and director of IoT Insurance Observatory. “I’m honoured to have Neos onboard at the Observatory and I’m sure they will be a terrific contributor with their vast experience and understanding of the current challenges and future scenarios when it comes to connected insurance.”
