I'm a Belair Direct home insurance customer, and I didn't get any such email. Any other details? Hard to see how it's going to be possible to take advantage of this offer it only went to a few customers selected by unknown criteria.

But I'm not sure I'd want to anyway. Their sensor requires a $5/month monitoring fee (after your free year expires), and doesn't seem to offer any local non-subscription capability, nor does it integrate with any home automation systems.

Update: Ok, studying the design a bit, I can see why they probably aren't offering it everywhere. It uses cellular service to phone home, so it will only work in areas where the company has contracted for local cellular service. It also relies on a particular design of water meter, so wouldn't be compatible with every region. Another problem is that it needs an AC plugin if you don't want to rely on short-term battery power. Around here the water meters are installed in a box in the lawn near the street, so running AC power is not an option.

They ship fast, mine is online already. If you configure the app using your phone, you can log in to the website on a computer and you see additional home information that can be entered. You can put your actual water and sewage rates to se real-time consumption cost.

I'm not bothered about the cost because it is free at the moment. Even at $5/month there after, there could be an option after this trial that Belair will offer discounts on homes that have the device installed. Northbridge Insurance already offers a $150 discount for homes which covers the yearly monitoring cost.
