Meet the Hedge Packages

Our Prevent and Protect Packages are your “foundation”: you must choose one before adding on devices to customize your Hedge system. Both packages help you keep an eye on your home when you’re not there and proactively protect against theft, fire, and water damage.

24/7 Issue Escalation

Text, call, and emergency contact escalations in the event of water accumulation or your smoke or carbon monoxide detector going off add an extra layer of protection (at no additional cost!).

24/7 Issue Escalation

VIA TEXT, CALL, AND EMERGENCY CONTACT

How’s this for peace of mind? Your Hedge devices send you an immediate notification if it detects abnormal or unexpected activity. And for certain “high-priority” events, our 24/7 escalation process will activate.

This means a series of additional notifications, texts, and calls will be made to you and other users on your account — followed by your emergency contact — until you open the Hedge App, signaling you’ve received the communication.

What Else Makes Hedge Different?

LET’S TALK ABOUT WATER

With water flowing through so many areas of the home — bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room, and basement — it’s no surprise that water damage is the most common type of homeowners insurance claim.

Even if you haven’t experienced water damage yourself, you likely know somebody who has and understand how disruptive and upsetting it can be. How surprising, then, that most home systems fail to acknowledge water-related issues!

Hedge is different. Included in all Hedge packages are three Leak Sensors that address the very real potential for water damage head-on: by alerting you to even a drop of water accumulation (as little as .5mm) plus shifts in humidity and temperature outside your specified range, which could indicate a water-related problem like freezing pipes or mold.

The Hedge App

Connecting You To Your Devices

Your Hedge devices alert you to potential issues via an instant Hedge App notification. To use Hedge, you’ll need a smartphone capable of downloading our app and Wi-Fi in the home you’d like to monitor.

What Happens If My Phone Is Off Or I’m Not Near It?

Enter: 24/7 Issue Escalations! We’ve thought about that too. We understand that you might not always be available to receive a Hedge App notification on your phone. That’s why Hedge includes a 24/7 issue escalation process — at no additional cost or monthly fee.

In the event of “high-priority” events — your smoke or carbon monoxide detector going off, or water accumulation — the escalation process will activate, and a series of additional notifications, texts, and calls will be made to you and other users on your account, followed by your emergency contact. The escalation process deactivates when you open your Hedge App, signaling you’re aware of the potentially problematic event.
