Homies is a peer-to-peer alarm platform that allows neighbours, friends and family to help eachother out in case of fire or burglary; ultimately aiming to bring down damages incured by the insurer, housing corporation and residents. In order to do so, the platform connects innovative home security solutions as Point (Minut), Roost, and others to prevailing messaging apps as Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger.
The Homies proposition targets an underserved (low-income households) market through social housing corporations. Homies can be funded from the reduced claims of social housing corporations and budget for increased livelihood in neighbourhoods. Homies is planning to scale to 100K households in 2-3 years.
Homies is a joint initiative from Achmea and Accenture.
