Sky Protect Smart Home insurance has been designed to combine smart home tech and home insurance.

It includes £250 worth* of smart tech at no extra cost, making you feel connected, protected and insured every day. You’ll get home emergency, legal assistance and cyber assistance cover included as standard too.

If getting £250 worth* of smart tech and all that insurance cover isn’t enough, you can also save on Sky Protect Smart Home Insurance if you buy through us.

That’s because we’re offering our members £75 cashback** when they buy a Sky Protect Smart Home Insurance buildings & contents insurance policy (£60* with a contents only policy).

You can get a quote in around 60 seconds by entering your postcode. The cost of your home insurance policy is individual to you and will depend on such things as your address and location of your home, the property type and size and the type of cover.

If you’re an existing Sky customer, you'll save £120 over 24 months* with Sky Protect Smart Home Insurance.

Sky Protect Home

Smart tech bundle

Only Sky Protect Smart Home Insurance comes with smart tech worth £250*.

The included video doorbell will let you see who’s at your door — and even chat with them — from anywhere. Simple to set up, it offers streaming 24/7.

An indoor camera will be your ultimate house sitter when you’re not there, keeping an eye out wherever you place it.

With motion and contact sensors, you’ll also know if something moves or opens when it shouldn’t, while the leak sensors will be looking out for unwanted water.

You’ll get alerts on your phone — but only when there’s something you should know about — helping you spot little problems before they become big ones.

With the Sky Protect app, you can look in on your home any time you like. Only you can do it, so you’re in complete control.

Let’s take a closer look at the tech you’ll receive with your Sky Protect Smart Home Insurance.

Video doorbell

With high-definition video, you can see who’s at your door. You’ll be able to speak to them too with the built-in speaker and mic.

Your battery powered doorbell is easy to fit and connect to the Sky Protect app, with no electrician needed.

You can choose from a selection of doorbell sounds and adjust the volume straight from the app.

When it comes to seeing who’s at your door, you can live stream and record high-definition colour video, even at night. Video is securely stored in the cloud for 30 days to share or download.

Sky Protect Tech Bundle

Indoor camera

This night vision camera has a built-in speaker and mic, as well as movement and noise sensors.

It can see for up to nine metres when the sun’s gone down, so you’re never in the dark, while you’ll be able to hear and talk to anyone in the room.

You’ll get an alert on your phone when your camera senses movement or hears a loud noise and you’ll be able to see what’s happening in real time with a live stream from wherever you are.

It’s easy to install yourself, on a shelf or a wall. Also, if you set the Auto Arm feature, it will automatically turn your camera on when you head out — and off when you return.

Motion & contact sensors

With no wires or drama, the motion & contact sensors are easy to install on your wall, windows and doors.

Contact sensors will send an alert to your phone if your door or window opens, while you’ll also receive an unexpected movement alert if something is detected by the motion sensor.

Like the indoor camera, they also have the Auto Arm feature.

Leak sensors

These sensors could save you money and distress as they can detect even a single drop of water before it becomes a serious flood.

However, they can do more than just that. They sense temperature too and can tell you if a room gets too hot or cold, while they’ll also keep an eye on humidity levels, which can sometimes be a sign of damp or hidden leaks.

Just pop them anywhere you’re worried about water escaping, such as under a sink or bath, or behind your washing machine.

One really smart thing about all this tech is that you can get it up and running in next to no time. All you need is broadband, a smartphone and the Sky Protect app.
Their home insurance is rated five stars by Defaqto and covers buildings & contents or contents only.
