Hippo Insurance Services will offer home insurance products in North Carolina and is teaming up with Ring to proactively help protect homes against water damage, fire and break-ins.

New customers who opt-in to receive the complimentary alarm security kit from Ring receive a smart home discount on their insurance premium with Hippo. The smart home kit includes the Ring Alarm 5-piece kit (second generation), Ring Indoor Cam, Echo Dot (fourth generation), flood & freeze sensor, and smoke & CO sensor.

“By partnering with Ring, we can help more homeowners prevent small issues from becoming big problems and take a proactive approach to home protection," said Hippo CEO Rick McCathron.

With the addition of North Carolina, Hippo products reach 92% of the U.S. population in 39 states. Residents of the Tar Heel state can now access Hippo’s full protection offering, which includes modern home insurance coverage, Hippo Home Care, and the company-provided smart home devices from Ring.
