About this app

Whether you’re around the corner or across the country, you’ll breathe easy knowing you’ve proactively protected your home with Hedge: an easy-to-use and affordable home monitoring and security system from American Family Insurance. Hedge features a variety of smart devices, 24/7 alerts and escalations, and a mobile app that ties it all together.

The Hedge App automatically “arms” your system when you leave home, meaning you’ll receive an immediate notification directly to your smartphone if your devices detect unusual and potentially problematic activity, like unexpected motion or water accumulation. Open the app and access your SmartCam’s live feed or quickly review recorded video clips to determine whether you need to take action and restore the safety and security of your home.

Your Hedge devices will alert you to the following via the Hedge App:

● Doors and windows being opened
● Motion and noise
● Water accumulation
● A shift in humidity/temperature outside your set range
● Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors sounding*

*While SmartCams can’t detect smoke or carbon monoxide, they can listen for the 3100Hz frequency emitted by standard detectors and alert you if there’s an issue.

The Hedge App also brings you:
● An “auto-arm” feature that automatically activates your system when you leave home
● Instant alerts when your devices detect something unusual
● Crystal-clear SmartCam live stream and recorded clips (1080p HD)
● Temperature and humidity range setting (temperature/humidity outside the set range will trigger your Leak Sensor to send you a notification via the app) ● In-app Hedge Support Team chat function
● Device battery life indicator
● Easy instructions to set up your devices

Got the startup package for $9 so my insurance rate would go down. The system is decent for basic monitoring, but I wouldn't call it very intuitive, nor is it anywhere near as advanced as similar systems at the same price point if you purchase additional sensors. It would be nice to have Google Home/Assistant integration so I could use it with the rest of my smart home devices. The app has improved over the past months, so I added stars to reflect that.

We installed this and about a week later had a very small sewer backup. We would have never known this was happening this fast if it wasn't for the water detection sensors! Instead of this turning into a big messy problem that would probably involve a homeowner's claim and increased premiums we were able to stop more water from making it worse and correct the issue! Everything about the hardware, the app, and the customer service has been top-notch! Highly recommend!

I have cheap $40 cameras that work better than the camera included in the intro kit. I've turned it up to high sensitivity and then gone in front of it and jumped up and down waving my arms and I get no alerts. But what I do get is that it's too cold on one of my moisture sensors. Great. I know it's cold in the garage - but if someone were to break into it, I'd want to know that more than the weather conditions of my garage. AmFam is a great insurance company, but they should sever ties to the Hedge Protect platform before it taints their good reputation.
