What is Alert?

Alert is an innovative prevention program available to clients who insure their homes with us.

Alert comes with a free water and freeze detector. If the unexpected happens, you'll get an alert on your smartphone, meaning you can act fast and limit the damage caused by water and freezing.

You can also buy additional detectors directly through the app at a preferred rate!

How it works

Download the Desjardins Insurance Home-Auto app

The app is free and available for iPhone and Android smartphones. You will find the Alert program in the Prevention section.

No data plan is required.

Order and sync your free detector

Open the app on your smartphone to order your detector under the Alert section. Once you receive your detector, follow the installation steps. It's fast and easy!

The detector requires an at-home Wi-Fi connection.

Get alerts on your smartphone

If water or a risk of freezing is detected, you'll be notified immediately on your smartphone.
