A recent WSJ front page article detailed how several insurance companies are attempting to assess and settle their home insurance claims using technology such as drone photography and videography instead of sending a trained adjuster to inspect the damage. Some companies have even provided insureds with smartphone apps encouraging the to take video of their home damage to submit directly to the claims department, bypassing the traditional field claims adjuster.

Through it results in quicker claims adjusting, some statistics show a propensity to low-ball claims after actual repair bills arrived. A 2017 survey conducted by J.D. Power showed that policyholders older than 53 were less satisfied with the impersonal high tech claims methods.
