SimpliSafe's smart home technology and professional monitoring can help with the early detection of theft and water damage issues before they become major insurance claims.
FREMONT, CA: SimpliSafe, maker of award-winning home security systems, and Farmers Insurance, one of the nation's leading multi-line insurer groups, announced a collaboration that will help make preventative smart home protection available to homeowners in Ohio, Iowa, and Alabama. The pilot effort aims to help insured homeowners protect their homes in those three states against theft, fire, and water damage while also providing them with potential savings on their homeowners' insurance policies.
For a limited time, Farmers customers in the three participating states who bind a new Smart Plan Home policy between April 1, 2021, and May 31, 2021, will be qualified to receive an included custom 7-piece home security system from SimpliSafe, provided with their homeowners' insurance policy at no extra charge. The system will consist of critical components, including the SimpliCam HD camera and both water and motion sensors, as well as one month of SimpliSafe's most comprehensive 24/7 professional monitoring.
"At Farmers, our determination to adopt and offer the latest technology to benefit customers continues to grow," said Carolyn Wald, head of innovation integration at Farmers Insurance. "With SimpliSafe, we saw an opportunity to offer home security and monitoring services to customers when they are purchasing homeowners insurance, a time when home safety and security is likely to be top of mind.
SimpliSafe's award-winning smart home technology and professional monitoring can help with the early detection of theft and water damage issues before they become major insurance claims, saving homeowners unexpected costs down the line.
Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships at SimpliSafe, echoed these sentiments, stating, "We are excited to work with Farmers on this smart home insurance program to help customers spot and address potential hazards early on. We're aligned in our commitment to providing homeowners with flexible and affordable options and are eager to see how we can deliver on making home the safest and best place on Earth."
