SimpliSafe and Farmers to provide smart home security systems

Provider of home security solutions SimpliSafe has partnered with Farmers to 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.

SimpliSafe’s smart home technology and professional monitoring can help with early detection of theft and water damage issues. For a limited time beginning today, 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 include key 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. 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.” – Carolyn Wald, head of innovation integration at Farmers Insurance.

“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.” – Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships at SimpliSafe.
