Hippo partners with SimpliSafe

Hippo and SimpliSafe announced a partnership that will provide homeowners access to more options when it comes to protecting their homes. The partnership will expand the suite of services available within Hippo’s smart home program to include professionally monitored devices from SimpliSafe, which protects more than 3 million people today.

New Hippo customers in select states who enroll in its smart home program will now be eligible to receive a professionally monitored home alarm system from SimpliSafe, provided completely complimentary with their homeowners’ policy. The 7-piece SimpliSafe home security system “tailored” for Hippo customers will include a SimpliCam HD camera, two water sensors, smoke detector, window or door entry sensor, keypad and base station. As part of the offer, eligible customers will also receive two free months of 24/7 interactive monitoring and a “meaningful discount” on their annual home insurance premium. After the initial two month period, customers in the program will pay for professional monitoring, which starts at $14.99 per month.

“We are excited to partner with Hippo and give their customers not only a better home insurance offering, but also enhanced peace of mind by providing them access to professional monitoring that allows for early detection – and in some cases, prevention – of issues before they cause significant damage and become major insurance claims. This partnership is yet another way that we’re delivering on our mission to make every home secure.” – Matt Wolf, Director of Partnerships at SimpliSafe.

“The growth of our smart home program has revealed that customers want more flexibility and options when it comes to protecting their home. Our partnership with SimpliSafe, an innovative leader in home security and whole home protection, allows us to introduce a new caliber of smart home devices for our customers, with the goal of expanding to even more states to ensure that a deeper level of proactive protection is available to those who want it.” – Yuval Harry, VP of Partnerships at Hippo.

Bottom Line: Progressive comes to mind.
