SimpliSafe Chosen By Progressive Insurance to Offer Whole-Home Protection

New Offering Provides Consumers with Access to Exceptional Home Protection Products

BOSTON, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SimpliSafe, maker of award-winning home security systems, today announced it has been selected by Progressive Insurance as the official provider for Progressive Home Security by SimpliSafe. This new offering provides comprehensive, whole-home security solutions and potential savings on home insurance policies.

In this first-of-its-kind relationship, Progressive Home Security by SimpliSafe will be featured on the homepage navigation of Progressive’s website. Customers who purchase a new SimpliSafe home security system through the Progressive website will receive a free bonus pack of SimpliSafe hazard sensors, which offers additional layers of protection against fire, water, and extreme temperatures.

SimpliSafe and Progressive share a vision to prevent some of the most common and costly damages to a home — water, freezing and fire. According to 2016 data from the Insurance Information Institute, water damage is the #2 most common cause of insurance loss at 30% of home insurance claims, and fire and lightning is the #3 cause of insurance loss at 27%. These perils are also costly — the average cost over a five-year period (2012-2016) for fire and lightning damage was more than $50,000, while water and freezing damage cost almost $10,000. By protecting homes using SimpliSafe’s smoke, water, and temperature sensors connected to SimpliSafe’s 24/7 professional monitoring service, customers are better prepared to prevent major damages to their homes.

“SimpliSafe’s mission has always been to make every home secure,” said Chad Laurans, Founder and CEO of SimpliSafe. “By teaming up with Progressive, we will help homeowners across the country protect themselves against the most prevalent and preventable damages.”

“We’re always looking for ways to help customers protect their homes from damage, and through the new Progressive Home Security by SimpliSafe program, customers can easily take precautions to monitor their homes from a variety of threats,” said Drew Purcell, Distributed Products Manager at Progressive.

In January 2018, SimpliSafe launched its third-generation hardware line called the all new SimpliSafe. The completely redesigned home security platform offers an array of security sensors, cameras and smart home integrations all at a radically fair price. The all new SimpliSafe has received widespread acclaim, being named “the best home security system” by both The Verge and The Wirecutter, a New York Times company, and receiving Editors’ Choice awards from both PC Magazine and CNET.
