ADT Teams With Smart Home Insurance Provider Hippo
The partnership offers ADT’s monitoring and installation services to new Hippo customers and extends home insurance discounts to ADT customers.
BOCA RATON, Fla. — ADT (NYSE: ADT) announces a partnership with Hippo, a home insurance group with operations in 32 states.
The alignment of the two companies’ services — ADT’s connected protection system with professional smart home monitoring and Hippo’s digitally native home insurance policies — offers homeowners options to help save on their homeowners’ insurance and offer better protection for their life, property, family and assets, according to the announcement.
Along with providing access to smart devices, Hippo’s program offers customers premium discounts on their home insurance policies. Smart devices are a cornerstone of the company’s protective home insurance platform that includes homeowner education, home maintenance and proactive alerts enabled by AI and data, according to the announcement.
In the coming months, new Hippo customers in select states who enroll in its smart home program will be offered free installation of an ADT smart home security system and a range of smart devices with their home insurance policy and will be eligible for Hippo smart home discounts.
“ADT shares our vision for utilizing smart home technologies to create safer, better futures for homeowners,” says Dave Wechsler, vice president of growth initiatives at Hippo. “ADT expands the family of smart home devices to include more ways for homeowners to have the information and tools to be safer homeowners. Partners like ADT deliver on both the trust and technology that takes our smart home program to the next level.”
“Through the turnkey, professionally installed smart home monitoring we are offering to Hippo customers, we are expanding our reach in meaningful ways that will grow our business,” says Jeff Barnes, director, affinity partnerships at ADT.
In select states, ADT’s existing customers may be eligible to receive smart home discounts on home insurance premiums offered through Hippo Insurance Services. Customers new to both ADT and Hippo can receive ADT’s most advanced smart home security system complete with intrusion, life safety and water intrusion monitoring devices, a video doorbell camera, and two months of ADT professional monitoring, rolling out later this year.
ADT smart home installation professionals can also help connect the customers’ existing, compatible smart home devices to create a seamless and convenient smart home security customer experience. Hippo customers with ADT professional monitoring services may also receive a discount on their homeowners’ insurance premiums.
