State Farm Ups Ante on Connected Home Products
State Farm has partnered with Canary, providers of home security applications, to increase its presence in the home monitoring space. Home monitoring and control devices are intended to enable customers to manage their homes using a computer or connected device.
State Farm customers will receive offers to purchase Canary products and may qualify for discounts on homeowner and renters’ insurance, and can take advantage of the State Farm Home Protection and Automation sites, which include product offers and decision-making tools.
The news follows Liberty Mutual and American Family making similar inroads last month with the Nest product.
"At State Farm, we help to protect families and individuals from the unexpected," said Dar Hakimi, State Farm innovation director. "By expanding our relationships with connected home solution providers, we are enabling customers to protect their family with diverse solutions that meet their unique needs."
Canary is a connected home monitoring platform that uses wide-angle HD monitoring, high-quality audio, motion detection, and temperature, humidity and air quality readings.
"We believe anyone should be able to go anywhere, do anything, and still know what's happening at home," said Adam Sager, co-founder and CEO of Canary. "We created a new approach to home security by making Canary simple, intelligent, and designed for renters and homeowners alike."
