Making Your Home a Safe Haven this Spring is Simple

Whether you’re in the market for a new home or focusing on home improvement projects, there’s a lot to look forward to this spring. However, amidst all the excitement, it’s important not to lose sight of the importance of home protection.

So you’re looking to buy a house…
Thinking about your protection may not be top of mind when buying a home, but it should be. Your home is your haven after all! Two items that should be at the top of your to-do list after you move in? Investing in smart home security and setting up home insurance.

Smart home security can help prevent damages like break-ins, fires, and water damage, and insurance can help protect you in the event that they happen anyway. In fact, award-winning smart home security company, SimpliSafe, and Farmers Insurance® recently announced a collaboration that brings these benefits together.

Beginning April 1, Farmers® customers in Alabama who bind a new Smart Plan Home policy between April 1, 2021 and May 31, 2021 will be qualified to receive a custom 7-piece home security system from SimpliSafe, provided with their homeowners insurance policy at no extra charge. The effort aims to help insured homeowners protect their homes against theft, fire and water damage, while also providing them with potential savings on their homeowners insurance policies.

Or maybe you’re making your old home new again…
Tackling some new projects at home this spring? It’s also a great time to revisit how you’re protecting your home and loved ones.

Whole home protection, like SimpliSafe, defends against risks we often see during the spring. April showers bring May flowers, but they can also bring water damage from leaking gutters. With smart water sensors and a professional monitoring plan from SimpliSafe, you can receive alerts directly to your phone whenever they come in contact with water as low as the width of a credit card. Entry sensors can help ensure that you’re not exposing your home by cracking open windows to let in a fresh breeze. These components are incredibly easy to install yourself in just about 30 minutes – no tools required. No matter if you’re a DIY guru or novice, installing a smart home security system can – and should – be on your to-do list this spring.

Having your space properly protected will allow you to rest easy, forget about the “what ifs” and enjoy the place you call home. To learn more about the SimpliSafe and Farmers® collaboration, visit To learn more about SimpliSafe’s full product suite, visit
