— Self-installed smart home technology and professional monitoring now available for Reliant customers —

As part of Reliant’s focus on providing cutting edge smart home and security innovations to customers across Texas, today the company announced a new relationship with SimpliSafe, maker of award-winning home security systems. The collaboration will provide renters and homeowners in both urban and rural markets with special offers and discounts, enabling them to better protect their most valuable assets: their home and loved ones.

“Providing our customers with the best in home energy tech solutions and ensuring their comfort and safety is something we strive to deliver every day at Reliant,” said Elizabeth Killinger, President of Reliant. “In fact, it’s fundamental to how we power, protect and simplify life for consumers. By teaming up with SimpliSafe, more customers can have peace of mind knowing their home is secure, whether it’s during these uncertain times or beyond.”

For a limited time, Reliant is excited to provide customers with a special offer from SimpliSafe for a free SimpliCam HD security camera and the first two months of interactive monitoring for free with the purchase of a qualified new system.

Now more than ever, consumers are seeking DIY products and services that offer contactless delivery. SimpliSafe’s devices and packages will be made available through a custom online ordering platform for Reliant customers and can be self-installed and set up with ease, regardless of whether users reside in urban, suburban or rural areas, or are renters or homeowners. Additionally, SimpliSafe has launched a dedicated customer service line (888-799-1858) to help Reliant customers determine the configuration that best suits their unique needs.

“We are excited to be teaming up with Reliant, which is not only an industry leader when it comes to retail energy, but like SimpliSafe, has an approach that is both customer-centric and tech-forward,” said Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships at SimpliSafe. “At SimpliSafe, we are committed to our mission of making every home secure, and the partnership with Reliant is helping us deliver just that, making home security even more accessible. The need for peace of mind has never been greater, and together, we’re helping to make that possible.”

Reliant’s collaboration with SimpliSafe is the latest example of how the electricity company has aligned with other innovative businesses focused on tech-driven solutions to meet customers’ unique lifestyles. Last year, Reliant announced a strategic relationship with Google to launch personal voice commands and visual interfaces for its Google Home Hub to help customers better manage energy usage. More recently, the company partnered with InComm to introduce a new, convenient cash payment method by providing personalized barcodes to residential customers.
