The connected smart home is a natural evolution

Using a SmartPlug in your Verisure system is only one way to get your home connected

The number of connected devices is growing fast. Growth in residential broadband and smartphone use across Europe paves the way for the next step in the connected evolution: getting everything, everywhere, online. Wireless technology is embedded in all kinds of products that keep people in touch with their home, family and what matters most. This evolution is changing how people live their lives. Consumers are ready and the infrastructure is in place. Security is an integral part of the smart home – and offers exciting opportunities for Verisure. Professionally monitored intrusion and fire alarms will continue to be our core business. At the same time, we’ll expand our reach by being pioneers and setting standards for the connected smart home.

By inviting partners from complementary segments such as healthcare, insurance, energy and telco to join the Verisure platform, we create a multifaceted and attractive smart home offer. For consumers, this delivers a coherent offer that combines a range of professional smart home services presented through a straightforward and seamless interface on their mobile phones, tablets and computers.

Our market

Expansion in Europe

Verisure Securitas Direct is a growth company and at this point present in 14 countries with 9,000 employees serving a total of 2 million customers. The company is number one in Europe and growing fast in South America. The European market consists of about 210 million households and is relatively underpenetrated. As new technology changes the way we do business and reshapes customer behaviour, we face a major market change. Increased flexibility and a broader range of services are forging a more attractive and relevant offering. This will strengthen our customer relationships and see the emergence of new customer categories.
