TotalProtect Partners with Nest to Bring New Safety Solutions to Home Warranty Customers

New TotalProtect Home Warranty customers now eligible to receive Nest products in limited-time promotion

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--From connected thermostats that learn your schedule to help lower energy costs, to washing machines that send you a text message when the laundry is done, our homes and our lives continue to become more and more connected. To help homeowners create a simple, more connected home, TotalProtect has partnered with Nest to offer a Nest ProtectTM smoke and carbon monoxide alarm at no charge with the purchase of a TotalProtect Combo home warranty plan.

As one of the nation's leading providers of Home Service and Home Warranty products, TotalProtect has seen a sharp increase in the number of connected products entering the home. Independent research firms like Acquity Group agree. Based on their 2014 survey, 70 percent of consumers will have a connected thermostat, and more than 60 percent will own a connected security system within the next five years.

"Nest Protect provides a great opportunity for TotalProtect to extend our core mission - bringing peace of mind to homeowners by protecting the things in the home that matter most," said Sandi Finn, president of TotalProtect Home Warranty. "In the same way that Nest Protect safeguards against the dangers of smoke and carbon monoxide, a TotalProtect Home Warranty protects against the financial threats associated with major systems or appliances in the home breaking down."

Every year, thousands of home accidents, including fire and carbon monoxide poisoning, are preventable. Nest Protect speaks up when there's a problem, can be hushed from a phone, and will even message the homeowner's phone in case they're not home.

"TotalProtect is a leader in home services and protection," said Ben Bixby, head of energy and enterprise, Nest. "Like Nest, they are focused on protecting people's most important asset - their home - and now, by working together, we can provide both companies' products to customers in one great offer."

TotalProtect's promotion is valid through August 31, 2015. More details can be found at
