SSE Airtricity and PhoneWatch bring additional home security to customers

Sep 16, 2021

SSE Airtricity has moved to help its customers make their homes more secure through an exclusive partnership with PhoneWatch. The agreement between both companies will allow SSE Airtricity customers to avail of a new offer to protect their homes with Ireland’s most trusted alarm and 24/7 monitoring.

In 2020, there were almost 10,500 burglaries across Ireland – equivalent to a reported burglary taking place every 48 minutes. Customers of SSE Airtricity, Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy*, can now benefit from additional security in their home with PhoneWatch’s state of the art security systems with 24/7 monitoring and an average response time to an alarm activation of just 12 seconds.

The new partnership gives customers a full security system installed for just €75, reduced from the standard price of €199. As smart technology and features become more and more common in homes across Ireland, security systems and tech have evolved too and can fully integrate smart solutions for modern living.

The PhoneWatch home safety system includes: motion sensors with built-in cameras, a smoke alarm featuring always-on response 24/7, a panic alarm for instant emergency services dispatch, contact sensors for doors to detect when they are opened, a smartphone app enabling you to arm/disarm your system remotely and to check the status of your system, a PhoneWatch bellbox fixed to an external wall of the home and personalised key tags for ease of use. All alarm components are wireless, so installation is quick easy and hassle free. There is no need for a landline.

SSE Airtricity Head of Marketing and CRM Victoria Groom said: “At SSE Airtricity we take safety seriously and understand the importance of feeling safe and secure in your home. We’re delighted to team up with PhoneWatch and give customers easy and affordable access to 24/7 monitoring from PhoneWatch for added peace of mind and sense of security every time they leave their home.
