May 8, 2014— GOLDEN, Colo. and SEATTLE, Wash.— HomeAdvisor and WallyHome, the first connected home product powered by SNUPI Technologies, today announced a partnership to launch Wally Concierge Service powered by HomeAdvisor. The new partnership marries WallyHome’s sensor system with HomeAdvisor’s network of 80,000 screened and customer-rated home improvement professionals to ensure that when WallyHome detects a problem they have immediate access to professional help.
The WallyHome system pairs a Hub with wireless sensors, placed near appliances or in hazard-prone spaces, to create a seamlessly connected smart home platform. With the web and mobile app dashboards, users receive detailed information about their home including temperature and humidity readings, along with water leak alerts. With this new partnership, homeowners with the WallyHome system can use the Wally Concierge Service powered by HomeAdvisor to access immediate help from a professional in HomeAdvisor’s network of 80,000 screened and customer-rated home professionals.
“The online dashboard is a source of valuable information for homeowners, giving them intelligent insight into their homes,” explained Jacquelyn Jaech, vice president of marketing and sales at SNUPI Technologies. “Armed with this information, consumers now have the added benefit to be proactive in seeking professional help when they need it. Given their experience and reputation in the industry, HomeAdvisor was the natural choice for providing this resource to our customers.”
“WallyHome offers homeowners a smart solution to protect their home from potentially expensive damage,” said Adam Burrows, senior vice president of business and corporate development for HomeAdvisor. “Thanks to the HomeAdvisor partnership, homeowners using the WallyHome system get the added benefit of knowing that HomeAdvisor’s network of 80,000 screened and customer-rated professionals is just a phone call away.”
