Meeting Cocoon customers

Cocoon has now officially launched! We celebrated in London and were really pleased to welcome some of our early customers and supporters to the party, read all about it here.

Andrew, a local from our home city of Leeds, tweeted us to say he’d bought a Cocoon and would love to pick it up in person. We jumped at the opportunity and a few days later Andrew came to visit us. Robert showed him around and introduced him to the team who really enjoyed meeting a customer. It really brings to life why we do this – home security should be smart, simple and easy to use so everyone can feel safe!

Mobile app updates

We believe that home security should be incredibly simple to use, and a great mobile experience is a bit part of that.

Our team recently launched updates for iOS and Android with new features, and a major upgrade of geo-location (the technology to allow your Cocoon to automatically set and unset when you’re home and away). We’re most excited about the new capability to see what your Cocoon is hearing through the live Subsound® screen. Find out more about the updates here.

Words from our CEO

“This partnership helps us to reward those who take a smarter approach to protect their home and loved ones”, said Sanjay Parekh, Cocoon’s CEO. “Cocoon offers a smart, effortless  home security technology helping everyone secure their home. Cocoon’s unique Subsound® technology, using machine learning and sound wave detection, makes it incredibly simple for homeowners and renters to protect a whole home in minutes. There’s no need for professional installation, and can all be controlled through their smartphone.

“Working together, Zurich and Cocoon offer the kind of assurance and protection needed for increasingly connected homes. It puts people in control of their home security and means we can all feel safe while going about our daily lives. We’re excited to be working with one of the most trusted names in home insurance to reimagine  home security.”

How it works

By purchasing a Cocoon to better protect their home, new Zurich UK customers will receive a 10% discount on Zurich’s home insurance (Simply speak to your insurance broker and quote your Cocoon serial number). When bought at the same time there will be an exclusive discount of £50 for Zurich customers who purchase a Cocoon. (Terms and Conditions apply)

Working in a traditional industry, Zurich is embracing the move towards a connected home and the benefits it can bring customers. The control Cocoon offers customers in their home security, and the strong security background of Cocoon’s founding team, makes this partnership a great fit for Zurich’s mission: helping customers to understand and protect themselves from risk.

“This is an exciting time to be partnering with such a pioneering business”, commented Helen Jales, Head of Innovation at Zurich.

With 76% of Brits admitting to ignoring burglar alarms (source) solutions like Cocoon, that put homeowners in control, should not only mean greater peace of mind but also reduced insurance premiums. This partnership is the beginning of a movement towards rewarding the customer for better protecting their home.
