Leroy Merlin Remote Monitoring Alarm

Verizors, which specializes in alarms connected to a remote monitoring center, has announced the launch of a partnership with Leroy Merlin France, which specializes in home improvement and living environments. The two players collaborate to offer remote population monitoring for the first time at 8 Leroy Merlin stores in France. A collaboration with a common goal: to make security solutions accessible to as many people as possible.

The health crisis has led to the emergence of new needs among the French, especially the need to feel good at home: 60% of the French consider safety and comfort a very important aspect (Verisher’s OpinionWay study of a sample of 1010 people, representative of the 18-year-old French population year or more). Two concepts shared by Fairshore Leroy Merlin. The two companies, leaders in their sector, decided to join forces to make an offer that meets the new expectations of the French. With this first physical presence, Verisher can get as close as possible to the French people to provide them with the advice they need. A strategy that the company has already developed several years ago with the largest insurance company in France.

For Leroy Merlin, this partnership with Ver. Having participated in building breakdown, rental and repair services with its partners, the brand is expanding its range of useful and practical solutions that make life easier for residents.

Launching in 8 stores in France and in e-commerce.

The testing phase began on February 12 for 6 months in 8 Leroy Merlin stores: Villeneuve d’Ascq, Nantes, Massey, Rosny, Frejus, Grenoble, Mondolchem, Poliac. Thus, customers can benefit from on-site access to the remote monitoring view of Verisher and its products (opening and impact detectors, HD image and video motion detectors, cameras, etc.). To help residents better understand Verisure’s offering, a security expert will be present every Saturday to provide advice and education on remote monitoring. The remotely monitored Verisher quotation is also available on the Leroy Merlin website where the French can obtain information and request a quote directly online.

We are delighted with this partnership with Leroy Merlin, a record player in his field, with whom we share common values. For Verisher, this collaboration was clear: we are now also in physics. An opportunity for us to be closer to our customers by providing advice and demonstrating the benefits of remote monitoring. We hope that, after this pilot phase, this partnership will become permanent and our presence will extend to other cities. » Sebastian Ports, Business Development Manager.

In order to be useful to the residents, in all their projects from the ground up, Leroy Merlin develops services that make their lives easier. Partnering with Versor is part of this approach. It also provides a remote monitoring solution backed by advice from brand experts. This approach echoes that of Leroy Merlin, who put education at the center of his relationship with the population.
