Energy provider Meridian has partnered up with home security retailer, Nest Labs, in an effort to offer customers the latest smart-home technology.
The technology products on offer include the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, Nest Cam Indoor, Nest Cam Outdoor and Nest IQ indoor products.
The new security systems have been announced through Meridian, which have launched an online shop dedicated to the products.
The products retail for $219 up to $550, with the whole security package falling around the $1500 mark.
The partnership will allow new and pre-existing Meridian customers to completely monitor their homes in terms of both energy usage and safety.
Meridian head of marketing, Melanie Lynn says, “Meridian is pleased to have partnered with leading smart-home brand Nest.”
“Our customers have been asking us for smart-home solutions that allow them to take more control of their home and what’s important to them. Meridian is the only energy retailer with an online store providing products that can make this happen.”
With more than 90 percent of Meridian customers using smart-meters, the time was right for the fully renewable energy generator to look at new ways for customers to look after their home and what’s important to them.
