Zonoff and HomeAdvisor Partner to Deliver First Integration of a Home Service Provider into a Home Automation Platform

Malvern, PA/Golden, CO/Las Vegas, January 6, 2016, from CES 2016Zonoff, Inc., the Consumer Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider that empowers the world’s top brands to deliver smart, seamless living, and HomeAdvisor, a leading nationwide online home services marketplace, today announced a partnership that will integrate HomeAdvisor’s network of prescreened and customer-rated home service professionals into the Zonoff Consumer IoT platform. This first-time integration of home services with home automation systems elevates the smart home from a notification engine to an end-to-end home-service solution, creating new and recurring revenue opportunities for Zonoff clients and partners while offering peace of mind to consumers.

“HomeAdvisor’s instant technology extends the convenience that Zonoff-powered smart home systems already provide homeowners,” said Chris Terrill, HomeAdvisor’s CEO. “No other company in our space has the scale and technology to fully maximize the smart home experience and put homeowners instantly and seamlessly in touch with pre-screened and available home pros.”

In addition to providing unique revenue opportunities and a full-service home solution for clients, Zonoff and HomeAdvisor are giving consumers the ability to not only be made aware that something is wrong but also the ability to instantly connect, within seconds, with pre-screened, available pros nationwide. HomeAdvisor’s patent pending Instant Connect technology is available for Zonoff’s clients to utilize via the Zonoff platform and further allows Zonoff’s clients to extend the Internet of Things throughout the home for the home dwellers safety, convenience and joy in taking top-notch care of their abode.

“Our clients now have the power to bring peace of mind to their consumers through this partnership with HomeAdvisor,” said Mike Harris, CEO of Zonoff. “With Zonoff’s proven Consumer IoT platform, HomeAdvisor can bring their network of prescreened professionals to the rapidly growing population of smart home owners.”

Current platform offerings for the home offer consumers instant notification when there is an issue in the home but are unable to provide speedy resolution if the homeowner is away at the time of a home maintenance issue. With smart home product integration steadily on the rise, HomeAdvisor provides the ease for homeowners to be immediately connected with home professionals from plumbers to electricians through their smart home platform. Zonoff brings that on-demand accessibility to the mass market through its Consumer IoT platform, tailoring their ecosystem of smart devices and solutions to the experience.
