Aviva gives away a Canary to 500 lucky customers

Article date: 1 October 2015

October is National Home Security Month and Aviva, the UK’s leading insurer, has teamed up with innovative home security system provider, Canary, to give away 500 of its devices to new home insurance customers.

Canary, which has just launched in the UK, is a complete home security system packaged into one device which uses digital smartphone technology. It’s compact design means it weighs less than a bag of sugar (396g) and measures just over the size of a pint glass (15.4cm) making it portable and easy to move around the home.
New Aviva customers who purchase home insurance between 01 October and 30 November 2015 will be entered into a prize draw with a chance of  winning one of 500 devices.*

Adam Beckett, propositions director at Aviva, said: “We’re excited to be offering our new home insurance customers the chance to win a state-of-the-art Canary home security device. Canary is a simple and innovative new product which uses smartphone technology to help people protect their homes and provide peace of mind for the whole family.
“We look forward to working with Canary and making the most of our shared home security and digital innovation expertise.”
