MADRID -- Luis Miguel Gilpérez, President of Telefónica España, and Luis Gil, President of Business Development and Expansion of the SECURITAS DIRECT Group, today presented Movistar VeriSure Hogar, the world’s first quintuple-play service which builds on the advances and technological innovations of the fixed broadband (fibre optic) and mobile (4.5G) systems. The new service offers a pioneering product which is unique in terms of its features.

Movistar VeriSure Hogar offers customers smarter security for their homes with a 24-hour, 365-day emergency service (run by VERISURE), access control and video cameras with remote recording. It will be available exclusively for customers with Movistar broadband from June 17 onwards at a price of 16 euros a month (including VAT) for the service fee and another 9 euros per month for the equipment rental. Users can install it at home themselves, in addition to self-managing the service via an application on their smartphones. Interested Movistar customers can try the service out free of charge, without any obligation, for 14 days.

Telefónica and Securitas Direct have decided to combine their experience and know-how to offer their customers a product at the forefront of technology, features and design, intended for those who want to make their home more connected and secure. Both companies are also working on launching new added-value digital services into the market in the future, all aimed at improving people’s everyday lives.

The Movistar VeriSure Hogar package includes the ability to control authorized and unauthorized home access, video cameras, an immediate response service for emergencies and remote access controlled via an app installed on the user's smartphone. This is possible due to Movistar's permanent fibre optic or ADSL connection and a pioneering transmission system provided by Sigfox, the French company partly owned by Telefónica. This transmission system is impossible to block to ensure rigorous security.

The only requirement for the service is that the user needs to be a Movistar broadband customer subscribing to any of the versions of Movistar Internet or Movistar Fusion as the system needs connectivity to transmit the images recorded by the camera. To sign up for Movistar VeriSure Hogar customers just need to call 1004 or visit any store in the company network.
