Teros Home Security System
Teros connects and protects your entire home, not just a room as with other all-in-one home security devices. We worked with a third-party vendor called Abode that developed the hardware, and Asurion rebranded it. Since May 2017, the Teros Home Security System has been sold across all Verizon 24 stores in the pilot region of North Georgia. The primary purpose of this product was to explore the market for home security.

Designed and built teroshome.com website with our branding messages with warm, friendly, reliable and same visual language.
Abode developed the app, and we worked to rebrand and tweak it to modify it for Asurion. We made the necessary modifications to ensure that the app aligned with Asurion's brand identity and provided the desired user experience, just as the hardware did.
ONBOARDING EXPERIENCE - USER TESTING
We tested onboarding experience at the office with two product directors and one engineer. Here are some of the issues we found during testing. Based on our testing, we tried to fix the problems for improvement.
Needed to speak to Teros Guardian agent to confirm whether we needed to activate/pay first and then start the setup process with a live agent
Taking too long to respond. It took around 4 minutes to link to a live agent via chat.
Asurion packaging did not have any printed guides.
The Teros Home app – Needed correcting since the app is posted as Teros Home
teroshome.com/install, and it was broken
If the customer linked into Teros Help app from the Teros Home app, there was no way to escape the chat thread to make a voice call instead.
