TELUS and Hilo: For a smarter, more eco-friendly home

Two leaders in home digital technologies are launching a pilot project in Québec City that will be rolled out to more cities, providing Québec residents hundreds of dollars in savings

Montréal, August 31, 2021 – TELUS and Hilo have joined forces to elevate the experience of connected, smart and energy efficient homes for Quebecers. A pilot project launched in Québec City bundles TELUS’ home automation and security technologies with Hilo's smart home solutions to help Quebecers seamlessly manage their electricity and security, while reducing their bills and environmental footprint. This collaboration highlights both companies’ focus on building a sustainable future and supporting Québec’s collective effort to consume energy more efficiently and intelligently.

“Hilo is a key partner on our journey to have more Quebecers adopt and promote sustainable practices, thanks to improved energy-efficiency offerings for the home,” said Marie-Christine D’Amours, Vice-President of TELUS, Consumer Solutions and Customer Experience for Québec. “This collaboration marks another important milestone in TELUS’ evolution from a telecommunications company to a global technology leader with digital solutions, and health and agriculture divisions. As Canada’s largest provider of home security and automation services, we are proud to expand our offer in Québec to create a friendlier future with efficient and user-friendly technologies.”

In the coming weeks, the joint offer will be rolled out to residents in more cities across the province. Quebecers who take advantage of combined services from TELUS and Hilo will receive discounts of up to $315 on their bill –the value of three months of TELUS SmartHome Security services at $0 and a $150 credit from Hilo. Customers who opt for the bundle will enjoy additional savings of up to 15% on their electricity bills thanks to Hilo’s smart home technologies.
