NEW YORKMay 7, 2020SourceCode Communications today announced that it has been selected as the communications agency of record for Kangaroo, the leader in affordable, easy-to-use home security products. Kangaroo directly engaged with SourceCode given the agency’s experience in the smart home category, initially focusing the team on the launch of its innovative new Privacy Camera security device, which seamlessly integrates privacy protections into the camera’s core functionality.

“As a challenger brand in a growing but competitive market, you don’t win by simply following others’ playbook. Instead, we put a significant premium on disruptive ideas – product through to marketing,,” said Bob Stohrer, Chief Marketing Officer at Kangaroo. “SourceCode shares this ethos and clearly demonstrated that they could amplify our efforts now, and into the future. We’re excited to have them on our team.”

Founded on the belief that security should be accessible to all, Kangaroo’s hubless, app-based, DIY home security system offers the most comprehensive and easy to use solution at its price point, with no compromise on user data protection and privacy. In March, the company launched its game-changing security camera designed to protect users’ homes while keeping their privacy top of mind – only monitoring what they want, when they want. Privacy Camera builds on Kangaroo’s impressive suite of products which include a Motion + Entry Sensor, Siren + Keypad and Water + Climate Sensor, all of which are controlled from the Kangaroo app. In light of the current crisis, SourceCode is also supporting Kangaroo’s efforts to give back through a Small Business Initiative and #TrooHeroes campaign that provides free security products to businesses and first responders directly impacted by COVID-19.

“As a homeowner myself, I know how important home security is for protecting not just my property, but the people inside of it as well. Unfortunately, for many Americans, access to affordable and easy-to-use home security is simply not available,” said Greg Mondshein, Managing Partner at SourceCode Communications. “We were immediately drawn to the Kangaroo team and their passion for making sure that anyone, anywhere could have access to the necessary tools to protect their homes. This commitment to using technology for good to actually help communities aligned well with SourceCode’s core mission and we’re so thrilled to be working with the incredible team at Kangaroo to continue making that human impact.”

Founded in 2017, SourceCode continues to build on its successful consumer practice, recently attracting top-tier brands Everlast, TURO, MakeSpace, and Handshake and growing an astounding 400% YoY. Recognized for in-depth experience and an impressive track record in both consumer and enterprise practices, the agency was recently honored as a top performer in PRWeek’s 2020 Agency Business Report, and shortlisted for PRovoke’s 2020 North America Boutique PR Agency of the Year.
