VC-backed Life360, the provider of a location and communication app for families, has raised $50 million in a Series C financing round led by a $25 million investment from ADT (NYSE: ADT). The partnership will provide a valuable lead generation source for ADT and enable the development of co-branded mobile security applications to provide greater safety and security services to families. One planned development from the partnership is a new mobile application that will integrate features from ADT Chaperone, an existing ‘on-the-go’ personal security offering from ADT. The upcoming mobile application from ADT and Life360 will provide direct access to ADT’s 24/7 monitoring centers that can connect users to police, fire and emergency medical responders. The new co-developed mobile application will be available in late 2014. Life360 previously raised $17 million of Series B funding (at a $52 million valuation) from DCM, Bessemer Venture Partners, Fontinalis Partners and others in late 2013.
