Home Security Discounts
Save 10% or More with a Home Security Discount
Making your house safer can pay off
It stands to reason that homes without security systems are more likely to be broken into that homes with monitored systems. But did you know that homes without this layer of protection are 300% more likely to be targeted by criminals.
The numbers are staggering - a home burglary occurs every 13 seconds in the U.S., according to the FBI. The average theft claim comes in at $3,428, according to the Insurance Information Institute.
Considering all that, it makes sense that home insurance providers often reward homeowners with centrally or locally monitored security systems. That reward can come in the form of a discount on home insurance premiums of 10% or more.
How can I qualify?
To qualify for a home security discount you must have a fully functioning centrally or locally monitored alarm system installed in your home. Your home insurance provider may ask for a copy of your alarm system certificate in order to verify that you qualify for the discount. This discount is only available in some states and you should contact an agent to see if your provider offers this discount in your area.
How much can I save?
Typically, homeowners save 10% or more with a Home Security Discount. Your actual savings may depend on the type of system you own as well as the discount plan offered by your provider.
Are there other benefits?
Many home security systems do more than just make your house harder to break into. They can monitor your walls and floors for hotspots and extreme cold, and many detect smoke and carbon monoxide.
The cumulative effect: You can rest easier while saving money.
