Having A Home Security System Helps Lower Homeowners Premiums
Posted by Partners Risk Services on
Prior to finding you the best quote for home insurance, we always ask about smoke detectors and security systems in your home. Many insurance companies offer discounts for those homeowners who have security systems. Our mission is to be Partners with our clients. We want to be their trusted Risk Management and Insurance Consultant; not just a better vendor.
Here are few of the different kinds of security systems that can help reduce your home insurance costs.
Outside lights- Set these up on timers so they come on even when you are gone. Also, motion detecting lights are an excellent deterrent and can be installed at a low cost.
Cameras are also a good deterrent. Place cameras around outside doors and your yard. Many home improvement stores offer cost-effective products.
Alarms are always a good idea. Alarm systems that are connected to a central station will yield the best discount.
Other Home Insurance Credits
Most insurance companies offer many types of discounts for homeowners. We are committed to keeping up on all these discounts to make sure you are getting the best coverage and price. Some of these discounts can include:
Updates in wiring and/or plumbing
Non smokers – The No. 1 cause of home fire fatalities in the United States is smoking. Smoking caused 16,000 residential fires in 2012, killing over 500 people and causing $376 million in residential property loss. Source- U.S. Fire Administration
Senior citizen discounts- If you are over 55 and retired you may have discounts waiting for you.
Sprinklers- Many new home building codes require sprinklers. These can be expensive but will provide home insurance discounts.
