Insurance companies are offering huge savings to homeowners who have a monitored security system installed in their home.
Savings for the homeowner start at about 5% for homes which have smoke detector, basic security system or deadbolts. The savings can jump up to 20% if a monitored system is added. These systems contact the appropriate authorities or monitoring station when an incident occurs. The total savings can offset the price of the system, while offering a safer home environment.
The average premium discount for a home equipped with a monitored alarm system is 20%.
The reason insurance companies are now offering such huge discounts for customers who have a monitored security system installed is because modern systems are more reliable than ever before. Not only can these systems reduce claims, they are also capable of handling multiple safety concerns throughout a home. Most systems can offer the homeowner these additional features integrated right into their security system, such as; smoke, fire and flood alarms.
Investing in a monitored home security system can offer you the peace of mind your family deserves, as well as, save you money on your homeowners’ insurance.
In a study conducted by Simon Hakin at Temple University, it was found that an alarmed single family home is 60% less likely to be broken in to than a similar home without an alarm. Another study, conducted by Rutgers University, shows that advances in security technology makes systems more affordable, versatile and dependable than ever before. These technical innovations have increased the availability of home security systems to middle class homeowners and have reduced crime.
