Having a Central Alarm System in your home is a great way to get discounts on your homeowner’s insurance! However not all alarms are created equal. We’ve had a number of current clients with alarm systems who recently discovered that their alarm system was not actually monitoring for fire! Finding out your house isn’t as protected as you thought is unpleasant, so we recommend all our clients with alarm systems contact their carrier to verify that their home is fully protected. Not only are you able to get a larger discount on your homeowner’s insurance, you’re given the peace of mind that a disaster in your home will be mitigated more quickly. Don’t wait for after a claim to find out that your alarm wasn’t connected to your smoke detectors or a temperature meter. If you don’t already have alarm service in your homes, consider adding it! With the available discounts a system can pay for itself in just a few years.
