Why Insurance Companies Love Security Systems
Getting control of the household budget is something we all attempt to do, but it can be difficult to determine what costs are most expendable. As you weigh the pros and cons of each expense consider that your insurance agent prefers you keep your alarm system monitored.
Here are some of the reasons your insurance agent knows your home alarm system is worth the expense:
- Burglars are opportunists who look for the quick entry and looking for cash, jewelry, electronics, guns and other easily sold items.
- A burglary takes place every 14.6 seconds in the U.S.
- The average loss per burglary is $1725.
- Homes with monitored security systems are three times less likely to be burglary targets.
- Fires can happen anytime with little warning.
Your insurance agent knows that they have less to worry about if you are actively securing and monitoring your home for both security and fire threats. This reduces the chances you will have a claim. Since this saves your agent money, they pass the savings onto you with discounts. If you haven’t looked into your homeowners insurance discount, start there when you’re looking to cut costs in 2015.
