Get a Homeowners Insurance Discount with Alarm Grid's Central Station Service
Here at Alarm Grid, we know that central station monitoring is very important as numerous studies have found that by having a monitored security system, your home is much less likely to be burglarized. Of course, as we are an alarm monitoring company ourselves, don’t just take our word for it. Call your homeowner’s insurance company and ask their opinion. You will find that a hidden advantage of having a monitored security system is that you will get a discount on your homeowner’s insurance policy.
The insurance companies analyze risk for a living and they fully understand that a home protected by a monitored security system is much less likely to file a claim when compared to a home that is not monitored, even if that home has a security system that is not hooked up to a central station. In fact, we’ve asked around and homeowner’s insurance companies value alarm monitoring so much that they are willing to give you a discount of up to 20% off of your homeowner’s insurance premium!
Alarm Grid alarm monitoring plans backed by a central station start at only $15/month so if your homeowner’s insurance premium is $900 a year, a 20% discount would subsidize the entire cost of the alarm monitoring plan. You can get the peace of mind and security that an alarm monitoring plan provides without spending a dime.
We have talked to some homeowner’s insurance companies that require your monitored security system to protect against theft and fire emergencies for you to be eligible for the biggest insurance premium discount available. Therefore, if you want to maximize your savings, call us today to find out how you can easily add smoke detectors and heat detectors to your security system.
In some cases, we have even been told that monitored security systems that include environmental sensors, which protect against flood and extreme temperature situations, may be eligible for an additional homeowner’s insurance premium discount.
We recommend calling your homeowner’s insurance company when picking out your new security system so that you can be sure to add the sensors that will get you the biggest savings. Also, if you already have a security system, it is worth a call to your homeowner’s insurance company to see if adding these types of sensors can get you a bigger discount than you may already receive. An Alarm Grid security expert can walk you through the easy process of upgrading your security system with additional protection devices. Just remember, unlike other alarm monitoring companies, Alarm Grid’s alarm monitoring plans cover all types of emergencies so you will not have to pay extra per month if your security system does include fire or environmental protection.
If you are an Alarm Grid customer that is monitored, you can get your insurance document on the My Accounts page.
