home security service
The total discount given as a result
of homes having security systems differs based upon the features of the system for instance, a system monitored by a central monitoring station should provide a larger discount compared to one that is not monitored and the amount of coverage purchased initially and the company offering the insurance. In general, homeowners receive a 10 20% discount on their insurance by having a functioning home alarm system installed. This type of system allows the home alarm to be remotely armed or disarmed, cameras to be monitored, household lights to be turned off and on, air conditioning or heating to be turned on or changed, and motion detectors to be monitored. All of these functions not only allow homeowners to watch for intruders, but they
also help to protect the home remotely. Turning on lights at a specified time through remote access can help to give the illusion that someone is at home even when they are not. Accessing the heating or air conditioning can help to prepare the home for sudden temperature changes to prevent pipe damage and can also help to save on electric or gas bills.
