In these days of robberies and home invasions, even our own homes are not as safe as they were in years gone by. Home security systems free us from a great deal of worry. But did you know that installing a home security system will reduce your insurance costs? Home security systems protect your family and your possessions from intruders and from theft. They are also generally equipped with smoke and fire detection devices that notify the fire department the instant they are activated. Because of the safety and protection these systems provide, insurance policies today generally include a provision for savings on premiums if a monitored security system is installed in your home. The perfect times to install a system are during construction or during a remodel or renovation. Installing a security system will give you greater peace of mind. Once you notify your insurance company of the installation of a monitored system in your home, you can start saving on your insurance costs for as long as you remain in your home.
