Installing a security system in your home has a range of benefits.
One of those benefits that you may not have considered is that it can help you save money on your insurance policy.
In this blog article, we outline how a home security system can put money back in your pocket when it comes to insurance.
WITHOUT HOME SECURITY
Unfortunately, burglars are out there, and they may try to break into your home.
It’s a sad fact of life but having a high-quality home security system is the best defence against a burglar.
So, in the unlikely event that a burglar does invade your property, do you know if you’re be covered by your insurer?
Well, it all comes down to how well your home is protected.
Below are some examples of why your home and contents insurance can become void in the event of a break-in:
- Leaving your home unlocked
- Not having an alarm (or not turning it on)
- Providing an entry point for burglars (open window, spare key, etc.)
- Not reporting to police in due time
- Leaving your home unattended for an extended period of time
By ensuring your home is locked up and having a functional home security system installed, you are in control.
Not only do you protect your property, your belongings and your family—you keep your home and contents insurance policy intact.
Prices and conditions vary depending on the insurance provider.
We recommend you get in contact with your preferred provider before talking to us about installing a security system.
HOW MUCH SECURITY DO I NEED?
This is generally decided on a case-by-case basis. It depends on the size and scope of your property, as well as how much you’re willing to spend.
As a rule of thumb, the more your property is protected, the more you save on your insurance policy.
However, it’s important to note that the cost of the security system may outweigh the savings on your home and contents insurance policy.
So, it comes down to you and what level of security is needed for your home.
