If you have not done so already, let your insurance company know that you have a monitored security system. On average, you'll save around 25% off of your premiums. Depending on your policy and your carrier, this can make your monitoring fee close to a wash. Why not let the insurance company pay for your protection? As far as they are concerned a protected home is less risk to them, which is why they offer such discounts. Some insurance carriers will even give you an additional discount if you have fire protection, while others just give one total discount. A call to your agent or insurance company would clarify this. This may also be a good time to shop your insurance carriers. It's something most people don't think about, but can save hundreds of dollars per year. We also recommend having at least one monitored smoke detector integrated into your system. If your insurance company needs a certificate showing that you have a monitored system or you would like to add fire protection to your system, please contact us to schedule an appointment and/or we can forward an alarm certificate to your insurance company or agent.
