Save on Insurance

Most insurance companies insist on you having a fully functional home alarm system installed when you insure your household contents with them. On top of that they won’t pay out if the alarm is not activated while you are out and there’s a break-in.

You’ll be surprised how many people have a fully installed and operational alarm system, but don’t activate it when they’re out of the house or have retired to bed for the night.

Why is this? The answers we get are astonishing; The cats will set it off, the wind blowing against the windows sets it off, or it keeps going off while we’re on holiday and we don’t want to be bothered by the security company while we’re away. How crazy are these answers. It’s important to get into the habit of setting your alarm.

Keep the pet/s in one room while you’re out or make sure the motion sensors are set at human height and aren’t triggered by the dogs.

The alarm should be easy to activate and deactivate (for you and not intruders).

Close all windows and doors before leaving the house so that there’s no movement (curtains blowing) in the house.

It’s important to take as many precautionary measures as possible. You don’t want to have one of those “I didn’t think it would happen to me” moments.

And on top of that – the better your alarm system, the better rate you can negotiate with your insurance company.
