How to Lower Your Home Insurance RatesMay 22, 2018
Slice 15 Percent Off with Monitored Security Devices
Installing monitored safety and security devices in your home can save you a nice chunk of change on your homeowner’s insurance. The Allstate Safe Home discount, for instance, will slice 15% off your bill when your home has additional protection against fire and theft, such as a home security system. The Nationwide Protective Device discount also puts money back in your pocket for having a home security system, as does State Farm and many other homeowner insurance companies.
Lock Your Doors!! Install a Smart Lock
According to Nationwide, homes without a security system are three times more likely to get targeted, and 90% of convicted burglars admit they’d avoid a home with a security system. Data they provide in the post, gathered from law enforcement, nationwide and home security experts reveal some stunning realities. Approximately one in three burglars enter homes through unlocked and unclosed doors, windows or other openings with the use of any force whatsoever.
Think Twice About Posting Vacation Photos
Another interesting stat reported is, four out of five burglars actually use social media outlets, like Twitter and Facebook, and four in ten homeowners in the 18-34 demographic post updates about their vacation on these sites. (Might as well post – WE AIN’T HOME!)
