Ms. Worters noted that standard homeowner policies don’t cover damage from floodwaters, even if it is caused by a hurricane’s storm surge. Homeowners must buy separate flood coverage, either through the National Flood Insurance Program or from private companies. There is often a waiting period (30 days, in the case of federal flood insurance) before flood policies take effect. Homeowners who want coverage beyond a standard flood policy can also consider extra insurance, available from excess or surplus lines insurers.
The control panel is used to arm and disarm the system. If the system is armed and one of the circuits on the window or door sensors is interrupted, an alarm sounds. If it is a professionally monitored system, that alarm also notifies the alarm company that there has been a breach. The alarm company then follows a set of procedures, including contacting the homeowner or emergency contact to make sure it is not a false alarm, and then the authorities (fire or police) are called.
The trouble with this logic is that although many believe their insurance policy will properly cover them, in reality many will not be properly covered when disaster strikes. Take Hurricane Harvey for example. Approximately 70 percent of the flood damage from Hurricane Harvey was uninsured, according to CoreLogic, a leading source for flood and disaster risk data.
