Some systems have additional sensors to monitor for fire, smoke, and water damage, and some newer systems incorporate security cameras both inside and outside the dwelling. With the added protection offered by home security systems, many insurance companies now offer discounts on premiums on homeowners or renters insurance policies if a homeowner chooses to install a system.
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 outcome of these disasters — many uninsured and underinsured consumers — should serve as a call to action for insurers. They must do more to educate consumers on what is not protected against losses in the policies they purchase.
