But even with eye-opening photos of these disasters populating our phones, computer screens and newspapers, there still seems to be a sense of complacency among consumers when it comes to taking action to ensure they are properly covered in the event a natural disaster hits their own home. Given the prevalence of natural disasters in 2017, Clearsurance published a report after surveying 1,000 participants to learn if they have taken any steps in the last six months to uncover possible insurance gaps.
Most homeowner insurance policies for coastal properties now have separate deductibles for damage caused by hurricanes, and the amounts are usually based on a percentage of the home’s insured value, rather than a flat dollar fee. Details of a policy’s hurricane deductible will typically be explained on the policy’s “declarations” page. Ms. Bach suggests that consumers call their insurance agent if they don’t fully understand what their policy requires, so they can plan for out-of-pocket costs in the event of a storm.
Home security systems work by reinforcing entry points around the house, such as doors and windows. Using a system of electronically networked sensors, these points are connected to a central control panel, usually in conjunction with interior motion detectors. For doors and windows, sensors are made of two parts, one which installs on the frame and the other on the moving part (the door or the window). When the alarm system is activated with windows and doors closed, the two portions complete a circuit.
