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.
In a year that’s brought potentially unprecedented damage across the United States from natural disasters, consumers surveyed by Clearsurance said they were concerned a natural disaster could also cause damage to their own home. Yet despite 87 percent of respondents expressing concern, very few took action by enhancing their existing insurance policy or purchasing a new one.
The rapid adoption of Wi-Fi enabled devices has allowed for an increase in what are called “non-monitored” systems.

Check with your agent or carrier to find out more about what types of home security system installations might qualify for a discount.
