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.
The rapid adoption of Wi-Fi enabled devices has allowed for an increase in what are called “non-monitored” systems. These are security systems that are set up in a home, but are not connected to an alarm company. While these types of systems do offer an additional level of home protection, they might not qualify for a discount on homeowners or renters insurance premiums. Check with your agent or carrier to find out more about what types of home security system installations might qualify for a discount.
Some insurers might not include wildfires as a “covered peril” in areas that are prone to repeated wildfires. If you live in a state where wildfires are more common, your homeowners premium will most likely reflect that increased risk.
