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 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.
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.
