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 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.
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.
