What do you call cheap alarm monitoring? Is it $35 a month, $45? No, cheap alarm monitoring is when you get an insurance discount that covers the cost of the alarm monitoring, or at least most of the cost. Most insurance company discounts are 5% to 20% depending on the company and what security and safety features you have. Most will give 5% for just having a monitored alarm system and even more if you have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, dead bolts, sprinkler system, etc..
To save the most money you need to get fire detection installed in your home. Almost all insurance companies give a bigger discount for having monitored fire detection in the home. The cost to insurance companies for claims for fire and lightning are 10 times that of burglary, it makes sense that they would give more of a discount for fire detection. Many homeowners have security systems without any type of fire detection and are losing the insurance discount they could be getting for having a smoke detector or two installed in their home.
The average cost of homeowners insurance was $878 in Texas in 2010. With a 20% discount, that is almost $15 a month. Most people in the DFW area are paying more than the average though, so you save even more. With Automated Interiors, you could have a security system that almost, if not completely, pays for itself. Thats cheap alarm monitoring for DFW.
