Security System & Homeowners Insurance
Last October we has a whole house security system installed by a national company - the whole ball of works - windows, doors, alarms, central stationing etc. All of the companies advertised 15-20% discount off of our homeowners insurance premium. Well, we finally received our declaration page back and we got a whopping 5% discount. They had previously given us 2% discount for "protective devices" (for what I don't know) and know they upped it to 7%. I am SOOOO disapointed and am going to call the agent. I wouldn't feel so bad if it was even 12% or so - but this is a rip.
So - what all does your insurance companies give for discounts?
BTW - our company is FMI.
And - I had already back in the late summer had them adjust our dwelling down by $53,400 because they kept increasing it. Homeowners is prepaid 1 year in advance and they won't give any money back - they say they will credit off of next year's bill. So now I really have to count to make sure they discount the bill come June (if I don't go elsewhere).
