Has your insurer specified a monitored alarm? You’re not alone. As security industry experts we often design systems to meet insurer’s requirements. Whether it’s a specific grade of monitoring or a certain type of system, we work hard to ensure our customers have the correct level of cover.
Insurance companies prefer businesses to have a monitored intruder alarm because it reduces the risk of theft and damage to the property. A monitored alarm system ensures that any attempt to break in is immediately detected and reported to the monitoring centre. This report can then alert the appropriate person. A quick response like this reduces the chances of a successful theft or break-in, making it a lower risk for insurance companies to insure the business.
Having a monitored alarm system can potentially lower insurance premiums for the business, as it is seen as a proactive measure to protect the property and assets.
Many insurers will require that your alarm is installed and maintained by an industry approved company, such as Keybury Fire and Security. We are approved NSI GOLD certified.
What are the benefits of an insurer specified monitored alarm?
A monitored intruder alarm system is not only beneficial to insurance companies, but it also provides peace of mind for business owners. Here are some additional reasons why businesses should consider investing in a monitored alarm system:
- A monitored alarm system can deter potential intruders. The presence of a visible alarm system can make criminals think twice before attempting to break in.
- In the event of a break-in, a monitored alarm system can provide evidence for insurance claims. The monitoring centre can provide footage of the incident, which can be used as evidence to support insurance claims.
- Monitored alarm systems can also alert business owners or managers of any unauthorized access outside of business hours. This can help prevent internal theft and ensure that only authorized personnel are on the property.
There are a range of monitoring options available. Choose from Police monitored or key holder monitored systems. Alternatively App monitored alarms which give you remote control and real-time notifications.
Overall, a monitored intruder alarm system is an investment in the security of a business and its assets. It not only reduces the risk of theft and damage but can also potentially lower insurance premiums and provide peace of mind for business owners.
