There is no question; not only has technology made our lives easier, but it is also keeping us safer and helping to keep insurance premiums lower. Let’s look at a few ways technology has helped with your homeowner’s insurance.
These technologies can help lower your homeowner’s insurance cost. Many of these can be controlled through your smartphone, which gives you control no matter where you are.
Geofencing. This emerging security technology gives peace of mind by creating a virtual bubble around your home. When you're out of the security bubble, you'll default to “away” mode. If there's a movement within the bubble while you're away, you’ll get a push notification.
Smart Plugs or Outlets - Smart plugs, also known as smart outlets, can provide peace of mind if you wonder whether you remembered to unplug the coffee pot or the iron before you left home.
Sprinkler Systems - Home fire sprinkler systems are becoming very common in larger homes, and many new building codes require them in some homes. These systems are designed for new construction, but retrofitting costs are coming down as technology improves.
Leak detection systems for water heaters and gas lines - Many of today’s home security systems are designed to detect leaks, furnace failures, and other common household problems.
Smart Locks. No more worrying about forgetting to lock the door. With a tap of your mobile device, you can lock and unlock your home from anywhere. You can also program smart locks to automatically lock whenever you leave your home — reducing the chance of an incident.
