You know that home security systems are great for increasing your protection. They shield you from danger with the latest technology like surveillance systems, smart locking systems, and alarms. With the proper set up, you also enjoy the advantages of a monitoring team that has your back any time the alarm is tripped.

But there’s something else to think about as your home’s defense may help you financially. For starters, there’s savings on energy expenses via automated components. And many times whole-home systems like the ones installed by Vivint might get you a home insurance discount.

Monitored home security installations are great for insurance discounts in Long Beach

It’s true you might get an insurance discount on your home security system in Long Beach. The amount of your discount might vary greatly and is dependent on a couple elements - your insurance provider and the kind of equipment you install. While a basic, bare-bones alarm with two or three window or door sensors could equate to a minor reduction of your premium, there may be an opportunity to increase your discount even more.

When you incorporate devices including security cameras, monitored safety alarms, and smart locks, you may get more of a financial benefit from your insurer. If you would like a more substantial discount, you should include 24/7 monitoring. When you include monitoring, you’re telling the insurer that a trained professional is constantly overseeing your property and ready to deal with an emergency, whether you’re at home or away. To get specifics on if you might qualify and the amount you can save, touch base with your insurance agent.

Home automation in Long Beach gives you added savings

Trying to save even more money? Home automation is a great solution. Envision having a smart thermostat that actually knows your routine and changes settings accordingly. Whenever you leave in the morning, your thermostat is able to automatically adjust to help you conserve energy. Your lighting may be set to function in a comparable way and activate as you enter a room or turn off as you exit. As time passes, the savings on your utility costs could be surprising.

Whole-home smart homes by Vivint are easy to implement and are able to be configured during the install or completed later via your smart hub or the mobile app. It doesn’t take long to initiate a responsive, full-featured system.

Didn’t remember to shut off your lighting? Access your system no matter where you are

One more means to lower energy expenses is by operating your system from a distance. While it’s true your smart home can change settings on its own, you may also easily control components from your phone. If you don’t remember to shut off your lighting or adjust the thermostat before exiting, it’s not a problem. Just go into the Vivint app on your smartphone and make the desired updates. You may even activate or deactivate your system from wherever you are. Wish to change how your components react? You may do that from your mobile device as well.
