When you are trying to convince a customer that he can afford to add a monthly expense for a security system that includes monitoring, one of the major selling points can be the fact that the service (provided by our company) can result in savings on other monthly bills such as homeowner’s insurance premiums.
For example, Farmers insurance states that there are 5 ways to reduce premiums, and one of those is making the home safe. Methods of making the home safer in the eyes of the insurance company include:
- Use of deadbolts on windows and doors
- A monitored security system
- Smoke detectors
- Alarms that result in automatic alerts
In fact, according to bankrate.com, having sensors in your home can save a consumer up to 10% on insurance premiums. That gives you a major selling point for defraying the costs of a monthly security plan.
Residential Monitoring by NMC
What kind of residential monitoring does the National Monitoring Center allow you to offer to your clients? Detection, signaling, and response are available for:
- A/C Power Failure
- Low Battery
- And more!
In fact, one of the things your clients may appreciate most from our services (besides lower premiums) is the fact that we offer text notifications. Parents can gain peace of mind when they get a text as a child disarms the alarm when arriving home from school and then another text when the child rearms the system upon entering. It’s a comforting addition to a security monitoring service for the modern latchkey kid world that we live in.
