Abode January 30, 2019

By installing a smart home security system from abode, you’ll reap more than just safety benefits. Our affordable devices, flexible plans, and easy, DIY home security systems make upgrading your house to a smart home easier than ever before. We’re pleased to see that insurance companies are realizing the benefits of smart homes, too, and rewarding customers for installing smart home security devices.

From smoke detectors to thermostats to leak monitors, connected devices that monitor your home reduce your risk of having to file expensive claims through your insurance provider. Because of this mutual benefit, many insurance companies now offer homeowners and renters discounts on their monthly premiums when they use smart home devices.

Ask your insurance provider how you can save money by installing smart home devices. We recommend talking with an agent for full details on eligible devices and systems.

Here are 5 insurance companies offering discounts right now:

  1. American Family

American Family Insurance offers up to a 5% discount on homeowners insurance on homes with smart home devices. Qualifying devices include those that detect water, improve your energy efficiency and increase your home’s overall safety like a smart home security system.
