Homeowners Insurance Discounts for Theft Prevention

Your homeowners insurance provider may offer discounts for certain theft prevention measures, including:

Deadbolts
You may qualify for a discount on your homeowners insurance if you have deadbolts on all of your exterior doors.

Burglar Alarm System
For potentially greater savings, consider installing a burglar alarm or a home security system that connects to an outside service, says Jeanne Salvatore of the Insurance Information Institute. “They can alert the authorities and can dispatch police protection immediately,” she says.

Homeowners Insurance Discounts for Fire Protection

You may find you'll receive a discount on your homeowners insurance if you have certain fire protection measures installed. For instance:

Fire Extinguishers
Having a fire extinguisher on every floor may help you save on your homeowners insurance.

Smoke Detectors
You may also qualify for a discount on your homeowners insurance if you have smoke detectors on every floor.

Sprinkler System
For an extra layer of protection and potentially greater savings, consider installing a home sprinkler system on each floor of your house.

Fire Alarm
A fire alarm that connects directly to an outside monitoring service may not only speed up the dispatch and arrival of your nearest fire personnel, Salvatore says, but may also qualify you for a discount on your homeowners insurance.
