Before you Insure

Will an alarm system reduce my annual premium?

For Home Insurance Customers

You can get a discount for having an approved intruder alarm system installed in your home.

In order to be approved a burglar alarm must be installed by a company that is compliant with all regulations under both the Private Securities Agency and current European standards. The alarm itself must also comply with the current European standard.

Alarms which have not been installed by a regulated company are excluded.

If you notify us that you have an alarm, an alarm clause will automatically be put on your policy.

These include conditions that must be met at all times otherwise you may not be fully covered. You will need to check the endorsements section of your insurance schedule to see if an alarm clause has been applied.
