How Connected Tech Can Get You Home Insurance Savings

The idea that smart tech for your home is too expensive is more of an illusion than a reality. abode Systems works hard to deliver affordable, high-quality smart home devices so more users can enjoy the benefits of smart home technology. Homeowners are now beginning to realize that installing smart technology throughout their home could lead to savings on insurance. A small investment now could mean big savings in the long run.

Smart devices from abode cost as little as $24, and they’re equipped with features far beyond just detecting a break-in. Not only do we offer a great selection of motion sensors and cameras, but we also offer preventative devices like our Smoke Alarm Monitor and Water Leak Sensor. Each of these devices is engineered to detect hazardous conditions in your home so you can avoid or minimize high-cost damages before they occur.

In addition to preventative maintenance, smart home devices can increase your home’s energy efficiency. Popular smart home thermostats by nest and ecobee are compatible with abode. They monitor your home’s temperature and learn your schedule, so you don’t waste energy overheating or over-cooling your home while you’re away. When you return home, you have the luxury of enjoying the temperature you desire inside your house. Both nest and ecobee are ENERGY STAR® certified, which means they save money on energy bills by increasing your home’s energy efficiency, and as a bonus, they protect the environment through their energy-efficient products.

abode’s system also includes a best in class home automation engine at no extra cost. With this, users can set rules and actions throughout your home that will occur automatically based on your behaviors or the environment. An example: you can have your living room light turn on only when you are home and it is after sunset. You won’t use electricity while you’re away, and you can enjoy the benefit of a well-lit room after sunset.

At the time of release, we know of more than five home insurance companies offering discounts for the use of smart preventative and/or green devices in your home. American Family, Progressive, Farmers, Liberty Mutual, and Nationwide are among those companies who see the value and safety of a smart home and want to reward their customers for protecting their home with these devices. Discounts range by provider, location, and other eligibility factors, so talk to your local agent to find out more.

With affordable up-front costs and long-term savings, a smart security system from abode is an all-around win. Take a look at our flexible plans, and check with your home insurance provider to see how much money you could be saving.
