How to Get a Professional Monitoring Certificate for Your Insurance Company

Many insurance companies offer discounts on insurance for homes and apartments with professionally-monitored* alarm systems. Ring Alarm provides a monitoring certificate for your alarm system that you can submit to your insurance company to see if you may qualify for a discount on your premium. Contact your insurance provider for more details.

You might find that the cost savings from an insurance discount could cover at least a part of your Ring Protect Pro subscription cost ($20/month or $200/year) when you continue your enrollment in professional monitoring* for your Ring Alarm. See the full list of benefits you’ll enjoy with a Ring Protect Pro plan. The amount you could save depends on your yearly insurance premium cost and the applicable discount from your insurance company.

NOTE: Insurance certificates are only available to neighbors with Ring Alarm who are enrolled in alarm professional monitoring,* which requires a Ring Protect Pro subscription ($20/month or $200/year). If you do not continue your professional monitoring subscription, the certificate will be void and you may lose the discount from your insurance provider.

How Much Can I Save on My Homeowner’s Insurance with an Alarm Professional Monitoring* Discount?

Your actual savings depends on your home’s size and location, your insurance carrier, your premiums, and a number of other factors.

The average annual premium in the United States was $1,272 in 2019 according to data published by the Insurance Information Institute. As an example, if this is your annual insurance premium and your insurance carrier offers a 10% insurance discount for a professionally monitored* alarm system, you could enjoy a savings of $127 each year on your insurance premium.

The average insurance discount ranges from 2% to 15%.** Actual savings may vary.
