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. 

According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, the average homeowners insurance policy premium is $1211*. 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 $121 each year on your insurance premium. If you have a Ring Protect subscription (required for professional monitoring), your subscription costs could be paid for by the insurance discount savings regardless of whether you were paying for the subscription monthly ($10/month) or annually ($100/year). 

The average insurance discount ranges from 2% to 15%* so your actual savings may vary.
