Homeowner Topic: Another Piece of The Security Puzzle: Insurance
We have talked all month about the different facets of security & insurance is another piece of that security puzzle. Even with all the precautions in place, unfortunate events can happen and can come in the form of loss through fire, water, or theft. It is a good idea to make sure you have the correct amount of insurance to cover loss.

Clay Jansen of Phocus Insurance discusses another type of security: Insurance! Clay talks about 'visual audits'. The 'Don'ts' concerning window bars and dogs as your sole security system.
Another 'Don't' is being careful posting on social media if you're out of town.
Some 'Do's' include connecting your security system directly to police and fire, door and window locks, keeping valuables hidden and eliminating places for crooks to hide in the front yard.
Clay details examining the fine print on your homeowner's policy. A blanket policy usually doesn't cover the full value of individual items. Explains what a 'floater policy' does for specific item value.
THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO! Take a complete inventory of the entire home with pictures. It 'connects the dots' to theft and damage.
Suggest our digital home management tool Home Zada. Inventory dream come true!
