Most insurance companies will check for a professionally installed, Grade 2 or higher, monitored alarm rather than a specific alarm manufacturer or make. This makes it easier for insurance companies to ensure that alarms are up to specification without being aware of specific models.
The Boundary alarm system will be a Grade 2 approved alarm system as defined by the European standard BS EN 50131 to enable insurers to approve the systems use.
How any alarm system will affect your insurance quote is something you should discuss with your insurer/potential insurer.
A few questions you could ask your insurance company:
- What grades of certification do you take into consideration when assessing an alarm system and how does it affect my insurance quote?
- Do you take into consideration if the alarm is professionally installed and how does this affect my insurance quote?
- Do you require the alarm to be professionally maintained on an annual basis and how does this affect my insurance quote?
Different insurers may have different policies and processes, so it may be worth speaking to a few.
