Frontpoint is recognized in the industry for their excellent customer service. They also offer features that are great for renters—think 100% wireless and removable equipment—making it easy to take your system with you if you move.
With Frontpoint security Interactive and Ultimate plans, you can control your security system from any smartphone or web-enabled device. You can access your security system, alarm history, and visitor activity. You can also set up custom alerts that suit your needs, and remotely control your thermostat, lighting, and security cameras.
With Frontpoint security, you install your system yourself—but don't worry, you don't have to be MacGyver. There aren't any wires and it only takes about 30 minutes to set up. A Frontpoint activation representative will walk you through the process over the phone, so it's pretty foolproof. Your security system will be pre-configured for your home and comprised of GE security equipment with a 2-year warranty.
All Frontpoint home security systems are 100% wireless because the control panel communicates with the monitoring center through a cellular uplink. This means there's no drilling into your walls and no wires for an intruder to cut. With Frontpoint, you don't even need a landline phone to communicate with monitoring centers. You can stick to your cell phone or communicate through smoke signals. Either way, it doesn't affect your security.
Frontpoint home security gives you options. You can sign up for either a 12-month or a 36-month agreement. When you sign a 36-month agreement, you instantly save $300 on your security system. If you shy away from commitment and decide a 12-month agreement is for you, you can save up to $25 on your security system.
There are no installation or activation fees—you simply pay for your security system and your monitoring package. Your security system will even be shipped to you, free of charge. You own your security system, so you take it with you when you move, and you can add more components any time. Frontpoint even offers a 30-Day Risk-Free Trial, so if you're not quite sure if it is the right choice, you can return it no questions asked. They even pay for the return shipping.
With other companies, you often pay extra for fire, flood, carbon monoxide, or life safety monitoring. All Frontpoint security systems include monitoring for security, fire, flood, carbon monoxide, and life safety emergencies. If only the systems could tell you when your mother-in-law was coming over, you'd be completely covered.

Unlike other reviewers, I found the install to be extremely easy. I appreciate the fact that motion detectors use Command quick release adhesives that will safeguard my walls if I ever decide to move them or repaint the rooms. I have spoken to about four representatives for various inquiries to date and I have found all of them to be very professional and thoroughly trained in all aspects of the product. I can recommend this system highly at this early stage of my contract.
Seems to be doing an adequate job. Occasionally when i call I get someone who is rather snippy but most are nice.
Had my system for about 12months and like it so far. When I ordered my equipment they sent a wrong sensor but quickly sent me out the right one. Quick response when alarm triggered and for tech support. Can't complain about much other then I wished they offered more automation as far as camera selections and microphones to hear and see what's going on in the house.
