One thing we like about Alder’s pricing is that a lot of basics are included in every package. You’re not charged extra for two-way voice, mobile app control, or video monitoring. You get the app no matter what and, if you add a camera to your setup, video monitoring is always included.
Once you get your quote, your price includes everything you need to take full advantage of your Alder alarm system. Other companies like ADT and SimpliSafe charge more if you want remote access through a mobile app, and it’s common practice for companies to upcharge for video monitoring.
The only way to find out if you can get the system you want for a price you like is to either call or submit an online request for a quote. That means you have to give Alder personal information before you can find out about pricing.
The expert guidance is especially helpful for people who want a little help identifying security vulnerabilities around the house. But we don’t like the barrier to price information.
To end on a high note—Alder has done away with credit checks. So you don’t need to worry about a hit to your credit report or missing out on security because of a lower score.
The good news is you don’t have to pay anything upfront to get Frontpoint in your home. With $0 down, you can enroll in an Affirm consumer financing plan that allows you to pay for your Frontpoint equipment monthly over the course of three months, six months, or 12 months, though you have to get a credit check to qualify. While the payment plans require small contracts, they don’t renew automatically and you can pay them off early.
If you decide to take the plunge and pay for all your equipment in one go, you can enjoy the monitoring service contract-free.
