Frontpoint’s monitoring price is much higher than Abode’s or SimpliSafe’s, but the system’s become more accessible since it requires no contract and offers a financing option. Equipment packages start at $99, with monitoring at $34.99 per month with our discounted SafeWise entry plan. If you choose to finance, you can get a Frontpoint system for as little as $10 a month.
The system also has a ton of equipment options like security cameras with motion detection and two-way audio, motion and contact sensors, and fire and carbon monoxide detectors. There are fewer options for home automation through Frontpoint, but the company does have a few gadgets like a video doorbell to make your home smarter.
Frontpoint relies primarily on cellular signals rather than Wi-Fi, so you get a steadier, more reliable connection. This wireless system approach is slightly different than its competitors.
And in case of an emergency, your wireless alarm system backup battery will last for 24 hours. Frontpoint also has backup monitoring centers if the nearest cell tower fails. So you’ll still be protected even if the cell signal fails. This strategy pays off because Frontpoint’s system can support up to 80 devices in your home.
Frontpoint has quality equipment and flexible payment options, but what really made this wireless security company stand out is the customer service. We love the low-pressure, friendly approach of the rep we spoke with. Plus, you can opt for a no-contract option for a little extra up front.
Frontpoint now has the Frontpoint ID Protect Powered by Allstate Identity Protection package too. This offering for new customers helps protect you from identity theft for no additional cost.
