Frontpoint Price Breakdown

When considering the best home alarm system for your family’s needs, consider whether you need security cameras, remote access, and other features, then determine what is needed in order to make you and your family feel secure. Security cameras are a must if you want to know what is going on within your home at any time, and may be necessary in order to prove your case if your burglary ends up in court.

So how much does Frontpoint© cost? Here is a breakdown of their most important deals and packages so that you can decide for yourself which package is best for your needs

Cost of Frontpoint Home Security Packages

For Monthly Monitoring, Frontpoint offers 2 packages: Interactive Monitoring and Ultimate Monitoring. The one you purchase will be dependent upon the amount of surveillance you think you need and whether you think cameras are an essential element of this.

Basic Interactive Monitoring Package, $44.99/month

With this package you get:

  • Alerts for intrusion (attempted burglary), fire, flood, carbon monoxide (CO), life, and safety at any time they occur
  • Crash and smash protection
  • Mobile alerts to your smartphone or device
  • Geo services
  • Customized notifications
  • Light control

This package covers the basics of home monitoring but does not offer the option of wireless video or home automation. Home automation is an added plus, but some homeowners do not feel it is necessary in order to feel secure in their home, so they opt for the standard package.

Ultimate Monitoring Package, $49.99/month

With this package you get:

  • Intrusion, fire, flood, CO, life and safety monitoring
  • Crash and smash protection
  • Mobile alerts
  • Geo services
  • Customized notifications
  • Light control
  • Wireless video
  • Home automation

This upgraded protection offers security video added, plus home automation and more convenience for the mobile user to access it on the go. And it’s only $5 more per month. So for many, it’s worth the extra small added cost for the pay-off of more security in the long-run.

Security Equipment Costs

For your home security alarm system equipment, Frontpoint offers three packages:

Standard System:

  • Includes 1 wireless control panel with cell uplink
  • 1 keychain remote
  • 1 yard sign and 5 window decals
  • 2 wireless door and window sensors

Total cost: $99
This basic security package covers remote key access, wireless door and window sensors to alert you the second an attempted entry occurs, and warning signs for the yard, to warn potential criminals.

Enhanced Sytem:

  • 1 wireless control panel with cell uplink
  • 2 wireless door and window sensors
  • 1 wireless motion sensor
  • 1 smoke/heat detector
  • 1 keychain remote
  • yard sign with window decals

Total cost: $164
This package offers an upgrade from the standard coverage and adds smoke and heat detectors for fire.

Light System:

  • 1 wireless control panel with cell uplink
  • 2 wireless door/window sensors
  • 1 wireless motion sensors
  • 2 wireless light controls
  • 1 keychain remote
  • 1 yard sign with 5 window decals

Total cost: $199
For full protection in your security system, this package adds wireless motion detectors and 2 wireless light controls, so that you can give the illusion of being home when you are not, or use this as a timing mechanism to thwart potential thieves.

The cost of Frontpoint home security is affordable and much more conservative than the large, more established home security companies, in general, dollar for dollar. By increasing your protection with one of the upgraded packages, you come close to obtaining what the higher-end security system companies offer in their highest packages. It is recommended that you opt in to the Ultimate Monitoring Package for $49.99 when choosing your monitoring package if you want video monitoring (highly recommended). Video monitoring would be very important if you needed evidence of intrusion for a court case or felt the need to monitoring your home activity while away. Otherwise, just study the subtle differences between the packages and decide what is most important to you for your family’s protection and peace of mind.
