Frontpoint is one of the best home security systems on the market today. They’re competing against the big names in home security and winning. It combines DIY home security systems with home automation and some of the highest-ranked customer service around to guard against both home intrusions and environmental damage. Frontpoint is known for its excellent customer service, transparent pricing, and features like DIY install that can save you time and money. Renters will love their 100% removable equipment, that means no drilling into walls, and no holes when you leave.
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.
This is where excellent customer service comes in handy. You don’t need to be a security wiz to install a Frontpoint system, because representatives can talk you through the installation. Your security system will be pre-configured for your home and comprised of GE security equipment with a 2-year warranty.
Outages can take down landline-connected security systems fast. But with cellular monitoring, you don’t need a landline at all, let alone have to rely on one, and you don’t even need the Internet (unless you want security cameras). And if your Internet and power both go out, a backup battery, battery-powered sensors, and cell signal keep you going.
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.
Some companies will charge you extra for fire, flood, and carbon monoxide monitoring. But Frontpoint has all of these Life Safety monitoring features covered at no extra cost. Sleep more comfortably knowing that Frontpoint has your back.
Frontpoint is our top choice for renters. When you move, you can move your system with you, and you won’t have to pull wires or fix holes all over your rental. This is a hard feature to find in today’s market.
