Have you checked out the home security systems reviews online? We're thrilled to receive so much customer love!

I ordered a system and had it set up in less than 30 minutes – sensors on my doors, windows, garage door and a smoke/fire sensor. I ordered 3 cameras and had them running on my wifi network in about an hour – I'm not a techie!

I compared 8 security systems including ADT, Front Point, and others and Front Point was by far the best and the cheapest.

The only time I needed the system for real was when the hose to the washing machine leaked and began to fill the basement. The flood sensor that I have on my system alerted me, and I was able to fix the leak before any damage was done.

I installed my FrontPoint Security system almost 2 years ago and I have not questioned my choice . When I have questions about the different options the customer service rep. has always been helpful and makes sure my questions are answered completely.

I've had my system a little over a year now. During that time I've had a couple of sensors replaced and the customer service department had them in the mail to me fast. The system is easy to install - I did my 2,800 SF home in about 20 min.

I am a new customer – just installed my alarm in April. Everyone – without exception – is wonderful. They are all polite and knowledgeable. My system arrived promptly and the order was exactly as I placed it. The sensors are very easy to install and the "heart" of the alarm is easy to use. They also provide key chain remote activators and they make it even easier to arm and disarm when leaving the house.

When I am out of town, I use FrontPoints's app for my iphone and ipad to take a look around the house and yard just to make sure everything is ok. I have my front door camera set up to notify me if someone walks past a certain point on my porch and I can quickly watch the video and save it if need be. Amazing!

This system is fantastic. Super easy to install, activation takes seconds, online monitoring and controls are amazing, customer service is great. I can monitor my doors, alarm settings and even turn my lights on and off from my cell phone! I sleep safe with this system!.

I got my system because three days before we were planning to go on vacation our neighbor's house was broken into. I called FrontPoint and they over-nighted our system to us for free. Had it installed in about 30 minutes and felt all better about leaving our house for vacation.

Ranshears

it's amazing how efficient the wireless sensors are... NONE of them have required new batteries in the 2 years I've had them. Even the main door and motion sensors, that are constantly having to send out signals. I think about 95% of sensor types are "supervised", so they tell the control panel (which then tells you) when the batteries are low... and I know the door/window and motions are among the supervised sensors.

UPDATE: This works very well. No I have not had an attempted break-in where the system prevented it from happening, why I say that this works well is because it has kept on working even when inadvertently unplugged and when our local phone service was interrupted for a couple of days.

I can watch the logs to see what areas the person goes into by what sensors are opened, even motion detectors, so I know where they go in the house. ...I have my system configured to send me emails/texts when the power goes out.

Bubbha

Every Monday through Friday at a fixed time I have my system send me an email and a text message if I forgot to arm the house and I can arm it from the internet or my iphone. If my son needs to come over while I am out, I can disarm the system from my iphone or the internet just to make sure he does not accidentally trigger the alarm. I can have the system text or email me if the garage or back door is left open after a certain time at night.

When I spoke to the rep from FrontPoint, I wasn't given any kind of hard sell or told that I'd have to wait weeks for an installer to be available. I just got the simple facts so that I could make an informed decision.

Their systems are easy to self install and easy to use. If you do have issues they have wonderful technical support... Web interface is amazing and detailed. Options such as glass break, motion sensor, carbon dioxide, water, outdoor and indoor cams, etc.

Their customer service is excellent...! Anytime I have a problem, I just call and they are very thorough and patient with me. This is the BEST system out there!

The equipment, which is made by GE, arrived 3 days later, and I installed it myself in about 30 minutes. It is all wireless, so there are no problems with running lines or drilling cable paths. After the equipment was installed I called the FrontPoint office and in a few minutes the system and monitoring were activated.

Use them! Easy to set up, extend, cost reasonable (our monthly cost dropped by changing to them, and we have a better security system used more regularly!).

FrontPoint's interactive monitoring system and service is great overall for paranoid geeks and iPhone/Blackberry/Droid yuppies. We bought this alarm system to protect our home and ourselves.

Linkwad

OK so I used to travel a lot and my wife wanted to be sure that we had an alarm for the house while I was away.

The boxes showed up quickly... I followed the instructions (un tape a sensor and stick it somewhere, then plug in the main base, that is it) The video monitoring was a little trickier because of my firewalls, but again I followed the instructions and that worked. I then called frontpoint and thy verified that I was all set. I played with it, showing videos of my kids on the iphone stuff like that, I enjoyed watching them get there bed time stories when I was on the road. But then one day I had a fire, yep a real fire and we all went out side the fire department was at my house within 5 minutes, Front point started calling me right away and emailing and texting etc. well once the fire was over I called the insurance company and they wanted proof of the fire so I just emailed them the video, case closed.

The system arrived promptly as promised. The same guys I spoke with before ordering were available to answer my questions about the system and the monitoring agreement. Their equipment is easy to set up (they do not charge extra for step-by-step, real-time, on-the-phone technical assistance with the equipment set-up process, even though I used the diy option).

I am a New York City Firefighter. I researched systems for weeks, had in house sales pitches, and realized that dealing with other security system company's was like dealing with a new car salesman. I was so lost, and sad...UNTIL I stumbled upon FrontPoint Security!!!

I purchased the Front Point Security system, it is such a great peace of mind when I go to bed or leave the house, the prices are reasonable and they are so nice to talk to, very helpful. Anyone wanting to secure their home should give them a call. I think they are great. I saw the ad on my computer and called them, and my system arrived in no time, you can put it on the wall or on the stand, works great.

My wife and I have been a Front Point customer for over 3 years. We have a SIMON XT system. ...Overall, I must say that the system works very well once you get pass the installation process. Monitoring service does thier job very well also. Because I had a job as a technical support person years ago I gave them FOUR stars.

Front Point has delivered from day one with quick delivery of the hardware and quick setup in our home. The FP staff was knowledgeable about each item and were able to make suggestions on how to create a custom plan for securing our home. When we moved recently, the entire system came down in a few moments and we took it with us to our new home...this was great! We simply notified FP of the change and we were good to go! The price point is good and going wireless gives us peace of mind. Finally, we love the FP application that works with our iPhone. Good stuff.

We got FrontPoint after a burglary. My husband and I now have peace of mind when we leave the house. The service has been great and affordable. We have continued to add more devices to our system, like flood monitoring.

I've had a FrontPoint Security system for almost 2 years. Works great, easy to set up. I really like the option to activate and de-active the system with my phone or over the internet. Love the piece of mind when I'm out of town. And considering I live in the country it was an affordable alternative to other systems, most of which would not even consider installation. Customer service has always been great and I've been able to contact them through FB or by phone with immediate answers. Highly recommend.

I wanted a system that was based on a wireless system because I use the internet for my landline. I wanted a security system for my family that I can set up myself. I did not want strangers installing things without my knowing where and what not. I enjoy the easy-to-use system and the comfort it adds to the family. It is not expensive as other monitoring services. Good service and easy to use.

Having sold home alarms in the past, I know the problems in the contracts with using the big firms you see advertised on TV: you never own their alarm and you can't get rid of them when you move. We wanted to avoid that legal trap and their expensive installations. FrontPoint gave us all that we wanted at a good price. We get an insurance discount and we can control the system from our iPhones. It is great to login and verify that no one has been in the house when I am gone.

I always wanted to get security system for my home so that we can go to sleep everynight worry free. Front Point Security is so awesome because we can turn on and off from anywhere in the united states with my iphone! And also we can even see the history of each time the door has been open/closed by certain people.. very simple to use. Highly recommended. Have very good customer service.

I've had a FrontPoint system for nearly a year. I can't say enough good things; first off, customer service is excellent. They are extremely responsive and helpful. Second, and most important, the system works great. I love that I can access all the information from my iPhone. I can arm the system, monitor my Zwave thermostat, turn lights on and off, and watch the security camera. We moved temporarily for work for 6 months, and the system gave us piece of mind that our house was in good hands!

Rtnichols

We decided on FrontPoint for a couple of reasons. First, I couldn't find a negative review anywhere, except people who wanted out of a contract they had agreed on. Second, FrontPoint offered a system that was wireless, so that we could install it and didn't need someone to do the install for us. Third, the system is cellular based with battery back up, so if the power is out or the phone lines are down, we are still protected.

SeaweedsLady

I happened upon this little gem of a company called FrontPoint Security Solutions based in McLean, VA (but providing service nationwide).

The following combined points are what set FrontPoint apart from "the rest", in rough order of importance:

  1. CUSTOMER SERVICE: I have very rarely, if ever, received such consistently excellent customer service. Everyone at Frontpoint has always bent over backwards to accommodate my needs in a fast, professional, and friendly manner.
  2. WIRELESS COMMUNICATION TO THE CENTRAL STATION: All FrontPoint security systems communicate to the central monitoring station using a wireless cellular communication channel. And all the sensors (except the CO detector) run on batteries, and the control panel itself has a 24 hour battery backup, so even if someone cuts the power, it won't help them break in.
  3. FRONTPOINT'S INTERACTIVE MONITORING USES ALARM.COM They partnered with GE to build their technology from the ground up and tightly integrate it into the software and hardware of the control panel. This is an enormous differentiator.
  4. WAY IN WHICH FRONTPOINT SYSTEMS IMPLEMENT ALARM-PENDING FrontPoint's Interactive Monitoring plan: an intruder has all of about 5 seconds to locate & destroy the control panel from the time any sensor is tripped REGARDLESS if the system is still in entry delay state or not! *This is actual security*, not just perceived security. Another huge differentiator.

We've been very pleased with FrontPoint's attention to detail, applications for remote use and solid customer service. They certainly improve or quality of life as we worry less about our security.

Alex G

It is difficult to think of a company that I love more than FrontPoint. Some highlights:

  • Awesome customer service, staffed by normal, smart, friendly people, not the disengaged types you often encounter elsewhere.
  • I can turn my alarm on or off from anywhere -- when I'm at a friend's, when I'm upstairs in bed, when I'm out of the country.
  • I can assign different people different codes, and then I can check online to see what activity has been associated with their code, in case I'm suspicious that they're up to no good.
  • It runs on some crazy former military communications line or something, rather than a phone line or traditional wires. So it's never down.

Alison G

Since I started traveling for work I decided I needed a security system for my home which is in a somewhat isolated country setting.

I setup a FrontPoint security system on my home back in the Summer of 2009. The systems are wireless and are very easy to setup. I ordered sensors for all doors and windows, a glass break sensor for the living room sliding glass door and several outdoor motion detectors. It took about an hour to setup and test and everything worked great right from the start. They configure all of your components and then mail all the equipment to you to set in place.

The Internet interface is real cool. I have an app for my iPhone to arm and disarm remotely.

B B
Yelp

These are the reasons we picked FrontPoint Security and the reasons that we have been extremely pleased with them ever since.

  • WIRELESS EQUIPMENT: This means that you can take your equipment with you wherever you go if you move, and more importantly that it can not be dismantled by an intruder simply from cutting the cord, or cutting the power.
  • HIGH-TECH: There are tons of add-ons that you can add to your system including motion sensors, garage door sensors, glass break sensor, flood sensor, heat sensor, freeze sensor, smoke detector, CO2 sensor, etc. etc. and of course the cameras!
  • MONITORING: You can log-on online to check your status, history, and arm or disarm your alarm from anywhere. There are also apps for Android & IPhone
  • BEST RESPONSE COMPANY: The system is very unique in that it sends out a pending alarm first so that when you have a false alarm you have time to disarm it yourself.

I would *NEVER* and I repeat *NEVER* use one of those crappy "security" systems like ADT ---- FrontPoint all the way..!! :)

Since I started I love Frontpoint! ...We weren't really happy with our security company as the alarm had gone off, and when we told them to call the police, they were rude and didn't. ...Frontpoint offers garage door monitors, on top of the regular window/door, motion and glass breaking sensors. Now we're alerted if the garage door is open after a certain hour and if open for too long of time. I love this alert as well as the alerts you can set up to tell you if you forgot to set your alarm. It's easy to arm it from any computer or smartphone.

C K

Easy to set up, and unlike some of the app store reviews for http://alarm.com, I've never had a problem arming and disarming my system from my iPhone. Overall, very pleased.

Only drawback is cosmetic-- unlike professionally installed control panels, this one is plug-in and the cord is visible. Other than that, it's great to be able to set up the system yourself in minutes.

Very helpful customer service.

Carrie C

This system is fantastic. I have an iPhone and being able to arm/disarm the system from my phone is a big deal. Since you can check on your house from anywhere, whenever I wonder if I forgot to turn on the system, I can just check the app!

Disclosure: I don't have the system yet (just ordered today). I will definitely edit this review once I get my system, but I had to give them a 5 rating for the sheer awesomeness of their customer service! It's so refreshing to communicate with competent sales people over the phone. And... they offered me discounts and contract enhancements without me even asking for them. Definitely worth a look. At the very least call and you talk to someone nice for a change (ahem Comcast)

Eugene P

I have been using FrontPoint for about 2 years now - I purchased the system because of the excellent presentation by telephone sales - and at first was hesitant to use it. I had never needed an alarm system and felt it was too complicated. Well it wasn't, and and after I started using it, I felt confident and now it has become a habit to set the alarm each and every time I leave the house for any length of time, and in the evening before we close up for the night. I recommend this as your home security system.

Francesca A
Yelp

We've been really pleased with Frontpoint. We've had our system for about six months and have found it reliable, easy to use, and solid peace of mind. I installed it in under an hour (we have a lot of sensors). I love to be able to pull up video of our house on my iPhone while I'm at work. It's nice to see what our dog is up to, and comforting to see that no one is in the house. Great interactive website for Fronpoint customers, too. They also seem to making their interface better all the time.

I also think it's essential to have the smoke detectors that are linked to the control center. I'm not sure whether a fire or a burglary is more likely, but nice to know we're covered for both.

I really can't imagine going with a company whose technology is behind Frontpoint's. What a great company.

Ingrid G

My Wife and I bought a new house in a working-class neighborhood in Denver and about 2 months after move-in, our house was robbed. What a disgusting feeling.

Reactively, I called ADT and had their salesman come out and preach his gospel--after doing some online research and seeing the reviews for FrontPoint, I decided to go with their service.

Install was super easy and I have since upgraded to video cameras and sensored my garage doors. I 'installed' the control panel on a media cabinet we have and it looks great (this way no wires are dangling down).

Jack H

I've used FrontPoint now for a year. I'll be brief, because others have been so comprehensive. The system rocks. It's stable, reliable and a breeze to self-install and manage, via the Internet, my iPhone, or the system panel. And it's easy to expand.

Frontpoint customer service is excellent, before and after the sale. I've never had a false alarm or a product (or component) failure.

Jimmy J
Yelp

The price is right (at least for us). It's cheaper than major alarm companies in our area if you sign a 3-year contract. FrontPoint's own customer service center seems well-staffed too. I never had to wait more than a minute for a human representative to talk to me.

Lum P

I purchased the frontpoint system about eight months ago and have been absolutely 100% satisfied since I first opened the box. The system is very easy to self-install and the customer service agents have been nothing but professional and extremely knowledgeable. The security of my wife, my daughter and our home is a high priority to me and the cellular based system that Frontpoint provides instead of the hard wired systems that can just be cut which then renders your system useless was a big draw for me to purchase the system.

Matt T
Yelp

My first thought when I bought my new place is that I needed to install an alarm not only to protect my valuables, but also my animals and family; so I aimlessly looked around at all the different alarm companies in the market. I found alarm companies that offered this and that, that ranged in prices from very cheap to very expensive, alarms that required no phone line, alarms that worked on smartphones, etc... Finally I was reading some reviews online at http://alarm.com when I found FrontPoint security; this peaked my interest and I really wanted to know more. First I read all the reviews on http://alarm.com about FrontPoint security, then I turned to Yelp and was very pleased...

Michael B

After we went cell phone only and ditched our landline, we looked for an alarm system that worked without a landline. Sure, there are systems that work over IP, but the cell technology Frontpoint uses seems more reliable to me. I LOVE the iPhone app. Before then, I used the mobile site regularly. I love that I can disable/enable the alarm remotely. Perfect for people who have a key but may not need in very often without your approval. Frontpoint is a perfect solution for us!

Michael J
Yelp

I purchased the system for installation in my mother's home to provide both home security and a wearable fob

...The website and online setup was amazingly simple. The support from the company has been nothing short of superior - I requested extra two-sided stickies, and they arrived in two days. We've tested the system (to make my mother comfortable about what would happen if she actaully pressed the button)....

I can configure emails however I want ... MUCH better than any of the competitors. Oh ... and I especially loved when I got an email that told me her power went out during the recent storm. I called her immediately to ask if she was OK.

Mitch C
Yelp

After working out a deal with FrontPoint that extended our initial money-back guarantee period, we purchased a cell signal booster FrontPoint recommended. The setup was easy and sure enough, it provided the strong and stable cellular signal the control panel needed to connect to FrontPoint monitoring. Working this out with FrontPoint was easy and they were very accomodating. They worked pretty hard to make sure we were satisfied with the system.

FrontPoint has been my Security Provider for 4 years and has worked flawlessly. They have excellent customer service. The backup on our base station went out and they sent us one for free. Very helpful and patient staff.

Steve D

To continue my love affair with FrontPoint, let me point out another situation where FrontPoint is outstanding: moving. My wife and I recently moved into a new home, and transferring the system could not have been easier. To move, all I had to do was unplug my control panel and remove the individual sensors from the doors and windows of my old house. When I got to our new place, I placed the sensors in their proper locations, added a few new devices (the new place is larger w/ more windows), and placed a call to activate everything.

Ty D
Yelp

We originally wanted to go with ADT, but after they dropped the ball with their estimate, we decided to go with a DIY service. FrontPoint is very simple and to the point. They basically mail you a box full of wireless sensors which you place all over your house. You then call up and activate with them, and voila, you're being monitored.

One of the best parts of the FrontPoint service is that your system is completely customizable. Need 40 windows covered? No problem. Want to put a flood sensor if you're in a low lying area? They have a sensor for that too. You can even add extra main panels if you need.

I also like the online and mobile monitoring. You can basically arm or disarm your system from anywhere, and even see when doors were open and closed. Pretty cool stuff.

In the end, these guys are very reliable, cheaper than ADT, and when we needed help, they were right there giving awesome customer service on the phone. Top notch!

After analyzing all the different Security companies, Front Point was the one that stood out the most for me. I like the wireless option and the set up was very simple and easy to work with. When I call, there's hardly a wait and I looked at BBB first and saw they were rated well (unlike some of the local companies). So far so good, and I like the option of accessing the alarm system online as well.

Jennifer

After a great deal of research, I chose this alarm system for their cellular equipment, central monitoring station, and customer service. The equipment and monitoring station is among the best out there. It is very easy to set up yourself, but their representatives are available if you have any questions. Their customer service has been excellent, and I wish that more organizations would follow suit!!

LisaF

Very easy set up and great customer support. You get to talk to a real person right away and they are very courteous and helpful. Had it installed in no time and now feel safe and secure. Plus, if we move, we can bring it with us. No phone lines involved in the monitoring so nobody can disable the alarm and the back-up battery last a long time in case of a power outage. Really like the ability to check, arm and disarm from my mobile phone too.

MarkW

Frontpoint is tops. After much research I signed them up and installed the system myself--all wireless so it was easy. I can view my home security cameras on my phone or computer from anywhere in the world. One camera even caught my wife sleepwalking one night, so I used the recorded video clip to prove to her that she was sleepwalking: thank goodness our Frontpoint system was on so the alarm went off when she sleepwalked through the front door at midnight last week.

We chose FrontPoint because it was the least expensive way that we could find to get what we wanted from a security system. We liked the system so much I even convinced my boss to get Front Point at his house and he loves it too.
