To protect residents and consumers, many states regulate their industries with licensing rules. The home security industry is no exception. FrontPoint works directly with every state in the U.S., and countless municipalities, to comply with all licensing guidelines and regulations. Our aim is to be the single most compliant alarm services provider in the nation.

Since every state has different laws, FrontPoint adapts our licensing policy accordingly. Our license status varies with each state, but will meet one of the criteria below. Check out the details for your state by using the drop-down menu in our U.S. map.

  • License: FrontPoint currently holds one or more state alarm licenses. If this is the case in your state, the specific license number is shown on your individual state page.
  • Exemption:States may have a variety of reasons for exempting FrontPoint from the licensing requirement. The exemption may be based on the reliability and simplicity of our systems, or on our customer-friendly method for providing home security and peace of mind. In some cases we don't need a license simply because we don't have offices in that state. Bottom line: FrontPoint is licensed in every jurisdiction where it's required.
  • No State Licensing: Some states currently have no alarm licensing requirements.

If you're interested in the specific licensing situation in your state, please contact us at (855) 873-5597, or email us at permits[at] We'll be happy to answer your questions, and even send you a copy of our license, where relevant.


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.

You can set up customizable alarm pin numbers for EACH person that has access to your house — you can disable any of these codes without interrupting your own, or without having to redistribute access to other people.
