In August, we’ve rolled out a refresh of the Frontpoint mobile app, based on customer feedback! These updates make your experience simpler, smoother, and more convenient than ever before. The changes bring a fresh look and feel to the app, making it easier for you to navigate, control your devices, and stay connected to your security system and smart home.
Redesigned Main Menu for Effortless Navigation
The main menu has undergone a transformation that puts control right at your fingertips. It now resides at the bottom of the screen, ensuring easy access to essential menu tabs such as Home, Video, and Activity. This intuitive change allows you to seamlessly navigate throughout the app with a simple tap. Additionally, the navigation menu () has found its new home in the bottom right corner, making it even easier to access.
Empowerment through the Outdoor Camera Siren
We're excited to introduce a manually triggered siren on the Outdoor Camera. With this new capability, you can deter intruders from anywhere in real-time. Once activated, the camera’s loud siren, coupled with a flashing red LED, creates a powerful audio and visual deterrent. The siren can be manually turned on or off through the Frontpoint app or website with a simple tap.
Activity Menu Unveiled
We’d like to introduce you to the new "Activity" menu, an enhanced version of the “History” menu found in previous app versions.
