Top 5 things to keep in mind when choosing the right security system


How it works

How do security systems work? It’s pretty simple. Systems have sensors standing by to react to specific events. If a window breaks, or a door opens, these sensors send a signal to the Control Panel. The Control Panel then signals the monitoring center, which dispatches fire or police, as needed.

With a Frontpoint system, all sensors are completely wireless. It doesn’t depend on a landline, so even if your phone lines are down, you can still be alerted instantly if one of the sensors is activated. Your system is professionally monitored 24/7, so whether you have a fire, flood or medical emergency, we’re always watching out for you.


How to know you've got the right system

Let’s face it. Bad guys are clever. But you can outsmart them if you have the latest and safest technology. That’s why we always offer products that feature important security advances to keep you as safe as possible. Our cellular technology ensures signals get through, even if the bad guys cut your phone lines. We use the highest quality GE Security equipment that comes with a three-year warranty. Our Control Panel guards against damage and power failures, so you're always protected.


No technician required

Frontpoint systems are designed to be simple and convenient to set up without the need for a technician to visit your home. In about 30 minutes, you can set up your system on your own schedule. Setup takes just three simple steps:

  • Step 1 – Plug in the Control Panel
  • Step 2 – Apply sensors
  • Step 3 – Call to activate
Your Frontpoint system arrives pre-configured for your home. After our activation team confirms your equipment is working perfectly, they'll walk you through the simple operating instructions. No appointments, no complicated installation, no wires or holes to drill around your home. Plus, you can expand your system as needed and even take it with you when you move.


Stay in the know

Frontpoint systems make it easy for you to be on the go while your home stays secure. You can access and control your Frontpoint system from any connected device, like a laptop or smartphone. Email and text alerts provide instant updates on any security-related activity. Even better, Frontpoint also offers live video, so you can check your house anytime, from anywhere.


No hidden fees

A lot of other companies charge for every little thing – from installation, to activation and cellular monitoring. At Frontpoint we don’t do hidden fees. We believe pricing should be simple and upfront. Know what you’re getting and what it will cost. Pretty simple. We won’t even charge you for shipping!
