Our Expert Opinion

“Frontpoint’s basic package is one of the least desirable in terms of the protection you get. Their package consists of only 2 door and window sensors and 1 motion detector which is excellent protection for your garage – but not your home. In comparison, we provide 6 door/window sensors and 1 motion detector. To make matters worse, Front Point charges you $100 higher up-front cost for less equipment. We know…it doesn’t make sense to us either!

The $2 per month savings on monitoring doesn’t quite bridge the gap (for getting less equipment) and neither will the short 30-day warranty. If something breaks after 30 days, you’ll have to cough up the cost of the repair from your own pocket.

With the high up-front cost, you might expect to have your system from Frontpoint installed by a pro, but that’s not the case. You have to install it yourself. DIY is a bad idea when it comes to home security (you can read why in our review of ADT vs. Protect America).

You can probably see, we don’t feel very excited about the value of the Frontpoint package compared to ours.
