Their UL Listed, Five Diamond Certified monitoring station provides 24/7 protection against intrusion, medical and personal safety, fire and environmental hazards.

Frontpoint has elected to offer only fully  integrated cellular based communications technologies. This eliminates the possibility of defeating the system by disabling cable or landlines.

Additionally, the Interactive and Ultimate plans also include Geo Location Services which enable the system to automatically control functions and features based on your proximity to the system.

Pricing and Equipment

 

The standard control panel that is included in all Frontpoint systems  is the GE Simon XT, which offers 40 zones of protection, a 100 event history buffer and includes an integrated cellular communicator. The system  can be fully customized to meet individual needs and preferences.

The basic equipment package includes the control panel, 2 door/window sensors and a pet-friendly motion detector.

The Qolsys IQ 7″ touchscreen panel is now available as an upgrade for those who desire the very latest in technology and features….in a more modern an aesthetically pleasing form factor.It is fully compatible with the standard GE / Interlogix sensors and includes some unique capabilities such as:

  • Live weather reporting
  • Severe storm alerts
  • Still video capture

Also new is the Image Sensor which combines a motion detector with a still video capture which can text or e-mail photos through the Frontpoint Mobile App, when movement is detected.

 

Frontpoint Equipment Costs

 

Frontpoint Security prices and equipment costs depend on the length of the term of the agreement and home ownership.  Although renters do qualify (many companies are only available to homeowners) the best Frontpoint Security prices are based on a 3 year agreement- which includes a generous $300 equipment discount.

The cost of the Frontpoint security equipment add-ons  are extremely competitive, with door and window sensors starting at just $32.99. One of the newest available pieces of security equipment is the Image Sensor…which is a motion detector with a built in camera that captures an image, when motion is detected, and can store the image in the Qolsys IQ panel and send an e-mail alert notification-without having to subscribe to a video monitoring package.

The Frontpoint cost of the Image Sensor  is just $89. (no longer available)

Most of the equipment is provided by GE and meets the highest industry quality standards.

Frontpoint offers a wide variety of equipment- even offering outdoor and pan and tilt surveillance cameras.

Frontpoint Security Customer Service

 

Perhaps the single biggest differentiator may be Frontpoints’  commitment to providing superior customer service.

In addition to online videos, tutorial and e-books, they offer outstanding telephone, live chat and e-mail support.

The most impressive feature, however, is their 30 day, risk-free money-back trial.  This “no questions asked” policy even includes return shipping and requires no restocking fees.

Frontpoint Security Systems- Equipment

Frontpoint Security Review- Simon XT Equipment-Group-1

Control Panels 

 

Simon XT by Interlogix

The standard control panel offered by Frontpoint is ths GE Simon XT.  This  unit has been tried, tested and proven and has been an industry leader for providing  reliable performance. This 40 zone system has standard 2 way voice capability, with digital backlit display and voice annunciation.

It comes standard with cellular service for all Frontpoint monitoring packages and has Z-wave capabilities for all  home automation packages.

A solid unit with a proven track record..albeit somewhat outdated in appearance. Consequently, after exhaustive testing, Frontpoint introduced an optional panel upgrade to its lineup in 2015, the…

Qolsys IQ

This 7” touchscreen panel represents the next generation in home security security control panels.  Beneath the modern, elegant exterior is a powerhouse performance package. It houses Frontpoint Home Security Reviews -Qolsys IQ Panelmultiple cellular, wi-fi, Bluetooth and Z-Wave communication technologies to interface with a wide variety of sensors and incorporate all the latest technologies and features.

It even has a built in camera to capture images when the system is armed and disarmed…and can display photos and provide on screen weather forecasts and severe weather alerts when not in use.

Worried that this might be too complicated? It’s not.

All this technology is available with an intuitive and user friendly touchscreen interface that is as easy to use as the iPhone. And you don’t have to worry about it becoming obsolete as it gets updated right over the wireless internet connection.

You can get detailed pricing on all the components in our Frontpoint Security Cost article or by visiting the Frontpoint website.

Intrusion Protection

 

Frontpoint offers the usual standard array of door and window contacts, motion detectors and glass break detectors but they also offer some unique sensors that aren’t always available with other DIY alarm companies, such as:

  • Recessed Door Contacts- which are embedded in the door frame and hidden from view. Only slightly more expensive ($10) than standard sensors these may make sense in homes with wooden door frames where aesthetics is a priority.
  • Garage Door Sensors- Easy to mount directly on the garage door (they have an inclinometer that detects when an overhead door panel tilts to a 45 degree angle), they not only provide protection, but they can be programmed to remind you if you left the garage door opened.
  • Image Sensor- Another recent addition to the Frontpoint equipment lineup, this sensor combines a motion detector with a night vision still camera. When it detects movement, it will capture an image and store it or even send you the image through Frontpoint’s Mobile App!

Environmental and Life Safety

 

The Frontpoint Alarm System is designed to incorporate a full range of sensors to protect your family and your home.  The system can be upgrades to include professional grade smoke and heat detectors that use a combination of a rate of rise heat detector and a Frontpoint Review- Smoke Detectorphotoelectric chamber to detect drastic changes in temperature or the presence of smoke.

Unlike regular smoke detectors, this system will alert not only the occupants, but the authorities will automatically be notified, as well.

Carbon monoxide detectors can also be added to the system and monitored.

Water and Flood sensor can be placed in basements or laundry rooms to detect leaks or the presence of water and alert you to the potential for flooding and water damage. 

Home Automation

 

Z-Wave Thermostat and Door Locks–  The Frontpoint home automation system is compatible with a number of Z-Wave thermostats and door locks. These items are extremely popular in the modern day home security system.

The thermostats can provide substantial energy savings and homeowners enjoy the comfort and convenience of being able to control access through their security system or remotely through their Alarm.com App on a mobile device.

As these items are now readily available through local hardware stores and retailers, Frontpoint provides a list and recommendations for compatible thermostats and door locks.

Frontpoint Home Automation-Z-wave

Z-Wave Plug In Modules– plug in directly to standard wall receptacles and control attached lamps or appliances through the alarm system interface or the interactive services of Alarm.com.

 

 

Video Cameras

 

Frontpoint Home Scurity offers a full line up of security and surveillance cameras to meet a variety of needs:

 

Indoor Wireless Video Camera-

Frontpoint Security Reviews - Alarm.com's New HD Video Camera11.7.16 Update

Frontpoint Security is now offering (available 11.7.16) a wireless IP night vision camera which is specifically optimized for Alarm.com’s hosted video service. It has IR night vision capabilities to see 20′ in the dark and HD recording resolution up to 1280x800.

Weighing in at just 4.2 oz. and standing just under 3″s tall, this motion activated video camera is a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to its predecessor…and is available at the same price point- just $129.99.

Outdoor Wireless Video Camera-Frontpoint Equipment - Outdoor Wireless Video Camera

This camera is weather resistant (with a dust resistant housing and upgraded components) and has additional IR sensors to enhance night vision capabilities to 40’.

No Longer Available- Similar specs to the standard indoor camera, but with the capability to swivel 350 degrees and tilt 125 degrees.  This can be controlled remotely and enables the user to monitor and record a wider range of events. (no longer available through Frontpoint)

Is the Frontpoint System Easy to Install?

 

While all of the best DIY home security companies claim to be easy to install, I am sure that a large percentage of prospective buyers are somewhat skeptical of these claims.  Like many of you, I have taken on lots of do it yourself home projects and become frustrated and discouraged when I find instructions that were clearly translated from another language and spent hours on the phone with overseas call centers trying to unravel the mysteries of a project what was supposed to be as easy as 1,2,3.

My skepticism might have been even further complicated by my past experiences in the security industry.  Back in the mid to late 90’s, (yes, I am dating myself) I had been on numerous training “ride alongs” on which ADT installers were required to drill  holes and fish wires.

On more than one occasion,  I  learned some pretty creative profanity as seasoned professional technicians expressed their frustrations when things didn’t go smoothly. Sometimes they had to wait on hold for what felt like an eternity (45+ minutes or more) waiting to field test communication lines and activate systems…after having to enroll and program each individual sensor.

To dispel my concerns, the friendly folks at Frontpoint agreed to send me a Qolsys system to test out and see for myself just how easy (or difficult) it was to install and manage a comprehensive Frontpoint security system.

Thankfully, Frontpoint has everything down to a science, and  technology has improved.  Frontpoint technicians take care of 90% of the process before the system is packed up and shipped out.  I went through the entire process just like a new customer, so I would have first hand knowledge of the process from soup to nuts.

My test system arrived via Fedex at my front door 2 days after the order was placed…and I couldn’t be more impressed with what I found.

 

What’s in the Box?

 

Each of the components was clearly numbered, and was already programmed into the system.  It was carefully  boxed with custom packaging designed to protect all of the components. The branding and packaging was a clear indicator that this was a professional operation that pays close attention to every detail.

In addition to a variety of security and home automation components  the box  contained:

  1. QA Inspection Verification
  2. Frontpoint Quick Start Installation Guide
  3. One Page “cheat sheet”
  4. Yard Sign with 2 Piece Stake
  5. Window Stickers
  6. Quick Reference Refrigerate Magnet
  7. Extra Adhesive Pads for Components

Mounting instructions were clear and concise…with tech support and activation numbers listed if needed.

The system comes with all the components already programmed and “enrolled” in the system.  This is the most time consuming aspect of “installing” a system.  If you were to pay “professional installation” the majority of the time the installer is in the home involves enrolling and testing the system and activating and testing the cellular communication module.

All of these things are taken care of by the folks at Frontpoint- before it is shipped out.

All that was left for me was to mount the devices… and call in to activate!

Getting Set Up with Frontpoint

 

Each of the components are  are clearly marked and packaged in their own little custom inserts.  The Quick Start Guide is enclosed in its own compartment and is easy to understand and lists your temporary code and pass code listed on the inside cover.  It walks you through the mounting process of the various devices. The sensors are most easily mounted using the enclosed padded 3M mounting adhesives, which are surprisingly secure.

For those purists out there that want devices fastened to the walls, you would need to request mounting hardware, as none is provided on a standard system.

The Qolsys Control Panel can be either wall mounted or set up on the included desk mount.  It has already been equipped with the cellular antenna and the power supply was attached…so it literally just needs to be plugged in to a standard power outlet.

Once all the devices are mounted…one just need to call in to  “walk test” the system- to check that all the components are communicating properly.  This is very simple process…your Frontpoint representative will walk you through the entire process.

I spoke with “AJ” and he was friendly, professional, patient and knowledgeable.  The Qolsys panel is extremely intuitive and user friendly…and AJ gave me a thorough overview of system operation and had everything up, running, tested and activated- in about 15 minutes.

 

He also guided me through logging in on the Frontpoint web portal- where you can set up or change your password.

Managing your Frontpoint Security System with Alarm.com

 

OK…your Frontpoint Security System  is set up and active.  The Qolsys touchscreen control panel is very user friendly and a breeze to navigate….but, you want to be able to control your security and home automation system from anywhere.

Perhaps the most exciting innovation in the alarm industry over the past decade has been the development of mobile applications that allow you to monitor or manage your security and home automation system from an internet connection on your desktop computer,  tablet or mobile phone.

Alarm.com provides arguably the best platform on the planet to remotely control and manage your system.

 

Alarm.com Home Page

 

It is compatible with Windows and Windows Phones, Apple IOS, Apple Watch, Pebble, Android and Blackberry….and is very clearly laid out and simple to set up. You can customize Scenes (a series of events…such as turning on light when the system is armed) and set up notifications when events occur…such as arming and disarming the system.

Just download the Alarm.com App from Itunes or Google Play….enter in your Frontpoint credentials…and you can control you system from your desktop, a tablet or your mobile phone….anywhere in the world where you have access to the internet.

So…was I justified in my skepticism?  Absolutely not.

Installation of the  Frontpoint Security System was an absolute  breeze.

Frontpoint has streamlined the entire process and makes it so simple for anyone to feel the sense of satisfaction that comes from “installing” your own security system. They have it right down to a science.  One call and it’s done!

More importantly, it is also easy to operate.  The touchscreen has a very intuitive menu and icons that make it easy to navigate. And the Alarm.com  app makes it simple to control and customize the system while on the go.

But…don’t take my word for it…Frontpoint puts their money where their mouth is and offers a No Questions Asked, 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

Give them a call and put them to the test…You’ll be glad you did.

Is it critical to get a burglar alarm permit to install a Frontpoint Security system?

Is it critical to get a burglar alarm permit to install a Frontpoint Security system?

Since the Front point Security  system is being remotely monitored with the motive of making use of emergency response assistance, many local cities will require a permit.

Usually, this calls for standard enrollment in conjunction with your hometown law enforcement or sheriff’s dept along with some sort of manageable service fee. One will more than likely be instructed to produce the company name, address and phone number of Frontpoint, in addition to monitoring station, because two organisations happen to be different.

Where permits are necessary, the majority of towns will stipulate a one time cost to enroll an individual’s system, while some areas expect an annual renewal too. Regarding towns with high criminal offense or false alarm rates, failure to register could lead to a refusal to respond to locations that do not possess a security alarm permit…although this is somewhat uncommon.

Having said that, you may be subjected to some other fees in cases where law enforcement officials, fire as well as emergency medical services end up being dispatched to a address with no permit with regard to cities in instances where one is needed.

Regardless if a licence is normally obtained, a large percentage of towns will likely assess penalties when it comes to numerous false alarms. Our Frontpoint Security Reviews would be remiss if we didn’t mentions the fact that a large percentage of towns have got strategies in place wherein the initial 1-2 dispatches do not involve fines. And after which penalties and fees usually increase from $25-50 to your first enforceable offense…to $100-200 for succeeding repeat offenses.

That is why, it cannot be overemphasized that Frontpoint security system purchasers communicate with his / her area police department, find out what permits are necessary, get a detailed comprehension of the area policies and be certain that they consider compulsory basic steps to forestall false alarms.

Preventing False Alarms with Frontpoint

Ways to help Prevent False Alarms while using Frontpoint Security

As mentioned above, false alarms resulting from errors with your Frontpoint security euipment may well be not just a irritation, but might contribute to a genuine overload on your local police department as well as emergency services resources…. and could very well end up resulting in costly penalties or fees.

Most Frontpoint reviews don’t disclose the fact that the majority of calls generated by homes with Frontpoint security systems are due to false alarms. That is why, the vast majority of municipalities will charge homeowners significant fines when they exceed a selected amount false alarms.

To prevent this from happening to you, these are some recommendations to avoid problems with your Frontpoint alarm.
Following are a handful of guidelines to help you avoid of false alarms.
• Be sure everyone knows the right way to disarm the home security system. Your Frontpoint control panel will have a master passcode, together with a number of supplemental end user codes that may be programmed into the system. Be sure everyone knows his or her code as well as understands how to disarm the burglar alarm system.

• Ensure that everyone also is familiar with the security password. In the event of an alarm, the central monitoring station is going to, in most cases, contact your home and request the security password to confirm that the person responding is really a legitimate party. In the event of Frontpoint alarm, should the individual picking up the phone call not be able to furnish the correct password,  the authorities will likely to be sent.

• Make sure that all windows and doors are properly shut prior to setting the system. A door that is left a little bit ajar could very well be blown open while you are away from the home and set off the alarm. This is another good reason to include a Frontpoint camera in the system. This would enable you to remotely check in on your home and ascertain if there is a problem, before having the police notified.

• Make sure that all Frontpoint home security equipment is installed correctly and in the required places. The Frontpoint motion sensor must be mounted at a height of 6’ and also be clear of fans, heating elements, fireplace and air conditioning units.

• Pay attention to things that may very well set off a motion sensor. It’s not just pets. AC units might cause fluttering draperies or plants…even helium balloons which might be transported around the residence because of air currents. Ensure that they strapped down away from motions.

• Ideally, your pets ought to be confined to areas clear of motion detectors. Should this be simply not viable, you will find “pet friendly” or “pet immune” detectors which could screen out smaller pets below 40, 50 even 80 lbs. motion detectors can be set up to create pet alleys in which pets could move freely about. An additional choice is to employ glass break detectors in lieu of motion detectors.

• It is best to exchange batteries when required. Almost all security systems make use of Lithium Ion batteries which actually have at least a two year expected life expectancy. Your Frontpoint control panel will,  in most cases, notify you when the batteries are becoming low alert you with a Frontpoint low battery warning on both the control panel and your Frontpoint security app when there is roughly 1 month of effective life.

It advisable to have additional batteries around and remove and replace them right away. Your system will also warn you if there are various other troubles with sensors. Any time you get a system error warning, conduct a status check and check out the sensor. Get hold of Frontpoint Security customer service  if it looks like it’s malfunctioning.

Make sure that your Frontpoint user manuals/codes/passwords are in a protected specified location in which they could be checked as appropriate.

And remember,  the best way to avoid false alarms is by using your home security system regularly and make certain everyone is familiar with how to operate the system.

Frontpoint Security Reviews Praise Ease of Use

 

Frontpoint home security systems have advanced dramatically throughout the past few years.

One of the best things about advancements when it comes to technologies is that manufacturers place a substantial amount of emphasis on making the systems more user friendly.

Frontpoint recently introduced the Quolsys IQ which incorporates a slick touchscreen display screen user interface which is quite intuitive and guides anybody all the way through tasks like farming, disarming, bypassing areas etc..

The system is paired with the Frontpoint Security App, Alarm.com, their automated interactive smart phone app equipped with home automation capabilities that allow you to supervise your residence from anywhere on the planet with computer access.

Quite a few companies are even incorporating voice control functionality with the aid of their own equipment, Google Home or Alexa. These help you to complete most typical operations merely by giving some sort of voice instruction.

Although Frontpoint reviews are mostly quite positive, occasional Frontpoint reviews mentions issues with minor customer service or even billing problems, you will almost never see a Frontpoint review that will complain that the Qolsys system is difficult to operate.

    Do the recessed door sensors have less range then the standard sensors? Also, are they more reliable… I E Less falls alarms because the sensors fall off with the standard ones?

      Ryan,

      Good question, Ryan. Frontpoint Security Systems can be upgraded to include embedded door contacts upon request(for a small additional charge). The standard contacts can be mounted with either the heavy duty 3M tape, or they can be screwed in with included hardware to mount them even more securely. In my opinion, the real advantage of embedded sensors is a matter of aesthetics.
      The recessed sensors can be embedded in a wood framed door, so that sensor is completely concealed. The range may be marginally impacted…as transmission range listings typically assume a clear line of site. I have them in my home and have no issues, but that will depend on the size of your home and location of the sensors relative to the control panel.
      They require a bit more effort to install, but, if you are handy and the range is not an issue, they can be a nice enhancement. You may want to discuss the layout of your home, building materials and the location of the sensors with a Frontpoint rep before ordering.
