Best Security Systems Reviews 2016
FrontPoint: #1 in Security Systems
Bottom Line: FrontPoint Security is a great company which offers excellent customer service with the best equipment and remote access. FrontPoint Security uses GE’s Simon XT Control Panel. All their systems are Wireless and have Cellular Monitoring. They have the least BBB complaints out of any major nationwide company. They do have some upfront costs but are still less than ADT or Vivint. Their customer service is the best from all accounts. Frontpoints sales people and technicians from our own experience contacting are patient, knowledgeable, and helpful. If you want to held by the hand as you install your own Security System. FrontPoint will be for you. I’ve spoken with their sales people and they are considerate, and attentive. Their contracts do not roll over. We believe Protect America is only a slightly better value. Based on up front and monthly monitoring cost. But only slightly. That is why Frontpoint is has four and a half stars instead of a perfect five.
Bottom Line: Protect America gives you a lot for your money. Their monitoring rates are very low, no equipment costs and plenty of sensors for most any home. They use GE’s Simon XT control panel. All systems offer one motion detector, at no cost, plus between 3 to 15 free door / window sensors depending on the package. Also they have no activation or connection fees. Nobody else gives you that much quality equipment at no cost.
Bottom Line: ADT is a bit overpriced and has a number of BBB complaints. In spite of this, I speak with customers who have been with them for years, without complaints. We think there are better companies for the price. But if you are familiar and comfortable with ADT, call them.
