FrontPoint Security

We feel FrontPoint offers the best value for your money. They use the most current technology, and have the best customer service anywhere. They are the safest security company available for two reasons:

  • No stranger ever has to come into your home. No sales people will ever knock on your door. And you will never have to wait for an installer who is a stranger to you and your family.
  • They use 100% cellular monitoring which does not go through your IP address

We recommend FrontPoint to everyone shopping for home security systems. The company uses GE’s Simon XT all-in-one keypad control panel. Frontpoint security systems are 100% Cellular and Wireless. Their alarm systems are perfect for remote monitoring and impervious to power outages.

FrontPoint offers Free Shipping with a 30-Day Risk-Free Trial! I know of no other security company which offers a 30-Day Risk-Free Trial!  The systems are configurable to add multiple cameras and other features. GEO Services, Crash-and-Smash Protection, Fire Protection, Wireless Video, Home Automation, Instant Security Alerts and more are all available with Ultimate Monitoring. This is very important because.

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 helpfulIf 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.

ADT Home Security

ADT Security systems is a one of the most familiar home security companies in business today. Many people are comfortable and familiar with the brand. They offer basic Land-Line systems and cellular monitored systems with remote access. ADT Pulse offers remote access through smart phone apps. ADT’s prices are a bit higher than many security companies. What separates ADT from FrontPoint and Protect America? Professional technicians install all ADT systems. They are not DIY systems like FrontPoint or Protect America. ADT:

  • Offers Wireless and Hardwired systems.
  • Owns and operates  its own Five Diamonds Nationwide monitoring centers.
  • Offers a variety of alarm systems and plans
  • ADT Pulse Premier includes Cellular Monitoring, Remote Web and Mobile Access, Email & Test Alerts, QSP Warranty, and Six-Month Money Back Guarantee.


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.
