Installing my Frontpoint system was very easy. The instructions were good. Frontpoint also has a topnotch customer service. Anytime that I’ve had to call, they’ve been really, really good. I would recommend them.
Glad to hear your installation went so smoothly!
My brother passed away and it wasn't two weeks later when word got around the neighborhood. The neighborhood has gone down through the years and two guys broke in the house. My sister went online, investigated home securities, and saw what the comments and ratings were on everyone. We liked Frontpoint's price and my sister signed up with them. I'm in Pooler which is out of Savannah and my sister is in Cornelia, Georgia which is four hours away and we're both on the call list. The guys who broke into the house wanted to go back for a second trip but by then I already had the Frontpoint security system there and it got them. They had priors, got indicted, and are in jail now. We've had a really good experience with Frontpoint and I do appreciate it. Everything's worked out great and the house is still whole just locked up with the security system.
We're so happy to hear that your system worked exactly how you needed it to and that the burglar was caught! Thanks so much for sharing your story with us and please let us know if there is anything we can ever do for you going forward.
I've been with Frontpoint for two years. Installation of the system was surprisingly easy. I just read the instructions and did what it says. I didn't have any issues whatsoever. I use their app quite frequently. It's very nice when I'm out and use the app to make sure that the system is armed. I haven't received any alerts though. Maybe that's something that needs to be set up.
The Frontpoint people I've dealt with have been extremely professional, friendly, and easy to deal with when there were a couple of questions that I had about the system early on. I also had to call sometimes regarding my monthly payments, as their website doesn't offer a way to modify that and my credit card situation has changed. All in all, they've been very helpful, polite, and right on the ball.
With Frontpoint, there's a feeling that I have that once I'm in for the night and the system's armed, I don't have to worry. Thank God we haven't had any incidents, but having it's a comfort, especially now that I do travel quite a bit. Sometimes I'm gone a month at a time and it's nice to know that the system is secure, and I can monitor it from wherever I might be. Frontpoint just works.
It's great to hear that your system is working exactly how you need it to! Thanks so much for sharing your experience and please let us know if you ever need anything in the future.
My previous provider didn't service my area and Frontpoint had higher reviews when I looked at them, so I thought I'd give them a shot. I have Frontpoint for about a year now. I've also used their mobile app and it's pretty easy to access and control your system on the go.
That mobile app is definitely easy to use and super helpful isn't it? Thanks for being a part of our family and always remember that we are just a phone call away if you ever need anything.
Everything is fine with Frontpoint. It's okay.
Glad to see you're doing alright, and if you ever need anything please just let us know. You're family to us and we will always treat you that way!
They have high ratings online so I figured I should go with them. I've been with them for 6mos. now. Installation was very easy. I called them a few times and they helped me with it. I still have some struggles though with the motion detectors. But other than that it's pretty straightforward. Their mobile app works well and when they hear the alarm they trace everything.
We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying your system! You do mention having some trouble with that motion sensor so we are going to have one of our Support Specialists reach out to you shortly to help you. Thanks so much for sharing your experience and we look forward to speaking with you soon!
I've been with Frontpoint for 6 months. The experience has been simple so far. I use the mobile app all the time. It’s good to have and was the only reason why I got it. It’s peace of mind.
It's great to see that you are loving that smartphone app which allows you to have that peace of mind you deserve knowing you and your home are safe! Thanks so much for sharing your experience and always remember that we are just a phone call away if you ever need anything.
It doesn't take me a long time to install it. I'm just not sure if it's really working lol because I've never had any false alarm like with the other system that I used before and I haven't got any call from Frontpoint either. But so far so good. I haven’t had any problem with the alarm system.
Glad to hear that you're enjoying your system! Thanks for sharing your experience and always remember, we are just a phone call if you ever have any questions about your system.

We did not know anybody who had Frontpoint but my daughter helped me get it. I don't have any issues and so I'm liking it so far. Any issues that I had, I called and I got my answer so it was squared away. I've used the mobile app on my phone and the website and I love it.
We're so happy to hear that you have received all the help you have needed and that you are loving that smartphone app! Thanks for being a part of our family and please let us know if you ever need anything in the future.
I was searching online and Frontpoint was listed the best among some of the better home protection security systems. The system was easy to install, and they tested it to see if it works and it does. The mobile app isn't the best there is because it seems to be a generic app only but it works. I don't have any problems with it so far and I've recommended it to a couple of people already.
Thanks so much for the great recommendation!
I've had Frontpoint now for about 5 months and installing the service was simple. The mobile app is all I use. Being able to access and control my system on the go is great, being on the road and driving away. When I forget to disarm it when I get home, the service team calls me, I haven't had to call them. And they are always nice whenever I call them and are able to answer my questions. From where I live I'm more concerned about the wild game than I am about the people. I haven't had them long enough but I'm pretty happy with it.
It's great to hear that you are enjoying your system and getting a lot of use out of that smartphone app! Thanks so much for sharing your experience and please let us know if you ever have any questions or ever need anything going forward.
We went with Frontpoint because they were 100% cellular. It's great and easy to install. We're happy with it.
We're glad to hear that our cellular technology is perfect for all your security needs!
I’m very proud of Frontpoint. I have two security systems from them. It was pretty easy to install. I like it and it works out. Their people are on every time. Since having them, we had a burglar two times and we caught them because of Frontpoint. I want to put a wireless camera in my house. We have an old 1880 stone house. So I do not like to tear a hole through the wall. So I'm trying to seek a more efficient wireless camera but it’s pretty expensive.
We are sorry to hear about those break ins though we are so happy to see that your systems worked exactly how you needed them to and that the burglars were caught! Thank you so much for sharing your story and please let us know if there is anything we can ever do for you in the future.
We absolutely love Frontpoint. My husband did all the installation himself. We were very pleased that we could take our system with us when we move. We also tried their mobile app and use it all the time. The first time we used it we already knew how we use our center system when we're coming and going from the house.
One time I was very paranoid and I was sure that somebody was in my house cause I left my garage door open and there was some question on how the alarm system had set the alarm but showed that the door was closed after the alarm had been set. And so I called them freaking out, and they assured me that sometimes the centers will fire if they're fired the same time. As you're setting the alarm they will show opposite. And every time I called they have been great, someone's always available to talk if I had any questions about the system. Now I feel safer coming and going especially when my husband's deployed. I have peace of mind.
We are so happy to hear that you are feeling safer with your Frontpoint system and that our Support Team has been there to help you each time you have called in! It's an honor to have you as part of our family and ask that you please let us know if there is anything we can ever do for you in the future.
Frontpoint has been my service provider for four months. In installing the security device, the windows were easy to install, but the camera was not. It turned out to be fairly expensive to install the camera because I had to drill a hole from the outside in to get it working and I live in a brick house. I love the mobile app and I like the Keyfob. But the camera? Although I can see the picture perfectly, it either saves everything or saves nothing. And even when it saves everything, it doesn't get triggered when a delivery person comes in or every time I walk in the house. It gets triggered when the light changes outside and when I play with the sensitivity.
I've played with everything and can't seem to get it to work. Every time I call Frontpoint to have them walk me through it, I'm on the phone with them for over an hour. This is getting a little ridiculous because I'm paying for a service and it's not there. They don't do any in-home services, so even if I had wanted them to install it for me, they don't provide that service.
Melinda, the experience you are describing is far from our goal of providing you with excellent customer service 100% of the time. We are looking into your account interactions and the current setup of your cameras. One of our Support Supervisors will be giving you a call shortly to better understand what we can do to make this right. Thank you for the feedback!
After researching about Frontpoint online, I switched my home security service to them from a local provider, and so far the service has been the same. I had a tech call from Frontpoint and it was good, they were knowledgeable. Overall, my experience has been pleasant.
We're happy to have you as part of our family! Please let us know if we can do anything for you.
I feel a little bit more secure since installing it last February. Had a little rough time installing it at first, a couple of pieces of equipment were defective, but they sent out replacements and everyone in customer service has been great.
Glad to see you got all the help you needed and that you are feeling safer with your Frontpoint system!
My friend has the Frontpoint system and he suggested I get it. My son helped me with the installation, and it was pretty easy. I liked that it's wireless. He also downloaded the mobile app on my phone and my ipad and he showed me how they renamed everything for me, and how to use it. Pretty user-friendly. I feel more secure since I'm usually alone, so I like to know when I'm coming home from work that everything is safe and sound. I'd recommend it.
We're so glad to hear that you feel safer with your Frontpoint system! Thanks so much for the great recommendation and please don't hesitate to give us a call if you ever need anything.
Frontpoint ships you the parts and then they listed instructions on how to install it. Then they have a phone line to help you install it. The phone call was needed to help install it and they were fairly helpful. But we had one of the parts that they send defective and we told them. They sent us a new one and we returned the old one in the shipping box that they have sent us. So that was fairly simple to replace then. I'm satisfied with the service. I feel more secure and have fewer worries when I use the alarm system.
Fewer worries is what we like to hear!
We’ve done the installation ourselves. My son did it. It was pretty easy. We had to call them one time and the people there were nice.
Glad to hear that you had an easy installation and that we were right there to help you when you needed us!
It was because of the price at that time that made me chose Frontpoint. The person who set up the system for me was friendly and informative, and was able to answer all my questions. The app is a good feature.
Glad to see you got yourself a great deal and you're really enjoying that app!
I've had Frontpoint since the beginning of the year. Installing it was pretty painless. My doors are recessed so my sensors didn’t line up really well but a quick call to customer service and they overnighted my stuff right away. I use the mobile app all the time and it's wonderful. Frontpoint is pleasant and has good support.
It's great to hear that your system was easy to setup and that you are loving that smartphone app! Stay safe and let us know if you ever need anything. We've always got your back!
I picked Frontpoint because of two things. I can pick ala carte and get exactly what I wanted. I didn't have to take a mammoth package from the security company and have lightweight and very simple things. I like that about them. Second is I like that I could get everything set up myself and that I didn't have to wait for a tech to come to my house and lose time from work. Those were both very appealing for me as a consumer. Moreover, the price was what I expected. I like the mobile app. I've used it for those times when I've driven away from my house and I'm like, "Oh, did I ever set the alarm?" Then I can check and see if it is set or not and set it if I'm even not there. Other people might want more services, but if you're more on the DIY and that you just want something simple, I'd recommend Frontpoint.
Being able to customize your system is a must, and we understand that. You should never have to pay for something you don't need and we will make sure of it! Thank you for the feedback.
I had an excellent experience installing my Frontpoint security device. I like that I am able to access and control the system on the go via their mobile app. Their people are also friendly and helpful. When I didn't understand something, they're able to help and they did an excellent job.
We're happy to see you're having such an awesome experience with us! Thanks for sharing your experience and please let us know if we can ever do anything for you.
Price was a primary consideration in deciding to use Frontpoint and I like some of their features better than the other security provider I've had before. Installation was very easy and I like being able to access and control the system on the go. Plus Frontpoint team have been very responsive.
We completely understand that price is a large consideration when purchasing a security system! This is why we always have your back and keep your budget in mind too.
Frontpoint has been great. Compared to my previous home security provider, Frontpoint is much better.
Glad you find us to be better than your previous home security provider! Thanks for your feedback and please let us know if you ever have any questions or ever need anything.
I saw the value of Frontpoint's services and installing it was easy. The experience with them is as advertised.
Glad to hear it!
I had Southern Security for a long time and it really wasn't doing very much. I wanted to have a more up-to-date system and found Frontpoint. Installation was no problem. I even got help whenever I needed it. Using the mobile app is very easy, too. Overall, Frontpoint has been very good. I’ve had it just about a year now and I’m very happy with it.
It's great to see that you got all the help you needed and that you are enjoying your system! Stay safe and let us know if you ever need anything else.
The big old ConsumerAffairs and consumer reports button on the internet said Frontpoint is good. So I went for it. I talked to them on the phone and they've been pretty great. Being able to access the system on the go is awesome. Otherwise, I wouldn't do it. I called them and they resolved my problems and everybody was happy.
Glad to hear we were able to address all the concerns you may have had, and don't hesitate to give us a call in the future if you need anything!
(1) I like the illustrations and the simplicity of the instructions. I found the instructions very clear and very concise. (2) I'm really excited about the smoke alarm feature and not having to worry that my house is being broken into while I'm out of town. I live by myself so having that peace of mind helps. (3) My boyfriend sometimes will be at my house and he doesn’t have a key but I can set the alarm using the mobile app so he can turn the key.
That mobile app is definitely easy to use and super helpful isn't it? Thanks so much for sharing your story and please let us know if you ever need anything!
I was looking for the best home security on the market right now and Frontpoint was by far the leader as far as consumer ratings. We choose them because of the mobile option since it enables me to arm and disarm my house from my phone. I would also get automated messages telling me when the door is open or when they're left open. I can set reminders. I liked the whole automation part, it being wireless, and the ability to take the devices with me anywhere - there's no installation - it's super convenient. I love the fact that it asks me to put in my password and my fingerprint every time I log in. It tells me everything. It also hasn't had a glitch, I've never had issues arming or disarming the house. It's perfect and I love it! I've already recommended to some of my friends.
We know getting "perfect" is hard to come by, so trust us when we say you've got us blushing over here!
It's been ten months since I bought the device. It's pretty good. I even recommended it to my neighbor. It was very easy to install, very user-friendly, and it gives me all the alerts and alarms. I have a garage door opener that has an app with it too. With the combination of the two I feel safe when I’m out of town.
We appreciate your recommendation and we're glad to hear that you feel safer with your Frontpoint system!
The monthly costs made us decide to use Frontpoint over other security devices. Installation was pretty easy except for where to put the motion sensors was confusing. But other than that, it was pretty straightforward. I use alarm.com for mobile app, the one that Frontline partnered with. I didn't have the best start up with Frontpoint but they're a decent security company.
Thank you for your feedback and we're here if you ever need us for anything else!
