FrontPoint security offers three different plans per month which cost $34.99, $42.99, and $49.99 respectively. Let’s take a look at each of these plans to see which would be the best fit for you. An important item to note is that all of FrontPoints systems are cellular based. That is great since that means that your phone lines cannot be tampered with.
First, let’s look at the $34.99 per month FrontPoint plan. This is called the Protection Plan. It has intrusion, fire, environmental, life safety, and 24/7 monitoring. This is very interesting to me because coming in at only $34.99 per month, that is a fairly good deal. ADT is normally about $35 per month and that does not include cellular. If you start cellular off the bat with ADT, that normally costs $45 dollars per month. So I would consider that a deal. I do list in a separate article, the ADT costs per month.
FrontPoint’s second plan coming in at $42.99 per month is called the interactive plan. The interactive plan is just that, interactive. You can control more of your house with it. You can turn your lights on and off or shut your power on or off. So this is giving you home automation as well. This is still a good deal I believe. You can see cameras from within your home as well when you are away.
FrontPoint’s third plan is $49.99 per month and is called their Ultimate monitoring system. This connects with the GPS system in your phone and will alert you if you leave your house without setting the alarm. You can also view video from your house on your phone.
It’s important to note that FrontPoint does have an up-front equipment cost. This can be very expensive. It’s around $400 to do streaming video. It’s $23 dollars per door sensor. $90 dollars for heat sensors or water sensors. $250 dollars for their control system. You can easily be spending $1,000 dollars.
The bottom line is if you know you are going to be living at your current residence for a while, this could be worth it for you but you have to be willing to pay the up-front costs for the system.
