Frontpoint Home Security review
Easy to install & extremely reliable. We have alerts sent to our Android in the event we leave without arming. Through the app, you can easily & quickly arm the system. That is exactly what happened on our latest trip to PA from MA. We were so excited that we both forgot to arm the system! When we made a stop in CT, I noticed an alert on my phone. Panic set in & I quickly logged on the app &, presto, system armed! We've only had to call customer service a couple of times, mostly when the system was new. Each time we were instantly connected to a very friendly & helpful associate. Frontpoint is one of the best decisions we've made & the peace of mind is priceless!
