Frontpoint Home Security review

I did my homework in studying all the available home security systems, took me 3 weeks and i learned a lot from all these phone calls I made... talked to about 10 companies. Well, FrontPoint was the one i selected. My husband & i installed all the equipment one Sat morning & it was up & running smoothly that day. It really was quite easy installing everything. We used the Frontpoint Wizard on our cell phone to guide us & when we had a question, we picked up the phone & called. The rep was incredibly helpful, patient, informative & very very thorough. They have very well trained people, ready to assist & get it all activated. And i can view just about everything on my phone app, its very convenient. Absolutely everything was done very professional. And does it work? Well when alarm is set & something is breeched & the code isnt inserted within the time limit, yep we get a call asking if they should send the police! Yep, works very well! And what i loved was that i chose what sensors to buy rather than having their salesperson recommend. See, i knew what i wanted after learning how it all works. It pays to do some research.
