We have had the Frontpoint System for 2 years now. I always feel safe when entering my house and know that if anyone tries to break in the alarm will go off and police will respond. I love that it has a backup battery for the times we lose power, it will remain in force. The customer service department there is absolutely the best, and can help you with any problems.

Great company. My parents had them for years as a kid and we never had any issues. The one time we did have someone try to break into our house, they were there right away and it was the best decision we could have done!
