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!

Great service and very helpful telephone assistance. Price is ok. 36 mo contract works for me as I bought this with a future in mind. 5 stars ***** for no Spanish on the customer service line This is the USA...

Like others who have provided a review I got a very quick call from front point to go through their system. During the conversation I let him know what I found in research and was looking for. Once he said he had done a detailed security plan after about 25 minutes I asked to be provided a quote via email. The promised follow-up call never happened not was the quote as promised. They asked a lot of questions that were based on my emotions - when I responded based on information gathered and needs it appeared I might not be their target customer. Makes me wonder who they would like as customers - informed and inquiring or others who may not be and are quite afraid.
