For any one seriously considering Front Point, I recommend trying to find a better source of reviews. I've had a Front Point system for 4 or 5 years and am very satisfied with their equipment, customer service and support. I see many poor reviews here that are wildly inconsistent with my experience. I've had something like 10 interactions with Front Point personal ranging from actual alarm responses to technical assistance to guide me in replacing batteries and every one of them was 5 stars in terms of professionalism and courtesy. In short, as far as I can tell, these people are well trained and care about their product and jobs.

I wasn't even looking for an upgrade, came across Dave going door to door, at 8pm its when I came home from work. He explained what the offer was. I accepted. Techs were there within the hour. and by 1200, they were done. Had cameras on backyard, front door and garage entrance done. I freakin love them already......................

I've had Vivint for a year and every time my alarm gets triggered they respond within seconds. I trust them so much more than ADT with their insanely inconsistent response times, and HORRIBLE customer service. This site is a little misleading because Vivint is the actual leader in the industry - after doing research I know that Vivint has the awards from the Consumer's Digest Best Buy award, Security Dealer Magazine award for best equipment, best warranty, and the People's Choice best customer service award.... FrontPoint, ADT, and SimpliSafe don't have any of those awards so why are they rated higher here?
