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.

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?
