Comparing home security packages from multiple alarm companies can be a daunting task. Many companies offer introductory fees that mask the true cost of ownership. That is not the case with Frontpoint. With Frontpoint’s equipment and monitoring pricing, what you see is what you get.

Frontpoint offers three packages. All three packages include 100% wireless equipment and work using a cellular signal. All three packages can be self-installed and include a locked-in rate that will not be raised over the course of your contract and they include a 30 day risk free trial if commitment has you slightly phobic.

Be sure to read our in-depth Frontpoint Security review for full details on packages and monitoring services.

Frontpoint Equipment Pricing Breakdown

Frontpoint Simon XT Control PanelFrontpoint Equipment pricing is not as clear as their monitoring packages. Frontpoint offers customers the option to sign a 12 month or a 36 month contract which is awesome but will impact your equipment cost. The best deals will come with a 36 month contract. In order to get the best discount you must be a homeowner and must have qualifying credit. But in theory; you can get started with Frontpoint equipment for as little as $99 under a 36 month contract. Frontpoint equipment ships for free, is backed by a 3 year warranty, and their WOW customer service.

Frontpoint Security Equipment Breakdown

Again, Frontpoint packages are customizable so you can really pick and choose as needed. All packages come with a control panel of your choice – the standard GE Security Simon XT control panel which includes battery backup or the newer Qolsys IQ Panel that is touchscreen . Beyond the panel you can add equipment a la carte as needed. Keep in mind that only certain monitoring packages allow for automation. For example, you cannot use a light module with the Protection Plan but you can use it with Interactive and Ultimate.

Keep in mind that installing your Frontpoint equipment is very easy as demonstrated in the video below with a control panel included in every package:

Frontpoint Control Panels

Depending on the monitoring plan you opt for and the equipment you pair with it (up to 39 individual sensors), you will need to choose between the Simon XT keypad control panel or the more innovative Qolsys IQ touch screen control panel. No matter which panel you choose, Frontpoint offers the same reliability in alerts and notifications, quick communication from the Frontpoint Monitoring Center, and Z-Wave technology support.

GE Security Simon XT control panel

Frontpoint Simon XT control panel
Basic touchpad control panel. If you have no intentions of adding an image sensor and don’t need photos whenever you arm/disarm, the Simon XT will get the job done.

Qolsys IQ Touchscreen Control Panel

iq control panel
7” LCD resistive touch screen alternative to the Simon XT. Adds touchscreen capabilities and includes a camera to save images whenever arming/disarming. Also displays historical record of events. Speaks the names of sensors and tells you weather forecasting.

The control panel is the core of your home security system. Visit the Frontpoint Security website and start building your custom system around the control panel that best suits you.

 

Frontpoint Intrusion Sensors

You’ll get full transparency and control over the activities within and around your home with the variety of intrusion sensors offered by Frontpoint.

Door/Window Sensor

frontpoint door sensor on white
Monitors open/close movement of doors and windows. They’re incredibly easy to install by just peeling and sticking them to the door or window you want to monitor.

Recessed Door Sensors

Works like the door windows sensors but is hidden from view within the door frame. A ⅞” diameter drill and flat-head screwdriver to embed the device.

Garage Door Sensor

Frontpoint garage door sensor
Monitors overhead garage doors. Can be set to send text and email alerts with Interactive or Ultimate Monitoring. Includes geo-caching features to notify and perform if you leave your garage open by mistake.

Glass Break Sensor

livewatch glass break sensor on white
Monitors for the sound of breaking glass. It’s another easy peel-and-stick sensor you install within 20 feet of the windows. Even in rooms with multiple windows, one glass break sensor is all you need as long as there is a line of sight between the sensor and windows. Up to five years of battery life.

Motion Sensor

Frontpoint motion sensor
Monitors for motion and can cover about 1,000 square feet. Perfect for monitoring vacation homes or large areas of the home without investing in additional window and door sensors. You’ll receive notifications and alerts when motion is detected, and depending on the size of your pet, the motion sensor is easy to install high enough so that it doesn’t trigger an alert.

Image Sensor

Frontpoint image sensor
This is a new addition to the sensor family and is a combination of the motion sensor and camera. Whenever motion is detected, the sensor will take an image. You’ll need the Qolsys IQ Touch Screen Control Panel with the Interactive or Ultimate Package to be compatible.

You’ll want to protect both high and low traffic entryways depending on the size of your home. Visit the Frontpoint Security website to order more intrusion sensors.

 

Frontpoint Environmental Sensors

Monitor the conditions within your home that you can’t always detect with your naked senses alone. With many of these sensors, early detection is crucial to not only save you thousands of dollars in damages, but to save precious lives as well. Each sensor has a very specific function, allowing you to choose the sensors you need based on your home’s environment.

Carbon Monoxide Sensor

Frontpoint carbon monoxide sensor
Monitors for carbon monoxide. If detected the sensor sounds an alarm, flashes a light, and alerts the monitoring station.

Smoke and Heat Sensor

frontpoint smoke sensor
Uses a photoelectric chamber to detect smoke. It also detects rapid temperature changes. Adding one of these outside of each sleeping area, such as a common hallway near bedrooms,alerts you and your nearby fire department as soon as the sensor detects smoke or abnormal heat levels.

Water and Flood Sensor

Frontpoint water and flood sensor
Monitors for leaks and floods. As soon as the sensor detects water, you’ll receive an instant alert so you can react immediately to prevent as much damage as possible.

Freeze Sensor

frontpoint freeze sensor on white
Alerts you when the surrounding temperature drops to 41℉, allowing you enough time to shut off your water or take other appropriate action. Pair this freeze sensor with the water and flood sensor for a complete water disaster prevention combination.

 Keep in mind that every home has different monitoring needs based on their surroundings. Get the Frontpoint environmental sensors you need custom to your home’s potential for disaster.

 

Frontpoint Security Cameras

Frontpoint’s home security camera options are straightforward. They offer a high quality indoor camera, outdoor camera, and they’ve now teamed up with SkyBell to offer a trusted doorbell camera as well. The indoor pan and tilt camera is no longer offered, but Frontpoint offers compatibility with various pan and tilt cameras if you want one. All cameras are supported under the Ultimate Monitoring package plan.

 Read our Frontpoint video surveillance review for additional insight into their camera options.

Indoor Pan & Tilt Camera

DISCONTINUED – As of 2016, Frontpoint no longer carries the indoor pan and tilt camera.  However, if you find that your home would be better suited with a pan and tilt camera to get a wider view, certain third-party cameras are compatible. You’ll need to call Frontpoint’s customer support line at 1-877-602-5276 to provide you with a list.

Outdoor Camera

 Be sure to consider the size of the area you want to video monitor. You can visit the Frontpoint Security website to add additional cameras to your plan.

 

Home Automation with Frontpoint

Frontpoint’s systems are integrated with Z-Wave technology, allowing customers to branch out when it comes to home automation products. For example, if you want a specific type of smart thermostat or keypad door lock to compliment the aesthetic of your home and still offer functionality personal to your needs, not only can you purchase a product that Frontpoint offers, but you can shop around and find something that’s compatible somewhere else on the market as well. Be sure to call Frontpoint and confirm with a representative that the product you have in mind is compatible so you can operate it from your control panel.

Keypad Door Lock

Wireless Light Control
