If I could give them a zero, I would have. I’ve spent hours on hold on the phone trying to terminate my out of contract subscription. When I wasn’t able to get to someone. It’s only after I put a stop payment with my credit card co to stop their autopay that Frontpoint contacted me about their payment. I refused to pay and asked them to cancel my account. They put me on hold both times and after 20 mins nobody had picked up. I called them and asked to talk to a supervisor, they were never put on the phone, instead I was told to provide them with proof that I had tried to contact them in November before they would cancel my account. I had to send them screenshots of my phone statements showing where I’d called them. I’ve done that and am waiting for them to confirm that the account is closed.

If one piece of equipment doesn't work tree system won't work even if you try to remove say "glass break". I asked to remove it and the company didn't remove it. The system won't work if one item isn't working. My smoke detectors work but no one calls to verify my house isn't in fire like they did in the past. They say they will remove the item from the system but it also didn't get done the second time. Although I removed a noon working detector because it needed a special battery, I could not harm the system because they never removed the glass break. Now nothing works. They went from great service and system to what I have now.

In general, we have had an excellent experience with FrontPoint. When it was time to change to new equipment, though, it was not intuitive and I need customer service to walk me through the new installation.

They've been very responsive to every alarm However the monthly fee is way too much and I'm actually looking to upgrade to Ring which I already have for a doorbell. I also want to replace my cameras which are old.

Easy installation, I like the do it yourself aspect and it has the best value. It is light weight and easy to hide. They are consistent with their responses.

The best part was the ease of installation, but it took a long time on the phone to get things set up after we had to make some changes. The price seems to be appropriate.

It has been a great system so far. The area they can improve is to offer the equipment and accessories pricing the same of new and current customers. Currently It's cheaper for new customers and pricier for current customers to add monitoring devices.

The best thing is the app. The other features leave a little bit to be desired. Some of the door chimes don’t work efficiently. Front Point should start thinking critically about how to compete on price because a lot of new technologies are emerging that are more cost efficient.

Looks nice and works. If there is an alarm or anything, they are right on top of it. Issues get resolved. There are some systems that are less expensive but this one is pretty good.

Everything works as it should. If there is a break they are there anytime. It nice knowing it I secure and that you are being monitored. For the fire detectors they need something other than the sticky stuff for the long term basis.

Your house is safe with front point and that gives you peace of mind anytime you are away or at home. If intruders come, you are going to be protected. It more than serves my purposes for keeping my home secure.

They need to hire more individuals and technicians. Recently it has been difficult to get someone on the phone. Once you do get a person, they are very nice and helpful but the wait time is awful. I like that it is not expensive but it is not sophisticated. It is fine for the purpose but not great.

As a system IT professional, I cant follow some of their docs sometimes so they could use better documentation. It was easy to install. The sensors are great and the thermostats are good but the cameras are a little bit iffy.

They don’t run many promotions for their existing customers to upgrade their equipment and that would be nice but they are the only ones that have good enough cell coverage for my area and overall it is pretty decent. I like that it is do it yourself and you can pick and choose from several options what fits you best.

For the most part the equipment seems to be working fine. I have had some issues, mostly with it going off when we are not at home, but mostly it works fine. Frontpoint is very responsive and call the check in and send someone if there is no response. The app is good. The price is competitive compared to other companies.

While no one wants to experience a home invasion, Frontpoint was there for me when my home was recently broken into. I've had excellent customer service when needed and the ease of operating my system from an app is so helpful. I've never had a false alarm with Frontpoint's system--a great improvement over a prior security company.

My Frontpoint experience was great for the first few years. Fortunately we haven't had to utilize them for any true security issues but when we've had a few false alarms, they were very responsive. My two biggest issues are 1) the options available to you once you are out of contract. For example, the battery on my control panel swelled to the point where it was pushing out the battery door and no longer working. Thankfully I noticed before it exploded or overheated. But when I tried to work with Frontpoint to get a replacement battery, my options were either to try and buy one privately somewhere or upgrade to a new panel that no longer includes a touchscreen. neither option was ideal, so i've just continued using the unit without the backup battery. The other issue is the price. Frontpoint continues to be priced much higher than a lot of the newer competitors, who are essentially offering the same service for half the price (or less in some circumstances). Frontpoint should absolutely consider making their pricing more competitive or I would anticipate them being driven out of the market.

The best part is the ease of use with the app. Their customer service has always answered all my questions. Sometimes the battery on the on the command center unit or whatever it's called the control panel or the control panel don't last that long or there's a failure so that's something that they should working to. Also, some of our sensors don't always work.

When I need to call customer service, they connect me with an actual person easily. I like feeling safe when going out of town having this system. One thing I wish they would improve is adding on free things to loyal customers. I've been with them for several years and wish they'd offer new free things to existing customers.

I went with Frontpoint because they offered a great product and service. Sometimes my system gets disconnected and a tech works with me to fix it. The service was excellent in rectifying the problem. Everything in the system works and on the rare occasion that something goes out they replace it at no cost to me.

I went with Frontpoint to be my business' security system because they have a lower monthly payment than other companies. They are usually very attentive when I call and they answer my questions with no issues. We had some initial issues with the sticky stuff they provided to mount our base, but we were able to figure it out with them. I really like the app they have to monitor and use the system. I wish they had a better system for billing invoices to businesses.

After I was told I'd get a return call from customer support, I waited over a week and a half to hear back from someone. I've only had problems with one sensor, because all the other ones have worked great. They are good at calling back when an alarm is triggered.

Whenever I've needed to call this company about fixing or replacing something, they send something out to fix it. When an alarm goes off, they're good at calling me back. Their security system is durable and holds up for a long time. It's easy to use and the keypad can be handheld if you don't want to mount it somewhere on your wall.

Customer support is easy to get a hold of and the system was easy to install. In fact, I was able to install it myself. Their app is user friendly. The only complaint I have is there is an annual fee I wasn't aware of, and then I had to pay a late fee on top of the annual fee.

We have had Frontpoint for 4 years and they do all of the things you would expect from a security firm, monitor the home when the alarm is set and give you a quick call if the alarm is activated.But, the do more when we changed internet providers one of there associates walked me thru resetting my cameras. This was no small feat, I worked on it for several hours before I gave up and called Customer Service. With in 10 minutes both my cameras were back up.

Was intially a bit difficult to initially install sensors because of type of windows home has, however robust technical customer service to help with technical issues. Once tech issue was resolved, installation was easier. Suggestion is to provide a digital table display instead of key pad.

Their customer service people skills are really good. They are knowledgeable in what they're doing and what they're dealing with. The only thing I don't like about their equipment is that they don't have the software to adequately keep the equipment up to date. My only suggestion is that they update their system and cameras to be in a much better position.

The cost and ease of installation is why I chose them. It is not connected to a hard wire. We don’t have to pay the perpetual monthly maintenance like we did with our last system. Customer service is pretty decent. I think it is a decent company though there a couple of things with the compatibility that would stop me from rating it the highest. I wouldn’t mind if they reached out periodically to tell me about possible new tools or features.
