The best features of this system
Insider Tip: Three Frontpoint packages are available. You can choose the $49.99/month Ultimate Plan for comprehensive home security with video and tamper protection for the control panel. If you don’t want video, then the $44.99/month Interactive Plan is our top recommendation. It provides still image monitoring, tamper protection, remote control for alarms and lights with the Frontpoint security app, and more. Frontpoint’s cheapest plan would save you $10/month but it lacks tamper protection.
Deal listed requires a 3-Year monitoring agreement. Prices are subject to change.

Extra safety and control come with Frontpoint keychain remotes. A keychain remote enables remote arming/disarming and has a button for emergency calls.
Protecting you against forgetfulness, the optional Frontpoint geoservices feature can alert you when you’ve left home without arming your security system.
