Frontpoint provides all the home security features of full-service, professionally installed systems, but puts all the control (and installation) in your hands.
SafeWise Rating: 4.2
These days, it’s easy to find a DIY home security system, but it’s harder to find one that can compete with home security titans like ADT or Vivint. Enter Frontpoint.
Frontpoint offers all the benefits you would expect from home security: indoor and outdoor security cameras, smart home integration, mobile app control and 24/7 professional surveillance. And you get it all without push-ups, door-to-door consultations, or sky-high equipment prices.
With just one monitoring plan to choose from, Frontpoint makes it easy to find the right equipment for your home and family.

For those who enjoy DIY independence but don’t want to compromise on equipment options or features, Frontpoint is a great fit.
Unlike other DIY home security brands that have limited options (like no outdoor security cameras), Frontpoint offers just about every component you could want in a security system. And it includes extras like CO monitoring and smoke detectors in its entry-level plan.
Granted, Frontpoint’s entry-level plan costs more than many others, but it also delivers more. You get full access to the mobile app and life safety monitoring, and you’ll never pay for installation.
Best of all, there is no contract and you have full control over when, where and how your security system is installed.

One of the downsides to DIY home security is the high upfront payment for the equipment. While you can purchase your equipment directly from Frontpoint, you don’t have to.
To make home security as accessible as possible, Frontpoint offers you options. You could get a Frontpoint security system for as little as $ 99 or $ 0 down payment if you opt for its third-party consumer finance.
The financing will put you in a contract until the equipment is paid off, but there’s no penalty for paying it off sooner, and Frontpoint doesn’t even perform a credit check.
You will pay a little more Frontpoint, but it’s at the top of its class for full-service DIY home security. Frontpoint’s advanced security system options set it apart from other simpler DIY options.
