Frontpoint's three equipment packages come with a hub and keypad, but the specifics vary to fit your home. You can build a customized package if you prefer.
The good news is you can pay very little up front to get Frontpoint in your home. And you can enroll in a Bread consumer financing plan that allows you to pay $10 a month for your Frontpoint equipment over the course of the contract, though you have to get a credit check to qualify.
We like that Frontpoint lets you customize its packages to suit your needs or build a custom system entirely from scratch. You can customize each Frontpoint security package with extra equipment, but you pay for every additional device.
As with most wireless home security sensors, the name describes the best use for a particular sensor. So the sensors you choose ultimately boil down to what you want to monitor, like a garage door or an aging water heater.
In certain cases, like with the carbon monoxide sensor, it’s a lot more affordable to get unconnected versions at a hardware store or retailer. They might not have central station monitoring, but you don’t have to skimp on putting enough detectors around your home.
Still, we think monitoring these devices is a good choice if you have limited mobility to get out of your home by yourself in an emergency, often go on extended trips, or have pets.
