Frontpoint Costs

Considering a home security system with Frontpoint? Learn about the costs you can expect to pay for the provider’s security solutions.

Frontpoint Costs

Frontpoint Security was founded in 2007, and the company aims to keep families safe through simple yet smart home security solutions. One differentiating factor about Frontpoint is that the provider has DIY, or do-it-yourself, home security systems. DIY home security systems can be better for customers who are on a budget and want to avoid contracts and installation fees. With Frontpoint security systems, you’ll have access to cellular monitoring, locked-in monitoring rates, geo-location services, Crash & Smash protection and more. We share some of the costs you’ll need to consider if you’re interested in purchasing a Frontpoint security system.

Safe Home Starter

Starting at $44.99/mo

Our take

Frontpoint’s Starter package contains just the basics. For a bundled price of $255.96, you receive the alarm panel hub and keypad, three versatile activity sensors and ample signage to let visitors know the home is protected. The Starter package is best for small homes, tight budgets or as a foundation on which to build a more customized set-up.

Package Devices Include:

  • Frontpoint hub & keypad
  • 2 door/window sensors
  • 1 motion sensor
  • 1 yard sign
  • Set of 5 window decals
  • 1 door sticker

Safe Home Everyday

Starting at $44.99/mo

Our take

For $295.94, the Frontpoint Everyday package sticks to basic intrusion protection and activity detection, but it includes a couple more sensors than the barebones Starter package. While the Everyday package still represents a no-frills approach, it includes slightly more coverage.

Package Devices Include:

  • Frontpoint hub & keypad
  • 3 door/window sensors
  • 2 motion sensors
  • 1 yard sign
  • Set of 5 window decals
  • 1 door sticker

Safe Home Plus

Starting at $44.99/mo

Our take

The Home Plus package provides the essentials for intrusion detection with an emphasis on break-in protection. The inclusion of glass break sensors instead of motion detectors makes it suitable for areas where smash-and-grab crimes are a concern, or homes with pets that might activate a motion sensor. Bundled cost is $319.94.

Package Features

  • Frontpoint hub & keypad
  • 4 door/window sensors
  • 2 motion sensors
  • 1 glass break sensor
  • 1 smoke and heat sensor
  • 1 yard sign
  • Set of 5 window decals
  • 1 door sticker

Safe Home Select

Starting at $44.99/mo

Our take

The Frontpoint Select package is well-equipped to protect your home from intrusions and fire damage. You can detect activity from doors, glass breaks or general motion and rest assured that your smoke/heat sensor is also under the watchful eye of Frontpoint’s 24/7 professional monitoring service. This well-rounded equipment package costs $383.92.

Package Features

  • Frontpoint hub & keypad
  • 4 door/window sensors
  • 2 motion sensors
  • 1 glass break sensor
  • 1 smoke and heat sensor
  • 1 yard sign
  • Set of 5 window decals
  • 1 door sticker

Safe Home Preferred

Starting at $49.99/mo

Our take

The Preferred package is Frontpoint’s most robust bundled equipment selection, and it’s an ideal starting point for larger homes that need more protection. It includes a total of eight activity sensors, along with a smoke/heat sensor and an indoor camera for video surveillance, all for $479.90. Note that a slightly more expensive monitoring plan is required to access all of Frontpoint’s video streaming and storage features.

Package Devices Include:

  • Frontpoint hub & keypad
  • 4 door/window sensors
  • 2 motion sensors
  • 1 glass break sensor
  • 1 smoke and heat sensor
  • 1 yard sign
  • Set of 5 window decals
  • 1 door sticker

How Do Frontpoint Costs Compare to Other Home Security Provider Costs?

Compared to other home security providers, Frontpoint costs are about average to expensive. Frontpoint packages aren’t as inexpensive as SimpliSafe or Abode packages when considering the more basic packages. Frontpoint monitoring is also a lot more expensive than SimpliSafe or Abode monitoring. Yet, despite the fact that Frontpoint’s systems and monitoring is a little more expensive than some DIY competitors, it’s worth noting that the provider does have geo-location services, which allows you to create custom rules for your security system and smart devices. 

Frontpoint also has Crash and Smash protection, which is designed to prevent intruders from getting away even after they’ve destroyed your control panel. A Frontpoint monitoring specialist will dispatch the authorities if he or she detects that your system has suspiciously been disconnected. We recommend Frontpoint if you’re looking for a DIY security system that is easy to install and features smart home capabilities. In our Frontpoint review, we give the provider a 7.2 out of 10 as our recommended pick for the most customizable home security solution.
