The Benefits of the Frontpoint Image Sensor

Posted by , , at 8:30 am

A few months ago Frontpoint introduced the Image Sensor. This sensor is a revolutionary new piece of equipment that combines the security aspect of a motion sensor, with the surveillance benefits of a camera.

Since introducing the Image Sensor we have received tremendous positive feedback from our customers. So how can an Image Sensor benefit you?

Picture Without Video

One thing we have noticed over the years is the increased popularity of video surveillance in security systems. There are a wide range of benefits to using video cameras: from catching bad guys in the act to checking in and seeing your kids get home from school.

The downside of video surveillance is the extra cost. Video cameras can be expensive, and also add to your monthly monitoring fee.

This is where the Image Sensor comes in to play. Our Image Sensor provides the same security aspects of a Motion Sensor, but also gives you one of the same benefits of a video camera, the ability to see inside your home.

When motion is detected, the Image Sensor will snap a picture of whoever set off the sensor (don’t worry pet owners, it is pet friendly for most pets under 40 pounds!).

You’ll also be able to view images captured by the Image Sensor easily on your Frontpoint Mobile App.

Added Safety and Peace of Mind

One of the biggest benefits of the Image Sensor is that it creates an additional layer of safety for your security system. It adds security because when it detects motion in the home, it sets off the alarm (when the system is armed) just like a standard motion sensor would, notifying the monitor station to take action if needed.  It also takes a picture of that motion, so you can catch the bad guy in the act!

Sneak a Peek into Your Home

One huge benefit that a lot of our customers love about video cameras is the ability to live stream. Some like it to see when their kids get home, check in on their beloved pets or just to see what is going on at the house.

The Image Sensor also allows you to check in and see what is going on!

Through your Mobile App, you can take a live snap shot and in a minute the image will appear on your device. You’ll always know what is going on, even when you are away!

Versatile Product

The Image Sensor can be placed anywhere in your home: living room, kitchen, den or wherever works for you.

While the security industry is moving towards incorporating video and home automation, the Image Sensor is a great place to start. It will save you money upfront and in your monthly cost, but most importantly the Image Sensor provides real security to protect your home and family.

Whether you are a current customer at Frontpoint or thinking about joining the Frontpoint family, the Image Sensor is a fantastic addition to any home security system.

    How is the image sent to my smart phone and how long does it take? If my phone is not on, where is the image stored?

    How do you change the batteries in the sensors?

    • Valerie Saponara

      Ann, each sensor has a different way in which you can change the batteries, so please give our Support Team a call whenever you want to change out a battery and they would be happy to walk you through this.

    What is the cost to have an image sensor added to my system?

    • Valerie Saponara

      Benny, the image sensor is currently $89.99. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

  4. Rob

    Does the monitoring service have access to the images from the sensor, to verify whether an alarm is accurate?

    • Editor

      Great question, Rob. No, the monitoring station does not have access to the images. Even if they did, they wouldn’t be able to know if a person in your home was an intruder or you.
