Truly smart home security should not only be safe and affordable, but also interactive. At FrontPoint, we offer amazing interactive features to our customers including remote access, custom notifications, video monitoring, and even home automation. We often hear from our customers how much they love these features, so I thought I’d take an opportunity to share the top 5 interactive features:
FrontPoint’s Top 5 Interactive Features:
1. Free Apps
Peace of mind never has to leave your side with home security mobile apps that let you control your security system from almost anywhere. Definitely a customer favorite, FrontPoint’s interactive monitoring plans come with free security apps for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices. These apps are easy to download, and make basic security controls as easy as one click.
2. Text and Email Notifications
Your FrontPoint Security system can be counted on not only for protection, but also to provide awareness of activity that goes on when you’re away from the house. You can set up customized alerts for notification via text message or email of any activity you’d like to know about. Find out if the garage door was opened or when the handyman arrived. Wondering how long the cleaning crew stayed at the house? Track that as well. Almost every FrontPoint sensor can be set up to send you a notification when is triggered (opened, closed, motion is detected, glass breaks, smoke is detected, etc…)
3. No Show Alerts
A relatively new feature with FrontPoint, ‘No Show’ Alerts provide notification when your system has not been disarmed. Why is this important? It’s perfect to use when you expect your system to be disarmed, and want to know if it does not happen. For example, if you are a parent who has a student that may be arriving home when no one else is there, it is critical to know if your son or daughter has not arrived home.
4. Video Monitoring
There are so many ways to utilize video monitoring solutions with your FrontPoint alarm system. Check up on house sitters while on vacation, or to make sure the kids are doing their homework. See the delivery truck arrive and leave, or find out when the dog walker comes to take out the dog. Make sure the garage door is shut, or keep an extra eye on a vacation home. With security cameras, you can stream live video right to a laptop or cell phone, or even save recorded clips for later. Sometimes seeing is believing, and video is a great way to have even more peace of mind that everything is okay while you’re away.
5. Home Automation
With new home automation technology, FrontPoint now enables you to remotely control a whole suite of new items, including lights, locks and even your thermostat. Using Z-Wave technology, FrontPoint has embedded these features into new interactive plans. Not only can you remotely access and control your floor and table lamps, door locks, and temperature, but you can also set up automated schedules. With thermostat control, you can set your home to warm up as part of an evening routine or cool down automatically before leaving for work in the morning.
Of course, there are plenty of other features that make FrontPoint the safest, smartest, simplest home security system. One of my favorites is the patented Crash and Smash feature that makes sure a signal is sent to your monitoring station, even if an intruder smashes the control panel. And I never forget to mention our use of GSM cellular technology that can’t be defeated by someone cutting the phone line or broadband cable.
With FrontPoint’s legendary customer service interactive monitoring, you get real peace of mind from a home alarm system that is safer, smarter, simpler, more affordable, and virtually impossible to defeat. That’s why FrontPoint is a great choice for anyone serious about the best home security for their home.
