As of April 12, 2021, Frontpoint only offers the Ultimate monitoring plan for $49.99 a month. They also narrowed their packages down to three options, with 36-month consumer financing available from Bread.
Frontpoint is a top choice for many security system shoppers not only because it’s affordable, but because it’s available to people from all walks of life. The company doesn’t require a credit background check, it has no contracts, its equipment is self-installed, and financing options are available. Frontpoint also doesn’t shy away from launching deals all year round, with some of the best ones coming on Black Friday. We want you to get the best deals possible, so we did our research to paint you a picture of what to expect this year.
Frontpoint Black Friday Deals
Frontpoint is usually upfront about its pricing. When we bought a security system for our Frontpoint review, we gathered all the cost-related information we needed from the company’s website. There, we learned Frontpoint’s pricing for packages down to individual components and professional monitoring fees.
When it comes to Black Friday deals, however, Frontpoint keeps things under wraps until just before the day of the sale. Since this year’s Black Friday will be on November 27, we won’t be seeing Frontpoint’s offers until the week of. So, how can we know what to expect? We started by looking at Frontpoint’s Black Friday deals from previous years.
Frontpoint Black Friday Deals in 2018
In 2018, Frontpoint brought down the prices of many of its products. Anyone who shopped on Black Friday, whether new or existing customers, saved at least a few bucks. On top of that, Frontpoint gave new customers a free Frontpoint Hub and keypad plus a $200 discount. 2018 was the year the company launched the Frontpoint Hub, which is a replacement to traditional control panels, so offering it as a Black Friday deal made a lot of sense.
Frontpoint Black Friday Deals in 2019
In 2019, aside from reduced equipment prices, customers received a promo code that got 15 percent of their checkout totals trimmed off. We aren’t ones to pass up such an amazing offer, so we used this opportunity to purchase a SkyBell Slim Line video doorbell, also known as the SkyBell Trim Plus. It’s one of the doorbell cameras that work with Frontpoint systems. You can check out our SkyBell review for more details about the product.
Frontpoint Black Friday 2020: What To Expect
Based on Frontpoint’s previous Black Friday deals, we’re almost certain that it will once again lower the prices of its equipment this year. That’s good news for both new and existing customers.
New customers should watch out for discounted packages. We’ve seen Frontpoint offer discounts on security systems all year round, but Black Friday discounts are simply larger in comparison. For existing customers, Black Friday may be the best time to acquire add-on components. You can purchase cameras like we did last year, or upgrade your security system to a smart home system with home automation devices. It’s also a great chance to purchase additional sensors.
On Black Friday, we will see Frontpoint’s deals on the company’s website. The online approach will likely bode well for Frontpoint given that the number of consumers doing their Black Friday shopping online continues to grow.1 As for us consumers, it would be wise to check Frontpoint’s website as the day draws near so we don’t miss out on important announcements.
Tip to Save More: Aside from lowering its equipment prices, Frontpoint might launch other types of promotions on Black Friday. Frontpoint will most likely announce those deals around Thanksgiving, so monitor its website and social media pages to be the first to know.
Frontpoint Equipment Price
It’s difficult to determine which items specifically will be on sale come Black Friday. So for your reference, here’s how much each Frontpoint component costs now, including the starting monthly prices of those that can be financed through Affirm.

|Hub and Keypad||$249.99||$21.00|

|Packages||Safe Home Starter||Safe Home Everyday||Safe Home Select||Safe Home Preferred|
FYI: Frontpoint’s Black Friday sale can sometimes last for up to three days, covering even Cyber Monday. If you miss out on Black Friday deals, check back again the next day. Some products might still be on sale.
Black Friday Tips
If you decide to wait around until Black Friday, follow these tried and tested tips of ours for a chance to get better deals on November 27.
- Shop during the first hours of Black Friday. Early birds could get better deals, plus Frontpoint’s website won’t be as crowded as in the morning. In previous years, the amount of traffic to shopping sites more than doubled on Black Friday.2 This caused significant slow down on websites, so it’s only smart to avoid shopping during high-traffic hours.
- Monitor Frontpoint’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. Frontpoint might post additional promo codes and deals on there.
- If you’re an existing customer, log in to your Frontpoint account. There might be additional deals waiting for you.
- Scour Frontpoint’s website or get in touch with Frontpoint through phone, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and ask for Black Friday deals. Think of it as an Easter Egg Hunt, but instead of Easter eggs, you’re hunting for more obscure deals.
Our Final Thoughts
One of the things we are thankful for this Thanksgiving is that we and our loved ones remained safe through these trying times. We’re sure many people feel the same way. However, it’s also up to us to ensure that we remain safe and secure especially at home.
