Can you really put a price on security? The answer, in our opinion, is yes.
We’re not made of money. So, while we believe in getting the very best home security system we can afford, we also believe in taking advantage of absolutely every discount out there. Frontpoint has really good smart home security systems, but they’re even better when they’re discounted.
Let’s see how we can save on top home security protection with packages so discounted you’ll sigh in relief.
Frontpoint’s Current Deal
Frontpoint changes their special offers around every so often, but throughout most of the year, you’ll find discounts on Frontpoint’s website itself.
It’s always best to start with pre-made kits, as these packages are discounted heavily compared to if you buy the components they contain individually. There are three kits to choose from – The Starter Pack, The Home Shield, and The Family Lookout – that come with discounts up to 60-percent.
The packages serve as the fundamental building blocks of your system. Prior to completing your purchase, you will have the chance to purchase additional pieces for your system. These add-ons are offered at a discounted rate, typically around 25 percent off, but on special occasions, the discounts can be as much as 50 percent.
As of the moment, Frontpoint is running a 30-percent off site-wide sale. Keep a close watch on Frontpoint, though. The deals change often, and they sometimes go up to 60-percent. Bookmark this page for the latest offer.
Frontpoint’s site-wide discounts are available pretty much throughout the year, but if you’re fortunate enough to be shopping for a security system around the big three annual retail days, you may be in for a treat. These three special days are Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Prime Day.
The 2022 Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale took place between November 25 and 28, and yes, Frontpoint was on sale throughout the entire weekend. Frontpoint also turned up the discount from the usual 25- to 50-percent range to 60-percent. That means the $99 indoor camera, for instance, sold for only $40 during the sale.
This year, Black Friday will be on November 24 and Cyber Monday falls on November 27.
Frontpoint set up shop on Amazon’s platform sometime in 2022, but they haven’t joined the Prime Day festivities since. We monitored Frontpoint during Prime Day 2022 and the Prime Early Access Sale in October of the same year, but to no avail. We’re also monitoring them on Prime Day 2023 (July 11-12), but so far, we’re not seeing any discounts. Here’s to hoping that next year will finally be the year we see Frontpoint featured on Amazon’s Prime Day page.
FYI: Prime Day is an annual event where Amazon Prime members can find deep discounts on products sold on Amazon.1
Frontpoint doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to group discounts. We can’t find any evidence that it’s ever offered discounts to students, seniors, or the military. It certainly doesn’t offer any of these discounts now.
There is one discount you can count on when you purchase a Frontpoint security system, however. Almost every insurance company offers a significant discount on homeowners insurance for anyone with a security system. That being said, you don’t have to buy a Frontpoint system to get this discount. Usually, insurance companies permit discounts from any security system brand.2
In addition, Frontpoint offers fantastic customer service, like 24/7 phone and email support and an informative online help center. What we like best, though, is how well the Frontpoint system integrates with both Alexa and Google Assistant. That integration lets us control all our devices using just our voices. In fact, Frontpoint is one of the best security systems for Alexa!
Frontpoint’s prices, though, can be a little steep. For example, the company’s cheapest package costs over $400 on regular days, but with the current discounts, the price is cut down to $129. That’s more than the advertised 40-percent discount, and the reason why we recommend buying around special days when Frontpoint has on-going deals.
Here’s another thing: Professional monitoring is a requirement with Frontpoint, and there’s only one plan available. The plan costs $49.99 per month. Compare that to SimpliSafe’s overall price, which starts at just $17.99 a month for professional monitoring, or Ring Alarm’s costs, which charges just $20 a month for 24/7 professional monitoring.
Frontpoint is certainly not one of the most affordable security systems, but keep in mind that that plan covers everything from professional monitoring to home automation and cloud storage for cameras. To make the most out of your Frontpoint subscription, we recommend building a smart home security system complete with cameras and smart home devices.
