Helpful Holiday Tips from FrontPoint Security, Providing the Next Generation in Home Security

With the holidays just around the corner, many Americans plan to hit the road, leaving their homes and valuables unattended. To help homeowners feel safer and more secure, FrontPoint Security Solutions is pleased to offer three key home protection tips from CEO Chris Villar. Villar and the management team from FrontPoint have worked in the alarm industry for nearly thirty years and created FrontPoint in 2007 to offer the best new technologies for home protection at an exceptional value.

Tip #1 - Choose safer, all-cellular monitoring - Traditional phone line-based alarm systems are rendered worthless when burglars cut the phone line from outside the home. Next-generation, all-cellular systems have no lines to cut, offering safer, more secure monitoring.

"Once that phone line is cut, most alarm systems become just an expensive noisemaker," says Villar. "A system with the latest all-cellular communication technology provides unparalleled peace-of-mind when you're traveling during the holidays."

Tip #2 - Take control with interactive features - Most alarm systems force you to "set it and forget it" - you're out of control once you're out of the house. The FrontPoint system includes interactive monitoring features, such as the ability to access and control the system remotely - and even get email & text message alerts. That means you can sit in front of the computer (or use your mobile phone or PDA) and stay connected to what's going on at home while you're away. And with FrontPoint's wireless cameras, you can check on every nook and cranny.

"Interactive monitoring keeps you connected to your home no matter where you are," said Villar. "If it opens, closes or moves inside your home, a FrontPoint system can notify you instantly with email and text-message alerts."

Tip #3 - Winter-proof your home without paying more - Cold weather can bring extra worries when you're away from home, such as flooding from frozen pipes and freezing temperatures from failed furnaces. Monitoring these conditions brings added security, but at a steep price with most traditional alarm systems.

"Many of the big home security companies tack on hidden monthly fees to monitor things such as water level, freezing temperatures or even basic essentials likesmoke & fire," explains Villar. "FrontPoint customers can monitor these and many other conditions at a single monthly rate - without any hidden fees."

"An intelligent system that can track conditions throughout your home, connect securely to our monitoring center and notify you instantly of system events gives you the peace of mind to enjoy your holidays away from home," continues Villar.
