Determine your needs

• Not all people or homes are alike. Take a quick inventory of the goals you have for protecting your home
• Learn more about the specific protection Frontpoint offers for your peace of mind


Start at the front door

• 90% of all intrusions happen through the front door
• A door sensor is a sure-fire way to keep tabs on who’s coming and going


Cover all ground entry points

• Windows: These can be covered by Door and Window Sensors, Motion Sensors, and Glass Break Sensors. Window Sensors may not be effective if a window is smashed by an intruder. Motion Sensors and Glass Break Sensors cover wide areas and multiple windows, and are often times a more effective and affordable way to protect areas with many windows.
• Doors: Consider placing a sensor on every ground-level door


Make sure you monitor more than intruders

• Place a monitored Smoke and Heat sensor near sleeping areas
• Place a Water and Flood Sensor in the basement or near the hot water heater
• Place a Freeze Sensor in the basement or near pipes that could freeze in lower temperatures


Second floor and beyond

• While it’s less likely that an intruder will enter somewhere other than the ground floor, it’s still important to make sure upper floors are monitored for environmental threats 
• Place a monitored Smoke and Heat sensor near sleeping areas
• Place a CO sensor in sleeping areas to detect dangerous levels of carbon monoxide
