Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Are wireless systems more effective than hardwired ones?

Both options have their perks. Many people look to tradition when deciding on dependability, which is an argument in favor of hardwired systems. However, technology has shown a push towards cellular networks, causing many leading home security companies to focus their efforts on wireless systems. Using an all-cellular signal and VoIP technology, Frontpoint is considered one of the industry leaders in home security innovation. Wireless systems are certainly easier to install and can be used in more locations, but perhaps the main lesson to take away from a company like Frontpoint is that no matter what type of system you install, its efficiency will largely depend on the competency of your security provider. Be sure to check out our full list of top providers where you can find a mix of the best hardwired and wireless systems on the market.

I live in an apartment. What home security options are available to me?

In the past, installing a security system for an apartment renter was considered a daunting task for both property managers and security companies. Unlike homeowners, apartment dwellers have more potential safety breaches right off the bat, considering the cleaning staff and other authorized workers who have keys to the space. But as home security leader ADT mentions on its website, the rise of wireless systems have opened up new opportunities for apartment renters. Wireless systems present a great alternative considering they don’t require too much hammering and disruption to install, can be easily expanded, and are easily adaptable to new technologies.

If you’re someone living in an apartment, be sure to head over to ADT and consider it’s apartment-ready, wireless solutions a gift for your residence. ADT is currently offering a free installation on 2 wireless cameras for new customers setting up ADT Pulse Video, so don’t miss out!

What happens to my system during a power failure?

This depends on the make-up of your system and whether it’s hardwired or wireless. While some hardwired systems have built in battery reserves that can be triggered during power outages, you should check with your provider, as this is not a standard feature. The fear of being disconnected in the time of an emergency has caused many people to favor wireless systems. Using those available through Frontpoint and Vivint Security as an example, these systems operate via cellular data and have the built in battery reserves that many hardwired systems lack. These systems come standard for most of our top ranked companies, so you won’t have to worry about tacked on fees. Keep in mind, though, that a working system does not necessarily mean you’re home is being monitored. Check with your home security system’s monitoring center to ensure that you’d be protected in the event of a power outage or similar hassle.

What happens to my home alarm if I move?

Moving out and having to uninstall your home alarm could seem daunting when assessing the possible fees and hassle associated with the process. However, you should have your security provider outline these details before signing up, as many companies realize the headache of moving and have softened their uninstallation protocol as a result. For example, Frontpoint states explicitly on its website that there’s zero charge for uninstalling and relocating your equipment. Revolutionary wireless systems make for an easy move, cutting out the hassle that usually results in extra fees with other companies. Current and potential ADT customers should also rejoice knowing that if they move, they could qualify for a free Premium Mover’s Package which includes a $349 credit towards an ADT Safewatch System.

Aside from intruder protection, what else can a home security system offer?

Hazards come in all forms. Depending on where you live, you are more susceptible to certain dangers than others, meaning it’s in your best interest to find a home security provider than can scale. We’ve found Frontpoint’s “Environmental” and “Life Safety” protection plan a robust solution for precautionary homeowners looking to cover their tracks in case of a flood, water leak or even a potential carbon monoxide threat. If you’re an elderly individual or someone with a serious health condition, Frontpoint’s Life Safety plan comes equipped with panic buttons, which you can engage for immediate response if a medical emergency ensues.
