FrontPoint systems are fully customizable so they can also be used to monitor for freezing pipes, rising water which can lead to a flood, carbon monoxide, open cabinet doors, and increase in temperature from a fire, among others. Users can also configure the settings to see if the maid is going somewhere she shouldn’t, the dogwalker showed up on time, or if your spouse was really home when they said they were.
The emphasis is on a multi-member system that doesn’t require large-scale installation schemes. And of course, Farpoint also offers remote-controllable wireless cameras. Whatever kit you choose, updates—and control—via mobile are possible. Which raises one question: isn’t defeating this system a simple matter of jamming the control panel’s cellular link? Wouldn’t you be able to have your way then? Wouldn’t the maid be able to go anywhere in your personal domain, wouldn’t the dogwalker be always late with no consequence, and wouldn’t your spouse be able to pretend once again that he (or she) was home?
Basic setups go as low as $100, but that requires agreeing to a 3-year contract. More information available on FrontPoint’s website.
