I’ll echo the praise for Frontpoint (available directly or through  Self-install is super easy.  And one attribute that I don’t think anyone’s mentioned yet is that the system is completely wireless . . . meaning the principal alarm unit communicates with the monitoring service wirelessly.  Most systems communicate via a phone or tv cable wire.  I don’t have a landline phone, and my tv cable wire is easily accessible from by backyard . . . meaning it could easily be clipped by a burglar, completely disabling the system, before the burglar enters the house.  Beware, nearly all systems today are advertised as “wireless” because the individual sensors communicate with the main unit wirelessly . . . but the main unit is then connected via wire to the monitoring service.  And yeah, as others have mentioned, Frontpoint’s remote monitoring via phone app is great.  Cheers.
