Guardian’s and CPI Security’s control panels are quite different from one another. Fronpoint’s control panel has a simplistic design, comes in two parts; the base and keypad, and it doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. We do really like Guardian’s Crash and Smash feature that is built into their control panel due to the extra security it gives you. CPI Security’s control panel is packed full of features, has an amazing display, and its easy to use. Because CPI Security’s control panel has a ton of more features than that of Fronpoint’s, we are giving them the win for this category. Check it out >
