Professional Monitoring to Protect Your Home or Business 24/7

Protective monitoring services are a must no matter how robust your security system may be.

If your alarm panel can’t contact emergency services, how effective can it really be? Systems without remote monitoring typically sound auditory alarms when they detect a threat. These might scare away intruders, but there are countless other dangers that can put your property at risk. And even the loudest alarm won’t scare away fires or floods.

You can’t be certain of when an emergency will strike. But with professional 24/7 monitoring support from Alert Protective, you’ll never be caught unprepared. We monitor our customers’ control panels from our 5-Diamond Certified monitoring right here in the Windy City. And as a local alarm company, we can provide the fastest possible response times for every kind of emergency.

The moment your alarm sounds, our highly-trained monitoring professionals will assess the situation. Next, they’ll contact you or your designated representative. Doing so ensures that you’re immediately made aware of any potential threats and can prevent unnecessary escalation for false alarms.

In the event of an actual threat, we’ll alert the appropriate authorities next. By keeping our security monitoring center in Chicago, we can shave precious seconds off those response times. And in an emergency, every second counts.

Thanks to our exceptional service, Alert Protective is the monitoring company of choice for tens of thousands of Chicago residents and businesses. And our rates for both landline and cellular monitoring are some of the most competitive in the industry.

So reach out to us today whether you need monitoring services for your commercial or home security system. Doing so could save you money every month, and it just might save your home or office from disaster.

Frequently Asked Questions

We make the process of choosing and installing home automation products in Chicago simple and straightforward.

How long have you been in business?

We’ve been locally owned and operated since 1982. This is remarkable longevity in our industry and our track record only keeps getting stronger.

Alert Protective Services provides security services for the entire greater Chicagoland area. If your home or business is located anywhere in northeastern Illinois, we would be happy to provide security services for your home or business.

A virtual who’s who of Chicago-area homeowners, home builders, businesses and corporations. They realize the advantages of dealing with a reliable local source, and we never disappoint.

We install, service and monitor security and fire alarm systems for homes and businesses. We also install surveillance systems, intercoms and wire for sound, video and telephony. We also offer many other low voltage services.

We service and monitor nearly any make or model of alarm system. Napco, Ademco, Honeywell, GE, DSC, Safewatch, FBII, ADT, Firelite and Silent Knight are just some of the security and fire alarm systems that we work with on a daily basis.

Yes. Unlike our competitors, Alert Protective Services is more than happy to monitor and service security systems installed by other security providers. Our highly skilled security technicians are able to service and program nearly any make or model of alarm system.

Easy answer: 100%. We live here too, and we’re committed to making all our neighborhoods safe and secure places.

Our UL-approved, central station monitoring facilities are located right here in the Chicagoland area. We also have two backup central stations that would be used in the event of a natural disaster or during extreme weather conditions.

Ownership is the way to go. Leasing a system tends to be more expensive in the long run. It saddles you to a long-term contract that may not be an ideal solution. If your needs change, or if the system installed isn’t performing well, you may be stuck.

Yes. We have consultants and technicians who specialize in Control4 and other home control and home automation systems. If you have a home anywhere in the greater Chicagoland area and are interested in a Control4 or other home control system, one of our consultants would be happy to provide a free quote and answer any questions you might have.

Alert Protective provides a comprehensive one-year warranty on all parts and labor. This is four times as long as the 90-day warranties offered by most other security firms.
