Deter Theft. Protect Employees. Safeguard Your Property.

Commercial surveillance systems deters criminals more effectively than any other security hardware. And the best surveillance networks are installed by professional techs who understand property weak points and blind spots.

Alert Protective has designed and installed thousands of custom commercial camera systems throughout the Chicago area. We offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor cameras. We also offer a variety of tools that simplify the storage of and access to your video feeds. So even if you’ve already installed security cameras, we can optimize your setup to improve its efficiency.

Our commercial security camera systems also integrate with your other alarm systems, making it easy to check on your business from anywhere at any time. And for those who prefer to take a more hands off approach, we can even manage your security services and monitor them on your behalf.

Prevent Crime with NetWatch Proactive Monitoring

In Chicago, CCTVs with live feeds aren’t always enough to keep criminals at bay. That’s why we’ve partnered with NetWatch to bring you an even greater level of protection. Rather than simply documenting criminal activity, proactive monitoring can prevent it from occuring.

IP camera systems will analyze any movement within the various protected zones of your property. Seconds after the system identifies a potential threat, a security expert will have eyes on the live feed. The expert will then issue a verbal warning, which scares off 98% of intruders. If necessary, they’ll also contact law enforcement and/or keyholders in accordance with the business owner’s predetermined escalation protocol.

With NetWatch, you’ll also receive thorough incident reports, which detail the specifics of every potential threat. These reports can save countless hours that would otherwise be spent filling out paperwork for law enforcement, insurance companies, and other authorities.

Security camera systems, and security solutions in general, should provide the peace of mind necessary to enjoy your time away from work. Knowing your surveillance cameras are actively monitored by security professionals should be all the assurance you need to do just that. It’s like having a full-time security team on site, but for a fraction of the cost.

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.
