Making Chicago a Safer Place to Live, One Home at a Time

There's no city like Chicago, and no home like your home. That's why Alert Protective designs and installs custom alarm systems for each home, based on the needs of our local Chicago community.

Alert Protective was founded in Chicago and has served Chicago families for decades. It’s this home-court advantage more than any other reason which sets us apart from the giant national security brands.

Schedule an Appointment

Calling (773) 685-8383 or requesting a quote online will connect you with an actual Alert Protective employee – not a call center agent.

When the consultant arrives, he or she will perform a comprehensive home assessment, identifying all entryways and blindspots. The consultant will then work within your budget to identify the best security solution possible for you and your family.

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.

We don’t have a “one size fits all” approach; every Alert Protective Services system is tailored for your unique needs. What’s more, we don’t over-design our systems: we take pride in recommending exactly what you need for optimum protection without unnecessary frills.

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.

We are a Chicago-based company
with great experience. We offer full security protection.
