Making Midwest Safer One Home Security Installation at a Time

Your home is your castle. Unfortunately, protecting your castle with a moat isn’t practical here in the Midwest. Thankfully, our state-of-the-art home alarm systems provide the protection you need.

As one of the leading home security companies in the Midwest, we understand that every home is different. That’s why we design and install custom home alarm systems according to the specific needs of each unique residence. In some cases, an alarm system will provide ample protection all on its own. In others, a complete home security system might be necessary.

Alert Protective was founded in the Midwest and we’ve served families here over the last four decades. Our home-court advantage sets us apart from the national security brands. We know the ins and outs of every neighborhood because we live here, too. And we use that knowledge to design the most effective systems for every home alarm installation.

Home Alarm Systems: More Than Just Hardware

An alarm is only as effective as the response to it. So with every home alarm installation, we offer alarm monitoring in the Midwest. Like the rest of our company, our 24/7 professional monitoring service center is located right here in our city. As a result, we provide lightning-fast response times and the most competitive pricing in the industry.

Even if you already have a monitored system, our 5-Diamond Certified monitoring center could save you as much as 40% a month. Best of all, you won’t even have to purchase new equipment.

Integrating Home Alarm Systems

When your alarm is only one part of your home’s protection, each component should work seamlessly with the rest. At Alert Protective, we make sure that they do.

From a single mobile app, you can monitor and control the alarm, motion sensors, and security cameras for your Midwest home. You can respond in seconds from anywhere in the world at the first sign of trouble and cancel false alarms just as quickly. Plus, with our Midwest home automation services, you’ll be able to control your home entertainment, lighting, and more!

Alert Protective has the experience and expertise to keep you safe with home alarm systems designed for your unique needs. Call us today at (855) 433-6700 for a free security system quote.

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 Midwest-based company
with great experience. We offer full security protection.
