Security Camera Installation in Chicago: Stay Connected and Safe

What if you could be certain that your child made it home safe from school? Or that intruders weren't lurking on your property?
With next-gen live-streaming home security cameras, Chicago residents can do all this and more. At Alert Protective, your safety is our specialty. As Chicago natives ourselves, we’ve seen the impacts of crime on our city first hand. So we’ve made it our business to help keep families safe throughout the city and the greater Chicagoland area.

Our video surveillance systems provide property owners with a way to keep a watchful eye on their home from anywhere in the world that has internet access. It’s never been easier to calm a worried mind. Thanks to simple smartphone integrations, you can see inside your home in real time with the device that’s already in your pocket.

Once we’ve installed security cameras in your Chicago home, you’ll be amazed with how much they can do. At the first sign of movement, they can send a notification straight to your phone. They can also store high definition video of the event in the cloud. So if you aren’t able to check your notifications in the moment, a recording will be waiting for you whenever you choose to view it.

Outfitting your home with a security camera system is the best way to protect your family and your belongings. A study of more than 400 convicted burglars showed that cameras were the number one deterrent for criminals. Other studies have demonstrated that video security has the ability to drop crime rates by roughly 50%. And simply knowing that your home is safe while your away offers a peace of mind that little else can provide.

If security is a top priority, consider pairing a surveillance solution with an alarm and our protective monitoring service. Doing so will grant you all of the protection of the camera system plus a team of professionals who are on call 24/7 to take action at the first sign of trouble. They can have the Chicago police department to your home in minutes if necessary and will always be there to answer any questions you may have.

Don’t let another day pass with an unprotected home. Give us a call today to learn more about security cameras in Chicago or to schedule an appointment to give your home the protection it deserves.

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.

with great experience. We offer full security protection.
