Sam H.

I had a really easy experience working with Forbel. I don’t always understand the technology side of things, but the team at Forbel made all of my business security solutions clear, so my Chicago office is secure. They are the best near me!

Randy L.

We have been struggling with our video surveillance system at our office in Chicago for years, but Forbel got it all worked out. Their team took the time to explain our options and quickly upgraded our system to a better option - awesome!

Wendy T.

If you’re looking for office security systems at a competitive price, Forbel is it! They installed multiple security systems at my business and had insights into all of the options on the market. They made it easy for me as a new business owner.

Nick L.

I’ve been looking for office security solutions for the last few months and finally stumbled across Forbel. The team was knowledgeable and seamlessly connected a new camera and alarm system at my office. I don’t know how they do it, but they are great!

Tim G.

Forbel is the best company I’ve found for installing a warehouse security system in Chicago. It’s a truly knowledgeable and efficient team - you can’t go wrong!

Will K.

I never realized how much goes into distribution center security until I attempted to do it myself! Thankfully I found Forbel, who installed cameras, fire detection, and video surveillance to my Chicago center. They are great!

Ralph M.

I was in need of a major logistics security solutions upgrade, and Forbel helped really quickly. Their team made the whole process seamless, and now I don’t have to worry about my space anymore. Highly recommend.

Manuel G.

I’ve been looking for a security warehouse solution near me and came across Forbel. The team was knowledgeable and offered a free estimate, so I could gauge what my warehouse needed. Their team was really knowledgeable about how all the different cameras and alarms work together, and I knew I could rely on them. Thank you, Forbel!

Joe B.

I didn’t realize how much of a pain installing fire detection devices would be in my large warehouse, but thankfully the team at Forbel took it off my plate. The skilled team worked quickly to install all the alarms - very reliable!

Jose R.

Forbel has an incredibly responsive team. There are a lot of industrial security systems to choose from, and Forbel offers free consultations where they went through my questions to find the best solution. Definitely my new go-to security professionals!

Sue J.

Securing my large manufacturing plant was proving to be too big of a task for me to do myself, and thankfully Forbel came to the rescue. Before getting started, they discussed with me the video surveillance and CCTV options and managed to create a plan to suit my large space. It was all seamless!

Jim K.

I’m so glad I went with Forbel for my manufacturing security solutions. I wasn’t sure if I wanted just an industrial camera monitoring system, and the team at Forbel helped explain my other options and seamlessly integrated the new security with my existing one. Thank you, Forbel!

Daniel L.

Forbel is wonderful to work with. From good pricing to excellent customer service and state of the art equipment, they are who you want to work with when it comes to your security. I built a house and had them do the entire alarm system - they were by far the best price and customer service. Easy to work with, and they don't cut corners - you will get the best products as they will always have your best interest at heart.

Braiden Beasley

Their lighting control systems are truly top notch. I've been working with Forbel for our local offices in Chicago and they've always exceeded my expectations. From the discussion on which lighting systems are the best for our offices to the installation, no words for how smooth their work is. It may seem small but to not worry about the lights? It's just one of those daily nuisances I am really glad to no longer have to think about. Kudos to Forbel and the team. Service that is really well worth the costs.

Clement Barton

The best in the business! I recommended light dimmers for our small-ish office since we have people working round the clock or in different shifts. We're only a handful of busy people, no one can really be bothered to adjust the lights as needed so the dim feature was convenient. Obviously, this helped us on the electric bill, too and overall office ambiance. Glad to find Forbel in local Chicago.

Kellan Chambers

If you or your business are looking for cost-effective lighting control system installations in Chicago, I highly recommend Forbel. Best lighting solutions integrator I've worked with locally. They had been so accommodating with any specific requests on the project and know the best lighting control system to install, depending on the need.

Laurentiu Vlad

Forbel Alarms installed and configures our new 43,000 sqft manufacturing location for HD video surveillance, intrusion alarm, key fob access control system and structured cabling. The quality of work, their responsiveness, knowledge and customer support is outstanding. We are very happy with the decision to go with Forbel for our needs.

Igor C.

Forbel installed an alarm system at my warehouse at a very reasonable cost.

Kyle Korol

We have just completed building our dental office in Evanston and Forbel did an amazing job with all IT-related tasks- installing alarm system, mounting security cameras, setting up phone systems, Wi-Fi, TVs, and installing surround sound throughout the office. Most importantly Forbel worked with dental software vendors to make sure that all components are fully integrated with internal workstations. Providing great service to the clients is their first priority and that’s what separates Forbel from other companies.

Jeff Huh

I recently opened a franchise, Sweet Lorraine's Fabulous Mac N Cheez in Vernon Hills, and needed HD security cameras, burglar alarms, and LCD screens for the business. Forbel has met all my expectations and provided excellent customer service. They have up to date equipment and have been really knowledgable in the current security industry. I am very pleased with their work and would definitely refer them to other businesses.

Edgard Vinczy

Forbel Alarms is a highly professional, trustworthy, responsive company that I had the pleasure to work with at two different locations within the United States, both first class manufacturing companies operating out of a 150,000 square feet facility. Its highly skilled professionals performed a broad range of services, from installing a great number of HD video surveillance cameras, to providing the best quality and value in structured cabling, rack mounting and wire management, electronic keys/key fob system, as well as intrusion detection. Their work was delivered on time and to high standards. I favorably recommend Forbel Alarms for its work and high standards of professionalism.

Oleg B.

Forbel Alarms did a great job installing the alarm system at our commercial building

Michael Slepak

Forbel installed a video security system and burglar alarm at our childcare center. They did a great job at a very competitive price. Very good ongoing support service. Very satisfied customer.

Rob N

Forbel installed fire alarm system in our condo building in 2016. Very nice clean install and system functions well. Needed maintenance on our system and issues were resolved promptly. Fair pricing and good selection of products if you are considering cameras or access control devices.

Shawn Mackay

I’ve worked with Forbel on multiple commercial projects where paging systems and intercom systems were needed to be installed or upgraded. One of the projects required a tricky integration with a new phone system. They did quality work from the beginning planning phases through the installation and testing. Great, knowledgeable staff!

Steve Huff

I have used Forbel for my home and office, both security and audio video (AV) have been fantastic. They have met and exceeded my expectations time and time again. Follow through by both the company owner and technicians is excellent. I would recommend to anyone who is a busy professional and wants a company that will work to properly set expectations and meet/exceed.

Christopher Gardiner

Very reliable and knowledgeable. We have been doing business with Forbel for years for our restaurants and bars and they have chosen to be very efficient.

Michael Stone

I’ve had a great and easy experience with Forbel and there weren’t any hassles to deal with. They were upfront and honest about anything regarding costs/monthly rates. I’ll be sticking with them and might expand my security system with them since crime in my area seems to be increasing.

Enis Lewis

Forbel provided excellent and quick service by replacing three assistance intercoms in our 24-story high-rise located in the Chicago South Loop. The installation was done by a technician that knew what he was doing and done very clean -- absolutely the best customer service I have experienced. Makes my job a lot easier knowing I can depend on this company when the need arises. Looking forward to working with them again!

Village Children’s Academy Hinsdale

We had been having problems with our door for months and had not been able to find anyone who was able or willing to fix it. Dzmytri responded to my request right away and was able to correctly diagnose our problem with just a few photos. They are terrific!

Guy Ramstack

Forbel Alarms installed several components at the Moorings Apartments in Roselle. Their installation included a (4) camera surveillance system with DVR and a FOB access entry system. We are quite pleased with all aspects of their products and services and would highly recommend them.

Steve Haislet

I have used Forbel for my home and office, both security and audio video (AV) has been fantastic. They have met and exceeded my expectations time and time again. We love the technology of the new systems so much that we decided to completely switch our older system over. The remote access control, user management, HD security cameras, burglar alarm system controlled from smart phone, home automation features, surround sound speaker system. All these items have been incorporated into a system that is not only smart but reliable. Follow through by both the company owner and technicians is excellent. Technicians worked with us over a duration making changes and adjusting for personal preference and really felt everyone was trustworthy and very sincere to make the systems and technology something that wasn't cumbersome. I would recommend to anyone who is a busy professional and wants a company that will work to properly set expectations and meet/exceed.

Michael Rechitsky

We used Forbel Alarms for installation of high definition security cameras at our house, which I can access on the go from my phone and laptop. We also had issues with wifi coverage due to the size of the house. Forbel provided and installed new enterprise-grade Wi-Fi access points, and now we have super strong and fast wireless connection everywhere, even in the back yard. They also recommended and installed whole house sound system that is conveniently controlled from iPhone. I have had a fant

Sharon Hoyer

The Dill Pickle Co-op purchased an HD security camera from Forbel Alarms and we're really happy with the experience. The installation tech was quick and even did installation during our hours of operation with no disruption of business. Friendly, professional; great experience all around.

Christopher Andersen

Used their services a few times for work, copper, fiber, cameras, everything- Excellent! Thanks Guys! High standards, Willing to do any-everything need to get the job done right!

Dan Garofalo

Great product and great service! Dzmitry was a big help in explaining how to use the system.

Michael Staats

I was on the look out for a different home security system or monitoring group since my rates kept increasing with my previous service. I talked to Forbel and they were able to switch out my original control panel with a much newer and attractive touch screen control panel. Installation was done real quick and clean. All of my original sensors worked and there is an easy website and phone app to control the alarm. I was also able to setup specific push notifications, which I've never been able to do with other alarm systems. All in all, I've had a great and easy experience with Forbel and there weren't any hassles to deal with. They were upfront and honest about anything regards costs/monthly rates. I'll be sticking with them and might expand my security system with them since crime in my area seems to be increasing...

Oleg Boyko

We are Midwest-based Managed Service Provider and have been using Forbel for the past 5+ year. It's been a very satisfying experience. They've done multiple residential and commercial projects for our customers including assisted living facilities, nursing homes, professional offices, warehouse and manufacturing facilities. Forbel is the go-to vendor for us when we need to deploy intrusion alarm systems, high-definition security cameras, access control, and structured cabling for computers and wireless access points. They are quite competitive with pricing, provide modern solutions, always on time and bring no surprises with additional costs later in the project unlike many other companies we had to deal with. One very important point - their staff is very tidy, leaving the place sparkling clean after themselves.

Michael Somerville

We have worked with Forbel for a couple of years now and have always found them to be straight forward and easy to work with. They have replaced 5 legacy cameras with HD cameras at our school and have been supportive in helping us maintain/improve our camera network. I have no reservations recommending them to others.

George Zervos

Forbel replaced old cameras with new HD cameras for our gas station. Very happy with results as now we can see license plates and faces clearly. Professional installation and very neat cabling work. Highly recommended.

Edward Rom

Working with Forbel was a great experience. I had them install a very user friendly alarm system and zone controlled surround sound system in my home and they explained in depth how everything works step by step. Great communication and prompt installation.

Chad Gruen

Forbel handled our commercial facility/office. They installed a card reader system, security cameras, and a fire alarm system. These guys are great!

Ivan Vislavskiy

I don't know much about Security and Cameras installation and I don't want to know much. Guys from Forbel installed our security system and explained how everything works in one day. I’m very happy with the security panel which they helped me select. I can basically manage my security system from anywhere: my house, my phone, my computer. Even when someone calls the doorbell I can view the camera feed from my phone. All my neighbors are very jealous now. Every since the installation I feel that my house is a very safe place!

Matt Berry

Forbel Alarms, Inc. installed a fire alarm system and an intercom system at our recently completed 15 unit, 25,000 square foot adaptive reuse project in Evanston. Dzmitry and his crew were courteous, knowledgeable and capable. All facets of the work (bidding, system design and specification, drawing production, permit acquisition, installation and programming) were handled in a professional manner and the finished product looks and functions well. The process went smoothly and was completed on schedule. Dzmitry provided solid communication throughout. I highly recommend them.

Leo Goldyuk

Forbel installed a camera system for our shop. I am pleased to say that everything went smoothly and within budget. The team was very professional. Everything was installed perfectly. They set up all the software and when I had questions they were easy to reach for support. Wish all contractors weere this reliable and professional.

Justin Wycoff

If I could give Forbel 10 stars I would! Ran into a snag with some electronic schlage locks and what took us 2 months of calling tech support and banging our heads against the wall Vlad figured out in 2 hours and reprogrammed every door lock and reset up our system. Price was very reasonable and service was amazing. Definitely recommend!! Thanks guys!

Jesse Armenta

Forbel's owner Dzmitry was very helpful as this was my first time installing an alarm and sound system. Being a new business with lots of start up costs, he was also very sensitive in his pricing, making sure I got the best value. Follow up has been very good too. I would recommend Forbel to anyone in need of alarm, sound and or monitoring services.

David Greenstein

I have worked with Forbel in two contexts, one for my office and one for my home. I had very specific needs for both and they were able to create systems that met my needs perfectly. Their installers are very professional and able to handle any hiccups that might come up. Whether you are trying to create a high security area for your business or just give you peace of mind at home, Forbel can do it.

Mira Couture

I worked with Forbel for our speaker system when we built out a brand new location for our bridal business. They were significantly less expensive than many of the other companies I received quotes from and an absolute dream to work with! Dzimitry always answered my calls, worked around the GC's very tight (and every changing) timeline, he was professional and kind. We had an issue where the GC's team actually cut some of the low voltage wiring they had installed, and a couple of other issues with the team doing the build out, but he was very calm in handling all of them and worked with them to get the job done. I cannot say enough positive things about working with this business and Dzimitry. I would give them 10 stars if i could! I absolutely recommend them!

Adam Friedberg

My condo association just replaced our intercom system and Dzmitry from Forbel made the process easy as can be. His team was quick to quote and very responsive throughout the process. They did a great job installing and programming the new system and taught us how to program it for future use. Great experience, would highly recommend!

Garry Gruen

From start to finish their team took care of the smallest details. There number one concern was our satisfaction. Nothing was left to chance. They set up a plan, a budget and they met them. In fact they helped us with new ideas we never knew existed. Using Forbel was not only the right choice, it was the only choice.

Renee W

Very efficient company. Arrived on time and explained the details of installing the doorbell and all the steps involved.

Lucky World

super service ! great deals and best products, thank You guys for fast and prompt service

Emilia Nichols

I manage 20,000 square ft youth facility in Chicago. Throughout the day, we serve over 300 youth, and have over 10 staff all using technology at the same time. Before our work with Forbel Alarms, we had numerous issues with Internet connection. Our youth were constantly obtaining the passwords, adding multiple devices, and ultimately crashing the internet connections. We also had old, dated access points that never worked properly. When Dzmitry from Forbel Alarms came to the facility, he was able to walk me through the issues, and explain them in a way that I could understand. Forbel Alarms changed all the access points, provided me with software to monitor Wi-Fi use by members and trained me to use it. Since their services, our internet speed has improved, we have far fewer connection issues, and in the few instances that we needed assistance, Forbel Alarms sent someone out immediately for tech support. I would highly recommend Forbel Alarms for any internet connection projects, and will use them for all our future connection needs.

Igor Chudov

Security is a piece of mind and with Forbel you can be confident you will have it. Three years ago they have set up security system for our home. It was easier than I thought and very professional. They have explained where and why they have placed sensors, trouble shoot the system with us and show us how to use it. Ever since if I had any issues or questions the speed they were resolved is outstanding. Week ago they have installed the smart door lock for us and connected it to the same app, as usual, quick, professional and easy. I am very happy with Forbel and highly recommend them if you want to be confident in your security and have highly determined guys work for you.

Martin Barr

Forbel installed a sidewalk intercom for our 4-unit building. We received a good price and quality seems good. Dzmitry not only gave us a good price on the intercom but he also informed us that we could save a lot of money by using RCN Business instead of our former provider for the telephone line connected to the intercom. He also sent his crew back several times without complaint because there were installation problems that turned out to be caused by the RCN plan we signed up for.

Nick Medica

Everything was fixed and resolved!

Lena Shvartsman

Amazing customer service. All equipment is very user friendly. Every technician that assisted me with installation of my security system was knowledgeable and helpful, patiently educating me on the use of the equipment. I highly recommend this company.

Andrius Talandzevicius

Awesome company to work with! Great service and attitude!

Bill S

We have been working with Forbel for approximately 5 years at multiple locations. We are extremely satisfied with their products, professionalism and outstanding service. I would recommend Forbel in a heart beat!

Beth Kuk

I would recommend Forbel to anyone looking for a solid security system for their commercial warehouse/office needs! From explaining how the systems work, to installation and monitoring, Forbel made the transition very easy for the company I work for.

Michael Campea

Pleased with the install and equipment. The team was able to effectively deal with ever challenge our building posed to setting up our system. They were also approachable, responsive and overall easy to work with. Dzmitry is an outstanding project manager who kept the work moving and took the time to educate us about the system. Anyone who gets to work with him is lucky to have him. Overall, very happy with the work, customer service, and system. Thank you, Forbel.

Gene Milman

Forbel installed the security system in our office and they did a phenomenal job! Work was done very efficiently and carefully, the guys were very professional as well. We're all very happy with the service and system they set up. I'd definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking to get a security system installed.

Andrey Lomsky

Extremely satisfied with Forbel. From start to finish they were always on time and available when needed. I couldn't be happier.

Alex Goldyuk

A professional experience. If you have any doubts in your security the folks over here will take care of you.

Jason Stover

Forbel Custom Security Solutions did a outstanding job with keyless entry of our business in Elk Grove Village IL. They were very timely, very clean work and got the job done quickly. They did a total of three entry doors at my facility which employs around 125 people. Not a single issue 3- weeks in. I highly recommend!

Mitch Bowlin

Great pricing, excellent customer service, responsiveness, and very quick turn around time. Highly recommended.

Matt Greiner

Forbel set up our security system, Sonos system (with 8 zones, including two surround sound TV setups) and wireless internet hubs during the gut rehab construction of our home. They were professional, timely, knowledgeable and did a great job communication best options and pricing. We have been back in our house for about a year now and couldn't be happier with the work they did. Dzmitry and Vlad have been very responsive to the few issues we've had as well. Five stars, highly reccommend!

GREGWATCHMAN

Great customer service! They have the knowledge and experience to back up their work.

Anna Koretskov

Used Forbel Alarms at home and office, they are professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and quick to respond to clients needs and wishes

Andrea Napchan

We have been very pleased with the companies product and service. The alarm system is easy to use and works well. We also have a camera system to see all around our house. We had problems at first (I think it was our fault but am not sure) but they continued to come out until the problem was fixed. Dzymitri and his team are patient, not pushy, and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone.

Kyle K.

Providing great service to the clients is their first priority and that’s what separates Forbel from other companies.
