Forbel designed an integrated system and customized packages including HD cameras, access control, intrusion alarm, and fire alarm systems, and structured cabling.
Forbel developed, designed, and installed a complex security system that incorporated HD video surveillance and access control – smart card readers for several doors.
Forbel suggested and successfully installed an IP-based smart video-intercom system that allowed it to receive calls on variable mobile devices as well as notifications.
Forbel designed a customizable and cloud-managed security system consolidating intrusion, fire detection and alarm system, access control solution, and HD cameras.
Forbel made sure the HD IP cameras had special technology to fight low light conditions and made sure they contained dynamic range technology to allow for a better range and image in non-evenly lit places.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Forbel installed an alarm system at my warehouse at a very reasonable cost.

Alarm systems have multiple components, each requiring a different type of wire. The keypad and main control panel, for example, need a steady flow of power that is best delivered via a 22/4 security wire and a Cat5e or Cat6 cable. Other auxiliary devices such as motion and smoke detectors and door and window sensors require 4-conductor, 22 AWG firewire. For sirens as well as ground wiring, it is recommended to use 18 AWG security wire with 2 conductors.
Determining the value of an alarm system in your home or business can be quite subjective in a way, depending on your goals. Objectively speaking, alarm systems can be a deterrent from crime, significantly reducing the chance of a burglar breaking in. By installing a smoke/carbon monoxide detector, you can also prevent fires from happening or reduce the extent of the damage. If your goal is to reduce/prevent the loss of life or property, then an alarm system will most certainly be a worthwhile investment.
There are a number of choices for security systems currently out in the market today. According to security.org, the top 5 best security systems are: - SimpliSafe – Best Business Security System - Vivint – Best Smart Business Security - ADT – Best Commercial Grade Security - Frontpoint – Best for Small Business - Lorex – Best Security Cameras for Business
The cost of an alarm system depends on multiple factors. One of the biggest factors that influence its cost is the price of the equipment used in the system. These include the price for the security cameras, motion sensors, smoke detectors, and monitoring systems.

Aside from doing its actual job of sounding an alarm or notifying authorities when something happens, security systems are most effective as a deterrent for crime. Researchers are Rutgers University found that having a security system installed in your home or business can decrease the crime rate because burglars tend to lose interest in houses that have security systems installed.
