For basic business security, these systems offer a few cameras, local recording, and a user-friendly setup. Think limited features like wired connections and standard video quality, but at a budget-friendly price. Great for entry points, basic monitoring, and those prioritizing affordability and ease of use. Remember, "simple" is subjective, so assess your needs for the perfect fit!
These systems use artificial intelligence to analyze video footage and identify people, objects, and activities. This can help to improve security by enabling proactive measures and reducing false alarms. Features like facial recognition, object detection, and anomaly detection are becoming standard in these systems.
These systems store video footage in the cloud, rather than on-site servers. This offers several advantages, such as scalability, remote access, and easier system management. Cloud storage also eliminates the need for on-site servers and simplifies maintenance.
These systems use cameras with high resolutions, such as 4K and even 8K. This provides exceptional image clarity for zoom and identification, even in challenging conditions. Cameras with features like wide dynamic range and low-light performance are also becoming increasingly common in these systems.
These systems integrate with other security systems, such as access control systems, intrusion detection systems, and building management systems. This creates a unified security network for centralized monitoring and control.

FAQ: Professional Video Surveillance Installation

Which brand of video security cameras is thought to be the best on the market?

Although there are many security systems available on the market, not all are created equal. Some of the top camera companies include Ava, Pelco, Avigilon, Rhombus, Cisco Meraki, Milestone, ADT, OpenEye, Swann, and Camio.

Which Security Systems often Come in Pairs with Video Surveillance to Improve Security?

Access control systems and video surveillance technology are often paired with one another, creating a robust business security system useful for many business types. Although access control is usually the first step, many of these systems don't have the right visibility to confirm identities most accurately. Integrating these systems helps teams prevent the back and forth between platforms and streamlines everything into one interface.

What's the Difference between Surveillance Cameras and Security Cameras?

It's important to understand the difference between these two terms as they're often used interchangeably. The main difference between the two is the purpose of each; security cameras are designed to look over more than one area within a building by on-site personnel via a control center. These are in public areas and aren't disguised. Surveillance cameras, on the other hand, are more hidden and they aim to capture video footage as evidence, often detecting motion within a particular area.

Will the cameras work if there’s a power outage?

This is an important question! Our team will secure your property with measures to ensure your space is secure with cameras that can operate in various scenarios, including power outages. For more on how this is done, contact our experts, and they will share more details!

How much does it cost to install a CCTV system in Chicago?

The cost of CCTV installation in Chicago depends on the number of cameras you need, the type of video surveillance you’ve selected, as well as the size of your property. Yes, those are a lot of factors! Before we begin a project, our team will provide an estimate, sharing a budget-friendly solution for your property. To find out how much your security solutions will cost, contact us at 847-595-1900 today.

How long does it take to install security cameras?

Great question! At Forbel, we understand that efficiency is key, especially when it comes to business operations. For this reason, our team will work quickly yet accurately to install your CCTV systems. However, the exact amount of time it will take depends on the intricacies of your unique project, but our experts will provide an estimate before we begin.

Do you upgrade security camera systems in the Chicago Area?

Yes, our team at Forbel can upgrade existing video surveillance cameras to the latest and greatest technology for anyone in the Chicagoland area, including suburbs such as Elk Grove Village, Northbrook, Lake Bluff, Oak Brook, and Wood Dale.

Do you offer wireless security cameras in the Chicago area?

As a matter of fact, we do. As technology continues to advance, so do our security system options. We are happy to install a wireless system if it will better suit your business. Please mention your interest in wireless systems while we are deciding what system type is best for you.

How much does it cost to have a camera system installed?

The cost is dependent on how big the system is and what equipment is being used. On average, a basic system will cost about $1,500, but the more cameras involved, the more expensive the system is going to be.

How long does it take to install security cameras?

The specific project timeline depends on the needs of your business. For small projects, we can typically install security cameras in as little as one day. Larger projects will need to be scheduled ahead of time and may take days or even weeks depending on the scope of the project. Our team will keep you updated as the timeline progresses.

Do you offer video surveillance installation for businesses?

Yes! There is nothing more important to us than helping local Chicago businesses with any and all of their security needs. We will work with you to find the right system for your budget and security purposes and help answer your questions throughout the process.
