CCTV systems are not only one of the most secure and reliable security solutions but are also a critical component of any modern loss prevention security system. With CCTV cameras, you can keep your staff, property, and assets safe, as well as monitor the happenings at your location for a smooth-running business. By installing the best commercial video surveillance system for your business, you can work to minimize vandalism, violence, and employee theft while also getting more control over who has access to your location.

Rest assured that we have the latest technology for our security systems in a range of price points. Whether you're looking to implement software and an app to connect your systems or you're interested in another type of system, our goal is always to prevent crime and keep criminals from impacting your company.

  • Access control to keep customers safe and to prevent crime: When we install security cameras, we can help you keep an eye on your business at all times and send you timely alerts if suspicious activity is detected.
  • Minimize business liability: Our security cameras can make sure that you have access to clear and easily accessible recordings in case you need to disprove any false claims.
  • Assist your security guards: When you combine a security camera system with your on-site security guards, they are able to access more of your property at once.
  • Remotely monitor your property: Security camera installation allows you to meet your safety protocols and enforce quality control around the clock. 

Video Surveillance from Chicago Certified Security Company

We Design Security Camera Systems!

Each security camera system that we install must be well thought out as what works for one company might not work for another. Before we move forward with camera installation and equipment on your property, we will work with relevant parties within your company to understand various access points and your unique needs. We also tailor our security camera system based on the level of security that you want; some companies are looking for light levels of security while others are ready to invest in countless security cameras and security systems that cover every inch of their property.

Our unique design process involves many separate services of technical security and engineering to maximize impact and results. Our security camera installers always work with you to lay out a comprehensive security system plan and help you set achievable goals on who can access your business and property. As a result, your customized business security system can give you enhanced peace of mind that your property is always safe.

The first step when designing a security system must be the technical security assessment which is a key component of the consulting process. Site surveys must be conducted to best analyze the type of security system that each facility requires. We define the security needs and the critical points of your existing system to identify future opportunities for more efficient security performance.
A security specialist will outline a security system plan and guide you on what equipment to use and where to install it. A security system layout plan will cover video surveillance, intercoms and door entry, fire alarms, electronic access control, and an all-encompassing commercial audio/video and other security features to ensure your property is safe. Forbel works with the best equipment brands. We communicate with our clients to define their exact security needs, suggest the best security solutions, and lay out the basic drawings of the future project so our clients can visualize the security goal.
In the same way, as no one would build a house without an architect, security specialists are the architects of your security system. At Forbel we use computer-aided drawings to map out alarm system designs, access control system designs, video surveillance designs, and role-based access control system designs so you can envision your security goals. We work with our clients to modify as we go along to ensure that the security documents we have prepared align with the security needs of our clients. When preparing CADs for our clients, we make sure they are easily understood, and we maintain control over the sensitive information to ensure total privacy.
Once all the drawings have been presented and approved, we move on to the next phase — security implementation. We coordinate with our clients, and we cooperate with security equipment suppliers and installers, to provide the best integrated security systems with winning results. It is our business model to ensure we offer superior service coupled with security equipment and integrated systems that our clients can completely rely on.
We manage every project with attention to detail from start to finish. We are in constant communication with developers, contractors, designers, architects, elevator installers, electricians, and suppliers to ensure the smooth implementation of every security system design. Our priority is to ensure that the project yields the best results and that all equipment is installed in full accordance with legal requirements, blueprints, and architectural and design layouts in mind.

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.
