Why Choose Us for Security Systems in Chicago

At Active Alarm, we don’t believe in the cookie-cutter approach to residential or commercial alarm systems. Your property is unlike any other, and your security should be too.

That’s why for 50 years, we’ve been creating custom packages for our customers that suit their individual properties. By carefully assessing your security needs, listening to your concerns and priorities, and working within your budget, we’re able to create a security system that gives you the protection you need at a reasonable price.

We Do More Than Installations

When you choose Active Alarm for your Chicago security systems, you get more than a keypad and a control panel. That’s because we don’t just install the best security equipment available—we service, monitor, and maintain it, so you can rest assured that your property is secure day and night.

We employ our own staff of experienced service technicians, so you know that your alarm system is in the hands of some of the most skilled security professionals in the Chicago area. We also offer daily system health and connectivity tests on all of your equipment, so you don’t have to wonder whether or not it’s working—we’re always there, keeping you and your property safe.

Rapid Response When You Need It Most

Our UL-approved monitoring station is located in Elk Grove Village, so when an emergency arises, you have local professionals looking out for you—no matter where you are.

Our 24-hour monitoring station is committed to rapid response, and our team is trained to follow industry standard protocols for contacting both you and local authorities. This is the reliability that has made Active Alarm one of the leading names in residential and commercial alarm systems in Chicago for decades, and it can make the difference in keeping your property safe and secure.
