This is not your usual alarm company. When you call for service you get to speak to a real person who either helps your right away or has someone else call you back. You're not going to get this personal treatment from ADT!


What a good feeling! by

We're so glad we shopped around for a security system instead of just going with ADT. These people know their stuff and are very easy to work with.

I opened a new business in Lombard. Chicago F & B held my hand through the entire process of Fire Alarm regulations, installation, etc. These guys know their stuff. So many phone calls back and forth and always friendly and willing to listen.

They expedited an installation in 7 working days

Danny Wood, 2015-09-14

The village in which my new business is located required a fire alarm be installed before I could open the doors. Chicago Fire Detection expedited an installation in 7 working days, addressing village code, final inspection, and allowing me to take advantage of my peak seasonal business. Well Done and Thanks!

Had a camera system installed and was impressed with the professionalism and quality workmanship provided by the installation department. Tom the managing Director is very knowledgeable and was extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

I use Chicago Fire and Burglar to protect my home. Their customer service is excellent. Everyone I've interacted with from their office has been an absolute delight. Also, the installation process was very simple and I've never had to deal with any weird false alarms or anything. It gives me peace of mind to know my home is safe - I swear just having the sign in the yard and the sticker on our windows is enough to send any criminals looking for a new house to break into.

Custom Install by

Dean Brundage, 2015-06-29

Very happy with the equipment and installation. No two sided tape with exposed magnets or wiring. All contacts were hidden. Had a poorly installed system in Wisconsin which had magnet falling off.

Very Happy! by

Would highly recommend. Was sold by the owner and felt very comfortable with his knowledge and demeanor. Have already recommended them to others.
