Quality Surveillance Systems Deter Theft, Fraud, and Vandalism

Burglars are known for their cunning ability to find and identify easy targets. Whether those targets are people or businesses, there are usually various ways to deter these criminals. One of the easiest ways business owners can protect their commercial properties is by using commercial security camera systems.

A study from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte identified cameras as a key deterrent in keeping burglars at bay. At SMG Security, providing crime-deterrent video surveillance systems for businesses and homes has always been one of our specialties. Now, our ability to deliver the highest quality security has been enhanced through our association with Genetec.

SMG Security is a dealer for Genetec, a leader in video surveillance and security technology. Genetec’s advanced industry technology integrates video surveillance, access control, and vehicle tracking into their Security Center. This collaborative platform enables you to monitor and manage security using one system on a single interface.

Improve Your Business Security with VIVOTEK

Working with Genetec, users can also benefit from the VIVOTEK Deep Learning plugin and video content analysis (VCA) suite. This is a high accuracy, smart-edge AI-powered video analytics system.

Through the Genetec Security Center, recorded video can be searched by metadata based on VCA rules. This includes things like smart motion detection, intrusion detection, loitering detection, and line crossing detection. These advancements allow users to search through large amounts of recorded video content for singular objects or physical actions/motions. For example, loitering for a pre-set length of time, or entering a critical location, would be cataloged and searchable.

With the VIVOTEK VCA plugin, users are able to specify critical zones that require additional security. Chunks of video footage can also be easily exported.

Beyond Genetec’s innovation, SMG Security’s commercial security cameras offer Chicago residents unlimited access to camera footage. This way, you’re always able to see what’s going on at your place of business even when you’re not there.

With one of our highly advanced camera systems, you’ll receive video alerts whenever someone enters the building or triggers an alarm. You can also use the surveillance cameras to check on the safety of your employees any time you wish. Additionally, we offer central station monitoring services to provide an accessible view of every camera.

We manage these systems on multiple servers using cross-server synchronization. Even if a server crashes, the failover feature prevents the loss of data and settings. These redundancies ensure you’ll never experience an interruption in your service.

Superior Software

Digital IP camera systems and management software provide business owners with more access to their security systems than ever before. They allow you to view your property from any computer, smartphone, or tablet in high definition.

At SMG Security, our systems include interactive software that can run on Windows, macOS, and Linux. This cross platform compatibility allows you to run the software on virtually any existing systems you have in place.

Our software can also be integrated with third-party devices that offer additional security capabilities. These may include video analytics systems, cloud servers, and access control systems in Chicago.

Modern Technology & Higher Security for Commercial Buildings

Our modern commercial security cameras in Chicago switch seamlessly between live and recorded video. Additionally, SMG Security’s CCTV systems allow you to simplify video storage by privately archiving data.

Better analytic tools mean that video surveillance is evolving from reactive monitoring to proactive solutions. At SMG Security, our camera systems address all of your security needs by allowing you to respond quickly to critical events. They also enable you to better understand how your organization operates and how your customers behave. Additionally, by creating a dynamic virtual map of your business, SMG Security allows you to easily track activity by location.

In Their Words

Thanks for your help with this process! Your install team was amazing! They were extremely efficient and we hardly knew they were there. Great guys who took the time to show us how to use the system and answered all our questions. I’m sure I will have some for them down the road. Big thanks to you and your team!

- Frank M.

The installation crew that was here was FABULOUS!!! I didn’t even know they were here most of the time. There was no doubt in my mind that they knew what they were doing. You have no idea how comforting that is. As I’m sure you know, that isn’t always the case when there are technicians in the building. It went very smoothly and we’re so grateful for that! Please extend my gratitude and appreciation for the job they did. I knew we made the right decision!

We used SMG for monitoring services for our home for 35 years (!) and were consistently well served and attended to. Calls were always picked up promptly, and the service attendants never failed to immediately call to check in on us if the alarm was ever triggered (99% of the time were false alarms we generated...oops...). Service technicians were very competent as well. Highly recommend.

- J. Winstein

Recently switched my monitoring service company for an Elk Grove location. These guys gave me the best quote for an affordable system! Great company!

A short note to tell you about the great customer service provided by your staff. We moved to Wheaton in August 2019 to a townhome that had an older SMG System. Anthony came out and explained the SMG capabilities, John updated the system and Dave has been by several times to troubleshoot and solve problems. The three are real professionals and know what they are doing. The administrative staff on the phone are always very helpful and professional. Please thank them for their service.

- M. Thomas

Your employees, from the start through completion of the job, were professional and concise in the performance of their work... From the first contact through the end of the project Christian kept me informed, answered all of my questions, and guided me in having the correct system installed... They were indeed professional, polite, kept their work area tidy and worked around all of the functions we had going on at the church. I am especially grateful for these men being on our job as they are the face of your company and they represented you well.

I wanted to take a moment to share with you some good news you may not hear every day but I am sure you will welcome. Your team completed the installation of the security system in Bethel. They were professional and followed our safety, security and Covid-19 protocols to the letter. Throughout the installation, communication was great and the team was very friendly and helpful. In particular, I want to call out Dino for his great customer service. Thanks.

Awesome. I just wanted to pass along that the fire alarm test yesterday was without a doubt one of the best I have ever witnessed. The crews had everything set up and ready to go and were even asking me questions about the programming before we started so they could get the changes made. They had no issues with some of the changes I requested due to our local codes and immediately corrected them. Absolutely everything went smoothly and the guys were great to work with. I really hope I get to work with them again.

- Richard T., Palatine Community Health Center

Your team just left and I wanted to take a moment to say how great both Armando and Mike were during the camera installation process. Everything is up and running and I could not be more pleased.
