Sonitrol Chicagoland West
Sonitrol Chicagoland West is a locally owned and operated franchise affiliated with Sonitrol Corporation of Stanley Works. The company was founded in 1986 by Frank Clarke, his father – John and, the principals of Sonitrol of Baton Rouge and Lafayette. In 1988 Jim Buckalew, one of the Louisiana principals, joined the company as Chairman and President.
Starting from scratch Sonitrol Chicagoland West has built a substantial customer base in the Chicagoland area by providing Sonitrol’s unique “verified audio detection”, Sonavision video monitoring and mySonitrol central station managed access control. In addition, the company provides complementary integrated electronic security solutions and services in IP access control, CCTV, industrial process and environmental monitoring and, UL fire monitoring and services.
The crux of our security services is provided by our local Sonitrol central station and our security professionals. Unlike our competitors who operate largely out of state central stations or contract their monitoring to third parties, our local central station, service and sales office allows us to know our customers and to respond to their security needs in a timely manner.
As important as our “verified audio detection” and local central station are – equally important is our “Commitment to Service”. Our “Commitment to Service” is also unique in the security industry. Every employee at Sonitrol Chicagoland West is responsible for and dedicated to customer service. Our staff averages over 10 years of tenure with the company; commitment to customer service is in our DNA. Our Standard is EXCELLENCE and our Goal is to BUILD CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS FOR LIFE BY EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS. We appreciate your business and the opportunity to serve you.
Security with a Sound Advantage: Alarm Verification
Sonitrol provides businesses with a single source of integrated, state-of-the-art security solutions for intrusion, video, access and fire, all backed with professional monitoring by experienced, trained personnel.
Our technology sets us apart. The ability to verify an alarm event in real time gives Sonitrol unrivaled credibility with local law enforcement. That is a key advantage as a growing number of municipalities pass Verified Response regulations requiring verification that an intrusion is actually taking place before police will dispatch personnel to the site.
Sonitrol has the best apprehension rate in the industry – and the fewest dispatches for false alarms. In fact, in January 2006, Lehman Brothers named Sonitrol “the leading alarm verification company.” And our integrated components allow us to customize a solution that can expand easily as your needs grow.
