We started as an iron gate shop in Garden Grove, Southern California, installing and servicing automated vehicle gates. There was room for two work trucks in the shop and the space the left behind was the original iron fabrication shop. The company founder worked on gate installs and putting out quotes becoming a go-to service provider of iron & pedestrian gates, operators, barrier arms, spike units, loop detection and anti-entrapment. We garnered a reputation for gate automation expertise and service in SoCal and have built on the knowledge of the gate technicians, fabricators, and managers who are still with us today.

New ownership takes over California Gate and Entry Systems as the founder retires. This added to the company decades of experience in Internet systems and high/low voltage. As technology inevitably progresses, we followed suit. The company’s first foray into access control and guest entry systems was with Windsor apartments, with installation help by the new owner himself. Before new ownership, California Gate installs of entry phones were few and far between. Soon the Technology side of our company had a whole installation & service department dedicated to low-voltage systems, software and database programming.
Technology work has grown and gate automation systems and integrations along with it. More hands on deck are needed for the larger projects we perform for new developments, HOA, industrial, commercial, and multi-family markets. We expanded to Access Control Server Hosting, database backups and management, large-scale camera systems such as community-wide fiber optic networks with NVR server racks, complicated automation integrations and relay systems for guardhouses, IP intercoms, visitor management, pay parking and parking guidance systems.
