Who We Are

Thompson Electronics Company specializes in design, project management, installation and service of business electronic systems. Since 1980, our superior record is maintained by providing specialized project teams keyed to each general technology area that we serve including audio visual, VoIP communication systems, emergency communication systems, security and surveillance, life safety systems, and service repair and maintenance.

We take business technology to a higher level and strive to build connections with our customers in order to advise and provide solutions that simplify daily operations, enhance communication, and assist with safety and security.

Featured Solutions

Video Surveillance

In addition to providing video surveillance system design and installation services, our company can evaluate and optimize your existing network to create a state-of-the-art IP video surveillance solution.

Smoke and Fire Alarms

Commercial fire alarm systems, interconnected smoke alarms, and control panels are vital components of any facility’s life safety system. We employ certified technicians to install, test, and inspect these systems.

Video Conferencing

As part of our audio and video capabilities, we provide professional-grade conferencing systems that create meaningful, face-to-face interactions that enable users to conduct productive, free-flowing meetings.

Nurse Call Stations

Nurse call stations are an integral component of today’s ever-evolving emergency notification and security system technology. Such systems are often combined to address fall detection and door alarm monitoring.

Engineering and Design

We are able to apply the proper engineering and design framework to fit the unique needs of each customer, whether the project involves a commercial security system, life safety system, or theatre sound system.

System Inspection and Testing

Whether it’s a company-wide fire suppression system or standalone carbon monoxide detector, we staff licensed professionals who provide comprehensive testing and inspection solutions in accordance with NFPA standards.
