How We Can Help

Access Control & Visitor Management

Have direct and instant communication with students, staff, and visitors.

Video Surveillance

Have eyes on your school or campus at all times.

What we do for schools big and small

Schools should be a place where students can grow, learn, and most importantly, feel safe. Thompson Electronics Company in Peoria and Naperville provides mission-critical educational ecosystems. These include school access control, intercom, and security systems. Those along with intelligent software, video surveillance, sound systems, and the servicing of all systems help schools manage both everyday and critical emergencies. TEC provides custom solutions for every area of the school including theaters and auditoriums, gyms, athletic, tracks and football fields, stadiums, and entire school integrations.

When technologies communicate and learn from each other, safety and performance will improve across the entire school or campus.
