Our History

Walsh Electronic Security specializes in design, installation, and service of access control and video surveillance systems in Iowa and the Midwest. Parent company, Walsh Door & Hardware, has roots going back to 1866 and is currently a 5th generation Iowa family owned business. With 150 years of expertise and satisfying the needs of customers, Walsh Electronic Security has evolved with the security market, especially regarding electrified commercial door hardware.

In the past doors were secured using a standard key; today those keys have evolved into highly sophisticated card access systems integrated with video surveillance. As these products evolved, Walsh Door & Hardware realized a unique marketplace niche. Traditionally, doors, frames, and hardware were supplied through a distributor, like Walsh Door & Hardware. Access control and video surveillance products were supplied by a separate company.

Because of problems and lack of communication between suppliers and different installers for the various components, Walsh Door & Hardware brought these entities under one umbrella. Walsh hired industry experienced access and video technicians, engineers, and project managers to work side-by-side with our door, frame, and hardware project managers. Now you, the customer, have a much better product and service that is unmatched in the industry.
