About Us

Innovation By Design

Good enough is never enough.

At Clinton, we are driven by a singular vision – produce great products. It may sound simple, but it’s at the forefront of everything we do. Many products are born out of necessity, but the great ones challenge the status quo. We like to make products THAT didn’t exist before and ones that create new opportunities for our customers. We always strive for products that ARE easy to install and a pleasure to use. The quest to be the best is a never ending and sometimes exhaustive road, But it’s a pillar of our success.

USA All The Way

Do you put your trust IN Communist China?

If not, then why buy from companies that do? Clinton Electronics is a family owned and operated American based company that does not put its faith & trust into China. Our core products are designed and developed by us right here in the USA. We also work closely with our contract assemblers and material suppliers in South Korea & Taiwan (both free trade countries). Since 1963, Clinton has been manufacturing & assembling great products in its Loves Park, Illinois factory and continues to do so today with our ever-popular Vandal X Camera line. When it comes to security, why would anyone put their trust IN China?

Battle Tested

All of our products are “battle tested.”

We firmly believe that to deliver a great product one must spend a lot of time not just perfecting the design but actually using the product. That is why we put a great deal of time and effort into research, design and testing. We never deliver half-baked goods. if a product is not ready it will not be released, period. A great product must be thoroughly tested. Want proof? Look no further than our “HD Over Coax” shootout video where we test EX-SDI, HD-TVI, HD-CVI, & AHD in a wide variety of lighting conditions and test scenarios to show you real world image results.

Custom Made

Out of the thousands of security products to choose from, how many are custom made just for you?

At Clinton, a big portion of our business is based on designing & manufacturing custom made products for both the CCTV and Video Display industries. It’s what we do and it’s a big part of who we are. We have designed and manufactured hundreds of custom products for the security, retail, medical, military, and digital signage industries. Have an idea or need a custom built product just for you?
