About Us

Since 1963,

“good enough” has never been enough.

At Clinton, we are united by a single goal: to create great products. It may appear simple, but it is at the heart of everything we do. Many products are created out of necessity, but the truly great ones challenge the status quo. We like to create products that didn’t exist before and ones that open up new possibilities for our customers. We always strive to create products that are simple to install and enjoyable to use. The pursuit of excellence is a never-ending and sometimes exhausting journey, but it is essential to our success.

Clinton Electronics has been a family-owned and operated American company since 1963. From our early days as a CRT manufacturer to our current status as a CCTV equipment manufacturer, we have focused on delivering a high-quality, long-lasting product.

Our core products are designed and developed in the United States. and are contract assembled by our long-standing partners in South Korea and Taiwan (both free trade countries).

Why not China, you might ask? While our competitors have resorted to manufacturing In China, Clinton has long believed that China should not be trusted, particularly when it comes to security equipment. Because of this, 99% of our product line is not manufactured in China.

While we will never be the cheapest option. You can trust that we will provide a high-quality, long-lasting product. We are firm believers that in order to deliver a great product, one must devote significant time not only to perfecting the design but also to actually using the product. That is why we invest so much time and energy in research, design, and testing. We never ship half-baked goods. A product will not be released if it is not ready. A great product must be thoroughly tested. After all, “good enough” has never been enough…
