The name evolved to Time Equipment of Miami

which became TEM Systems, Inc.

If you have driven through a gate system in Florida, it is likely that it was designed and installed by our team. As a pioneer of automated gate systems in the State of Florida, we are humbled to be considered an expert in this field. As we anticipated other methods of controlling access and active surveillance systems that could be integrated with the gate security systems, we were continually evolving into a complete systems integrator. Motivated by providing our customers with the most advanced security integration solutions to meet their needs, we continue to be on the forefront of new technologies and best practices. Our solutions range in size and scope from simple, stand-alone alarm systems to fully integrated, networkable security platforms.

A reputation built on service is a TEM tradition that has endured for 60 years. The company operates one of the largest fleets of fully-equipped security service vehicles in the industry. The branch office locations are strategically placed throughout the state of Florida to help reduce response times. Our technicians are factory trained and certified. Our visitor management software support team can dial into customer locations to provide remote, real-time support. Our hardware and software support agreements are tailored to meet specific customer needs.
