CGL Electronic Security was founded in 1998 with a vision; to deliver outstanding security service to customers with widely differing needs in a range of business environments. Never losing sight of that goal, we are proud to say that our commitment to customer service continues to drive forward our business mission today. In fact, by placing the customer at the center of all that we do, and with more than 2,500 separate systems installed to date, CGL has evolved into New England’s leading independent security systems integrator.
Headquartered in Westwood, Massachusetts, we are represented by a team of insightful and hardworking professionals who know exactly how essential security is to your success. At CGL, we don’t just install your security systems; we solve your business problems.

We have repeatedly demonstrated our strength in forging solid and secure relationships with clients, many of whom have trusted in our services since our operations began. At CGL, we are very clear about what we do; we deliver superior solutions focused upon the needs of the end user, our customer.

We pride ourselves upon fostering an environment that openly encourages teamwork and interaction between all company personal. Senior management openly collaborates on a daily basis with all employees, resulting in a corporate culture of transparency and trust; and the delivery of a superior product every time.
Being the best at what we do is our daily motivation and we are keenly focused on constant improvement and growth. At CGL we have always reinvested in our company, not only in terms of facilities and equipment, but also in the continued training and education of our employees. We view this commitment as an investment in stability, resulting in an enviably high retention rate; many of our employees have been with us since the day we opened our doors.

We have been providing our clients with peace of mind since 1998. At CGL, our customers are our first priority, which is why we believe it is our job to provide you with more than a physical security management system. Aside from installing and maintaining security platforms, our experienced management team is prepared to deliver reliable top-notch service to our customers.
The CGL Team, which includes Engineers, Project Managers, and Software Support Technicians, has decades of IT security system integration experience under its belt. Furthermore, all CGL Technicians are certified by our manufacturers. We understand that providing an effective and efficient security system does not equivocate to just using the best equipment, but rather encompasses up-to- date technology, business strategy and customer relationships.
At CGL, we have a Dedicated Service Department that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our Service Department works closely with our Project Managers and Technicians to provide systematized and uninterrupted service when issues arise. We take great pride in providing our customers with excellent service.
Our team of Project Managers, Technicians, and Apprentice Technicians use Collaborative Site Surveys and Security System Designs to carefully track progress every step of the way. In addition, our Installation Process is unique in that we will provide you with a personalized CAD drawing of your security system. These tools, in combination with CAD drawings, allow everyone – CGL and our customers – to visualize and understand the desired completed project.
Our service vehicles function as mobile warehouses, and are stocked with $10,000 worth of equipment. Some of this equipment includes card readers, cameras, control panels, and more. Thanks to our service vans, our Technicians are always prepared to install, repair, or replace even the most complex security management systems.
At CGL we stress the importance of operating in accordance with our core values: integrity, respect, customer focus, teamwork, and quality. Every single person on the CGL Team incorporates these core values into their daily work – from installing security systems to behind-the- scenes operations to running on-site training to answering service calls. We attribute our success as the leader of Electronic Security Integration to our commitment to these values.
