The parent company of Compound Security Specialists, Auto Gate, was established in 1988 in Austin Texas.  Auto Gate began with two people, two worn-out trucks, and two old welding machines.  Those two trucks are long since gone, but one welding machine is still in use today!  As the Automatic Gate Industry has grown, so have we.  Our 39 plus employees have over 165 years of combined experience in the sales, service, and installation of automatic gates.  Compound Security Specialists' product line has expanded over the years and we now offer CCTV (closed circuit television) sales and service, full access control systems (card readers, finger print, retina scanners, etc.), church video surveillance systems, and more.

We have become one of the largest companies of our kind in Texas. We proudly service many industries, including multi-family, private home, commercial, mini-storages, churches, electric co-ops, and city facilities including emergency services and water departments.  Our Service Department handles over 150 service calls weekly.

Compound Security Specialists and Auto Gate fabricate 100% of the iron and steel products we install.  Along with our state-or-the-art fabrication shop, we also have 7 mobile welding rigs for portable fabrication and installation.  With our talented welding team, we can produce everything from ornamental iron gates to one-of-a-kind items, and quickly fill large production runs.  From the design state through the final installation and painting, Compound Security Specialists is truly your one-stop shop for welding, fabrication, access controls, and CCTV.  If you can dream it, we can probably build it.
