Silmar Electronics was founded in 1963 by my father, Jorge M. Smith, an electronics engineer who immigrated to Miami from Cuba in 1960. When he first established the business, his primary focus was the manufacturing of eavesdropping devices; however, when the privacy laws of 1968 were enacted, he immediately changed the direction of the company and became a wholesale distributor and installer of low voltage equipment. In 1974, the installation division was eliminated and the business was dedicated exclusively to wholesale distribution.
Today, Silmar Electronics is one of the largest independent equipment distributors for security systems, fire alarms, CCTV, access control, home automation, and A/V systems in the United States. Headquartered in Miami with six additional locations throughout Florida and two branches in South Carolina, we have the products and resources you need to make that next job happen.
