About Us

   Hartmann Controls is a privately held Canadian company formed in 1998.  We pride ourselves on delivering highly advanced hardware and cutting edge software. Rather than a first-to-market philosophy, we take an as-fast-to-market as possible approach, while never compromising the security and stability of our product.

   Over the years, Hartmann Controls has had its products installed in a variety of settings, including military, educational, commercial, institutional, health care and property management, among others.

  Our product offering has grown from one line to multiple lines with new products and features being added regularly.

  Being a private company means no bureaucratic bloating allowing quick response to dealers needs as well as the ability to provide highly competitive pricing.

  All Hartmann Controls Software packages and Controllers are designed and manufactured in-house by Hartmann Controls giving you the quality you have come to expect from a North American Company.

  Hartmann Controls specializes in controlling doors, elevators, gates and lighting as well as monitoring various other devices. Our sites range in size from one reader with a handful of users to hundreds of readers with multiple clients and several thousand users.


  Hartmann Controls is conveniently located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. We are only 45 minutes North of Lester B. Pearson International Airport and the City of Toronto.

  Our facility houses our Research and Development operation as well as our Engineering, Sales and Marketing teams. We invite both local and distant dealers and installers for hands-on software and hardware training. Training includes our access control products and peripheral components such as door hardware, motion sensing, and wireless devices within direct-wired, LAN or WAN environments.

  Being only minutes away from beautiful Lake Simcoe and at the doorway to the exceptional Muskoka region to the North, the location is fantastic for Great Lakes boating and cottaging as well as an abundance of winter activities. This allows us to attract excellent team members and helps provide an energetic upbeat work atmosphere.


Driven to be the best in our market.

“Innovation, excellence in engineering and pride in workmanship" are key philosophies that we of Hartmann Controls embrace and instill in every aspect of the company. These philosophies are integrated into everything we represent. In our products, company goals, policies, and work ethic, we are passionate about the following:

  • Use expert engineering to build a superior product.
  • Provide outstanding before and after sales support.
  • Never lie to our customers; integrity is more important to us than a sale.
  • Work hard, play hard and always maintain a positive attitude.
  • Be open-minded and respectful – welcome criticism as an opportunity.
  • Make a difference!

  Hartmann Controls has been controlling building access for well over a decade. Our systems are installed in sites from one reader with a handful of users to sites that span over one hundred buildings with thousands of users. We are chosen by institutions, hospitals, military bases, factories, NASA Labs, airports, banks, fire and police stations, offices and so many other categories. While the majority of these sites use the standard Hartmann products, from time to time they also enjoy the option to request custom features such as the Niagara Casino which required a system that could support 5 million cardholders at the panel level.
