About Us

Sylvan Security — a division of Sylvan Special Systems, Inc. — was started in response to the increasing demand from our customers for a local company to provide a high quality security product. Sylvan Security’s personnel offer decades of professional security and life safety experience. We are located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and operate primarily in the Southwest region of the state; however, we also provide service across the entire state of Louisiana.

Sylvan Special Systems, Inc. originally started as Sylvan Sound, which was founded in 1946 by Mr. Sylvan Phenice. At the time, Sylvan Sound provided hand-built radios and sound systems for the general public and commercial entities. Some of these original intercoms and radios can still be found operational.

Sylvan has searched the world to bring you the best products and services available.

Today Sylvan Special Systems, Inc. specializes in custom security and fire alarm systems, door access control, school intercoms, audio, video, CCTV systems solutions, and much more.

Our goal is to provide consultation, design, and installation of systems that meet your needs. As with all successful companies, the customer is the number one asset. Our staff is committed to the satisfaction of our customers. We deliver performance and value that is second to none! We take the time to learn our clients’ needs so that we can truly understand their concerns and requirements.
