Our real-world experience and expertise do not stop us from continuing to explore possibilities others have not considered. We value curiosity, openness to new challenges, and never becoming complacent.
We are a team of passionate people who love collaborative problem-solving and the open exchange of ideas. We nurture trusting relationships with our partners and customers. Together, we act to anticipate and address future challenges.
We rely on each other, just as our customers and partners rely on us. We always strive to turn our visions into solutions that perform in the real world, refusing to compromise our high standards of quality and reliability.
CEDES has been developing innovative solutions since 1986 for safety and information systems, automation, monitoring, industrial computers and controls. Beginning life as a two-person start-up in a kitchen, CEDES now employs around 400 people worldwide as a global leader in optical sensors utilizing active infrared technology and image processing.
From those humble beginnings, it took the company less than a decade to become a global leader in elevator sensor technology. We developed the first commercial light curtain in 1991, which has become the industry standard. Then our slot-type light barriers revolutionized elevator positioning and our latest hoistway communications solutions are doing the same for the 21st century.
We have taken that same pioneering spirit and expanded into the entrance automation markets to provide ultra-reliable comfort and safety sensor solutions for pedestrian, industrial and residential doors as well as for transportation & people-flow, warehouse management and automated windows.
