Barcode Automation, inc. (BAi) was founded in 1997 by Jim Pope to provide a more reliable and more affordable solution for vehicle identification at gated communities. Also, to provide a better way to do business within the access control industry.

With that premise and Jim’s background in electronics and lasers the original BAi Reader, the BA-200, was born. The BA-200 became the best way for communities to provide residents with convenient, hands-free vehicle identification. The BA-200 and subsequent models provide vehicle identification using advanced laser technology. Now in its current form as the BA-440, the system can identify vehicles with 100% accuracy while they’re traveling at speeds up to 25mph without the driver needing to stop or take their hands off the wheel. WoodhawkClub

Furthermore, Barcode Automation stands by its motto, “Doing It Better – Because We Care.” To that end we are responsive to inquiries, lead the industry in delivery time, and listen to the needs of both our installers and the HOAs contracting them. BAi believes that the vendors and business partners are as important as the product and wants their customers to know they will be there for help and support.

To that end we’re most proud of our customer service and the care we take to make our customers lives easier.

“BAi Products are second to none. Put it in the field, install it properly, and you’ll never have issues with it. Factory support is impeccable: always available, always answering my questions” – Mark Hildebrandt, Systems Integrator of AT&I Systems.

“Thanks for your help with George at Niguel Shores. He got the new reader in and working yesterday, and everyone is happy. We turned a bad situation into a great situation. They are grateful and highly impressed by the attention and customer service from BAi.” – Jim Farren, President of Protech Enterprises.


“BAi Readers simply work. After the initial install, we can forget about them and trust that they will hold up for years to come.” – James Armstrong, Assistant Community Manager at VillageWalk.
