How TELSCO Protects Businesses from Costly Risks

Commercial security solutions reduce your business operation costs. Here’s how TELSCO saved businesses from spending unnecessary security expenses.

Response Time

When a break-in occurs, the costs extend beyond an insurance claim or replacing what was taken. Down-time, damages, reputation, and staff comfort can all be on the line. A fast alarm response limits the time an intruder has in your business and helps avoid ongoing costs associated with a significant breach.

Break-ins prevented

Alarm systems are designed to detect and deter break-ins. Perimeter devices such as door contacts, glass breaks, and outdoor video cameras can trigger an alarm before the intruder is fully inside. In many instances, the alarm siren, obvious strobe lights, or operator intervention will prevent the intruder from continuing with their plan.

False alarms detected

If you have had an alarm system, chances are you have experienced a false alarm. TELSCO takes an innovative approach to security, using video verification to significantly reduce false alarm phone calls. In just one year, TELSCO operators verified 6,154 alarms as false, saving customers thousands of late-night phone calls, and over $250,000 in guard costs.

Reduced on-premise deployment costs

No need to drive to the office yourself or send an employee into a potentially dangerous situation to investigate an alarm.

False insurance claims averted

Security doesn’t just save you money when it comes to break-ins. With valuable event history being recorded and instant notifications available, you are equipped to uncover and understand a wide variety of events at your business that can even extend to health and safety, or marketing.

Commercial Security Essentials

Your security needs are shaped by the unique environment in which your business operates. Together, we ensure that the proposed system will provide the protection, insight, and peace of mind you are looking for.

Commercial Alarm Systems and Services

Professional alarm monitoring is necessary to effectively protect your business (and your team) from threats such as intrusion, flood, fire, and more. With a monitored alarm system, professional operators are on hand 24/7 to ensure you get the response you need when an alarm is triggered.

Smart Card Access Control

Access Control is a must-have for business owners who want to enhance their building security, streamline operations, gain new awareness of operational activities, and eliminate the risk and expense associated with traditional keys.

24/7 Video Surveillance

Video keeps you connected to your property, and is an essential part of an effective security solution. In addition to on-demand viewing and historical footage, video provides operators with valuable information during an alarm and is critical to ensure a priority response from authorities.

ULC-Certified Fire Monitoring

ULC Fire alarm monitoring is often required by law and is a key component to completing your building project or obtaining occupancy. TELSCO offers ULC Fire Monitoring with or without a phone line, and provides monitoring from right here in Edmonton.

Commercial Security Systems FAQ

Business Security Systems

What is the best security system for business?

The best security system for your business will depend on your unique needs. Custom solutions vary depending on the size and design of your space, as well as what you are protecting. A TELSCO security specialist will work with you to understand the nuances of your business and design a system unique to your application.

How much does a security system cost for a business?

Professional security systems include a monthly service fee as well as an initial investment for the installation for the security system. The cost will vary depending on the solution.

Are business security systems tax deductible?

Security systems are tax deductible. A security system may also make you eligible for discounts from your insurance provider.

Installation and Maintenance

How long does it take to set up a new system?

The exact timeline of a new system setup will depend largely on the amount of hardware being installed. As a general rule, most commercial security installations are completed over a period of multiple days, during which technicians are mindful to minimize downtime as much as possible.

Do I need wifi to connect to the security system?

For Video Enhanced Alarm Monitoring, a high-speed internet connection (not necessarily wifi) is required. Wifi may be used in some cases for supplementary cameras or a backup communication source for alarms, but this need will be assessed and mentioned during an onsite consultation.

What are the best cameras to use for monitoring?

The best camera for each application is based on what job the camera will be doing, and what it is expected to see. Some cameras trigger alarms, whereas others are used to verify or support alarms. The location (indoor/outdoor), lighting conditions, distance to the target, and price point will all be considered when selecting the best camera.

Which is the most reliable alarm system for businesses?

The most reliable alarm systems incorporate video cameras that can be seen by operators when an alarm occurs. By accessing a live video feed, operators can instantly see what has caused the alarm – ensuring you get the best and fastest response every time.

How do you maintain a security system?

TELSCO offers comprehensive Service Assurance Plans, as well as optional annual inspections for our security solutions.

Our comprehensive service assurance plans cover the cost of any parts and labor required to maintain peak functionality and ensure your system is fully maintained without any surprise expenses.
