Apartment buildings have unique security needs, and can require the integration of several thoughtfully designed solutions to ensure the apartment building security system is reliable, effective and easy to manage. Whether you are building, managing or living in a condominium building, Telsco can help with your security needs.
Fire Panel Monitoring
In order to attain occupancy for a newly constructed apartment building, the condominium will be required to pass a fire inspection, and a monitoring of the fire panel will likely be included as part of this inspection. Telsco provides ULC listed fire monitoring from our Edmonton monitoring centre, and specializes in the installation of ULC Fire Communicator Panels. With the introduction of Active Cellular monitoring, we can provide ULC systems without a dedicated landline, making the installation process more flexible than ever.
Door Access Control Systems
Most condominium or apartment buildings use a keyfob or keycard system to allow tenants to easily access the building any time. Door access control is often installed on main exterior doors as well as parkade doors and interior doors for common areas such as exercise or pool facilities. These door access control systems are easy to use, and increase security by eliminating lost, stolen or duplicated keys. With remote access options, management is easy, instant and does not require a special visit to the site. An access system should be considered early in the building process to allow for the most cost effective installation and flexibility with locations.
Apartment Building Video Surveillance
A video surveillance system can enhance apartment building security by providing real time footage of the building, and can also be extremely valuable for retrieving recorded footage of incidents that occur on site. With hundreds of options for apartment building video surveillance, an expert from Telsco will assess your site and your needs to propose a solution that will deliver the most value, now and in the future. Wiring considerations for a video surveillance system should be made early in your building process to allows for the most cost effective installation and flexibility with locations.

All smart security systems can be controlled using an app, and set up to deliver alerts and notifications based on the activity of the system. Automation can be added to these systems for the integration of locks, lights or other small appliances.
