Have you ever found yourself halfway to work wondering if you closed the garage overhead door? Worse yet, have you ever arrived home at the end of the day to find that your overhead door has been opened the whole time you were away?
Incorporating a smart garage door as part of your security solution can help.
Open & Close your door from anywhere
With TELSCO Connect, you can easily check on your garage overhead door to see if it is opened or closed. Using your smartphone or computer, you can also go ahead and open or close the door with the touch of a button. No more driving back home to close the door, or worrying all day that it has been left open.
Being able to open the garage door using your phone is also convenient for receiving packages or granting access to a visitor without giving away a code.
Notifications & Alerts
On a busy morning, the status of your garage overhead door may be the last thing on your mind. Not to worry. With TELSCO Connect, you can set up automatic notifications and alerts that will let you know if the door has been left open unexpectedly. Notifications of an open door can be triggered if the door has been opened too long or even by recognizing that everyone has left home, using Geo-Services location-based technology.

How to make a garage door smart?
Garage overhead doors are a common addition to a smart home security solution. Smart garage door modules work with a variety of existing garage door motors, and allow for easy integration using wireless communication. A security expert will be able to provide you with options and recommendations based on the make and model of your current garage overhead door. Once equipped, a smart garage door can be opened and closed from anywhere in the world using your smart phone, and can even alert you when it has been left open in error.

Called on a Friday afternoon and sale person said it was getting late in the day and that they would get back to us on Monday ... by Wednesday after no response, I called and left a reminder message with this individual ... and now it's Friday a week later and still no response . Guess this may speak to the kind of response you may get from this company if you ever needed to actually call for assistance. I am now dialing other security companies for assistance .>> Update - Telsco followed up and apologized for the communication issue. They stepped up & came thru with some very competitive pricing to get us up and running, as well as assisted with the add-on cost for a garage door opener. Updated our panel and smoke detector, no charge.Sales rep Brandon was quite professional and informative, no pressure selling . They arranged for an after hours install to get us going right away. Installer ' Cam ' was again, professional and very knowledgeable, walking us thru the app set up and system use .Wish I could have had this experience from the get go, but am glad we decided to use Telsco . Would recommend them .read less

They had the information on the system and new what pad I needed for replacement, they even advised me of the need to replace the smoke alarms.They set up a service call and notified me a half hour before their arrival.

We had received multiple quotes from different companies. What struck me about Mike was his knowledge of the security field, the fact that he had been a part of every level of their business and chose to stick with Telsco for over 20 years. Not only did Mike's quote provide information and piece of mind, but was much lower cost than the other companies. Mike took the time to come to our office and walk the grounds with us. He provided a quote that was comprehensive but not bloated. When we had a slight issue with the installation, Mike was quick to respond and corrected everything immediately. I was floored with the amazing service. I recommend Mike to our friends, family and clients and you should do the same. Thanks to Mike and his team at Telsco.read less

This was the case earlier in the year and at their recommendation had a new system and keypad installed to insure continued coverage and monitoring. Unfortunately, after the upgrade there was an unexpected issue that while not jeopardizing the system itself did make for a persisting annoyance. Although it took a couple of attempts I can't speak highly enough of TELSCO's commitment to look after their customers and in particular Kristin. She was always very prompt to reply, took our concerns seriously and treated us with the utmost respect & consideration for our time.I can recommend TELSCO with absolutely no hesitation.read less

I had a good impression so I arranged to meet Craig. He was very friendly and likeable as well as very professional and very knowledgeable. So I decided to go with TELSCO. Craig coordinated everything and Kam installed it like a breeze professionally and very detailed. As well, Kam was very likeable and easy to talk to. Answered all my questions satisfactorily. Overall, it was awesome. Called Tech Support the day after and I was very satisfied. Hats off to you both and TELSCO for having such amazing people. Highly recommended.read less

They asked us if they should send a car around. I told them know, as we have neighbors that monitor our home when we are away. I called the neighbors and they responded noting it was a false alarm. When we got home, we called Telsco to see why this would happen. They said there could be many causes, but advised us that if we wished they could send a technician out to check out all the sensors to ensure they were working properly. We accepted this offer, thinking there would be a fee for this. A very polite technician came over and checked every sensor in the home to ensure it was functioning properly. They all were, and said it was an anomaly that this occurred. He also stated that if it happened again, they would come out and possibly replace the motion sensor. I really thought we were going to pay a service charge for this, as friends have told us that other Security Systems charge for service calls like this. We were informed that there was no charge. We are really happy with Telsco and would recommend them to anyone!read less

Any contact I have is with a real person. I have had the odd alarm go and when I get a call it is from someone in Edmonton who is thoughtful, concerned and responsive. I have a vacation property out of Edmonton and had to use a different company. With that service I deal with recordings and automated messages and wait on hold to be connected with a person. TELSCO is head and shoulders better than that competitor which was the best option I had available.read less

The Telsco technician was very friendly, thorough, and obviously great at his job. He was also super helpful in showing us how to use the app and he updated our doorbell system, which had not been working. I accidentally tripped the alarm one day and Telsco was very prompt in contacting me to ensure everything was alright. They were fast to contact and went through verification checks. Overall, I am extremely impressed; the technician was great and Telsco has been a very great and reliable security company.read less

And I really liked the idea that if I ever had any issues with my system, the representatives are right in my own city. After reading a lot of other reviews about other security system companies, I chose to stay local and I am glad I did. To me, the price really is not that much more for the type of quality service I have received and the money gets to stay here in Edmonton. I think that by going with a company that is local, they have to work harder to try and keep your business.I had a great experience with the entire process of getting my Telsco system set up. From the initial phone call to the actual installation of the equipment, everyone has been great to work with. I would definitely recommend.read less
