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.

Our sales rep Kimble helped fit us in on our tight timeline. Our technician Chris was cheerful, hardworking, went above and beyond and explained things in a simple and concise manner. He also cleaned up before leaving and ensured there was no mess left behind, he took the time to clean his boots before entering the office each time which is a rarity in the install/construction world! The system works well, is intuitive and it was a great overall customer experience. 5 enthusiastic stars.read less

They are a local company. Customer service is always excellent and the price is affordable. Plus when your alarm goes off, it's an actual human being from Edmonton who calls to check in on you.

Our system was outdated so we needed an upgrade to wireless. Gene put together a quote that was acceptable to us and our upgrade was done by Les. We were told our install may take most of the day but Les was done in a couple hours. We threw him a couple curve balls which he hit out of the park. He made sure we knew everything about the new system and how to use the app. There is a reason Telsco has been in business for 50 years and why we have been customers so long. We are proud to support this Edmonton business. We know we our home is safe in their hands.read less

I was blown away by the amount of time he took to sit and teach me the system. To show me that the system is capable of so much more than one realizes. He took time to fix additional issues with the system that weren’t even on the service call out. I can see why Gordon is a senior tech with Telsco, he’s very knowledgeable, understanding and patient. Telsco should be proud they have someone like Gordon working for them. If you’re thinking of investing in a security system I highly recommend Telsco and make sure you request Gordon as your installer, the man is amazing and the company is great!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

We only had it monitored for the last 6 years and are very satisfied with the service. Telsco always calls promptly when we set the alarm off by accident and are pleasant on the phone. We upgraded our system a few years ago and the technician -Patrick - was really personable, knowledgable and extremely efficient. We would highly recommend Telsco to anyone looking for a home security system.read less

I have been with Telsco for about 5 years now. By far the best alarm company. The fact that everything is local and call center isnt in Kentucky or something is great. They know the city, know local law enforcement making it a very smooth service. We have had ZERO false alarms causing false dispatches. They are insanely quick to call your phone if the alarm is set off by accident by say the dog, or a loved that didnt get to the panel fast enough. I now have cameras outside and at the entrances as well so that if there is a break in they can see and can call police immediately.They offer cutting edge tech and the best camera tech ive seen in comparison to the other "door to door" companies. Telscos service is top notch. The 1 or two issues I have had have been resolved in VERY short periods and the installation of my cameras and equipment is flawless. I would strongly recommend you choose Telsco over all other systems. You will not regret it. There is a reason the rating is so high. They make you feel like you are their only client. It is incredible. Thanks for reading.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. The pad and smoke alarms were replaced by a great service tech, he was very careful wearing a mask for Covid.I have recommended Telsco based on my experience with them.The employees are outstanding for great personal service.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

You will find that Telsco is on the pricier end for initial set up but worth its weight in gold. Great experience from getting a quote (the guy came on a Sunday to accommodate our schedules!) all the way through to call centre check up calls and install/service visits - they live for your service protection plan like its their home. They are also one of few companies that will work with existing systems - so keep this in mind. My only regret is wasting so much time looking at other companies - we are very lucky to have Telsco in #yeg.read less
