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

I've used Telsco, for home and business, for a number of years now. What a great group! Whether it's an install or a call from the monitoring station they are always ontop of things. Professional, reliable are afew of the words I would use to describe their team.We have 8 locations they have set up and monitor. We have scheduled times that our shops are to be armed. I always get a call when a shop hasn't been armed or disarmed.No issues with my home system, I operate everything from an app on my phone. I Get a notification when the door opens/closes and can lock the door from anywhere when my kids forget too :)I can confidently recommend the Telsco team To anyone knowing they will get treated right!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
Customer service was polite but not really helpful.

If their representative needs to call back or if they need to follow-up with further information they do return your calls. Able to schedule on-site service and will work with us to arrange times suitable (due to availability) within an acceptable time-frame.Service technicians are very knowledgeable and are able to answer all questions. Able to identify what requires attention and what alternatives could be available.Have accidentally tripped the alarm myself and I receive a call from Telsco within 30 seconds reporting a possible breach. Monitoring personnel are very professional and understanding.We continually consider enhancements to the security features of our home and will continue to consult with Telsco for all such requirements.We would recommend Telsco to any person considering the installation of a monitored security system.read less

I have never had a home security system until I originally signed up with Telsco. I switched because a friend is a dealer/rep with another company and they had a very good promotion to get a wireless system on a 2year contract. So I made the switch :::::::::::: we’ll let me tell ya the grass is NOT greener on the other side. I have had continuous system errors and nothing but trouble with this new system. I am only6 months in to the 2 year contract but am already counting down the days to return my security needs to Telsco. There’s something to be said about a company who is locally based and the ability to call in and speak with someone immediately I wish I was never convinced to leave Telsco..........as it’s the biggest mistake I’ve made when it comes to home security in 10 years!! With Telsco I never had issues and IF I did or IF I needed any service work; additions; changes. It was prompt; no waits or lengthy holds on the phone and service calls were set up quickly. Currently with new security provider calls times are an hour wait ; responses to repair are over a week to two week waits to just get a response with another week wait for appointment. I took Telsco for granted and am now paying the price; I even had my front door attempted kicked-in ironically while my new-current system (which is NOT through Telsco) while it was down for a week and I was waiting for a service call to come. Telsco was ALWAYS their for me and my family- I have already been let down by this current provider but am obligated for 18 more months. TELSCO I WILL BE BACK-IM SORRY I LEFT!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
