For smart home beginners, smart lighting can be a great way to dip your toe into the world of home automation. With Z-wave lightbulbs and easy to install plug-in modules, you can make your home smarter in just a few minutes. With features that increase both your security and convenience, we think that this is a great way to take advantage of smart home technology.
If you want to explore the addition of more smart devices down the road, these lighting and appliance modules will work seamlessly as part of a larger solution.
A few of our favorite features:
Never enter a dark home again with smart home rules that turn on the lights when you unlock the door or disarm your security system.
Set up lighting schedules to make it appear as though you as home when you’re not. There are multiple schedule options based on time of day or sunrise/sunset that include randomization for increased authenticity.
Stuck late at the office? A dark house can be a target for crime. Use your phone to instantly turn on a light from wherever you are.
Ever worry that you left your hair straightener, or Scentsy plugged in? With a smart appliance module, you can check on it, and turn it off from anywhere.
You can get as creative as you want with versatile appliance modules. We have seen people use it to feed their pets, make their coffee and turn off their TV.

Lighting & Appliance FAQs
What is a smart light switch?
A smart light switch can be controlled remotely using your smart phone or tablet, and is often one of many components in a home automation solution. Smart switches require installation by an electrician, but flexible devices such as smart bulbs and appliance modules can make your lights or small appliances smart in a matter of minutes.

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 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

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

We were able to get the initial appointment promptly and Patrick arrived on time. Within a few minutes he had the problem solved and was on his way. He took the time to explain the situation, so that we knew exactly what was going on. We have had a Telsco Security System for years and highly recommend them - their service has always been phenomenal!read less

A week ago I upgraded the system to reflect the new technology. The technician Telsco sent was 'Gaston.' He was pleasant to deal with, knew his stuff, and did a wonderful job cleaning up his workspace when the install was done. I particularly appreciated Gaston's patience with me (he had to teach an old dog new tricks) when explaining and installing the web based program on my phone. Gaston was 110% in my books.read less
