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.

Our system was outdated so we needed an upgrade to wireless.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

Given its age we decided to upgrade it, as well as having a dog that sets it off. Newer motion detectors are better at not triggering for animals.Every person we interacted with was professional, knowledgeable, willing to assist and above all pleasant !The salesperson explained why we should upgrade the system, made suggestions and worked with me so I got exactly what I wanted.The technician called prior to arriving, was wearing a mask, and went about installing the system quickly and professionally. He the. Took the time to explain how the system and new keyboard worked, not rushing, and willing to answer questions.Had we not had good experience over our 11 years with Telsco we would not have stayed with them.I’d highly recommend them !read less

Today we had a thermostat added to our monitoring system by an installer named Chris (cant recall last name) and he was the most polite and friendly individual I have met in a long time! I highly recommend TELSCO for all your home monitoring needs.read less

The crook broke 2 doors, pulled all the drawers and took easy to carry items - cash, jewellery, car keys, etc. The insurance company changed the doors and locks but our sense of security was gone. It was time to secure the house. My niece in Calgary searched online and found Telsco. I looked up Telsco in Edmonton Better Business Bureau. It has the best review. I also saw quite a few Telsco signs in the neighbourhood - yes, the bad gusy are here, and yes, there are more Telsco signs here than other companies'.So I called for a free consultation session. Long story short, all the Telsco employees that I have encountered (from sales, online chat, installation technician, service department to the Business Analyst I emailed with regarding billing) are friendly and helpful. No one tried to hard sell anything to us (stories I read online re other companies). I asked lots of questions and they were all answered very professionally. We eventually opted for a deterrence system - no surveillance cameras. The price was reasonable. A friend of mine went with another company around the same time. My cost was cheaper and I got more value for what I paid. There is no long term contract - just one year then it's month to month. My friend had to sign a 5 year contract. Our system was finally installed in early October - the only bad thing really because we had to wait for about 2 weeks as the installation team was busy. The sesnors were placed at such locatinos that they would provide a double hit to qualify for alerting the police in case there's a breakin. The online interface is very useful in setting up users/keyholders and system alerts. We have set up text/email notifications so we know exactly what is going on with the system being armed/disarmed or doors/windows being left open. It is also easy to arm/disarm the system using the app - from the car or lying in bed! I still have to overcome the anxiety of leaving my house, but at least I know Telsco is looking out for me. I am very happy that there's a local security company that I can trust - Telsco!read less

During informative, no pressure consultations, we were presented various options to make the best decision, and are now enjoying the new features and peace of mind. In addition, their knowledge of the existing system (and new support arrangements), made the decision even easier.read less

We set off our alarm and promptly receive a call from Telsco to check on us and our system. Recently, the internet was down. Shaw took one week to respond with sending someone out, while Telsco was notified and they scheduled Mohammed for approximately an hour after being reconnected to the internet. Awesome job!! Also, to note, having the same couple of Telsco representatives speaks loudly for the company. Since our installation of the security system, we any problems being dealt with has been with the same service reps --- so Telsco keeps their people which says volumes regarding the company itself!! Would recommend Telsco to anyone and everyone!!read less

From the time Vickie came to walk through my house to give me a quote, I knew I was in good hands. Telsco accommodated me to install my security system on a weekend; as my work schedule did not allow it during the week. Nyan installed my system and explained everything in detail about how it works. Everyone has been so kind to me and I've slept better the last week knowing I have a security system. Thanks everyone!read less
