Z-Wave is a wireless communications protocol designed for Home Automation. A Z-Wave network starts with a central Z-Wave controller and is customized with devices selected by you. The technology uses local, low power RF frequencies to build an intelligent mesh network between devices. Your Z-Wave network is strengthened by expansion and will not interfere with on-site Wi-Fi networks.
Easy to Incorporate
Z-Wave is considered an affordable Home Automation solution, as the devices do not require special wiring or complicated programming. An existing network can be expanded upon quickly and easily.
Incorporating Z-Wave devices into your home security system allows you to control these devices remotely on demand, or create automated rules and triggers.
What Devices can utilize Z-Wave?
Many home electronics are available in Z-Wave enabled models, some of the most popular being light switches, thermostats, blinds, and locks.
Avoid fumbling in the dark by programming lights to turn on when you disarm your security system.
Save energy by setting your thermostat to cool when you leave home and secure your alarm system.
Add smart locks that allow you to lock or unlock your door from anywhere in the world.
Use Existing Devices
There are accessory modules that allow for simple retrofits in virtually any device that uses electricity.
Z-Wave provides exciting new possibilities for homeowners looking for an entry-level, or a whole Z-Wave home solution. Contact a TELSCO Security Consultant, right here in Edmonton, to find out more about integrating Z-Wave into your home.

We wanted to work with a company that was reputable, current with today’s technological advances and large enough to accommodate our needs.Partnering with Mike Gagne and the team at Telsco Security provided solutions and products that definitely matched our requirements. The system Telsco installed at St. Albert Honda is quite robust, featuring state of the art equipment. Key fob access systems, Programmable Maglock door systems, Next generation low light cameras and the Symphony Enterprises video management software.The Telsco security solution provides the team at St. Albert Honda peace of mind.

Telsco is a most customer friendly company providing top-notch security products in a very competitive fashion. They also have a great support staff in people such as Nathan and an installer like Dibes who just completed setting up a doorbell camera. Such an installation should have been a no-brainer but one of my doorbells created issues: my house’s bad. Dibes displayed amazing patience and resourcefulness in making everything work perfectly. I am most thankful and cannot say enough for such service. I plan to continue to use their security services as long as I need them. Thank you.read less

Travis Sharkey (Sales) did an excellent job providing a security plan for my home and provided friendly professional customer service and follow up. Kam (Installation) also did an excellent job and took all the time needed to explain and answer all my questions during installation and set up. Customer service at Telsco has been great and the best part is when you call for information or help you get to talk to someone in person without delay. I will recommend Telsco to family and friends.read less

The tech -Gordon - was great. He called when to let me know he was on his way, he was on time and most importantly, he identified the problem right away and didn't leave until everything was fixed and he was sure it was working properly. He also gave me some great advice on setting up the rules for the camera online to improve the recording we were getting. If you're looking for an alarm company, look no further than Telsco.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

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

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

They were very professional from the free quote, setting up a timely appointment and switching from my older security system. They handled the switch over very well and had me up and running with no issues. I like the time they spent going over the system, features and the online/app system. I really like that they are local and you can speak to a fellow Albertan. After the install they keep in touch with emails to make sure system is running and responded to questions promptly. Highly recommend them!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

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
