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.

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

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

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

And I really liked the idea that if I ever had any issues with my system, the representatives are right in my own city. After reading a lot of other reviews about other security system companies, I chose to stay local and I am glad I did. To me, the price really is not that much more for the type of quality service I have received and the money gets to stay here in Edmonton. I think that by going with a company that is local, they have to work harder to try and keep your business.I had a great experience with the entire process of getting my Telsco system set up. From the initial phone call to the actual installation of the equipment, everyone has been great to work with. I would definitely recommend.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

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
