Home Security System

I found the whole experience seamless. Right from when I got contacted by the Sales Rep to when the job was completed by the Technician at our residence. Good job!

Telsco Security

We had Gordon come to our home for a warranty follow up call on one of our devices. I was blown away by the amount of time he took to sit and teach me the system. To show me that the system is capable of so much more than one realizes. He took time to fix additional issues with the system that weren’t even on the service call out. I can see why Gordon is a senior tech with Telsco, he’s very knowledgeable, understanding and patient. Telsco should be proud they have someone like Gordon working for them. If you’re thinking of investing in a security system I highly recommend Telsco and make sure you request Gordon as your installer, the man is amazing and the company is great!

Home Security

In December 2017, we started looking for another alarm system provider. (We were experiencing continual lack of customer service from our previous provider and felt we were treating like a "number" as opposed to a valued customer of 25+ years).

One of the companies we contacted was Telsco. Their representative, Kris Stangeland, came to our home to discuss options. Kris is highly knowledgeable and put together a system that perfectly fits our needs.

The two installers, Oleg and Amambeer were professional, cleaned up as they went and after the work was completed, explained how the system worked as well as walked us through the online applications.

I have had to contact Telsco a couple of times since install, just for questions, and response times have been same day. (Our previous provider, in a couple of cases, took months to respond to simple inquiries.

We have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Kris, Oleg, Amambeer and Telsco!

New Security System

We have had a security system with a different company for 17 years. we decided to change because we just felt like a customer from afar. We decided to update, and connected with Telsco, a local company. The entire process, from the first phone call, to the salesperson, to the technician, with all the scheduling in between was personable, knowledgeable, efficient and totally what I would expect as a customer.

Home Security

We have been satisfied Telsco customers for over 16 years. Recently we had our system upgraded and were pleasantly surprised at the low cost of having this done. More so we were pleased with the helpful and professional way Telsco staff dealt with our request all the way from the sales rep to the scheduler and technician that made it happen. Extra credit to the technician for answering my many questions. We look forward to many more years of excellent service from Telsco.

Telsco is an extremely reliable and economical service based on responsiveness, no alarm is minor to them, they call immediately to see if we are OK and the quality of their service persons if first class. We feel very safe because of that.

TELSCO Home Security

As the City of Edmonton continues to see an increase in the amount of neighborhood crime, and a break an enter in our own community a few doors away, we decide to investigate a home security system. As part of our research, we interviewed our neighbors that had security systems. Interesting no one was using TELSCO and yet they had some of the highest reviews online. We decided to contact TELSCO. Our salesperson was one of the most honest and sincere chaps we have dealt with in sometime. He made sure we had all of the information we needed offered referrals and helped us to understand that there is no need for long term agreements and more. We went ahead with the system and the technicians that came to our home were on time, efficient and very respectful of our home. I spent the day with these two fellows who made sure I had a complete understanding of the equipment being installed. The purpose for the system design and other options if I ever chose to expand our system. I am 57 years old, an experienced business professional and I can spot a fake when I see it. We could instantly see that TELSCO is looking for repeat business and they are investing in their clients to ensure their reputation proceeds them. Within a day of our install we referred our neighbor to TELSCO and we have told a number of people about the excellent service we received and how easy our system is to use. We mad eth right decision going with TELSCO. We have let TELSCO know we are more than happy to be a reference for them and to post a review. I hope you don't have to do the research we did to get your TELSCO system put in. Hopefully you can take my word for it. These folks are awesome to deal with. Dean (Edmonton)
