Communications technology company TELUS and security tech company Genetec Inc. are joining forces to simplify cloud video surveillance for small and medium-sized businesses in Canada. The collaboration bundles TELUS security cameras with Genetec’s Stratocast cloud subscription-based video monitoring solution, enabling users to monitor their video from multiple locations through cloud-connected cameras. By recording and storing video straight to the cloud and eliminating the need for on-site servers, business owners can keep an eye on their locations using the Stratocast web portal or mobile application on their phones, computers, or tablets.

“TELUS has a long history of delivering innovative security technologies to our residential and business customers, and we are proud to partner with Genetec,” said Jason Macdonnell, president, smart security and automation at TELUS. “Powered by our world-leading networks, TELUS’ security solutions provide integrated, flexible systems to make our customers feel safe, connected, and in control. This collaboration highlights both companies’ focus on using technology to meet the security needs of businesses and improve the day-to-day lives of users.”

Stratocast is now available to customers across Canada and starts at $20 per month with the purchase of a camera. With TELUS’ PureFibre network, businesses can access upload and download speeds, which provides significant benefits for applications like video surveillance and cloud-based security.

“The cloud offers new ways for small and medium-sized businesses to secure their facilities, while effectively leveraging their operating budgets. We are pleased to be collaborating with TELUS to bring video surveillance as a service to this community,” said Marc-André Bergeron, director of sales, Genetec Inc. “Small and medium-sized businesses are utilizing cloud infrastructure and enjoying cost-savings across many parts of their operations — from POS systems to security. Genetec Stratocast makes it simple for business owners to effectively and affordably protect their operations.”
