Partnering with Calgary-based boutique urban developer Arlington Street Investments, Telus is transforming The Fifth, a landmark site on Calgary's 17th Avenue, into a smart building by using its technology to simplify day-to-day operations and more.

Telus (NYSE: TU) on Sept. 23 announced it is expanding its smart buildings footprint in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, "advancing its commitment to leverage the power of technology to create sustainable, healthy, and connected spaces to live, work, and play," as stated by the firm.

In partnering with Calgary-based boutique urban developer and award-winning investment company Arlington Street Investments, Telus says it is transforming The Fifth, a landmark site on Calgary's 17th Avenue, into a smart building by using its technology to simplify day-to-day operations, reduce costs, and elevate the resident experience.

The firm says residents at The Fifth will receive "a custom smart home experience through the easy-to-use Telus Smart Building app, giving them the ability to remotely lock and unlock doors, adjust thermostats, detect water leaks, and access a smart intercom system that issues temporary codes for visitors or guests."

As stated by the firm:

For building operators, this means peace of mind with the latest in security technology, 24-hour monitoring, and tools to increase building efficiency, while reducing their carbon footprint and operating expenses. With Telus Smart Building, residents and building operators can rest assured that the property is safe, sustainable, and connected.

“Telus has a long history of delivering innovative technologies to both consumers and businesses, and we are proud to offer building automation, security, entertainment, and connectivity solutions to help protect what matters most while creating an enhanced lifestyle for residents and guests,” said Jason Macdonnell, President, Smart Security and Automation, at Telus. “Powered by our world-leading networks and entirely controlled from a smartphone app, Telus’ smart building solutions provide integrated, flexible systems to make our customers feel safe, empowered, and in control.”
