With a more than 70-year history, Telecontrol has become a prominent leader in private security in Italy.
Telecontrol was founded in 1947 by the resourcefulness and determination of one man, cav. Rocco Campanale. Only two years after the end of the war, he acquired a Vigilance Institute from the competent authority in Chieri, and thus, Vigilanza of Rivoli was born.
The company grew in the number of clients and employees, quickly becoming a recognized entity in the province of Turin. In the mid-1970s, with the growth of industrialization and crime, Vigilanza di Rivoli began its first technological evolution that coincided with the entrance of Mr. Paolo Brendolan as the second generation into the company. At that time, the company would be the first Vigilance institute to make extensive use of cutting-edge technologies from the United Kingdom through the first anti-theft systems connected to the Operations Center. The company name change from Istituto di Vigilanza di Rivoli to Telecontrol Vigilanza dates back to these years.
These were the years of growth and specialization: Telecontrol Impianti was established, dedicated to the installation and maintenance of security systems, and Telecontrol Servizi, a concierge and Reception company.
With the arrival of the third generation, the company continues to grow by expanding its territorial presence: the acquisition of Argus sud-ovest srl. would bring the company to work in the province of Cuneo, while that of Ambrosiana Vigilanza srl. in the province of Milan. The establishment of the company Sicursì srl. will allow the Telecontrol Group to operate as a general contractor nationwide.
Telecontrol took over TechCo Italia, a system integrator of security technology systems for banks and multinational corporations. The SicurezzaH24 brand was established and geared toward the security of private homes and stores. The decision made in 2020 was to create a single company that incorporated all services and represented a single interlocutor for customers in the market: TELECONTROL. The corporate reorganization involved a new organizational structure centered on the Operations Center: the ambition remains to be the No. 1 MONITORING CENTER IN ITALY.
