About us

The Cactus Group of Companies

Our group of companies was started by our founder Pete Falkenberg in November of 1993 with the inception of Cactus Communications. The group quickly grew with the addition of Cactus AVU (previously Cactus Sights & Sounds), Aztek Security and finally Appliances Unlimited.

Read about all of our separate company offerings below.

Cactus Communications is an authorized TELUS dealer, Koodo dealer and an authorized Motorola Two-Way Radio dealer. We specialize in two-way radios, wireless networking, cellular booster systems, long range antenna systems, GPS fleet management, vehicle security and remote start systems.

The quality in our service and our expertise is what brings us over the top. With two large installations bays and mobile service vehicles, our service department is capable of installing/servicing your communication equipment when you need it and where you need it.

You can rely on us to help you make decisions based on your individual and business communication needs including devices, accessories and services required.

Cactus Audio Video Unlimited (formerly Cactus Sights and Sounds; formerly Kapps TV) joined the AVU group in July of 2006 to bring their customers a more rounded product range, extremely competitive pricing and to bring a greater focus to home theatre and home automation field.

Cactus Audio Video Unlimited is an authorized Sony, Pansasonic, JVC, Sonos, Alpine, Paradigm, Polk Audio, Shaw Direct, Denon, Anthem,  and Control4 dealer. We specialize in home audio/ video, custom home theatre, home automation, car audio,  and satellite installation.

Our experienced , knowledgeable and friendly sales staff are able and willing to set you up with the products that you not only desire but will best suit your needs. By standing by the products that we offer, we will install, setup and show you how to use your product.

Also, unlike many of our competitors we are able to help when you need it most. If you have any issues with the products that we sell you, we are able to take care of them for you instead of sending you off to a third party help line or service center.

Aztek Security Co. is the only locally owned and operated security company in Brooks Alberta. We specialize in security monitoring systems, state of the art surveillance systems, access control systems and medical alert systems.

Aztek Security is also a ULC certified fire alarm monitoring installation team. A must have for all of our new building codes and safety regulations.

With the addition of home automation and multi-room sound to the product line-up of Cactus Audio Video Unlimited, it was up to Aztek Security Co. to become the experts in both areas of installation and programming. To date, we have successfully sold and installed fully automated audio/video systems in the range of $900 to $85,000.

Being a smaller locally owned company, allows us to offer the customer the best personal customer service. As we wish to keep our credibility, we strive to serve our community best.

Our mobile workforce gives us the flexibility to serve our customers where they need us. Dependant on our customers needs, we have been able to travel as far as Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Gleichen, Two Hills, Hanna, Medicine Hat, Pincher Creek, Vulcan and even Kelowna.

With the best equipment, we strive to provide our customers with the best quality service. We are not tied to any certain brands and are able to provide the product that will work best for our customer.

Look to Aztek Security Co. for all of your security needs.

With the addition of Appliances Unlimited in November 2010 to the Cactus Group of Cpmpanies we were able to round out our offerings to customers looking to build new homes or make renovations to their existing ones. Being a new player in the appliances market in our area, we wanted to be different. We would have a smaller show room but all of our appliances would be connected and ready to show our customers how they will look, feel and operate in their homes.
