UL and KeepYourIP working together for a better tomorrow within the alarm industry
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
KYI, Inc. out of Irvine, California, has announced their cooperation with global standards provider, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) in an attempt to expand the scope of several of their standards and categories wherein the Keep Your IP line of IP forwarding services can become certified.
At present, UL’s Certification of Alarm Services is specific to protected properties and has some limits. These limits include the aspects of the telecommunications infrastructure within the service. UL Alarm Service Certificates currently specify that their Certificates do not apply to the communications channel between the protected property and any facility that monitors signals from the protected property.
Keep Your IP’s service, and its supporting hardware, lie in the communications channel between protected property and the monitoring facility which presently puts it outside the scope of UL’s Certification.
Davin Roos, President of KYI, Inc. says, “We are very excited to assist UL in establishing a category that will address new technological advancements on communications within the alarm industry”
“Today’s technology makes it possible for innovators to deliver an amazing array of new and beneficial services. Helping organizations bring those services into the market in a way that preserves the integrity of the public’s security is a big part of UL’s mission,” stated Steve Schmit, Engineering Manager at UL LLC out of Northbrook, IL. “We look forward to working with Keep Your IP and the entire industry on Certification solutions that bring trust and confidence to all stakeholders.”
UL has confirmed that an alarm company’s use of the Keep Your IP service would not impact their Listing or Certification status in any way.
To that end, UL has communicated their desire to better accommodate the rapidly changing communications infrastructure and hope to have an offering that fits the Keep Your IP product in the not too distant future, possibly as early as the first quarter of 2013.
UL is a global independent safety science company offering expertise across five key strategic businesses: Product Safety, Environment, Life & Health, Verification Services and Knowledge Services. Their breadth, established objectivity and proven history mean they are a symbol of trust and enable them to help provide peace of mind to all.
