Springfield, MO (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Although most consumers don't know what a central station monitoring company does, almost everyone who subscribes to a local alarm monitoring program is indirectly doing business with one. Most local alarm companies don't have the resources to constantly monitor the alarms so they purchase wholesale alarm monitoring from a central station. The central station must meet very stringent requirements in order to provide these services including onsite backup power generation capabilities. UL, the global independent safety science company, offers certificates to alarm companies and central monitoring stations that meet or exceed their listing criteria.
Alarm Control Center (a subsidiary of Atlas Security Service, Inc.) is pleased to announce that the company continues to be listed with UL in the categories of:
Central Station Fire Alarm (UUFX)
Central Station Burglar Alarm (CPVX)
Monitoring Stations National Industrial Security Systems (CRZM)
Certification of alarm service provides a confidence connection between users, owners, service providers and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs). For more than 90 years, UL has worked with the alarm industry, user groups and AHJs to invent today's model for alarm service Certification. UL Certification of alarm services delivers the highest level of confidence available in today's market.
A "Listed Central Station" is an alarm monitoring facility that has demonstrated the ability to provide Standards-complying service. For monitoring stations, UL requirements cover building structure, receiving and monitoring equipment, and staffing issues in addition to installation and ongoing service. To be able to provide Standards-complying service, the building, equipment and staffing requirements have to be met at all times.
