Wholesale Alarm Monitoring Firm Passes UL Inspection

Springfield, Missouri (September 27, 2013) – Alarm Control Center has just passed the yearly inspection conducted by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global leader in safety science. By passing the inspection process at the end of July, the company may continue acting as a certified central station that offers wholesale alarm monitoring to businesses.

Widely recognized by the general public for their innovative safety solutions and standards, UL evaluates more than 19,000 kinds of products, components, and systems every year. The UL group of companies includes 68 laboratory testing and certification facilities in 102 countries. One of the organization’s standards is the Central Station Listing Program that caters to alarm monitoring companies.

Through the Central Station Listing Program, companies can display the UL certification mark for Central Station Burglar Alarm (CPVX), Central Station Fire Alarm – Full Service (UUFX), and Central Station – Monitoring Only (UUFX) if they pass any of its qualifications. To begin the certification process, companies must contact a certificate services representative in their areas and give them an overview of their facilities.

Additionally, companies that aspire for certification might have to undergo a building plan review. In this situation, UL performs a formal review and creates a report on their findings for a fee. The report will tell applicants whether or not their facilities will comply with UL 827, the Standard for Safety of Central Station Alarm Service.

Even if such companies pass the UL certification process, they must undergo inspections every six months to maintain their listings. Because a company like Alarm Control Center passed their inspection, they may retain the UL certification of Central Station Fire Alarm – Full Service (UUFX).

This should assure any of their current and prospective clients that Alarm Control Center meets certain functional and structural requirements. These include having documented contingency plans for emergency situations, full online UPS backup, monthly training of all their operators, and a standby natural gas generator that is tested every week.
