Certification of alarm services provides a connection of confidence between owners, service providers and other stakeholders including authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs), insurance companies and government agencies. We assess alarm companies for their ability to install, maintain, test, inspect, monitor and communicate with proper authorities and provide runner service.
For more than 90 years, UL has worked with the alarm industry, user groups and AHJs to develop today’s model for alarm service certification. UL Certification of alarm services delivers the highest level of confidence available in today’s market and helps provide a trusted level of differentiation for service providers. Along with the recognition of the UL brand, the UL Certificate is a declaration from alarm companies that the system has been installed and will be maintained, tested and monitored according to the latest applicable codes and standards.
UL delivers third-party oversight and many businesses, government contractors and insurance providers may require a UL Certificate as a condition of compliance and continuing operation. UL certifies alarm service providers and companies to UL 827, UL 681, UL 2050 and NFPA 72 standards. UL also provides the industry’s first true online alarm certificate request tool, available exclusively for UL’s alarm service customers.
