Certifying Alarm Company Service Compliance
The certification of alarm services aims to provide a connection of confidence between property owners, service providers, and other stakeholders; including code authorities, insurance companies, and government agencies. UL technical staff assesses alarm companies for their ability to install, maintain, test, inspect, and monitor alarm systems, as well as, provide runner service and communicate with the proper authorities.
For more than a century, UL has collaborated with the alarm industry, code authorities, and user groups to develop today’s model for Alarm Service Certification. UL’s Alarm Certificate Services Program aims to deliver the highest level of confidence in alarm systems in today’s market. The UL Certificate is an alarm company’s declaration that the alarm system has been installed, and will be maintained, tested, and monitored, in accordance to the most up-to-date applicable codes and standards. UL lists qualified alarm service companies and providers in compliance with UL 827, UL 681, UL 2050, and NFPA 72.
