The 5 Diamond Dealer Program

The Monitoring Association has started a program to extend its certifications to dealers.

Now, when a dealer works with a 5 Diamond-rated central station, it can also receive a 5 Diamond status and use the branding online and on other marketing materials.

The move was probably made in an effort to encourage dealers to work with 5 Diamond certified central stations.

So, if you’re already working with AvantGuard, you can reach out to your dealer care representative for more details on how to apply.

Top Tech To Look For At ISC West 2019

ISC West took place this week, and there was a lot of really exciting technology on the show floor.

Before the show took place, however, a few items called our attention. The first was a smart sensor developed to monitor a variety of events through a single unit.

The HALO IoT smart sensor, as it is called, is able to monitor breaking glass, gunshots, carbon monoxide, vapor, and smoke.

The second piece of technology that called our attention is software that can be integrated with existing security cameras, and is designed to recognize license plate numbers.

The creators of the software believe the technology will help to combat crime as well as terrorism. I guess we’ll see if they’re right in the years to come.

What Is UL 2050?

Are you UL Certified? Regardless of whether you are or not, understanding UL 2050 is essential for every company that installs and maintains alarm systems.

In our article on UL 2050, we explain what the certification is, who it’s for, and why it’s important to have.

UL 2050 was written to provide safety regulations for alarm-based products and works to ensure that consumers are properly protected when they use the device.
