The Monitoring Association (TMA) – formerly the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) – recently unveiled its new dealer program, extending its emphasis on becoming the standard setter for monitoring services, like Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Factory Mutual Approved (FM Approved).

What Is The 5 Diamond Dealer Program?

The 5 Diamond Dealer program allows dealers to tout the 5 Diamond designation to potential customers, giving installation companies an even greater incentive to work with central stations that maintain high levels of regulatory compliance and excellence than ever before. Using the designation of the 5 Diamond program will help bolster installation companies’ reputations and consumer trust.

The 5 Diamond designation is given to dealers through the central stations they work with. Therefore, only central stations that currently hold a 5 Diamond designation can extend it to the companies they monitor for.
