What Is FM Approved?

FM Approved is an organization that began delivering approvals in 1886. Their longstanding history first began testing for fire protection on hydraulic systems. Since then, they have set standards for a significant portion of the security, PERS, fire and IoT industries.

Especially for central station monitoring companies, FM approval helps dealers rest assured that their monitoring partner has been properly inspected by a third-party organization. As a leading authority in their field, FM Approved is a well-recognized brand that dealers and subscribers alike can see as an added level of verification.

Why Is AvantGuard FM Approved?
