Does a UL-Approved Monitoring Center Translate to Increased Home Safety?

As a consumer, we assume that our security systems are functioning as they should, unless the batteries need to be replaced in a smoke or carbon monoxide detector, or one of the sensors. Just ensuring that the batteries are good and that the systems are working sometimes isn’t enough to guarantee that the systems are working well. That’s why Fort Knox Security Services’ home security system are UL-approved. This means that they are kept to high standards of testing, monitoring, and certification. Below is an explanation on how a UL-Approved Monitoring Center translates to increased home safety.

What does that mean for your home safety?
– UL-listed or approved central station are inspected annually by this regulatory group to ensure that companies are creating, implementing, and maintaining home security systems to high industry standards.
– Because UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is a third-party regulatory group, their certification is a important factor in acceptance by everyone from insurers to law enforcement. This means that your security system is compatible with your local police department’s processes and that you are equipped to get a fast response no matter what triggers your security system. Additionally, many insurance agencies will reduce monthly premiums if a resident has a home security system or, even better, a UL- approved home security system because it means that the insurance agency is faced with less risk of someone breaking into your home or of fire- or crime-related property damage.

Knowing that your home security system is regulated and audited by an outside authority can bring you peace of mind. It can also give that same peace of mind to your insurance company and ensure that your home is always protected.
