One of the biggest pros to a professionally installed, highly effective security system is that all components of the system are UL listed. Meaning, in case of a fire, each device including the carbon monoxide, smoke detectors, and panel have been fully tested to the industry’s highest standard to ensure safety.
Unfortunately with many DIY solutions, some components are UL listed, but the system’s panel, which receives the signal and activates an alarm is not. This testing is required by NFPA 70 for the security and life-safety portions of a system. It is a nationally recognized industry standard and best practice.
When investing in a professional security solution, your system is thoroughly tested and certified through nationally recognized and independent laboratories. Take comfort in knowing your family is shielded by the same level of security and quality used in the country’s largest, most trusted financial institutions.
