UL

In March of 2011 we announced the UL listing of our Central Station. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has been testing and certifying security and life safety products for almost a century and they are unmatched in technical expertise and the recognized leader in certification.

Since 1986 when the building in Wiscasset was built, Northeast Security’s owners designed and planned the building in line with UL requirements knowing eventually the time would come when we would apply for our listing. Specific standards for Central Stations involve infrastructure security, backup up and system redundancy as well as alarm handling protocol, staffing requirements and documentation methods.

How does this affect you?

If you are looking for a security provider UL indicates reliability. Many insurance underwriters are requiring UL Central Stations, check with yours today. If you are an existing customer of ours, you will see no impact, but will continue to receive quality service and responsiveness from our Operators. You can have additional confidence in knowing we have been thoroughly examined by Underwriters Laboratory, the true leaders in safety standards.

If you are a commercial customer, you need not worry about your insurance provider requesting this certification in the future, we have it and you are already in compliance.
