ADT Security Services Goes Live With ASAP Program

ASAP transmits emergency electronic signals to PSAPs more efficiently.

ADT Security Services has pushed the ASAP program live in Richmond, Va., on Aug. 25, a move the CSAA hopes will prompt other cities around the country follow.

ASAP is designed to increase the efficiency and reliability of emergency electronic signals from central alarm companies to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP). The program cuts down the processing portion of the emergency response to seconds instead of minutes, according to the company, and ensures complete and accurate information is delivered to the PSAPs.

“Having ADT go live is a milestone for the ASAP program, said Pamela J. Petrow, CSAA president and CEO of Vector Security. “With the size of their account base, ADT’s utilization of ASAP brings instant benefits to most PSAPs. This is critical because it allows the PSAP to better position the deployment of ASAP among their many initiatives.”

ASAP, launched in 2011, has the potential to save PSAPs and emergency services large sums of money, the company says.

“ADT’s implementation of ASAP is a win-win for ADT, the ASAP project and the city of Richmond,” said Bill Hobgood, Project Manager, Public Safety Team Department of Information Technology City of Richmond. “ADT will experience first-hand the benefits of using the ASAP program that so many other alarm central stations have experienced. This is the ASAP project’s biggest achievement yet. The city of Richmond’s emergency communications staff are thrilled about ADT joining the program and anxious for more alarm companies to follow.”
