Alarm Quality Program Adds 22 New Members


Alarm companies continue to jump on to a program designed
to provide a certification of excellence and help the fight
to prevent false alarms. The Installation Quality (IQ)
Certification Program recently added 22 alarm firms and
continues to work for false alarm reduction and alarm
company commitment to meeting established standards and
operating procedures that are compositely to distinguish
them from other firms in the industry.

Alarm firms that wish to obtain IQ Certification must
adhere to a rigid set of installation and false alarm
prevention guidelines. To qualify, companies must provide
superior maintenance, service programs and training in
industry-recognized programs. They must also meet all the
licensing requirements of their locale and state, in
addition to having the proper insurance coverage.

“We are pleased to see that the number of IQ Certified companies keeps growing,” says Lisa Prosser, chairperson of the IQ Certification Board. “Security companies understand that in order to raise the bar in our industry and keep a competitive edge, they must be able to prove to customers, prospects and police that they are proactive on quality and false alarm reduction issues.”

The goals of the program are to raise the overall quality and false alarm control effectiveness of electronic security and life safety systems. In addition to providing a quality badge of honor, IQ Certified companies provide competitive marketing advantages, less false system activations, increased customer satisfaction, improved system reliability, more referrals and reduced costs.
