CSAA Standard Enters ANSI Review


The Central Station Alarm Association’s (CSAA) Alarm Verification and Notification Procedures Standard (CS-V-01) has entered an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review and comment period. The standard will be open for comment until Sept. 14.

The CS-V-01 standard defines methods by which false dispatches can be greatly reduced. It is an update to the 2004 version and has been proven that verifying an alarm signal by a monitoring central station will drastically reduce false dispatches. This standard takes verification to its next level by defining multiple call verification, cross zoning, biometric, audio and video verification.
