SIA False Alarm Standard Approved by ANSI


The Security Industry Association (SIA) announces the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the release of SIA’s ANSI/SIA CP-01-2000 SIA Control Panel Standard – Features for False Alarm Reduction (new standard) as a new American National Standard. SIA’s Standards Program considers the approval a major achievement in the association’s efforts to develop credible standards to be used throughout the security industry.

Ron Spiller, executive director of SIA, says, “None of the SIA standards developed to date have received so much attention and interest from so many contributors as CP-01. The revised control/communicator standard is the cornerstone of the security industry’s efforts to reduce false alarms through improved equipment performance.”

Spiller credits Jim Stevens of Caddx Controls, chairman of the panel standards subcommittee, for much of the effort it took to complete the standard. An updated copy of the standard may be found at
