When it comes to safeguarding your family and valuables, you want only the best protection. Yet, approximately two million home burglaries in the U.S. are reported each year. That means about every 18 seconds, there is another home being invaded. And now, with the rise and adoption of smart devices and the Internet of Things, making your connected home secure can be even more complicated than ever.
And it’s not just about being safe at night. Many burglars usually find their way in through unlocked windows or by simply kicking in a door – all between the hours of 10 AM and 3 PM. The best way to protect your home, family and valuables are with a comprehensive security plan.
UL certification provides peace of mind that home security devices and systems operate as expected. UL standards incorporate the minimum requirements for safety, performance, reliability and interoperability.
In addition to certifying alarm systems and devices, UL also certifies the companies who professionally monitor home security systems. This certification helps to provide the confidence that your monitoring company meets minimum requirements to effectively respond to any alarms.
Safety standards are written documents that outline the process in which a product is tested to help mitigate risk, injury or danger. In its role as a standard-developing organization, UL leverages its extensive safety research, scientific expertise and uncompromising focus on quality to develop a wide variety of standards that measure and validate performance, environmental health and sustainability.
