UL2050 requirements not always being met
Many companies are not meeting the specific requirements of UL2050. Keep in mind that there is a UL Certificate that the company must have to do the installations as well as a UL Certificate to Monitor a UL2050 account.(CRZM) Many companies do the installations without the install Certificate. (CRZH) Verify that the company you are dealing with has each certificate. The NSA came from Washington to verify that our Central Station would meet the requirements that they needed for the Military monitoring for the Utah Army National Guard.
