Less than one percent of all alarm companies across the country are UL Listed, and many states do not have any form of competency licensing required for contractors. At the same time, many security system contractors use a one-size fits all approach for security regardless if the premises is low- risk or is a high- risk, high- burglary and/or robbery exposure site. With this huge gap of standards applied and/or misapplied, it is mission critical for standards-based security to be properly designed, installed, programmed, inspecting, tested, maintained and monitored into all types of security systems. Case studies will be provided where the proper security systems were installed and where the systems catastrophically failed.

Learning Objectives:
1. Attendees will be able to identify if the security system meets standards, or not.
2. Identify serious defects and irregularities on security systems before a loss occurs.
3. Understand the core fundamental of alarm science methodology.
