Electronic and physical security
UL is the leading third-party certification agency for security and signaling products and systems. A UL certification provides the quickest and surest route to product acceptance by regulatory authorities, insurers, law enforcement organizations, government, retailers and consumers.
The UL advantage
Acceptance from demand drivers -- The UL Mark is the most trusted symbol of product integrity among organizations that demand third-party certification for mission critical devices and systems.
Cooperation with government agencies -- UL works closely with the U.S. Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security to develop the latest security standards that will affect the security and signaling industry.
Insurance industry preference -- UL certification for alarm equipment and installations are often specifically mandated by insurance companies seeking to improve their loss-to-premium ratios.
Increased marketability -- UL certification allows manufacturers to differentiate themselves from non-UL listed manufacturers, giving them the ability to sell equipment at increased margins and to customers requiring UL certification.
Technical expertise -- UL engineers are experts in the complex technology of alarm systems. UL has primary designated engineers (PDEs) dedicated to electronic security equipment.
