The following ANSI standards relate to alarm system use. *Copies of the SIA documents are made freely available to law enforcement agencies and professionals, to obtain a copy of the document please click on the link for the relevant document. NOTE : ANSI/SIA CP-01 and ANSI/SIA PIR-01 are tested and Marked by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. This allows Law Enforcement the ability to gauge compliance with the technical specifications for these two Standards.
Control Panel Standard CP-01 - REQUEST COPY
- The first in SIA's series of false alarm standards, it details design features for security system control panels to reduce false alarms in residential and commercial properties. It covers event recognition and information handling sequences, as well as provisions for system layout testing. Addressing both user- and equipment-caused false alarms, it is intended for use or reference by all security industry professionals. The new 2010 version allows for greater flexibility for programming the SWINGER SHUTDOW and ABORT WINDOW. This Standard includes installer programming options and recommended test procedures to help determine compliance to the standard.
|ANSI/CSAA CS-V-01 – 2004.xx - NEW CSAA ECV Standard - This standard defines methods by which false dispatches can be greatly reduced. It has been proven that verifying an alarm signal by a monitoring central station will drastically reduce false dispatches. This standard takes verification to its next level by defining multiple call verification, cross zoning, biometric, audio and video verification.
Glass Break Standard Standard GB-01 - REQUEST COPY*
SIA GB-01 (1995.01) Details recommended design features for any acoustic glass break sensor in security systems to reduce the incidence of false alarms but preserve detection performance. It also outlines recommended content in manufacturers' instructions for sensor installation and application. It is intended for use or reference by all security industry professionals.
| Passive Infra-Red Standard PIR-01 - REQUEST COPY *
ANSI/SIA PIR-01-2000 - This standard details recommended design features for passive infrared motion detector technology to reduce the incidence of false alarms in security systems. The 2000 revision strengthens the features for immunity to environmental causes of false alarms. The standard is intended for use or reference by all security industry professionals. Includes recommended test procedures to help determine compliance to the standard.
| Mobile Security Devices Monitoring MSD-01 - REQUEST COPY *
ANSI/SIA MSD-01-2000 - This standard details the monitoring center operations and procedures to ensure a minimum of erroneous requests for public safety responses to Mobile Security Devices (MSDs). It applies to security devices or combinations of devices used for personal safety and/or asset protection that are mobile in nature, installed in motor vehicles or other conveyances, or carried by pedestrians. The standard is intended for implementation by all entities involved with monitoring of MSDs.
