Rapid Response Is The First Third Party Monitoring Center To Receive UL Listing For AVS-01

SYRACUSE, NY, April 1, 2024 — Early adopters of the new TMA-AVS-01 Alarm Validation Scoring Standard, Rapid Response Monitoring Services, Inc. has earned the Underwriters Laboratories UL-CAVS listing, becoming the first third party monitoring center to both adopt the standard and receive the UL listing. 

“AVS-01’s accurate scoring and classification of intrusion alarms improves situational awareness and allows Specialists to relay a more comprehensive depiction of what is happening at the premises. This standard is a critical need for our industry, so we dedicated substantial resources to put it in place and secure the UL listing as soon as possible,” said Morgan Hertel, Vice President of Technology & Innovation. 

AVS-01 is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) compliant standard developed by The Monitoring Association to enhance professional monitoring services. Rapid Response fully deployed AVS-01 on January 15, 2024, following two years of preparation and four months of beta testing.  

“Our customized and fully proprietary monitoring software analyzes alarm data, applies AVS-01 standardized scoring, and generates a priority level for all intrusion alarms. This score is based on the probability of unauthorized activity at the location. Communicating AVS-01 scores to authorities during dispatch results in enhanced protection, reduced calls for service, increased customer satisfaction, and a competitive advantage for our Rapid Response Dealers. For these reasons, delaying deployment was simply not an option,” said Jeffrey Atkins, President.
