We have a partnership with Ace Monitoring, Louisville Ky who does our monitoring. It has been woman owned since 1985. Ace is a FM approved monitoring facility. FM approval's is one of the 3 independent, Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTL) in the US, who inspect indutrial and commercial fire alarm installations for meeting the requirements listed in NFPA 72, The National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code plus their own standards. One of the advantages or differentiators is that we feel that FM Approvals offers it the fact that they are also one of the largest insurance companies in the world. There inspectors are degreed engineers, familiar with loss mitigation and have that dealt with real life scenario's. When they have a change to theri guidlines it is because it has been proven to be needed, not a group of people in an office brain stroming.
