Elite Becomes First Remote Guarding Firm to Receive UL Certification
On October 4, 2016, Elite became the first company to ever receive Underwriter Laboratories (UL) certification for remote guarding services through the use of command and control. The certification requirement, which is found in UL 827 and 827B, is the first of its kind and positions Elite as a leader in our rapidly-growing managed remote guarding industry.
Receiving UL certification for Remote Guarding is a difficult task that requires excellence across the board. Elite team members worked for years to establish only the highest quality standards, helping set the bar high for other firms in the industry.
UL is a global leader in safety consulting and safety-related certifications. Elite’s certification, UL 827 B, consists of standards documentation covering managed video surveillance providers that deliver security services by using live camera feeds and related technologies to form all or part of an electronic security system for a property or organization. Elite is a leader in implementing these systems, providing clients a service known as “remote guarding.”
Elite operates a secure command center where professionally trained remote guards monitor advanced surveillance systems to track potential threats, alert authorities, and provide real-time situational awareness for law enforcement or other relevant parties. According to the UL certification, this command center meets or exceeds all certification requirements.
Elite is proud to be a part of the UL effort to bring standards to the Remote Guarding Services industry. We are excited to be the first certified service provider under the new Standard and look forward to the growth in the number of Remote Guarding service providers that the UL Standard will generate.
