Links to INFO on this page:
Thousands of our clients' facilities, as
well as some of their residences, are monitored here
locally, in the
high security facility that we own. operate,
and control directly. That
is a very important fact and distinction that sets YPS miles apart from
other firms - most security
dealers have customers' alarms monitored by a third party contract
central. In great contrast, YPS
is better able to customize and personalize our alarm monitoring
services much more specifically to the needs of our clients, limited
only by necessity to maintain U.L. Standards for alarm central stations.
When a client understands this difference in alarm monitoring or if they
have experienced others before switching to
we get very high marks and strong comments about our great service.

least three operators are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, complete with
Power Backup - An independent electrical
power generator stands by 24 hours a day in the event of a power failure, so all

full power equipment. No interruption in service.
Automation - The central station is fully
automated in operation, complete with the latest computer hardware and
Field Engineering Inspections - UL

Alarm monitoring process
and applications (more info):
What is "monitoring," and what is meant by "central
station"? Why is the central station function critical? Does it really
matter if a central station is UL Certified? Is one central station just
the same as another?
All systems for security and fire are monitored, watched
and tested, for any sign that a device has triggered an alarm due to detecting a
particular condition. Any system or system device sends out coded electronic
signals over telephone lines, the cellular network, satellite network, the
internet, etc., or a combination of all. Signals go into a
specialized receiver and all information is immediately displayed on one of
central station's computers. These signals are instantly received by our
specially trained central station security operators inside our secured central
station. Depending upon the the signal (intrusion, fire, heat, smoke, power,
duress, low temperature, etc.), the appropriate measures are taken by the
experienced security operator (dispatch of appropriate fire department, police,
rescue, etc.). People who should be notified are notified of this event. This
process of monitoring of a system takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365
days per year. The monitoring function and the central station function,
therefore, are critical functions or systems. They must be up and running and
not miss a signal that a fire has started, a person is in trouble, etc. These
are life safety issues, and life may be at stake.

Standards - what they mean for a central station and
MOST central stations are NOT UL Certified. Most do NOT meet
the rigorous, high, costly standards set by Underwriters' Laboratories. Outside
of these, there are few standards in the monitoring industry. What some may call
a central station could be as loose as an answering service (this has been a
practice in the industry by some companies, while not widespread). The essential
point is this: what standards does a central station meet? Is there a
reliable, disinterested, and trustworthy third party that will certify
that a central station meets a rigorous code? Yes, Underwriters' Laboratories.
Other than that, in many cases you are only taking someone's word that a central
station operates in a certain way. With UL, you have certification,
verification, and on-going checking of that central station. A central station
that has a UL listing is the best choice for the obvious reasons.
YPS Integrated Systems owns and operates their in-house
central station that is local, in Ohio, and that is UL Certified. It is a high
standard. All of these standards we maintain to protect the
integrity of the system and better ensure that your alarm signals and conditions will be
monitored and properly handled.
YPS Integrated Systems, UL Certificate Numbers:
Intrusion - U.L. Certification BP2169
Fire - U.L. Certification S1591
