NMC Merges with Three Major Monitoring Companies to form one of the Most Global Monitoring Companies in the World
In the event you did not know, there is a new alarm ordinance in place for dealers in Colorado Springs, CO. We want to make sure you are fully knowledgeable and in compliance with the new regulations that are in place.
Per the Colorado Springs Municipal Code, alarm companies must obtain an alarm company license with Colorado Springs, renewable annually. Additionally, alarm companies are required to register their subscribers, pay a registration fee and obtain an alarm user permit, renewable annually.
At the time of an alarm dispatch request, the alarm company license and subscribers’ alarm permit number must be provided. The Police Department shall have (at their discretion) the ability to deny response to an alarm condition unless there is actual evidence that a crime is being or has been committed, for failure to provide the license and/or alarm permit number.
Please be sure to provide NMC with your company license number as well as the alarm permit number for each of your subscribers.

Who cares if it’s day time?
A Fountain Valley based business is closed for the weekend. Shortly after 9:00am a suspect enters the outdoor area of the business heading directly toward the outdoor camera. He tries repeatedly to remove the camera without success. Our prompt intervention with the video enhancement resulted in the apprehension of this burglar.
Seconds before 10:00pm, two suspects are caught on video creeping around a business that had closed for the evening. While one suspect uses a flashlight to try and pry the door open, the other suspect is pacing around and seems as if he is keeping a look-out. Due to immediate action by the alarm agents and Fountain Valley PD, the two suspects were caught in action and arrested on scene.
Great job team JMG!

Lake Forest, CA, June 30, 2016— This week, the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) International announced that the National Monitoring Center locations in Lake Forest, CA and Irving, TX had obtained the prestigious “CSAA Five Diamond Central Station Certification.”
This Certification testifies that 100% of the company’s central station operators have achieved proficiency and certification by passing the CSAA Central Station On-Line Operator Training Course. These courses cover virtually all phases of central station communications with customers, law enforcement, fire and emergency services communications centers. This critical area of communications is the life-saving link between the residential or business properties and the law enforcement, fire and emergency services in local areas.
In order to achieve the Five Diamond Certification, each and every operator must have not only passed the course, but demonstrated:
- Proficiency in alarm verification, which helps reduce false alarms;
- Proficiency in communications with Public Service Answering Points, such as the Emergency 911 centers;
- Knowledge of electronic communications equipment, including radio;
- An understanding of the codes and standards of such organizations as Underwriters Laboratories, Factory Mutual, the National Fire Protection Association and others; and
- Proficiency in the area of emergency preparedness under a wide scenario of possibilities.
In addition, Five Diamond companies have demonstrated an exceptionally high degree of responsibility to their local community and their customers through the investment of time, money and commitment to 100% quality operator training.
Of the approximately 2,700 central stations in the United States, fewer than two hundred central stations have achieved Five Diamond Certified status
“Achieving the Five Diamond Central Station Certification validates all of the hard work and forward-thinking philosophy of our company,” commented Woodie Andrawos, President of NMC. “NMC’s mission is to provide the highest degree of technology, customer service and CSR training for the benefit of our dealers, and the CSAA certification signifies our commitment to remain the nation’s premier central station.”

CSAA is legally entitled to represent its members before Congress and regulatory agencies on the local, state and federal levels, and other authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) over the industry.
