    National Monitoring Center held an open house at their brand new, state-of-the-art 8,000 square foot facility here on February 12. The central station serves independent alarm dealers in the Texas market and has been in operation since the summer of 2008. The new UL-listed central station is fully redundant with NMC’s original 10,000 square foot Aliso Viejo, Calif. central station that opened in 2002.


    More than 100 guests, representing alarm companies from Texas as well as various other states, attended the open house. The guests were given tours of the facility and had the opportunity to meet with the company’s management team.

    Security Systems News toured the new facility on February 22, led through the rooms of glass, concrete and chrome by central station manager Stefan Rayner.


    Rayner spoke at length about the design and development of the new facility and the stringent requirements for attaining UL-Listing. Visit the Monitor This blog at for an account of the visit.


    “I’ve been involved in the design of about six monitoring facilities during my 29 or so years in the contract monitoring business,” said Michael Schubert, NMC president in a release. “I believe our Texas location is the finest that I’ve been involved in because we put all of our experience as well as the latest technology into the design. With an experienced management team in place, we bring the Texas market a much needed state-of-the-art facility.”


    The central station uses the latest technology and is fully redundant with the California location, providing a high level of reliability and service to alarm companies and their customers. NMC purchased the newly constructed building and spent more than 18 months creating the most technologically advanced contract monitoring station serving the electronic security industry.


    “The facility and technology along with an experienced management team and comprehensively trained staff offer alarm dealers the support they need to grow their business,” said Woodie Andrawos, NMC executive vice president in a release. “We listen to our dealers every day and this facility and the services we provide reflect what they need to be successful in a very competitive market.”


    NMC is a UL-listed and FM-approved third party monitoring central station company that provides services to independent alarm companies. NMC is a member of various professional trade associations including Texas BFAA, and North Texas BFAA. For more information, call 800-662-1711 or visit the website.
