Fifteen companies have the IQ


Security Systems News has written before about how IQ Certification provides what amounts to a “seal of approval” for alarm companies.

IQ is a quality certification program for security alarm systems. Companies participating in the voluntary program have to comply with ethical guidelines regarding the selling, designing, installing and monitoring of alarm systems.

Seems to me that showing that you have the IQ and are reputable can only help a company’s bottom line. Apparently, many businesses feel the being in the program is worthwhile, as evidenced by the fact that the board of IQ recently announced that 15 companies earned their recertification this month.

The companies are: AAA Security, Diamond Bar, Calif.; Affiliated Central, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Alarm 2000, Cardiff, Calif.; All Secure Protection Systems, San Diego, Calif.; Allied Central Services, (a division of Altronics Security Systems), Bethlehem, Pa; General Monitoring Services, Huntington Beach, Calif.; Monitoring America Alarm Co-Op, Tulsa, Okla.; Murrey Installations, Phoenix, Md.; ProTec II Security Systems, Dayton, Ohio; Protech Security LLC, El Paso, Texas; Pyramid Telephone Service, McFarland. Wis.; Schultz Technology Solutions, Pottstown, Pa; Security On-Line Systems, Ambler, Pa.; Security Response Center, Sarnia, Ontario; and Shenandoah Valley Security, LLC, Waynesboro, Va.

“To ensure that these companies continue to meet the IQ Certification standards, they must annually demonstrate to the Board that they meet the IQ Certification guidelines,” Tim Creenan, an IQ board member, said in a statement. “They continue to seek recertification each year because they have seen the value of IQ Certification for their companies, for the industry and for their customers.”
