September 8, 2011Tess Nacelewicz

ALBANY, N.Y.—A state committee has recommended that state law governing the licensing of alarm installers be reworded to make clear local governments can't require installers to have a local license in addition to their mandated state one, according to Joseph Hayes, president of the New York Burglar & Fire Alarm Association. The rewording of Article 6D is expected to end a new trend by municipalities to require installers to obtain an additional license, which Hayes and others say adds to installers'...

New York to combat municipal licensing trend

May 19, 2011Tess Nacelewicz

ALBANY, N.Y.—To end a new trend by New York municipalities to require alarm installers to get local licenses in addition to the mandated state one, a state committee is expected to recommend rewriting state law, according to the president of the New York Burglar & Fire Alarm Association. “Once we get the wording clarified that will pre-empt local communities from passing these kinds of regulations,” Joseph Hayes, who is owner of All County Security in Putnam, N.Y, and president...

Eller said the board came to a decision late in the day Feb. 15. “As of...

January 20, 2011Daniel Gelinas

Licensing of central station operators mulled in New York

December 2, 2010Daniel Gelinas

ALBANY, N.Y.—There's legislation in the works here that, if passed, would require all New York central station operators to be licensed. Some industry insiders, such as CIA Security president John Lombardi, believe there's merit in this type of legislation. But others, including Bart Didden of USA Central Station, believe this legislation is a bad idea. The proposed legislation, called Article 6-E, first appeared last fall. It was developed by outgoing New York Sen. Brian Foley and the 6-E...
