Keep Your IP in Cooperation with UL to Establish Expansion of Standards in Alarm Services Category

Irvine, CA, Dec 04, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- KYI, Inc. out of Irvine, California, has announced their cooperation with global standards provider, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) in an attempt to expand the scope of several of their standards and categories wherein the Keep Your IP line of IP forwarding services can become certified.


At present, UL's Certification of Alarm Services is specific to protected properties and has some limits. These limits include the aspects of the telecommunications infrastructure within the service. UL Alarm Service Certificates currently specify that their Certificates do not apply to the communications channel between the protected property and any facility that monitors signals from the protected property.

Keep Your IP's service, and its supporting hardware, lie in the communications channel between protected property and the monitoring facility which presently puts it outside the scope of UL's Certification.

Davin Roos, President of KYI, Inc. says, "We are very excited to assist UL in establishing a category that will address new technological advancements on communications within the alarm industry" "Today's technology makes it possible for innovators to deliver an amazing array of new and beneficial services. Helping organizations bring those services into the market in a way that preserves the integrity of the public's security is a big part of UL's mission," stated Steve Schmit, Engineering Manager at UL LLC out of Northbrook, IL. "We look forward to working with Keep Your IP and the entire industry on Certification solutions that bring trust and confidence to all stakeholders." UL has confirmed that an alarm company's use of the Keep Your IP service would not impact their Listing or Certification status in any way.

To that end, UL has communicated their desire to better accommodate the rapidly changing communications infrastructure and hope to have an offering that fits the Keep Your IP product in the not too distant future, possibly as early as the first quarter of 2013.

About UL UL is a global independent safety science company offering expertise across five key strategic businesses: Product Safety, Environment, Life & Health, Verification Services and Knowledge Services. Their breadth, established objectivity and proven history mean they are a symbol of trust and enable them to help provide peace of mind to all.

About Keep Your IP: KYI, Inc. out of Irvine, California, offers the first and only internet IP forwarding service designed just for the alarm industry.

Marketed under the name, Keep Your IP, their offering is described as both a tool to help promote competition among central stations as well as an IP disaster recovery support service.

Just like toll-free number portability makes it possible for alarm dealers with telco based panels to quickly change central station providers, Keep Your IP makes it possible for dealers that have switched to IP based panels to do the same. Whether the change is due to a smart business decision or as critical as needing to resolve a monitoring station disaster recovery situation, Keep Your IP's secure forwarding service makes it happen quickly and effortlessly.

By providing secure IPv4 numbered address, Keep Your IP gives alarm dealers the peace of mind they get with knowing that as their business grows and merges into the new internet IP based world, they will be able to direct that growth as they desire.
