Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is a trusted resource known around the world for product safety and service certification. Since being founded in 1894, UL examines and tests devices, systems, and material to determine how their performance affects life, fire, casualty, hazards, and crime prevention.

If you run a business with high-value inventory or critical data, such as a jewelry store, warehouse, art gallery, or financial services company, your insurance company may require that your intrusion system meets standards set by UL. For other businesses, an Evidence of Security System letter issued by your security provider may be sufficient. Contact your insurance company to find out your requirements.

DGA can satisfy any insurance company requirements for UL security and fire systems. DGA holds UL Listings in several categories including Central Station Burglar Alarm, Central Station Protective Signaling Services, and Mercantile Burglar Alarm Systems. In fact, DGA has more UL Central Station Certificates in force than any other security company in the U.S.
