VIENNA, Va. – The Monitoring Association (TMA) has opened a 60-day review and comment period for its ANSI/TMA CS-V-01 2019 standard.
Alarm Confirmation, Verification and Notification Procedures defines methods by which false notifications for signals received from security systems can be reduced. It was prepared under the direction of the Security Industry Standards Council (SISC) members with the participation of TMA members, Security Industry Association (SIA) members, Electronic Security Association (ESA) members, ASIS members and the Canadian Alarm Association (CANASA) members.
TMA says this standard defines multiple attempt confirmation, biometric, audio and video confirmation. Additionally, beyond the use of confirmation in standard or basic security systems, this document defines methods by which it can be determined an unauthorized activity is in progress and cannot be identified, thus false notifications can be greatly reduced.
