BALTIMORE—Monitoring PERS and mPERS is different from monitoring traditional alarms, ESX 2015 panelists said in the “To PERS or Not to PERS” educational session, and those who can’t handle all that monitoring PERS entails in-house might be better leaving that the market to central stations that can.
SAN ANTONIO—United Central Control, a wholesale monitoring center based here, is planning to build an out-of-state back-up central station, possibly in Nashville, Tenn., Mark Matlock, company SVP, told Security Systems News. That news comes alongside other growth developments at the company.
Some companies this year have discussed the benefit of moving from operating their own central stations to partnering with a third party monitoring center, including RFI Communications, Red Hawk Fire & Security and Comtronics. Will more companies switch to using wholesale centrals?
