COPS Monitoring has UL listed, FM approved, IQ certified, and CSAA 5-diamond certified central stations. Five of the six central stations are actively load sharing and hot redundant. With locations in New Jersey, Florida, Arizona, Tennessee, and Texas – regional disasters do not have the ability to impact all of the geo-diverse facilities. The sixth autonomous central station located in Maryland is approved for UL 2050 and government services monitoring. Load-sharing means that all sites share in processing the signals of the entire company to ensure the fastest response times possible. Hot-redundant means that all of the central stations are staffed and operate 24/7. Unlike other monitoring companies, COPS central stations are not “backup” sites that need to be activated and staffed in the event of an emergency.

Many Alarm Companies offer home control and lifestyle products that give consumers the ability to control their alarm system and home automation services. However, none of them can tell their customers what happened during an alarm event!  Was a correct passcode given? Were the authorities dispatched? Is everyone OK?  With MPower we can give you peace of mind by providing the information you are missing at the moment you need it most!  In addition to viewing alarm history, you'll have the ability to view your account information, passcodes, and responding party lists exactly the way the data exists in our monitoring system, place you account on test, call the central station, and even request service.

                                                                    Severe storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, brush fires... Where on the map could you locate a central station that would never be affected by some adverse local condition? The truth is, no single location is immune to every type of local crisis.  Unfortunately, when these conditions occur near a stand-alone central station, they often wreak havoc on response times by exponentially increasing signal traffic while making it difficult or impossible to get dispatchers to work to adequately handle the surging workload. If you have ever had your accounts monitored by a company with a single central station, chances are you have experienced long response times due to local conditions.    


Reliability and redundancy depend on more than industry certifications, fault-tolerant equipment, and backup systems; they also rely on people. In addition to having backup equipment deployed at the geographically diverse locations, staffing is also balanced across the country. That way, when local conditions threaten one of the locations, we prepare by over-staffing the other locations. This strategy has proven itself effective time and time again. Instead of causing response times to average minutes (like at other monitoring companies), when local conditions strike a COPS Monitoring central station, the already low response times that our customers have come to expect may even decrease as the result of the load sharing advantage.
