The Central Station Alarm Association’s Central Station Excellence Awards, sponsored by SDM Magazine, are designed to recognize any central station that is certified by one of the CSAA-recognized Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories. (Applicants are not required to be CSAA members.) The purpose of the awards is to promote the value of central station services, honor those who have made significant contributions to the industry and who promote the level of professionalism of UL listed central stations. Awards include: Central Station of the Year; Central Station Manager of the Year; Central Station Operator of the Year; and Central Station Support Person of the Year. The winners are profiled in SDM’s August issue and on the website.
