The Monitoring Association (TMA) Standards Committee has received confirmation from ANSI that the public comment period for its TMA-AVS-01 Alarm Validation Standard is officially now open through Sept. 13.
Initiated in 2020, the standard provides a method of creating an alarm scoring or classification metric for unauthorized human activity detected by alarm systems that will assist law enforcement with resource allocation and call-for-service prioritization.
It establishes standardized methods for calculating an alarm score, or classification level, that results in a repeatable metric that estimates the validity or potential threat level of a burglar alarm activation using historical and real-time data.
To learn much more about the standard, interested parties can view an informational AVS-01 webinar that TMA hosted earlier this year.
Questions about the standard can be addressed to Bryan Ginn at email@example.com.
The American National Standards Institute is a private non-profit organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products, services, processes, systems and personnel in the United States.
