With a new IQ certification campaign underway, the IQ board of directors met in May to approve the recertification of Security Systems of America of Pittsburgh, Pa.; Central Monitoring & Dispatch of Pittsburgh, Pa.; Avantguard Monitoring Centers of Ogden, Utah; Amherst Alarm of Amherst, N.Y.; Dyck Security Service Inc. of Port Huron, Mich.; Cen-Signal (SSC Services Inc.) of Columbus, Ga.; Rapid Response Monitoring Services Inc. of Syracuse, N.Y.; Alarm 2000 of Cardiff, Calif.; Shenandoah Valley Security, LLC of Waynesboro, Va.; and Deiter Bros Fuel Co., dba 4 Season’s Security of Bethlehem, Pa.

In addition, the board approved Dynamark Monitoring of Hagerstown, Md, which became IQ Certified for the first time.

“Dynamark became UL Certified, a 5 Diamond Central Station and the next logical step was IQ Certification,” said Keith Godsey, vice president of Dynamark. “IQ has become the gold standard in the industry and synonymous with quality. That’s what we want for Dynamark. In addition, some of our new dealers are IQ Certified and since the requisite is to be monitored by an IQ Certified central station, we did it to insure consistent quality.”

To ensure that these companies continue to meet the IQ Certification standards, they must annually demonstrate they meet the IQ Certification guidelines.
