ANSI/SIA CP-01 Standard

What is ANSI/SIA CP-01 Standard?

The ANSI/SIA CP-01 Standard developed by the Security Industry Association (SIA) uses technology, industry experience and common knowledge approaches to pinpoint the causes of and decrease the frequency of false alarm dispatches. The vast majority of alarm dispatches are caused by human error, and the CP-01 standard enables those interacting with security panels to prevent and correct mistakes, while maintaining important security safeguards.

Since dispatched alarms typically occur during entry and exit of a facility, CP-01 specifies key features for the exiting/arming and entering/disarming of a premise. For example, a 45-second alarm ensures a person can exit a building without accidentally activating an alarm should they become preoccupied with locating keys or their mobile device.

Benefits of ANSI/SIA CP-01

  • Saves customers and industry personnel time and money with decreased alarm dispatches and programmable swinger shutdown.
  • Specifications for cross zoning and carbon monoxide zoning.
  • Designed with features applicable for both residential and commercial properties.
  • Automatic installation and maintenance testing.
  • Enhanced security measures like the duress alarm, a unique code that can be entered by a user to trigger a silent call for help while under threat from an intruder.
  • Features, including specifications for carbon monoxide zones and qualifications for swinger shutdown, can save owners a tremendous amount of money in an industry where authorities may charge upwards of $500 per alarm dispatch.

New to CP-01 2014

  • Extended features for remote devices, touchscreen panels and touchscreen remote devices such as smartphones and tablets.
  • Improved testing methods for popular false alarm reduction methods such as "swinger shutdown."
