ANSI/SIA CP-01-2019 | Control Panel Standard – Features for False Alarm Reduction

Scope and Benefits

This standard details recommended design features for security system control panels and their associated arming and disarming devices to reduce the incidence of false alarms. These features are applicable to both residential and commercial properties protected by an electronic security system.

This standard is intended for use by manufacturers in the design of control panels and alarm signal receivers. It is also intended for reference by all affected parties, including security system installers, specifiers, and users; central station owners and operators; manufacturers of central station products, such as receivers and automation software; and local authorities.

This standard assumes that communications to the central station will be conducted by a robust contemporary communication protocol such as the SIA Digital Communication Standard - “SIA Format” Protocol for Alarm System Communications.
