Separate but equal access to Monitoring America’s services is integral to who we are. Each individual alarm company is in control of how their accounts are handled. In addition, every alarm company, regardless of size, pays the same price for each service we offer. Furthermore, everyone shares equal access to Monitoring America’s excellent response times.
The over three decades of stability and success of Monitoring America as a Co-Op is, at least in part, due to the structure set forth in the Corporate By-Laws. It ensures that no single alarm company can ever obtain a controlling interest in the operation because they are limited to a single share of stock. This means that each shareholder has an equal voice in electing the Board of Directors which oversees the operation at the highest level. It also means that you’ll never experience the disruption of having your monitoring station sold out from under you.
We support a number of alarm industry associations, including The Monitoring Association, the Security Industry Association, the Electronic Security Association, and the National Fire Protection Association to further the interests of alarm companies and alarm monitoring nationwide.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global self-funded nonprofit organization, established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property, and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards.
Established in 1948, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) is the largest trade association in the United States representing the electronic security and life safety industry. Member companies install, integrate, and monitor intrusion and fire detection, video surveillance, and electronic access control systems for commercial, residential, industrial, and governmental clients. ESA provides technical and management training, government advocacy and delivers the information, advice, tools, and services that members use to grow their businesses and prosper.
The Security Industry Association (SIA) is the leading trade association for global security solution providers, with over 1,000 innovative member companies representing thousands of security leaders and experts who shape the future of the security industry. SIA protects and advances its members' interests by advocating pro-industry policies and legislation at the federal and state levels; creating open industry standards that enable integration; advancing industry professionalism through education and training; opening global market opportunities, and collaboration with other like-minded organizations. As the premier sponsor of ISC Events expos and conferences, SIA ensures its members have access to top-level buyers and influencers, as well as unparalleled learning and network opportunities. SIA also enhances the position of its members in the security marketplace through SIA GovSummit, which brings together private industry with government decision-makers and Securing New Ground®, the security industry's top executive conference for peer-to-peer networking.
The Monitoring Association (TMA) is the trade association representing the professional monitoring industry.
