UL Monitoring Station

The Dallas Security Systems, Inc. (DSS) Central Station is a "building within a building". It is located inside of the DSS headquarters building in Dallas, Texas. It has its own back up power supply and generators so that it can continue operations under the most adverse conditions.

It is listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Underwriters Laboratories sets the industry standards for the central station operations.

In addition to monitoring burglar and fire alarm systems, the DSS Central Station is one of the few central stations that have the capability of monitoring access control systems. We provide building management and data base management for hundreds of clients throughout North Texas. Dallas Security Systems was one of the first security companies to offer access control system monitoring.

With the consolidation of the security industry, there are not that many UL Central Stations operating locally in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. A majority of the other Dallas based central stations provide "contract monitoring" for multiple security companies which can lower the quality of service provided.
