Who Are Security Central Station Monitoring Companies?

Installers and alarm dealers typically partner with alarm monitoring companies. Typically medium-large alarm companies and maybe even large end-users operate their own monitoring stations, but a big portion of the market use independent /wholesale monitoring companies instead.

This edited list is partially taken from CSAA's "5-Diamond Certified" (an operator training program) directory, but is stripped down to only the wholesale monitors/independent monitoring companies on that list. There are many others not on this list and outside North America.

Here's the list so far. If you see a mistake or omission, just add a comment below:
