The importance of UL listed products and why we chose to make our Signature products UL.
Like most IT devices similar to WiFi switches, access points and VOIP phones, IP-based security cameras come under (NEC) National Electrical Code sections that are applicable as (LPS) Limited Power Source equipment since they get powered directly from location that is central or source by way of PoE. UL fire & safety usually do not require listings for LPS devices as they meet the certification and criteria of these respective power sources ( router, the splitter, switch , etc . ). Nevertheless, regional as well as municipal requirements throughout the U.S.A. frequently require UL certification for surveillance cameras used in security installations. If the products aren't UL Listed, a different inspection is usually needed .
LPS products such as IP surveillance cameras generally are not required, nor need a UL listing , but there have been circumstances and times when our dealer or integrator’ projects were postponed simply because local inspectors demanded non-UL Listed product examination. To prevent this expense, as well as complications associated with these types of inspections we decided to help our dealer partners by moving towards an all UL solution. We’ll remain to work diligently with UL’s fire and safety association to be certain that all our security video products are UL Listed.
