UL Statistic Report

This Help File Page was issued on 09/30/2017

The UL Statistics Report was specifically designed and documented to comply with the System Wide Reports Section 10.2.1 and 10.22 (a) - (g) of the Third Edition UL® 1981 Standard.

10.2.1 - The automation system shall be able to output the following standardized statistical reports (UL Statistic Report) both by certified accounts, non-certified accounts and both combined as indicated below:

a)If the central station has multiple locations then the totals must be broken down by each central station location that is responsible for delivering monitoring services.

b)Certificated account activity shall include the statistics as specified in 10.2.(a) - (g).

10.2.2 - These reporting requirements are listed below:

a)As a minimum. the most recent full month in which 100 or more alarm investigations have occurred, shall be used;

b)At a maximum, the alarm investigations that occurred in the most recent six months shall be used;

c)Alarms for which a runner was required but not dispatched or did not arrive shall be included in the calculation;

d)All statistics shall be broken down by certificate type, such as fire alarm systems, central-station burglar alarm systems, proprietary burglar alarm systems, national  industrial burglar alarm systems, mercantile burglar alarm systems, or residential burglar alarm systems, and account number;

e)Total number of events, requiring operator action, that occurred in certificated accounts;

f)Operator acknowledgment time shall be listed by longest time, average time, and shortest time; and

g)Runner response elapsed time shall be listed by longest time, average time, and shortest time.  Elapsed time shall be determined  by using the difference between the time recorded for the receipt of the alarm signal ([See 10.1.3(e)] at the central station, and the time recorded at the central station as a result of a signal given by the runner representing the operating company upon arrival at the entrance of the subscriber's premises. See 10.1.3(i).

4.UL® national industrial burglar alarm systems,
