Robert A. Jones II co-authored an article – "Contractual Issues for Third-Party Central Stations" – featured in the Fall 2011 edition of the CSAA Dispatch, a publication of the International Central Station Alarm Association.

Read the full article.

According to Jones, third-party central stations looking to capitalize on the growing trend of alarm dealers engaging their services must consider the following:

  2. Representation and warranties
  3. No co-mingled lines
  4. Special covenants for significant dealers
  5. Lender requirements
  6. Assignment and modification agreement
