CamerEye is proud to say that our product conforms to UL 2017 standards. It’s a differentiator between our product and many other pool alarms on the market. Conforming to the stringent UL2017 standard, means that CameraEye can replace door alarms, floating pool alarms, and in-pool splash alarms in some cities and counties.
What is the UL 2017 Standard? #
UL 2017 criteria apply to signaling devices intended for emergency or non-emergency usage, utilized indoors and/or outdoors, and built and used in compliance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, where applicable.
These criteria apply to emergency-signaling items that are associated with property and/or life safety and are non-fire/non-security alarm in nature. These products are examined in terms of product safety and signaling appropriateness.
a) Devices or systems of type UM (User-Monitored) are intended to be monitored and tested by the user. These devices are either meant for domestic usage or are personal signaling devices that the user carries.
b) Type SM (Self-Monitored) devices or systems are self-monitoring in nature. These devices are meant for business use, but are not limited to it.
c) Devices or systems of type AM (Attendant-Monitored) are meant to be regularly operated and maintained by competent and experienced individuals, either locally or at a remote location.
d) Domestic Water Hazard entrance alarms are devices or systems designed to be put on gates, doors, or access barriers surrounding residential swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs to sound an auditory alarm if unlawful entry is detected.
Non-emergency-signaling items covered by these requirements are classified as Type NM (Non-Monitored), are unrelated to property and/or life safety, and are only examined in terms of product safety.
A product as defined by these standards is a unit assembly of electrical parts with provision for connecting power supply circuits routed through the equipment by a prescribed circuiting system. Circuits extending from the products connect to separate devices that actuate the operating component of the product for signals and to separate and/or integral devices that show the signals, forming a coordinated system combination for definite signaling services. An installation wiring diagram linked to the product or referenced in the product marking shows the devices and circuits that have been determined to be field-capable with the product.
Devices not covered by these requirements: #
a) Visual signaling appliances as defined in the UL 1638 Standard for Visual Signaling Appliances – Private Mode Emergency and General Utility Signaling;
b) Audible signaling devices that are not included with the product and are not covered by the UL 464 Standard for Audible Signal Appliances;
c) Fire-protective signaling system equipment used to detect, monitor, indicate, or control a fire condition;
d) Equipment intended for use in burglary-deterrent security alarm systems;
e) Home health-care signaling equipment as defined in the UL 1637 Standard for Home Health-Care Signaling Equipment
