When I login to my MyHome account, I do not see ‘ULwebCerts’ under ‘Quick Links’.

This occurs when you have completed the MyHome account registration, but do not yet have access your company’s proprietary information.  To gain access to ULwebCerts, your company’s gatekeeper must authorize your request to proprietary information.

Please verify:

  1. Your company has established a gatekeeper.
  2. Your company’s gatekeeper has granted you access to ULwebCerts

Please Note: your company’s gatekeeper is the only person with the authority to grant access to your company’s proprietary information on ULwebCerts. Alarm Certificate Services cannot grant access to your company’s account.

For more information regarding the gatekeeper and/or the gatekeeper agreement, please refer to the ‘Gatekeeper Agreement’ and ‘Requesting Access to Company Information’ tutorials which can be found on the Alarm Certificate Services website (ul.com/ulwebcerts/) under ‘Client Resources’.

    How many days do I have to correct a Certificate without changing the serial number?

    • You have 30 days from the date the Certificate is issued to modify or correct any Certificate details. After 30 days, the Certificate must be replaced.
      • If a Certificate can be corrected, you will see the option to ‘Correct’ to the right of the Certificate, in the Certificate pop up window. Once the 30 day time period has elapsed, the option to ‘Correct’ will no longer be visible (see picture below)
    •
