Been switched to C.O.P.S. Monitoring

Looks like I was transitioned to COPS monitoring today from Amcest. For those of us that have been transitioned this way I imagine it might be necessary to update the alarm permits we have on file with our cities. Can someone from SS post the full details of COPS here for that purpose? Thanks.

@ian_4 Thank you for posting!

I contacted C.O.P.S. and they told me to call SimpleSafe during their regular business hours even though they had my account number in front of them!. I encountered rudeness and the first rep hung up on me. I wasn't upset when I called for help but I AM NOW.
