The above will incur additional charges as agreed by the company representatives if required.
NOTE ~ Additional charges may be made if our engineers/technicians/installers are not provided with access to doors, shutters, windows, or any other areas where cables and equipment needs to be installed thereby incurring extra cable length. In any case, the customer will not be liable for extra costs beyond their reasonable knowledge.

You also agree to provide an adequate electricity supply for the equipment to operate correctly. If our work is interrupted or delayed because of a problem with access, or the electricity supply is inadequate, we may make an additional charge.

- GUARANTEE / WARRANTY
We provide a warranty period of 12 months on all of our CCTV products.
6.1 The customer must notify us immediately firstname.lastname@example.org of a fault occurring with the security system and we will repair such fault as soon as possible after receiving notification.
6.2 We guarantee that we will repair hardware related faults in the installed system free of charge within the warranty period from the installation date. This guarantee does not apply to matters stated in condition 6.3.
6.3 The guarantee does not apply if we believe or have reason to suspect that changes have been made to a system/products supplied by our company or to faults caused by the following:
Incorrect adjustment or positioning by you or others of any part of the system.
Consumable items of all kinds failing. Consumables are items with a finite life such as the internal hard disk drive.
Products added to the CCTV system not supplied directly by us.
Work carried out by police, fire or other authorities, or by any telecommunication agency or other party.
Changes in configuration by other parties (Telecoms, Internet providers etc)
6.4 A call out fee of at least £75 will be charged if the fault / malfunction caused to the system has been made by the user and not a defective part / installation. For example, if an engineer attends to assess a ‘no video’ issue that has been caused by the customer accidentally or otherwise cutting, or disturbing the installation cables / components, a fee will be chargeable. If upon investigation there is a faulty part this will be repaired or replaced with no fee payable within the warranty period.
6.5 If your system is older than 12 months, but less than 35 months – you are required to order a warranty callout package to cover the RMA procedure.
