Extended warranty doesn’t apply for lower domes or back boxes, with the exception of the Spectra 7 Extended Warranty with up to 36 months.

D. PELCO PRODUCT RETURN, REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT POLICY

In the case of logistic, technical, or commercial claims, please contact Pelco at +1 (800) 2899100 or +1 (559) 2921981. All claims must be accompanied by the RMA number, which must be clearly displayed on the outside of the box. Non-compliance to this policy will result in shipment returned to sender.

Products must be returned within 30 days of RMA issuance. The goods must be free of apparent damage due to rough and/​or improper handling. Failure to comply can result in the product being returned to the sender, or a restocking fee may be applied. A credit will only be issued after Pelco receives and evaluates the outcome.

Should a technical failure occur (Failed after Install or Dead on Arrival), Pelco will replace the product within three months of the invoice at no charge, once Dead on Arrival or Failed After A Pelco Authorized Service Center confirms install status. The customer is responsible for inbound freight to Pelco in such instances. Pelco reserves the right to ship service/​refurbished stock as replacements for defective material.

All merchandise returned outside of the technical failure policy will be processed as a repair only. Goods returned for repair should be clearly identified with the assigned RMA number, and freight should be prepaid. The repaired product will be sent back to the customer with freight paid by Pelco.

ADVANCED REPLACEMENTS

Pelco may, at its discretion, replace any product in advance that is possibly defective, as long as such product is within-warranty (i.e. replacement may be completed prior to the product being physically returned to or inspected by Pelco). Once Pelco receives the product, Pelco will conduct a physical assessment of the product and provide confirmation of the return status.

If an advance replacement product is shipped to the Returning Party prior to the Returning Party’s shipment of the original product to Pelco, and Pelco does not receive the original product from the Returning Party within 30 days of shipping the advance replacement product, the Returning Party will be invoiced for the full price of the advance replacement product at the Returning Party’s standard contracted price.

If the returned product is determined by Pelco, at its discretion, to:

i. have no faults or defects, the Returning Party will be invoiced for 40% of the standard contracted price for the advance replacement product (if an advanced replacement product has already been shipped); or

ii. be defective or damaged in a manner that is not covered by the Pelco Limited Warranty, the Returning Party will be invoiced for up to a maximum of 50% of the current MSRP price for the advance replacement product (if an advanced replacement product has already been shipped).

In either case above, the original product will not be returned by Pelco to the Returning Party.

For any advance replacement product, the balance of the warranty of the original product will continue to apply.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for greater certainty, Pelco Explosion Protected Cameras and related accessories do not qualify for advance replacement, and Pelco will not process replacements until Pelco has received such products and made the appropriate assessments.

E. PRODUCT LICENSING

All software licenses for VideoXpert, Digital Sentry, and Endura systems may be transferred to a new physical (or virtual VM”) system a maximum of one (1) time to allow a customer to replace aging or failing hardware. Any exception to this rule is at the sole discretion of Pelco Technical Support for the purpose of a catastrophic system failure only. Any abuse is strictly prohibited and may result in the suspension of your account or support services.
