  • Standard Warranty Periods do not apply to moving parts, belts, motors, fans, wiper blades, or removable flash memory in any Product.  The applicable warranty period for these items is one (1) year.

Repair or Replacement.  During the applicable warranty period, Dahua will, in its sole discretion, either (a) repair the defective Product using new or refurbished parts, or (b) provide a same-model replacement (or if discontinued and unavailable, a materially equivalent or better model).  This is Dahua’s sole and exclusive liability under this Limited Hardware Warranty, and Distributor’s sole remedy.  Repaired and replacement Products will be warranted under the terms of this Limited Hardware Warranty for the remainder of the original warranty period or ninety (90) days from the date of shipment to Dealer (or its designee), whichever is longer.  Any replaced product or part becomes Dahua’s property.

Exclusions.  This Limited Hardware Warranty is contingent upon proper warehousing, shipment, and normal use of the Product, and will not apply if (a) the original Product identification markings (trademark, serial number, or model number) have been altered, defaced, or removed; (b) the Product has been modified or altered other than by Dahua; (c) the Product was installed other than in strict accordance with the user manual instructions other than by Dahua; (d) the Product was subject to faulty repair or maintenance other than by Dahua; (e) the Product was used for a purpose for which it was not designed or intended; (f) the Product was subjected to misuse, abuse, or negligence; (g) the Product was subjected to operating conditions (e.g., atmospheric, moisture, or humidity) outside of acceptable conditions specified in the user manual; (h) the Product was subjected to electrical short circuits or transients, accident, fire, flood, or other acts of God; or (i) the Product was purchased by Distributor from a person or entity other than Dahua.   This Limited Hardware Warranty does not apply to demonstration Products and certain incentive- or specially-priced Products, all of which are sold or provided by Dahua “AS IS” without any warranty.  This Limited Hardware Warranty does not include, and Dahua does not provide, any data recovery services.  DAHUA STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT DEALERS OR END USERS BACK UP PRODUCT DATA PRIOR TO SUBMITTING ANY PRODUCT FOR WARRANTY SERVICE, AND DISTRIBUTOR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMMUNCATING THIS RECOMMENDATION TO DEALERS AND END USERS.

No Software or Consumables Warranty.  This Limited Hardware Warranty does not extend to firmware or software accompanying, included with, or embedded in the Products (“Software”) or consumables, including, without limitation, fuses and batteries.  ALL SOFTWARE AND CONSUMABLES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” DAHUA DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY SOFTWARE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION.

Hanwha Techwin America (HTA) warrants to the original purchaser that HTA’s products (the “Products”) are free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of three (3) years from the date of original purchase, unless a different period is otherwise expressly stated below (the “Warranty Period”). HTA’s obligation under this warranty is expressly limited to supplying replacement parts, repairing, or replacing, at its sole option, any product which HTA, in its sole judgment and discretion, determines contained a defect in materials or workmanship at the time of shipment from HTA. This warranty does not include on-site service or removal and re-installation costs. This warranty is valid only on HTA products and is subject to the limitations and exceptions listed below.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE, IS HTA’s ONLY WARRANTY, AND IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. HTA HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY BE IMPLIED BY LAW, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, AND OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR SPECIFIED USE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, HTA, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AND PARENTS SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF HTA OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY LIABILITY (i) FOR LOST REVENUES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, THE COST OF DATA RECOVERY FROM HARD DISK DRIVES, THE VALUE OF DATA THAT CANNOT BE RECOVERED FROM HARD DISK DRIVES, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL LOSSES OF ANY TYPE; (ii) FOR INJURY TO OR DEATH OF ANY PERSONS IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS; AND (iii) LIABILITY WHICH YOU HAVE TO ANY OTHER PERSON, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER SUCH LIABILITIES WOULD OTHERWISE ARISE FROM HTATUTE, NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE. ALL RIGHTS GRANTED TO YOU UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY ARE CONDITIONED UPON AND SHALL ONLY ARISE IF THEY ARE EXERCISED IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED BELOW, AND ARE LIMITED TO THE ONE, SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT, AS SPECIFIED HEREIN.

If any person or entity other than HTA repairs or replaces parts on the Products without the prior written consent of HTA, this limited warranty shall be void with respect to the part or component of the Products so repaired or replaced, and with respect to any other part or component related thereto.

For a warranty claim to be valid, you must give full and reasonable written notice to HTA of the defect within thirty (30) days of your discovery of the defect, but in no event later than the last day of the Warranty Period. On receipt of any such written notice, HTA will, as soon as reasonably practicable, cause to be repaired (or, at the sole option of HTA, have replaced) the defect(s) identified by the notice. HTA’s SOLE RESPONSIBILITY IS TO REPAIR OR REPLACE SUCH DEFECTIVE ITEMS OF WHICH HTA SHALL HAVE RECEIVED TIMELY AND PROPER NOTICE AS PROVIDED HEREIN. ALL REPAIRS PERFORMED BY HTA AND ALL REPLACEMENT OF PARTS BY HTA SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED HEREIN AND THE SAME DISCLAIMERS OF OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE DISCLAIMER OF ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR SPECIFIED USE AND THE DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER: malfunction, defect, failure, or damage (i) caused by or resulting from impact, mishandling, tampering, or use contrary to the applicable instruction manual; (ii) arising from ordinary wear and tear, wind, fires, storm, earthquake, incorrect power line voltage, inadequate or improper lighting, adverse weather conditions or other acts of God or nature, your or operators abuse or neglect, misuse, accident or mishap; (iii) arising from shipping; (iv) arising from work, repairs or alterations performed by others than HTA; (v) routine cleaning, normal cosmetic and mechanical wear and tear; and/or (vi) parts or accessories manufactured by persons other than HTA and warranted by such persons.
