Refund amounts (Coverage)
It is ultimately the user’s responsibility to test their alarm during the ’14 day money-back guarantee’ period and identify any mobile network coverage or signal issues. We use our best endeavors to ascertain if there is adequate coverage at the location where the user resides. Our standard practice before setting up your alarm is to do a coverage check our available carriers networks at the supplied address where the watch will be used and if necessary also ask the purchaser if they personally are aware of any weak signals inside the residence on devices connected to the signal.
If after testing the user believes there is a weak signal then they should contact us via phone or email before the ’14 day period’ expires in order us to investigate the coverage issue. We will try to solve the issue by changing to other of our available providers If after investigating we find the coverage is inadequate and we cannot provide an alternate SIM card and network provider, upon the device being returned we will refund the purchase price less $95 (see above).
