Repair of products under warranty.
All products returned for repair within the warranty period will be repaired or exchanged free of charge provided:
- The product(s) are returned to Company within the warranty period.
- Provided that on ZKTeco’s inspection of returned products that the defect is not a result of accident, misuse, neglect, alteration, water damage, lightning damage, voltage surge damage or other improper use.
Non-warranty repair or exchange of products.
Products returned for repair are only available for devices which are still in production, but not for the discontinued products and provided that the cost of repair does not exceed the cost of replacement. In the case where a product cannot be repaired it will be returned to the customer at their expense detailing the reasons for this action. For repairs outside of warranty a standard minimum booking charge per unit will be levied as set forth in the price schedule contained in this document. The ZKTeco staff will send the customer a quotation on the cost of the parts that need to be replaced and then will seek written authorization and a purchase order number to proceed with the repair prior to the repair being completed.
Procedure for returning products for repair.
Prior to returning any product for a repair, the customer must complete a Repair Fault Report obtained from ZKTeco or a self-generated fault report from the customer themselves. The Company will not accept the return of any product for a repair without this form. This form must contain a detailed explanation of the fault including the circumstances and environment the fault occurred in. An extra fault-finding charge will be levied if the “Repair Fault Report” form is not submitted with the repairs.
The hardware product must be couriered to and from the ZKTeco office and the shipping cost must be pre-paid and is not the responsibility of ZKTeco.
The customer should ensure that the consignment is correctly insured whilst in transit to the ZKTeco offices. ZKTeco assumes no liability for loss or damages to a product during transit.
Products returned for repair or exchange will be upgraded to the latest product build revision unless otherwise previously agreed upon in writing. The Company reserves the right to refuse to repair or exchange any product that has been modified in any way from the original product specification. ZKTeco shall not be responsible for damages or loss of data contained in the product, which has been added by the customer to a product returned for repair.
Charges for repair
As previously mentioned, if charges are applicable, the customer must submit a purchase order number that accompanies the signed quotation sent by the ZKTeco staff for the applicable repairs. The customer must prepay all shipment charges to and from the ZKTeco offices, including insurance charges.

To obtain warranty service, Distributor must provide to Dahua within the applicable warranty period (a) a valid form of bill of sale or receipt substantiating the fact and date of sale to Dealer, and (b) shipping documentation or records to substantiate the date of shipment to Dealer (or its designee).

Distributor must initiate all warranty claims using Dahua’s the RMA process set out below.
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.
Non-Transferable. This Limited Hardware Warranty is specific to the Distributor and may not be transferred or assigned. Any attempted transfer or assignment will be null and void and will not be recognized by Dahua.
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.
Disclaimers. THIS LIMITED HARDWARE WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WRITTEN OR ORAL, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE PRECEDING SENTENCE, DAHUA MAKES NO CLAIMS, AND DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WRITTEN OR ORAL, WITH RESPECT TO ANY PRODUCT’S ABILITY OR EFFECTIVENESS IN PREVENTING OR REDUCING THE RISK OF, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR LOSS, THEFT, PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.

THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF DAHUA AND ITS AFFILIATES FOR ALL CLAIMS UNDER THIS LIMITED HARDWARE WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE PRICE PAID BY DISTRIBUTOR FOR THE RELEVANT PRODUCT.
THE PRECEDING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS WERE AN ESSENTIAL CONDITION IN SETTING PRODUCT PRICE. Some jurisdictions do not allow exclusion or limitation of implied warranties, limitation of incidental or consequential damages for certain consumer products, or limitation of liability for personal injury. To the extent such restrictions apply, the above limitations and exclusions will be applied to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
OTC (Over-the-Counter) Exchange Policy
During the first year of eligible warranty service for any defective Product, Dahua authorizes Distributor, in lieu of submitting the Product for warranty service, to take back the defective Product and provide Customer with a new “over-the-counter” same-model replacement (or if discontinued and unavailable, a materially equivalent model) from Distributor’s inventory. Distributor will receive a credit for the replacement; provided, that (a) Distributor requests the credit through the RMA process within the one-year exchange period, (b) Distributor returns the defective Product to Dahua within thirty (30) days of requesting the credit, and (c) Dahua, in its sole discretion, confirms the returned Product is actually defective (non-defective Products will be returned to Distributor). Distributor will use any issued credit to place an offsetting order to replenish its inventory. Note that the one-year exchange period runs concurrently with any applicable warranty period.
90-Day “No Questions Asked” Return Policy
Any Product resold by Distributor to a Dealer in a good faith transaction where the Product is returned to Distributor within ninety (90) days of purchase may be returned “no questions asked” to Dahua for a credit equal to the Product purchase price originally paid by Distributor. A credit will only be issued if Distributor requests the credit through the RMA process within the ninety (90) day return period and returns the Product to Dahua within thirty (30) days of requesting the credit. Note that the ninety (90) day return period runs concurrently with any applicable warranty period.
RMA Return Process
Step 1: Obtaining an RMA Number
Before Distributor submits a Product to Dahua for service or repair, Distributor must obtain an RMA number. Distributor may obtain an RMA number one of two ways:
Distributor may visit http://rmaus.dahuasecurity.com/ and fill out the online RMA Request Form. Distributor will need login credentials to access the website. If Distributor does not have login credentials, Distributor should contact its Dahua sales representative. Once the online RMA Request Form is submitted, an RMA number will be automatically generated.
Distributor may alternatively send an email to email@example.com and request a copy of the RMA Request Form. Distributor must complete the form and return it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an RMA number (typically within one business day).
Please note that Dahua may require additional information in order to process certain returns. Also note that RMA numbers expire ninety (90) days after issuance. If an RMA number has expired, a new RMA number will need to be obtained.
Step 2: Shipping Back the Product
After obtaining an RMA number, Distributor will need to ship back the Product to Dahua. Any Product returned to Dahua must be properly packaged in its original packaging (or packaging providing the Product with protection equivalent to the original packaging) and sent via a reputable courier with package tracking services to the address communicated to Distributor in the RMA process. The RMA number must be clearly marked on the outside of the return shipment package. If the return shipment contains multiple packages, the RMA number must be clearly marked on the outside of each package. Distributor will be responsible for all shipping and handling costs for Product shipments to Dahua under any of the above warranties or return/exchange policies.
Step 3: Relax
Distributor will be notified of Dahua’s receipt of the Product, and Dahua will provide Distributor with regular status updates as to the repair progress. After repairs are completed, Dahua will ship the Product (or, as applicable, a replacement) back to Distributor. Dahua will be responsible for all shipping and handling costs for any shipments of repaired or replacement in-warranty Products to Distributor (or its designee). Dahua will provide Distributor with the shipment date and any tracking numbers. In certain situations a repair may not be possible, in which case Distributor will be promptly notified and provided with alternative options.
Dahua provides limited repair services for out-of-warranty and warranty-ineligible Products. Distributor may ship any such Product to Dahua and request a non-binding estimate for the cost of repair. Repair services will only be commenced upon Distributor’s authorization. If Distributor declines repair or does not provide authorization within fifteen (15) days from the date Dahua provides the estimate, Dahua will return ship the Product to Distributor, at Distributor’s expense. Distributor will be responsible for the actual cost of any authorized repair, including, without limitation, labor, components, and testing. Distributor will also be responsible for all applicable taxes and in- and outbound shipping and handling expenses. Dahua will suspend repair work and notify Distributor if Dahua determines that the actual repair cost will materially exceed the estimate, and in such case, repair work shall only resume upon Distributor’s authorization.
