What is excluded from the warranty?
The warranty is related to manufacturing defects in material and workmanship only, and does not cover damage caused by extreme temperatures, vibrations or shocks, liquids, incorrect handling, accidental damage, unauthorized repairs, thermal or battery induced corrosion and damage caused by wear-and-tear.

Our manufacturer’s warranty does not affect your statutory rights. If the device is defective, you are entitled to the statutory rights in addition to the warranty against the dealer/retailer from whom you purchased the device from, regardless of whether the warranty claim occurs or not.

What to do before making a claim
Please be sure to follow the advices as detailed below:
Did you follow the instructions in the manual correctly? If you misplaced or lost your instruction manual, you can download or print a copy directly from downloads.
Make sure that all devices use correct and sufficiently charged batteries. For radio-controlled devices, please do not use rechargeable batteries. These generally have a lower voltage than regular 1.5V batteries (recommended type: alkaline). Due to the lower voltage (usually only 1.2V for rechargeable batteries) only a limited radio performance is possible.
What should I note for products with radio-controlled signal?
In the case of loss of the radio signal, restart the transmitter and receiver by removing the batteries of both devices, then replacing them after a brief period, (or as described in your instruction manual). During setup, both devices should stand side by side at a distance of approx. 1 meter from each other. After reception, observe the devices next to each other for some time to ensure a permanent radio contact.
If the radio signal is lost again at the place of installation, choose another location for the transmitter and / or receiver. To improve the radio contact, avoid possible interference sources such as other electronic equipment with radio transmission, electromagnetic interference, metal parts, etc.
Nota bene: The specified maximum range is based on open field conditions and can be significantly reduced by obstacles such as reinforced concrete, masonry, windows, etc., other sources of interference and weak batteries.
