CONNECTED EQUIPMENT PROTECTION WARRANTY
DITEK’s Surge Protective Devices (SPDs), as specified in the table below, include a Residential Connected Equipment Protection Warranty. Commercial and/or Industrial applications are excluded. The warranty covers the original purchaser and is non-transferable. The warranty provides coverage in the event that that a properly installed DITEK surge protective device should fail to protect your connected household equipment from a transient voltage surge or spike. DITEK will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace the damaged connected equipment, up to the dollar limits listed below, provided that all conditions stated within this policy are fully satisfied. The Warranty is intended to cover damage to connected household equipment caused by transient voltage surges and spikes, which enter the equipment via surge-protected wiring. It does not cover damage caused by sustained over-voltage events, such as Utility company voltage swells, transmission line anomalies, open neutral conditions, direct or vicinity lightning strikes.
The Connected Equipment Protection Warranty coverage is secondary to any existing homeowners insurance policies, service contracts, standard warranties and/or extended warranty coverage. If any of the aforementioned warranty coverage or insurance is in place, a claim must be submitted with that provider first before making a claim through the DITEK Connected Equipment Protection Warranty. If the insurance policy or warranty claim is found to be valid, DITEK will pay up to the deductible amount of the insurance policy, service contract or warranty, or the cost to repair or replace the damaged equipment, whichever is less, but shall not exceed the coverage limit.
