You acknowledge that you cannot use the Products and the Software for any emergency unless you use third party security services, as AJAX is not a security company, and the functionality of the Products and the Software is limited only to monitoring the premises where the Products are installed.

AJAX’s liability shall be limited to repairing, replacing, or refunding the purchase price of the Product (at AJAX’s discretion), which, in turn, must not conflict with local consumer protection laws.
