Seller does not represent that the products it sells may not be compromised or circumvented; that the products will prevent any personal injury or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; or that the products will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection.

SECURITY PRODUCTS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Customer understands that properly installed and maintained security devices may only reduce the risk of a burglary, robbery or fire without warning, but it is not insurance or a guarantee that such will not occur or that there will be no personal injury or property loss as a result.
