In the event of replacement or upon completion of repairs, return shipment will be made with the transportation charges collect.


AtlasIED does not assume, or does it authorize any other person to assume or extend on its behalf, any other warranty, obligation, or liability. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state.

Statement of End User Network Responsibility

AtlasIED provides network based Public Address Systems (PAS) deployed on a wide variety of networks at end user facilities worldwide. As such, a primary factor, directly impacting the reliability of the PAS is a properly configured, reliable, stable network on which the PAS resides/functions.

AtlasIED is not responsible, and thus, shall have no liability, for either (a) the end user’s network requirements, including without limitation, those related to the overall performance, security, and other pertinent network criteria, or (b) the end user’s facility network infrastructure, including without limitation, the hardware and/or software utilized for the network on which the PAS resides. AtlasIED relies solely upon the end user’s network owner/manager for the design, provision, configuration and maintenance of the network, in a manner that enables proper PAS function ability/functionality. If the network on which the PAS resides is improperly designed, configured or maintained, malfunctions or undergoes changes or modifications, then impacts to the reliability, functionality or stability of the PAS can be expected, resulting in PAS system anomalies that are outside the control of AtlasIED. In such instances, AtlasIED can be a resource to support the end user’s network owner/manager in diagnosing the problems and attempting to restore the PAS to a fully functioning and reliable state. However, for network-related issues, AtlasIED may look to the end user to recover costs associated with such support activities. For those end-users covered by either the prevailing IED OEM Limited Warranty and/or an IED Platinum Assurance Plan, and upon request by the end user, AtlasIED will collaborate with all parties (AtlasIED certified Integrators and/or end users) to provide limited assistance with network diagnostics at no additional cost to the end user. The extent and nature of this assistance will be based on the scenario encountered. Under these programs, AtlasIED will solely determine when/if applicable charges for technical support will be applied. Out of warranty end users, and/or those not covered by a Platinum Assurance Plan will be assisted as technical support is available and applicable charges for that technical support will be applied.

AtlasIED will not be liable for any consequences or damages, whether actual, direct, indirect, exemplary, special, consequential, or otherwise, for any end user network upon which a PAS resides/functions that is not properly configured, reliable, and/or stable.

Statement of Responsibility Regarding Windows® OS Updates

The Windows® operating systems on AtlasIED 1100/1200ACS and IP100 Series products are updated at the time of initial installation of the AtlasIED software with the latest AtlasIED approved Windows® updates prior to shipment. The Windows® operating system on 1151 and 1152 server based systems are updated at the time of initial installation of the AtlasIED software with the latest, pertinent Windows® updates available at the time of the initial software installation.

In either case, once the initial installation of AtlasIED software and Windows® updates are complete, Windows® updates are then turned off. Additionally, AtlasIED does not recommend installation of future Windows® updates, unless specifically noted by AtlasIED (AtlasIED will review Windows® updates semi-annually and release the findings and recommendations thereto), to determine if such updates would adversely affect system function. AtlasIED will review Windows® updates semi-annually and release its findings and recommendations thereto. Thus if the owner of AtlasIED system(s) elect to install additional Windows® updates, that owner is responsible for all installation and testing of said updates. In the event that such update(s) cause system functional abnormalities, AtlasIED can provide technical advice and assistance.

AtlasIED will solely determine when/if applicable charges for technical advice and assistance will be applied. Out of warranty end users, and/or those not covered by a Platinum Assurance Plan, will be assisted as technical support is available and applicable charges for that technical support will be applied.
