IMPORTANT!
PROPER INTRUSION PROTECTION
For proper intrusion coverage, sensors should be located at every possible
point of entry to a home or commercial premises. This would include any
skylights that may be present, and the upper windows in a multi-level building.
In addition, we recommend that radio backup be used in a security system so
that alarm signals can still be sent to the Central Monitoring Station in the event
that the telephone lines are out of order (alarm signals are normally sent over
the phone lines).
EARLY WARNING FIRE DETECTION
Early warning fire detection is important in a home. Smoke and heat detectors
have played a key role in reducing fire deaths in the United States. With regard
to the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors, we subscribe to the
recommendations contained in the National Fire Protection Association's
National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72). These recommendations can be found on
page 43 of this manual.

This manual is a step-by-step guide that will acquaint you with the system's
features and benefits. It defines the components and their functions, describes
their operation, and provides clear step-by-step instructions for normal and
emergency procedures. Keep this manual in a convenient place so that you can
refer to it as necessary.

,QWURGXFWLRQ
Congratulations on your ownership of a First Alert Professional Security System. You've
made a wise decision in choosing it, for it represents the latest in security protection
technology today. This system provides:
• Three forms of protection: burglary, fire* and emergency
• At least one keypad which provides control of system and displays system status
• Various sensors for perimeter and interior burglary protection
• Smoke or combustion detectors* designed to provide early warning in case of fire.
Your system may also have been programmed to automatically send alarm or status
messages over the phone lines to a Central Monitoring Station.
* Commercial installations and some residential systems may not include fire
protection – check with your installer.
NOTE: The features and procedures described in this manual apply to both the
FA168C and FA148CP security systems. Differences are noted where applicable.
6\VWHP%DVLFV
Burglary Protection
• Several modes of burglary protection: Stay, Night-Stay, Away, Instant, Maximum.
STAY: arms perimeter zones only and entry delay is on
INSTANT: same as STAY, except entry delay is off
NIGHT-STAY: arms perimeter zones and selected interior zones; entry delay on
AWAY: arms perimeter and all interior zones, entry delay is on
MAXIMUM: same as AWAY, except entry delay is off
• You can BYPASS selected zones while leaving the rest of the system armed.
• CHIME mode alerts you to the opening of protected doors and windows while the
system is disarmed.
Fire Protection
• Fire protection is always active (if installed) and an alarm sounds if a fire
condition is detected
• If necessary, you can manually initiate a fire alarm using the keypad (if
programmed).
• Refer to the Fire Alarm System section for information regarding fire protection,
smoke detectors and planning emergency exit routes.
Security Codes
• You were assigned a 4-digit security code during system installation.
• Use your security code when arming and disarming the system, and when
performing other system functions.
• Other users can be assigned different security codes, each with different
authority levels, which define the system functions a particular user can perform.
–5–
6\VWHP2YHUYLHZ&RQWLQXHG
Zones and Partitions
• The system sensing devices have been assigned to various “zones,” which are
specific areas of protection (e.g., front door, kitchen window, etc.).
• Zone numbers are displayed at the keypad when an alarm or trouble condition
occurs on a sensor.
• Partitions (FA168C) provide two independent areas of protection, with each
partition containing a group of zones that can be armed and disarmed without
affecting other zones or users.
• Partitioned systems (FA168C) can include a common zone area, which is an area
shared by users of both partitions (such as a lobby in a building).
Arming, Step-Arming and Disarming Burglary Protection
• The system must be armed before the burglary protection can sense intrusions.
• To arm your system, enter your user code followed by the desired arming key.
• If programmed, the [#] key can be pressed instead of entering the security code
when arming the system.
• You can also use the step-arming key, if programmed, to arm the system, which
lets you use a function key to arm the system in one of three modes by simply
pressing the key repeatedly.
• To disarm the system, enter your user code then press the [OFF] key.
Alarms
• When an alarm occurs, both the keypad and external sounders will sound, and
the keypad will display the zone(s) causing the alarm.
• If your system is connected to a Central Monitoring Station, an alarm message
will also be sent.
• To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system.
Memory of Alarm
• When an alarm condition occurs, the keypad displays the number(s) of the
zone(s) that caused the problem, and displays the type of alarm.
• The message remains displayed even after disarming the system, but can be
cleared with another “off” sequence.
–6–
6\VWHP2YHUYLHZ&RQWLQXHG
Phone Access
• If included, a phone module permits you to access the system via a touch-tone
phone, either on-premises or by calling-in when away.
• You can receive synthesized voice messages over the telephone regarding the
status of the security system.
• You can arm and disarm the system and perform most function commands
remotely via the telephone, with voice confirmation provided after each command
entry.
• Complete information regarding the use of this feature is provided in a separate
manual entitled “Phone Access User's Guide” that is supplied with the voice
module.
Paging Feature
• If programmed, the system can automatically send certain system condition
messages to up to four (FA168C) or two (FA148CP) pagers.
• The display consists of code numbers that indicate the type of condition that has
occurred.
Function Keys
• The “A”, “B”, “C”, and “D” keys on the keypad can be programmed to perform
various functions.
• Functions include: activate a Panic alarm; arm the system; provide step arming;
switch lights on/off; send a message to a pager; display Time/Date; start a Macro
Scheduling
• Your system can be programmed to automatically perform certain functions (e.g.,
arm the system) at a predetermined time each day.

$ERXW7KH.H\SDGV
*HQHUDO,QIRUPDWLRQ
Your keypads allow you to control all system functions. The keypads feature the
following:
• A telephone style (digital) keypad
• Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) which shows the nature and location of all
occurrences
• Built-in sounder which will sound during alarms and troubles. The sounder also
"beeps" during certain system functions and when depressing any of the keys (to
acknowledge the key press).
• Backlighting of the LCD display windows. Backlighting turns on when entering the
premises through any assigned entry/exit door, or when any key is pressed. This
feature is helpful when a keypad is located in a dimly lit area.
IMPORTANT: If the keypad beeps rapidly upon entering the premises, it indicates
that an alarm has occurred during your absence and an intruder may still be on the
premises. LEAVE IMMEDIATELY and CONTACT THE POLICE from a nearby safe
location.
There are two basic types of keypads which are functionally the same, but they have
different types of displays.
Alpha Display
2-line alpha display keypads feature a 2-line, 32-character
alphanumeric LCD which can display system messages in
friendly English. These keypads can also be programmed with
custom zone descriptors.
Fixed-Word Display Fixed-Word display keypads are functionally identical to Alpha
display keypads, but the LCD display uses pre-designated words
to identify the nature and location of occurrences.

IMPORTANT!
• When entering codes and commands, sequential key depressions must be made
within 4-5 seconds of one another. If 4-5 seconds elapse without a key depression, the
entry will be aborted and must be repeated from its beginning. Be sure to observe
this precaution when performing any of the procedures in this manual.
• If you make a mistake while entering a security code, stop, press the [✱] key, and
then start over. If you stop in the middle while entering a code, and then
immediately start the entry over, an erroneous code might be entered.

(QWU\([LW'HOD\V
Your system has preset time delays, known as exit delay and entry delay.
([LW'HOD\
Exit delay gives you time to leave through the designated exit door without setting
off an alarm. Exit delay begins immediately after arming your system in any
arming mode and Alpha Display keypads display the message “You May Exit Now.”
When “You may exit now” disappears, the system is fully armed. If programmed, a slow
beeping will sound during the exit delay period until the last 5 seconds, which then
changes to fast beeping (alerting you to the end of exit delay). If you cannot leave by
this time, you should stop, disarm the system, and start over to avoid a false alarm.
Exit Delay Restart. If you wish to open the entry/exit door to let someone in after arming
STAY, you can re-start the exit delay at any time – simply press the [✱] key, then let that
person in. The system automatically re-arms when exit delay expires, which avoids having to
disarm the system and then re-arm it again. In addition, when the system is armed AWAY,
re-entering the premises (e.g., forgot a wallet) through the entry/exit door before exit delay
time expires will reset the exit delay time.
(QWU\'HOD\
Entry Delays give you time to disarm the system when you re-enter through the
designated entrance door. You must disarm the system before the entry delay period
ends, or an alarm will occur. The keypad beeps during the entry delay period,
reminding you to disarm the system. There are two entry delays (if programmed). The
first is for your primary entrance and the second can be used for a secondary entrance,
where a longer delay is required to walk to the keypad to disarm the system.
You can also arm the system with no entry delay at all by using the INSTANT or
MAXIMUM arming mode. This mode provides greater security while on the
premises or while away for extended periods of time.
See your installer for your delay times.

Whenever you arm the system, the exit delay begins. If an entry/exit door or interior
zone is faulted when the exit delay ends (e.g., exit door left open), the system sounds
an alarm and starts the entry delay timer. If you disarm the system before the entry
delay ends, the alarm sound stops and the message "CANCELED ALARM" or "CA" is
displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number indicating the faulted zone. No
message is sent to the Central Monitoring Station.
To clear the exit alarm condition, the open zone must be made intact; to clear the
display, enter your code plus OFF.
If you do not disarm the system before the entry delay ends, and an entry/exit door or
interior zone is still open, the alarm sound continues and an "exit alarm" message is
sent to the Central Monitoring Station. The message ""EXIT ALARM" or "EA" is
displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number indicating the faulted zone. To
stop the alarm, the system must be disarmed (your code plus OFF); to clear the
display, enter your code plus OFF a second time.
An “exit alarm” also results if an entry/exit door or interior zone is faulted within two
minutes after the end of the exit delay.
Your system may have been programmed for this feature to minimize false alarms sent to the Central
Monitoring Station. Ask your installer if "Exit Alarm" is active in your system. If so, check this box.

Use this key when you want to arm your system with one or more zones intentionally
unprotected.
Vent Zones: Your system may have certain windows set as “vent” zones, which are
automatically bypassed if left open when arming the system (you do not need to
manually bypass them). However, if a vent zone window is closed after arming, it
becomes protected and will cause an alarm if opened again while the system is armed.
When bypassing zones:
• The system must be disarmed before you can bypass zones.
• Bypassed zones are unprotected and will not cause an alarm if violated.
• The system will not allow fire zones to be bypassed.
• Zones are automatically unbypassed when the system is disarmed.

Your system may be set up to automatically send alert messages to several pagers (up
to four for FA168C, up to two for FA148CP) as certain conditions occur in your system.
• The following events can be programmed by your installer to be sent to the pagers:
arming and disarming†, alarms, and trouble conditions. († reports when
arming/disarming from a keypad using a security code; auto-arming/disarming,
arming with assigned button, and keyswitch arming do not send pager messages.)
• You can also program the system to send an automatic pager message to alert you
in the event that someone has not arrived home (disarmed the system) within a
defined period of time (see the Scheduling section for details on programming a
“latch key report”).
• Your installer programs the pager phone numbers and reporting events.
• The pager message consists of a 7-digit system status code that indicates the type of
condition that has occurred.
• An optional, predefined 16-digit character string can precede the 7-digit system
status code; these characters can consist of a PIN no., subscriber account no., or any
additional data that you may wish to have sent to the pager.

C=
A 4-digit User or Zone number, depending on the type of
event that has occurred, where:
• alarms and troubles display zone number
• arming/disarming (opens/closes) display user number
The first 2 digits are always “00” (e.g., 0004 represents
zone or user number 4), and, single-digit user or zone
numbers are always preceded by a zero.
The 3-digit Event Codes (BBB) that can be displayed are:

Your installer assigned a master code that is used to perform all system functions.
In addition, you can assign different security codes for use by other users (FA168C
provides 46 additional codes; FA148CP provides 30 additional codes).
• Only the System Master and Partition Master can assign user codes to users.
• Users are identified by 2-digit user numbers and are pre-assigned to either
partition 1 or partition 2 (FA168C).
• Only the Installer or System Master can change user partitions.
• In addition to a security code, each user is assigned various system attributes.
• User codes can be used interchangeably within a partition when performing system
functions (a system armed with one user's code can be disarmed by another user's
code), with the exception of the guest code described below.
• User code programming involves these steps:
1. Choose a user number from the set of users assigned to the partition in which
the user will be operating, and assign a 4-digit security code.
2. Assign an authority level to that user.
3. Assign other attributes as necessary (see attributes on the next page).
NOTE: The factory settings are designed to meet most normal user situations.
Therefore, the only step you usually need to do when adding users is assign a user
number (from the partition’s pre-assigned user numbers) and a security code.

• The system arms only if all partitions are “ready to arm.”
• If any partition is “not ready,” the system does not arm at all.
• You can use the GOTO command to bypass open zones before arming.
• If any partition is already armed when global arming is attempted, that
partition remains in its existing armed state.

Ask your installer if a
"common zone" was
assigned. If so, check
this box
Your system may have been set up to use a common zone, which is
an area shared by users of both partitions, such as a foyer or lobby.
If so, please note the following:
• The common zone will sound and report alarms only when both
partitions are armed. If only one partition is armed, the system
ignores faults on the common zone.
• Either partition may arm its system if the common zone is
faulted, but once armed, the other partition will not be able to
arm unless the common zone is first bypassed or the fault is
corrected.
• Faults on the common zone are displayed on common zone
keypads, and will also appear on another partition’s keypad when
that partition is armed.
• Either partition can clear and restore the common zone after an
alarm.
• Entry/exit time for the common zone is the same as for partition 1.

Taking Care of
Your System
The components of your security system are designed to be as
maintenance-free as possible. However, to make sure that your system
is in reliable working condition, do the following:
1. Test your system weekly.
2. Test your system after any alarm occurs.
Silencing Low
Battery Warning
Tones at the
Keypad
You can silence the keypad’s warning tones by pressing the OFF key,
but the keypad's low battery message display will remain on as a
reminder that you have a low battery condition in one or more of your
wireless sensors. When you replace the weak battery with a fresh one,
the sensor sends a "good battery" signal to the control as soon as the
sensor is activated (opening/closing of door, window, etc.), causing the
low battery display to turn off. If the sensor is not activated, the display
will automatically clear within approximately 1 hour.
Replacing
Batteries in
Wireless Sensors
Each wireless sensor in your system has a 9-volt or 3-volt battery. The
system detects a low battery in wireless sensors, including smoke
detectors, the personal emergency transmitter, and the portable
wireless keypad and displays a low battery message*. (A low battery in
a portable wireless keypad is detected as soon as one of its keys is
pressed, and displayed as 00.). Battery-operated smoke detectors with
a low battery also emit a single "chirp" sound approximately once
every 20–30 seconds.
Alkaline batteries provide a minimum of 1 year of operation, and in
most units and applications, provide 2–4 years of service. 3-volt lithium
batteries provide up to 4 or more years of operation. Actual battery life
will depend on the environment in which the sensor is used, the
number of signals that the transmitter in the sensor has had to send,
and the specific type of sensor. Factors such as humidity, high or low
temperatures or large swings in temperature, may all lead to the
reduction of actual battery life in an installation.
Wireless sensors
may not have
been used in your
security system
IMPORTANT:
Use only batteries
recommended by
your installer as
replacement.
* The low battery message comes on as a warning that battery replacement
in indicated sensor(s) is due within 30 days. In the meantime, a sensor
causing a low battery indication is still fully operational.
Routine Care • Treat the components of your security system as you would any other
electrical equipment. Do not slam sensor-protected doors or windows.
• Keep dust from accumulating on the keypad and all protective
sensors, particularly on motion sensors and smoke detectors.
• The keypad and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a dry soft
cloth. Do not spray water or any other fluid on the units.

General
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, for
continuous protection. In the event of an emergency, the strategically
located smoke and heat detectors will sound their alarms and
automatically send signals to your system, triggering a loud,
interrupted pulsed sound* from the Keypad(s) and any external
sounders. A FIRE message will appear at your Keypad and remain on
until you silence the alarm (see below for silencing fire alarms).
* Temporal pulse sounding is produced for Fire alarms, as follows:

With regard to the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors, we
subscribe to the recommendations contained in the National Fire Protection
Association's National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72) noted below.
Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire
detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the household as follows: A
smoke detector installed outside of each separate sleeping area, in the
immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each additional story of the
family living unit, including basements and excluding crawl spaces and
unfinished attics.
In addition, the NFPA recommends that you install heat or smoke detectors
in the living room, dining room, bedroom(s), kitchen, hallway(s), attic,
furnace room, utility and storage rooms, basements and attached garages.

Establish and regularly practice a plan of escape in the
event of fire. The following steps are recommended by
the National Fire Protection Association:
1. Position your detector or your interior and/or
exterior sounders so that they can be heard by all
occupants.
2. Determine two means of escape from each room.
One path of escape should lead to the door that
permits normal exit from the building. The other
may be a window, should your path be unpassable.
Station an escape ladder at such windows if there
is a long drop to the ground.
3. Sketch a floor plan of the building. Show windows,
doors, stairs and rooftops that can be used to
escape. Indicate escape routes for each room. Keep
these routes free from obstruction and post copies
of the escape routes in every room.
4. Assure that all bedroom doors are shut while you
are asleep. This will prevent deadly smoke from
entering while you escape.
5. Try the door. If the door is hot, check your
alternate escape route. If the door is cool, open it
cautiously. Be prepared to slam the door if smoke
or heat rushes in.
6. When smoke is present, crawl on the ground. Do
not walk upright, since smoke rises and may
overcome you. Clearer air is near the floor.
7. Escape quickly; don't panic.
8. Establish a common meeting place outdoors, away
from your house, where everyone can meet and
then take steps to contact the authorities and
account for those missing. Choose someone to
assure that nobody returns to the house — many
die going back

WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
While this system is an advanced design security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary or other
emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a
variety of reasons. For example:
• Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm
sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device.
• Intrusion detectors (e.g. passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work
without power. Battery operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are
not put in properly. Devices powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason,
however briefly.
• Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even
if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is moved into
the path.
• A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.
• While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not
activate or provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published
by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this
System may not work are as follows. Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke
detectors may not sense fires that start where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or
roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level of a residence or
building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Moreover, smoke detectors
have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every kind of fire every time. In general, detectors may not
always warn about fires caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping
gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson.
Depending upon the nature of the fire and/or the locations of the smoke detectors, the detector, even if it operates as
anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.
• Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their
installation manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple
beams of protection, and intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot
detect motion or intrusion that takes place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or
windows.
Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, windows or any part of the
optical system can reduce their detection ability. Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however,
as the ambient temperature of protected area approaches the temperature range of 90° to 105°F, the detection
performance can decrease.
• Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located on
the other side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices sound on a different level of the residence from the
bedrooms, then they are less likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may
not hear the warning if the alarm is muffled from a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing
traffic. Finally, alarm warning devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or waken deep sleepers.
• Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of
service or temporarily out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders.
• Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have insufficient time to protect
themselves from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond
appropriately.
• This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed
to last as long as 10 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance.
This alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly.
Installing an alarm system may make one eligible for lower insurance rates, but an alarm system is not a substitute for
insurance. Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and
continue to insure their lives and property.
We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved
ones to learn about these developments.

ONE YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
Pittway Corporation, and its divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates ("Seller"), 165 Eileen Way, Syosset, New
York 11791, warrants its First Alert Professional security equipment (the "product") to be free from defects
in materials and workmanship for one year from date of original purchase, under normal use and service.
Seller's obligation is limited to repairing or replacing, at its option, free of charge for parts, labor, or transportation, any product proven to be defective in materials or workmanship under normal use and service.
Seller shall have no obligation under this warranty or otherwise if the product is altered or improperly
repaired or serviced by anyone other than the Seller. In case of defect, contact the security professional who
installed and maintains your security equipment or the Seller for product repair.
This one year Limited Warranty is in lieu of all other express warranties, obligations or liabilities. THERE
ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES, WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE FACE HEREOF. ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES MADE BY SELLER IN CONNECTION WITH THIS
PRODUCT, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR
A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE, ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO A PERIOD OF ONE
YEAR FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL PURCHASE. ANY ACTION FOR BREACH OF ANY
WARRANTY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY, MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN 12 MONTHS FROM DATE OF ORIGINAL
PURCHASE. IN NO CASE SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL
OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF THIS OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, OR UPON ANY OTHER BASIS OF LIABILITY WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF THE LOSS OR
DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY THE SELLER'S OWN NEGLIGENCE OR FAULT. Some states do not allow
limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Seller does not represent that the product may not be compromised or circumvented; that the product will
prevent any personal injury or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; or that the product will in
all cases provide adequate warning or protection. Buyer understands that a properly installed and maintained
alarm may only reduce the risk of a burglary, robbery, fire or other events occurring without providing an
alarm, 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. CONSEQUENTLY, SELLER SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY
PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR OTHER LOSS BASED ON A CLAIM THE PRODUCT
FAILED TO GIVE WARNING. HOWEVER, IF SELLER IS HELD LIABLE, WHETHER DIRECTLY OR
INDIRECTLY, FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR
OTHERWISE, REGARDLESS OF CAUSE OR ORIGIN, SELLER'S MAXIMUM LIABILITY SHALL
NOT IN ANY CASE EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT, WHICH SHALL BE THE
COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST SELLER. This warranty gives you specific legal
rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. No increase or alteration, written or
verbal, to this warranty is authorized.
