22. SMOKE DETECTOR AND OTHER WARNINGS. Our electrical smoke detectors are designed to be connected to an electrical power source. THESE SMOKE DECTORS WILL NOT OPERATE, THE ALARM WILL NOT SOUND, AND THE ALARM SIGNAL WILL NOT BE TRANSMITTED, IF THE ELECTRICITY IS CUT OFF AND THE BACKUP BATTERY , IF PART OF THE SYSTEM, IS LOW OR DEAR. If there is any fire, the electricity may cut off before the alarm can function and the alarm will not sound, and the alarm signal will not be transmitted. Connecting these smoke detectors to a separate dedicated electrical circuit increases their reliability. However, even dedicated circuits can fail. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU INSTALL A BATTERY POWERED SMOKE DETECTOR AS A BACKUP SYSTEM. YOU SHOULD REGULARLY INSPECT YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS FOR DIRT AND DUST BUILD-UP AND TEST THEM WEEKLY TO MAINTAIN CONTINUED OPERATION. Smoke detectors can significantly help to reduce loss, injury and death. However, no matter how good any detection device is, nothing works perfectly under every circumstance. WE WARN YOU THAT A SMOKE DETECTOR WILL NOT ENSURE THAT YOU WILL NEVER SUFFER DAMAGE OR INJURY. Our battery-powered motion detectors, smoke detectors, door and window contact transmitters, and other detection sensors, if installed under this Contract, are not connected to the electrical system of your premises. Such detections sensors require batteries to operate. THESE BATTERY POWERED DETECTION SENSORS WILL NOT OPERATE, AND THE ALARM WILL NOT SOUND, IF THE BATTERIEDS ARE LOW OR DEAD. You are responsible for maintaining the batteries. You should regularly inspect such sensors for dirt and dust buildup and test them weekly to help maintain continued operation. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CAREFULLY READ THE OWNER'S MANUAL FOR ALL EQUIPMENT. THE OWNER'S MANUAL CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION SUCH AS OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS AND EQUIPMENT TESTING AND MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES. YOU SHOULD ALSO READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS, WARNINGS AND OTHER INFORMATION ON THE EQUIPMENT ITSELF.
23. COMMUNICATION FACILITIES. A. AUTHORIZATION. You authorize us, on your behalf, to request services, orders or equipment from a telephone company or other company providing signal transmission services or facilities under this Contract (referred to as "Telephone Company"). B. DIGITAL COMMUNICATOR. You understand that a digital communicator, if installed under this Contract, uses standard telephone lines for sending signals which eliminates the need for a dedicated telephone line and the costs associated with such dedicated lines. YOU ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT WE WILL NOT RECEIVE ALARM SIGNALS WHEN THE TELEPHONE LINE OR OTHER TRANSMISSION MODE IS NOT OPERATING OR HAS BEEN CUT, INTERFERED WITH OR IS OTHERWISE DAMAGED, OR WHEN ANY NON-STANDARD TELEPHONE LINE OR SERVICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DSL, ADSL, VOIP, ETC.) IS BEING USED. C. DERIVED LOCAL CHANNEL. The Telephone Company's services provided to you in connection with our services may include Derived Local Channel service. Such service may be provided under the Telephone Company's service marks or service names. These services include providing lines, signal paths, scanning and transmission. You agree that the Telephone Company's liability is limited to the same extent our liability is limited in Paragraphs 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 of this Contract. D. RADIO AND INTERNET INTERFACE. You understand that if your alarm system is connected to our alarm monitoring center by radio frequency or internet connection method there may be times when the system is unable to acquire, transmit or maintain an alarm signal. Such radio frequency and internet methods include cellular or private radio or through an internet communication facility or internet service provider(s). If a radio frequency or internet connection is utilized, we recommend you also use an additional method of communication to connect to our alarm monitoring center.
24. CANCELLATION. We may, at any time, cancel this Contract at our option if : A. Our alarm monitoring center is destroyed or damaged so that it is impractical for us to continue service; B.

You fail to follow our operating instructions for the system; or E. We determine that it is impractical to continue service due to the modification or alteration of your premises after installation. If we cancel for any of the reasons stated immediately above, we will refund any advance payments made for services to be supplied after the date of such termination, less any amounts still due for the installation of the equipment, for services already rendered, and for any other charges due, but we will not be liable for damages or subject to penalty as a result of such termination. We may cancel this Contract with or without notice at our option if: A. You fail to pay any monies when due under this Contract; B. You fail to comply with any other term or condition of this Contract; or C. You fail to maintain your premises in a safe and sanitary condition. If we cancel for any of the reasons stated immediately above, we will not be liable for damages or subject to penalty as a result of such termination. In the event of a default and/or termination of the Contract, we have the right under this Contract to reprogram or disconnect your Equipment so that it no longer communicates with the central station, without notice to you.
