Authorized Internet Reseller/Integrator Policy

Professional megapixel surveillance cameras are highly technical devices that require substantial product knowledge for the best possible system design, installation, support, and maintenance that our customers deserve.

Arecont Vision Costar Authorized Resellers/Dealers/Internet Sellers/Systems Integrators buy from Authorized Distributors around the world and sell to end user customers. They are required to meet certain training criteria and responsibilities mandated by Arecont Vision Costar to ensure that the vendor is qualified to deliver expertise in Arecont Vision Costar products and services. This includes participating in Arecont Vision Costar University training and AVU’s CPCP courses and being in compliance with the Arecont Vision Costar Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) Policy.

The MAP policy ensures that products sold by are by authorized channels and at fair prices for our customers. Authorized resellers/systems integrators/dealers/internet sellers who have completed these requirements are able to leverage the Arecont Vision Costar partner portal, comprehensive multi-year warranty, advanced RMA replacement program, and online project registration program. Access is also provided to the pre-sales support of Arecont Vision Costar Inside Sales team for sales questions, configuration and design assistance of the Arecont Vision Costar Field Application Engineering team, and support from the award-winning Arecont Vision Costar Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

This protects those companies that have invested the time and resources into becoming and maintaining their authorized status and in being knowledgeable in Arecont Vision Costar products to provide the best products choices to protect our customers. Those selling below the MAP policy price are typically those who are both unauthorized and selling products of questionable providence. Websites, internet resellers, and unauthorized resellers offering prices below MAP policy given warning; failure to adjust prices or comply with the terms and conditions listed above are selling products that are not protected by the Arecont Vision Costar warranty.

Arecont Vision Costar cannot guarantee that products acquired from unauthorized channels are valid, up to date, and genuine Arecont Vision Costar cameras and accessories. Counterfeit, damaged, returned, or cameras assembled from inferior or damaged parts cannot be guaranteed from unauthorized sources and thus cannot be warrantied.
