RemoteLock Installation Services Agreement

Last updated on April 20, 2022. 

This Installation Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between LockState Inc. dba RemoteLock (“RemoteLock”), and the individual or entity (the “Customer”) signing or otherwise accepting any order form or similar document (“Order Form”) that references this Agreement and describes the installation services to be performed (the “Installation Services”). This Agreement is effective as of Customer’s execution and RemoteLock’s acceptance of the Order Form referencing this Agreement (the “Effective Date”).  If the individual accepting this Agreement is accepting on behalf of a legal entity, such individual represents that they have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to this Agreement, in which case the term “Customer” shall refer to the entity and its affiliates.

Installation Services.

The Installation Services will be provided on a time and materials basis unless otherwise set forth in the Order Form. Customer shall reimburse RemoteLock for approved expenses reasonably incurred in the performance of Installation Services. RemoteLock shall provide reasonable documentation of such expenses upon Customer’s request.  RemoteLock may provide the Installation Services through its third-party subcontractors but, in all such cases, RemoteLock will remain responsible for such subcontractors’ performance.  For the avoidance of doubt, all of Customer’s duties and obligations set forth herein with respect to the actual performance of the Installation Services, including, without limitation, duties and obligations relating to safety and cooperation shall also apply with respect to subcontractors to the extent subcontractors perform the Installation Services.  The parties may make changes to the scope and/or cost of the Installation Services by executing a “Change Order” setting forth such changes.  For the avoidance of doubt, this Agreement is limited to Installation Services and does not convey any right to any other RemoteLock services and/or products, including the RemoteLock Access Control Services.  Customer acknowledges that Customer’s obligations set forth herein are not contingent on the provision and/or availability of other RemoteLock services and/or products or the features thereof.

The Installation Services shall be performed at the location identified in the Order Form (the “Premises”).  Customer shall be solely responsible for obtaining the authorization and/or rights for Installation Services to be performed at any Premises.

The Installation Services do not include the disposal of existing access control equipment previously installed and replaced.  RemoteLock may be required to drill holes, insert nails, screws, brackets or cut into walls, ceilings and other building materials in a reasonable manner to perform the Installation Services and Customer agrees that RemoteLock may do so.  RemoteLock shall clean construction messes or debris but is not responsible for repairing or restoring any damage reasonably incurred in connection with the Installation Services, or repainting or redecorating the Premises. RemoteLock installers are not aware of hidden pipes, wires or other objects within walls, floors, ceilings, or other concealed spaces and, therefore, Customer must advise RemoteLock of such hidden objects before the start of Installation Services. At all times during the performance of Installation Services, it is Customer’s responsibility to make the Premises available to RemoteLock, including notifying and making appropriate plans with any owner, landlord, tenant or other persons.  RemoteLock may require the non-technical assistance of one or more staff member(s) of Customer to perform the Installation Services (for such purposes as moving furniture, personal items of Customer, providing access, etc.), and Customer agrees to provide staff member(s) as so required.

Reliance on Customer Information.

To the extent that Customer has provided information to RemoteLock to help determine the cost, feasibility, scope, timeline or any other aspect of the Installation Services, Customer hereby represents that such information is accurate and complete.  To the extent that such information is inaccurate and/or additional information that RemoteLock could not have reasonably discovered before the Effective Date is discovered and such inaccuracy or new information materially impacts the cost, feasibility, scope, timeline or any other aspect of the Installation Services, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to execute a Change Order to address such material impact.  If the parties are unable to agree upon such Change Order within a reasonable amount of time, which shall be determined in RemoteLock’s sole discretion, RemoteLock may terminate this Agreement and Customer shall owe RemoteLock the Fees for work performed as of the date of termination.

Customer Cooperation.

Customer will reasonably cooperate with RemoteLock to facilitate the performance of the Installation Services which shall include, but not be limited to, the following: (i) assigning a project manager with the requisite skills and training to serve as Customer’s primary point of contact; (ii) allocating sufficient resources to ensure Customer’s ability to meet its obligations; and (iii) providing RemoteLock with, or access to, such facilities, equipment and support as are reasonably necessary for RemoteLock to provide the Installation Services.  RemoteLock shall have no liability in connection with the Installation Services to the extent Customer fails to fully comply with this Section.

Hazardous Conditions. 

Customer represents that there is no (i) Permit Confined Spaces as defined by OSHA which RemoteLock will be required to access or enter; (ii) elevated risk of infectious disease anywhere within the Premises where work will be performed by RemoteLock; (iii) need for air monitoring, respiratory protection, or other medical risk, or (iv) asbestos containing material, formaldehyde or other potentially toxic or hazardous material contained in, on or around the surface of the floors, walls, ceilings, insulation or other structural components where work will be performed by RemoteLock (“Hazardous Conditions”). If Hazardous Conditions are encountered, RemoteLock shall have no obligation to perform work in an affected area until the area has been made safe by Customer, and Customer shall pay reasonable disruption and re-mobilization costs and expenses as reasonably determined by RemoteLock.  Customer agrees to indemnify, defend and hold RemoteLock and its contractors harmless for any and all damages resulting from exposure of workers to Hazardous Conditions, including bodily injury and property damage, reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and expert fees, except to the extent that any such damages are exacerbated by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of RemoteLock.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, Customer’s foregoing obligation to indemnify in connection with Hazardous Conditions shall not be subject to any limitation of liability.  Under no circumstances shall RemoteLock, be responsible for the removal or disposal of any hazardous materials.

Term and Termination.

Term.  This Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall continue until the Installation Services are completed and all Fees are paid and/or as this Agreement is otherwise terminated and/or expires according to the terms herein. 

Termination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, this Agreement may be terminated under the following circumstances.  RemoteLock may terminate this Agreement or suspend the Installation Services immediately and without notice for Customer’s material breach of this Agreement.  In the event of a termination pursuant to the foregoing sentence, Customer shall not be entitled to any refund of Fees paid, including any amounts paid for Installation Services that are not yet completed.  If RemoteLock materially breaches this Agreement, Customer may terminate this Agreement “for cause” by providing thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to RemoteLock detailing such material breach, provided that, such termination shall be void if RemoteLock cures its breach within the thirty (30) day period.  If Customer terminates “for cause” RemoteLock will refund any Fees prepaid for Installation Services not yet performed.  Customer may also terminate this Agreement “for convenience” at any time by providing written notice to RemoteLock, however, Customer agrees that all Fees shall remain due to RemoteLock if Customer terminates for convenience. 

Provisions that by their nature, should survive termination of this Agreement shall survive termination.  By way of example, the following will survive termination: any obligation Customer has to pay, indemnification obligations, any limitation of liability and terms regarding disputes.

Fees.

Payment.  Customer agrees that RemoteLock may charge Customer for all applicable fees for the Installation Services (“Fees”).  Fees may be calculated on a time and materials or fixed fee basis.  If Fees are on a time and materials basis, the hourly rate shall be RemoteLock’s then applicable standard hourly rates for the Installation Services unless otherwise set forth in the Order Form.  If Fees are on a fixed fee basis, the applicable fixed fee shall be set forth in the Order Form.  All quoted Fees will be exclusive of taxes, duties and the like, which may be charged by RemoteLock and will be paid by Customer (exclusive of taxes based on RemoteLock’s net income).  If Customer has provided a credit and/or debit card for payment, Customer agrees that fixed fees may be charged immediately and that hourly fees may be charged according to RemoteLock’s then applicable policy.  If any payment is not received, is returned unpaid or if any credit card or similar transaction is rejected, denied, challenged or reversed, RemoteLock may suspend the Installation Services until payment is made or terminate this Agreement for material breach.

If the Order Form indicates that Fees shall be invoiced, Fees shall be due within thirty (30) days of invoice date. Invoices for fixed fees may be sent immediately and invoices for hourly fees may be sent according to RemoteLock’s then applicable policy.  Customer agrees that RemoteLock may send invoices to any address that is set forth on the Order Form.  RemoteLock shall not be required to use Customer’s payment system to submit an invoice, and Customer hereby represents that Customer does not require a purchase order to issue before invoicing.  If Customer fails to pay the Fees on time, RemoteLock may charge the lesser of 1% interest per month or the maximum allowable under applicable law on overdue amounts.
