2 Years Warranty Conditions

We stand behind our Starke digital locks products and offer a 2 years Warranty to prove it. The terms of the Limited Warranty are as follows:

  • Purchased it directly from an authorised STARKE distribution channel – namely, the website at STARKEDIGITALLOCKS.SG (including purchases made while visiting Starke showroom).
  • Have subjected the lock exclusively to household (commercial provided it is installed by us) use. The Limited Warranty thus only applies during the period in which the Product is owned and controlled by the original purchaser of that Product. Please retain an electronic copy of your purchase invoice which will be sent via email, which will contain the information with regards to your purchase. Kindly quote the order number and provide a short video to our team so that we may better assist with any issues with your purchase.

Starke will, for 2 years following the date of the installation is done and once after the full payment has been made, at Starke’s option in its sole discretion, repair or replace, or provide a substitute for, any piece or part of the Product found by Starke to be defective in material or workmanship.

We will repair or replace the defective Product or the defective component(s) of the Product (if applicable).

If we elect to replace the Product or component, we will replace it with the model, version, colour, or style available at the time of replacement, which may be different in certain respects than the original you purchased.
