Does Service Protection Plan cover wiring installed by the customer or a third party?

No. enTouch’s Service Protection Plan only covers coaxial cable installed by enTouch or our predecessors in interest. Coaxial cable installed by the customer or a third party is not covered. Most coaxial cable sold in retail stores does not meet the standard wire specifications outlined in the National Electrical Code and the Electronic Industry Association standards. All phone wiring, so long as it is installed to industry standards, is covered regardless of who installed it. (Phone wire is built to a set industry standard, regardless of vendor).

What is the demarcation point?

The demarcation point begins 12 inches outside of your home and extends inside to the individual cable outlets and extensions. For apartments, condominium or other group facilities, the demarcation point is the outlet or jack inside the unit.

Does Service Protection Plan cover customer damage to outside wiring?

No. enTouch’s Service Protection Plan only applies to inside wiring. All outside wiring, beyond the demarcation point, is our responsibility unless there is deliberate damage, or the wiring is owned by another service provider. Please note that you may be responsible for any damage you cause to outside wiring.

Does this cover repair of any customer-owned equipment?

No. Our coverage includes diagnosis, at no additional charge, which will confirm a problem residing within customer-owned equipment; however, you are responsible for repair costs to any equipment you own.

Does this cover repair of enTouch installed home security systems?

Yes. Our coverage includes diagnosis, at no additional charge, which will confirm a problem residing with your enTouch home security system. If the problem is found to be due to the alarm panel or the alarm battery, enTouch will replace free of charge. If the trouble is due to other ancillary alarm equipment or security camera, you will be responsible for the repair or replacement of this equipment.

Does Service Protection Plan cover the repair or installation of wires concealed within a wall?

No, this plan only covers inside wiring from the cable outlet or jack to your equipment. Wiring within the walls is not covered.
