How to make a return?

1. Get a Return Authorization

To request a return online, fill the form on this page.

Returns can also be requested by calling 1-212-431-5066 or via chat. You must contact a Canal Alarm Support representative to return the following:

  • defective products
  • items delivered by freight carrier, or
  • items shipped directly from the manufacturer

2. Pack your items carefully

Returned items must be new and in the original packaging, complete with all original accessories and manuals. To protect products in shipping, Canal Alarm over-boxes most products. Please use the original over-box and the manufacturer’s packaging.

3. Attach the shipping label

For most returns, you will receive a UPS Authorized Return Service (ARS) shipping label along with your return authorization number. Remove or completely cover up the original labels, then securely tape one completed ARS label to each package.

4. Give the package to UPS

Take it to any official UPS drop-off site. For the location nearest you, call 1-800-742-5877 or visit
