Getting your Vigil AAD serviced is a breeze, and it only involves a few easy steps. Here's how to proceed:

1. Access our Return Merchandise Authorization Forms (RMA) 

2. Complete the RMA form in full before sending your Vigil AAD unit to us for service.

3. After successfully submitting the form, you'll receive an email containing your RMA Form in PDF form.

4. Please take a moment to print out this PDF and include it along with your Vigil AAD when you send it to us.


In case you do not receive the email containing your RMA Form, do not hesitate to reach out to our support team for assistance.

To ensure the secure and traceable shipment of your unit, we strongly recommend utilizing a trusted courier service such as FedEx, UPS, or DHL. This choice not only guarantees traceability but also ensures that you will receive timely delivery notifications for added peace of mind.

For countries outside EU shipping to our Belgium location

We highly advise opting for UPS as your courier service. It tends to be more cost-effective, faster, and reliable. Lately, we've encountered issues and substantial custom charges with packages from outside the EU. Should you choose not to use UPS, we can't ensure proper handling or timely delivery. Additionally, there may be an invoice for custom administration costs.

If you are sending your Vigil to our Belgium location, please email with the tracking number of your shipment. Use your RMA Number in the subject line.

If you are using Downward Trend to send your Device to Belgium, no email is required.
