Lightning Surge Protection for Home Security

Today home security is of prime concern. Whether you are at home of not, your assets need to be protected. Don't let your alarm system, CCTV, electric fence, gate and garage door motors be compromised. Being away while a lightning storm occurs, can mean more worry for you not having certainty in your surge protection. Be sure that this does not happen to you.

Home Alarm & Security Lightning Surge Protectors

The safety of person and property is of great concern to the citizens living in South Africa today. It is not all doom and gloom though, just good ol' fashioned common sense, to 'prevent nor cure' and to be properly prepared. This means that you protect your security system itself, from going down. Installing an alarm system, CCTV with cameras, and electric fence, LED spot lights and so on means your safety is important to you. Naturally. Now protect it.

An electrical surge is an abnormal, usually externally induced, but temporary high voltage on the electrical mains caused by non-direct lightning strikes or 'dirty power'. Without this protection in place you risk damaging your valuable electronic or comuterized equipment to lightning or 'dirty power' surges.

Surges may also lead to false alarms and high follow-up or call-out costs. Install the right Africa Surge lighting protection for your system. Not all the surge protectors are the same.

Home security protected from lightning surges

Most commonly found in a home security system is:

  1. Security alarm control pad - [WMC HiLo]
  2. The garage door motor - [DB2-275-30]
  3. Gate motor (controller) - [DB2-275-30]
  4. The electric fence energizer - [WMC HiLo]

Product Recommendation

We recommend the WMC HiLo - [for the alarm system and the electric fence energizer] - as it also includes voltage stabilizing circuitry. This protects against fluctuating voltages that could be caused by load-shedding and extends the lifespan of the equipment too. For the Garage door motor, the pool or borehole pump motors we recommend the DB2-275-30.

NOTE: This device needs to be installed by a certified electrician. Products recommended above can be used to protect more than one device.
