In today’s electronic world, your home’s electrical, phone and cable systems are incomplete unless they incorporate surge protection. Since many devices in the home are microelectronic based, it is not practical to solely rely on surge protected plug strips.

Appliances, heating and cooling systems, garage door openers and even energy saving light bulbs are examples of equipment that can’t be surge protected by plug strips. The cost to repair or replace these items far exceeds the cost of a total home surge protection solution.

To effectively surge protect ALL of your home’s equipment, Siemens developed the FirstSurge™ family of surge protective devices. They stop surges right at your incoming services before they can travel down the power, cable and telephone lines damaging your equipment.

Total Home Protection

Today's modern home is filled with appliances and electronics that require protection from surges. A surge is a brief burst of energy that can enter through a home's power, cable, and telephone lines, causing damage to dishwashers, refrigerators, TVs, computers, and more. Siemens' FirstSurge devices are designed to stop surges before they enter in order to prevent that damage from happening and protect the whole house.
