I have surge/lightning protection on my home. Am I totally safe from lightning strikes?

The short answer is NO. By themselves, surge protectors cannot protect your home’s electronics from being damaged by a power surge caused by direct lightning strikes… in fact nothing can.

You should still set up surge protection in your home to guard against two much more common threats – internal and external power surges.

A lighting strikes contains too much electricity to be stopped by any type of system, not even a full-fledged lighting protection system.
