Security & Fire Protection Systems/Lightening Strike and Alarm system

Also very important.  Your dealer should install a surge suppression on all the zones, loops and power as well as the RJ31X areas.  This is very important to mitigate another lightning strike in the future, or you may have to do this all over again. That can be a problem.  Assuming of course you believe that lightning never strikes in the same place twice...don't you believe that.  Fact has proven, if lightning does take out your system, then it is even more probable in the future that it will take out your systems again. I respect the original consultant and reserve the right as to where you can find the best protection products for your panel.
