Protect Your Devices from Lightning Damages

With summer comes extreme temperatures, and with it, the approach of the storm season. Sometimes, it comes so suddenly that we are caught off guard and forget to protect our network devices at home. 
Learn how to protect your router and other devices from surge damage so that lightning and thunder don't catch you unprepared.

Even if the lightning doesn't strike directly, but rather in the immediate vicinity, overvoltage can cause disruptions in the power and telephone network. The connected devices such as routers or telephone systems can also be damaged.

Here are a few tips for you so that the next thunderstorm passes you by without leaving a trace.

Tips on how to protect your equipment from lightning damage
  • During thunderstorms, disconnect all devices from the power and telephone network. Just unplug all the appliances.
  • A multiple socket allows you to disconnect all appliances from the mains supply at the same time with just one plug. Important: Only switching off the toggle switch does not protect against damage caused by lightning and overvoltage.
  • Sockets with integrated surge protection offer additional protection. For further information, please contact your local electrical store, DIY store or electrician.
  • After a thunderstorm, switch the equipment back on and check all functions.
