Product Description

Get extra protection with our Surge Guard by reducing potential service interruptions.

Power Surges at Home

Service interruptions can occur because of lightning strikes or electrical storms, but the most common power surges come from inside the home. Power surges occur when the flow of electricity is interrupted and started again, or when something sends electricity back into the system. You've seen this before: your space heater is plugged in and you go to blow-dry your hair. Bam. Darkness. You blew the fuse. That was a power surge. Surges like these are harmful to your appliances, electronic devices, and your home medical alert system. Protect your Alert1 medical alert system by connecting your power and phone lines into the Surge Guard today. With the Surge Guard, you will know that your loved one never goes a minute without safety, independence and peace of mind. Power surges are regular occurrences. They’re unavoidable with our current system of providing electricity to homes but they can be a real annoyance. Whether or not you should get a Surge Guard depends on what sort of device you’re hooking up to the power supply. If you have a home medical device, you especially don’t want to risk ruining it during a power surge.

When to Use a Surge Guard

A Surge Guard should always be used with electronic devices such as your medical alert system, laptop or television. Devices like these use microprocessors to function—it’s an integral part of all computers as well as most home appliances. Microprocessors are particularly sensitive to surges, and only function properly when they receive stable current at the right voltage.

Working Round-the-Clock

By using Alert1’s Surge Guard, you can rest at ease knowing that your home medical system will always function—regardless of any electrical storm that may be brewing outside. The Surge Guard will protect your device from harmful voltage spikes, ensuring that it’s always fully functional. The last thing you would want to happen in an electrical storm is to suffer a fall. Why make the situation worse by not having your medical alert system work when you need it to? With Alert1’s Surge Guard, you don’t have to think twice about the issue.

Small in Size, Big in Power

The Alert1 Surge Guard is designed to be convenient, portable, and reliable. With its direct plug-in design, you can plug it in and out of whichever outlet you need. It’s small enough where you can just toss it in your briefcase or purse and have quality surge protection wherever—in a hotel room, a friend’s house, the office—anywhere! Don’t let the surge guard’s small size fool you, it’s powerful too. Standing at 1.5” tall, this tiny protector features 1080 joules of AC Suppression. These 1080 joules of protection shields your medical home system from harmful surges, spikes and line noise with its built-in telephone and modem surge protection. How do you know if your Surge Guard is working? By looking at it! The Surge Guard has a diagnostic LED to display your current protection status. The built-in LED confirms suppressor “protection present” (red) status so that you can dismiss any reservations you might have had. You can also place your confidence in the fact that the Surge Guard is UL 1449 rated 3rd Edition. Grab a Surge Guard today and put your mind at ease. You can rest assured knowing that you and your medical home system are protected—electrical storm or not.

This was helpful to protect the system from lightning strikes. Now I don't have to worry about the electricity surges.
