Power Quality and Lightning protection for Burgs, Fire, CCTV, and Gate access systems. I also want to hear about Back up Generator issues effecting your electronic equipment. I know all 24 manufactures of fire alarm panels. If you ask me I will tell you who I think is the best, and who is the worst. A lot has changed in 30 years, and many consumers have no idea what they are buying, and what they should expect for reliability for their systems. The question is, why are you paying for so many repairs? In the South, re-occurring revenue is extremely important. Do you fall in that category?

Experience in the area

18 years trouble shooting every name brand in after market lightning issues.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Yes, the name brands used, many prefer cheaper products, but normally they do not work. Most security techs, slap the protective product on the system with a kiss or a promise but fail.
