Commercial Class Surge Protective Devices (SPDs)
Whole House Electrical Surge Protection
Today’s homes filled with smart appliances and electronics require constant surge protection to prevent damage. Selecting a surge protective device that delivers the proper level of protection, and knowing when a surge protector needs to be replaced, are the keys to ensuring your home remains protected. This is why we developed FirstSurge, our commercial class total home surge protector.
Installed at your load center (electrical panel), FirstSurge will stop surges before they get into your home. FirstSurge offers three robustness grades to compensate for the storm activity where you live. All surge protective devices are sacrificial and will eventually wear out. When FirstSurge wears out, its commercial class three stage notification diagnostic immediately alerts you that the unit needs replacing. FirstSurge is first in class compared to devices on the market that have only LED notification, or provide no notification at all.
With FirstSurge commercial class protection, you will have peace of mind that your home will always be surge protected. Make Siemens FirstSurge the first surge protector installed into your home.

Electrical System Protection
A surge, sometimes called a transient or a spike, is a brief burst of energy (voltage and current). The most damaging surges enter through your home’s power, cable and telephone lines. However, the majority of surges originate within the home from the action of motor based appliances like dishwashers, refrigerators, garage door openers, etc.
Siemens FirstSurgeTM stops power surges from entering your electrical system protecting smart appliances, TVs, computers, heating and cooling systems, and more. Every FirstSurgeTM includes commercial class notifiers (LEDs, Audible Alarm, and Red Flashing LED) and supplemental GRM Diagnostics.
Siemens offers three levels of protection for your electrical system:
* FS060 (First Surge Power) = 60,000 Amps
