How DogWatch Protects Your Home From Lightning

When it comes to safeguarding our homes and beloved pets, there’s no room for compromise. That’s where DogWatch Atlanta steps in, offering a great level of security with their state-of-the-art wireless electric dog fence systems. But DogWatch doesn’t stop there; we’ve taken pet safety to the next level with our electric fence lightning protection, ensuring that your home remains a safe haven whenever lightning occurs.

The Need for Protection from Lightning

Lightning strikes can be catastrophic, not just for the structures they hit but also for the electrical systems within. For homes equipped with a wireless electric dog fence, this risk is magnified due to the extensive network of underground wiring throughout the property. DogWatch Atlanta has recognized this vulnerability and has delivered a solution that protects from lightning strikes, preserving both your property and your peace of mind.

How DogWatch Provides Protection from Lightning

DogWatch’s external lightning protection system is designed to counteract the destructive forces of lightning. When it strikes, it’s naturally drawn to the underground copper wire of your wireless electric dog fence. Without protection, this would lead to a massive surge of electrical energy traveling towards your home, risking damage to your internal electrical system. DogWatch’s system acts as a guardian, redirecting this surge back into the earth, away from your home. This is achieved through a setup that includes a surge protector and grounding rods.

Surge Protector

Mounted on the exterior of your home, the surge protector is a critical component of the wireless electric dog fence. The surge protector is designed to divert the electrical surge away from the fence’s wiring, preventing it from entering the home. These devices are both UL-rated and commercially graded for maximum effectiveness.

Grounding Rods

Complementing the surge protector are the grounding rods. These heavy-duty steel rods are driven into the ground, connect directly to the surge protector. A full eight feet of grounding rod(s) is used to provide a safe pathway for the diverted electrical surge, channeling it harmlessly back into the earth. The grounding rods are what ensures the protection of your home.  Without them there is no lightning protection.

Together, the surge protector and grounding rods provide defense against the unpredictable nature of lightning. DogWatch’s commitment to safety is based on this solution, providing pet owners with great peace of mind.
