All SmartLiving Range of Products have a surge protection in built.
Each of the SmartLiving range of device including those mentioned in the question protects against overvoltage transients such as lightning, power contact and power induction. The device used metal oxide varistors that offers protection as mentioned in below. The devices have a high current handling, high energy absorption capability and fast response times to protect against transient faults up to rated limits.
|Maximum working r.m.s. voltage||320V|
|Maximum clamping voltage||845V|
|Surge Current||10A (Class A Current @ 8/20uSec)|
|Max Peak Current||1200A @8/20uSec (One time)|
|Max Energy that protection can handle||30Joules @ 8/20uSec|
Does the inbuilt protection provided in SmartLiving device is enough for the surge transient?
Well, the answer is: It depends upon the type of transient.
On the other hand the SmartLiving devices are very compact and a typical heavy surge protection for any kind of surge cannot be implemented in the device due to size limitations, where as it is always a good idea to protect entire smart home including SmartLiving devices installed in it. This may offer additional protection to other cheaper devices installed in the home like LED bulbs and other house hold appliances.
You may find more information on surge protection on the internet which is outside of the scope here, below is one of such pointer for your reference considering Smart Home protection in mind.
