Changing weather patterns and questionable utility management can result in noisey or, worse, damaging power fluctuations and surges that can ruin an expensive AV system.

To help mitigate such risks in style, AV accessory brand Austere has introduced a new of line low-profile 4-outlet surge protectors that can be placed unobtrusively near home AV audio equipment and wall-mounted TVs.

The new lineup includes the Austere’s VII Series ($129.99), V Series ($99.99), and III Series ($79.99), all of which have been designed for both form and function.

Austere said its design-centric approach to surge protection draws on both advanced engineering and minimalist aesthetics. The new models are encased in durable, fireproof enclosures “finished with a distinctive linear texture and Flameless MOV protection which gives you peace of mind that powerful surges will not result in a dangerous fire,” the company said.

Austere outfits each model with its signature three blue LEDs that allow home owners to quickly ensure power, proper grounding, and surge protection are safe and operational.

The company said these models regulate the power coming from powerline outside to safeguard against devices burning out from high voltage spikes that can destroy expensive equipment. Each unit features Austere’s OverCurrent protection preventing circuit overload which could cause devices to short-circuit or create dangerous temperatures that may lead to a fire, the company said.
