Talos™ lightning Detector

Talos™ Series Lightning Detector



The new patent-pending Talos™ Series Storm and Lightning Detector provides storm safety awareness of lightning strikes in the area up to a distance of 25 miles.

Lightning causes over 6000 deaths and injuries per year. Since 2006, lightning strikes were reported as the second leading cause of storm deaths in the United States. Most of these injuries could have been prevented had they known that lightning was in the area.

The Talos™ Series lightning detector alerts you to an approaching or departing storm front and lightning by sensing the distance of lightning strikes that are occurring in the area via audible and visual alerts.
