"Electrical Code" "in a lot of places" requires surge protection on all low voltage wiring where it exits/enters a building?

I see the difficulty. I'm in the big city. So many of the hots and grounds are locked down by the lawyers ready to sue everyone that the situations you describe haven't even come up.

I've been amused to see a dish on a 10' 4x4 next to a front walkway gate. The idea of cameras in trees is pretty scary, so, yeah to surge protection!

As for lightning, is there really anything that can stop it if it hits near a CAT-5 or CAT-6?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
