    Pierce was marketing one a few years ago, the detector wires basically removed your approach to the a window or parapet wall. IMO, it is another alarm to stop the rig. Keep 10' from wires and you should be OK.

    Don't worry, those rubber boots with steel shanks do perfectly fine at preventing electrocution.

    Anything that doesn't require battery's, a charger, or any other user consumable. They won't get changed or charged, or worse, somehow broken.
    That leaves your eyes, a good situational awareness, and better aerial placement.
