Whole house surge protector options.

Newbie

I am a residential home owner.  My home is less than 3 years old, electrical system is built to code.  I have 2 main panels and 1 subpanel.  The subpanel is configured to receive power from a generator during power disruptions (I do not currently have a generator).  I want to protect my electric system with surge protection.  What is the best option for me, a 51120 series device on each panel or a 50208 unit installed outside on the meter?

 

Does one option provide better surge protection than the other?

 

Is there another device option or approach I should consider?
