The security challenges of farms and farmers
Farmer owners know first hand the challenges of preventing theft and vandalism. But what options do farmers actually have for defending themselves from rural crime? Vast territories of open land plus expensive machinery and equipment make farm properties very vulnerable to theft and other forms of damage. Thanks to modern technologies, however, feasible and affordable security solutions are now very real. What's more, these solutions are very effective.
Modern security solutions for farm owners
Setting up security cameras all over your farm is a tried and true method for deterring thieves, vandals, and trespassers. However, because of the vast areas of land that farmers deal with, this approach by itself can be rather problematic. Today farmers are quickly recognizing the benefits of IoT (Internet of Things) sensors. Placing wireless motion trackers in key equipment like fuel tanks, vehicles and machinery will allow you to be instantly alerted if an unauthorized individual is attempting to steal your property. Affordable devices like these are especially suitable for large rural areas where it's difficult to keep track of everything. They require little energy, are weather-proof, and can even work without a strong 3G signal.
