Farm security

Hi All, I'm getting concerned about the security of our property. We're only there on weekends, and have heard a few reports of theft in the area (of caravans mainly). We will be getting machinery over the next 12 months so would not want that stolen.

Wondering whether anyone would care to share their setup or any tips ?

Hi, We are in the same situation. Our practice is to keep our on-road gates closed at all times so as not to readily indicate whether we are on site or off. When we are absent we secure our gates with good padlocks. In regards to expensive equipment we have also securely chained and padlocked these within their sheds to restrict easy access. There's little you can do to stop true criminals as opposed to the opportunist. You can consider security cameras but little you can do to when you are some distance away. Good luck!

Hi Jenn,

Have you used any motion detection cameras that have a live feed back to your computer or mobile phone?

Regards,
Charlie

Hi Charlie,
No not using any electronic security. Reception at the farm is almost non-existent so wouldn't receive feeds.
Cheers, Jenn

Hi all,

We have a dedicated farm security and monitoring company called Land Watch Australia and would be happy to answer any and all questions about the options for farm security.

Jenn, to address your issue with 'almost non existent' reception, that can often be enough. Today's 3G/4G devices have far superior antenna than a phone so can usually work on very little coverage. Alternatively, there may be potential to use reception from another part of the property and link to the site of the camera.

I hope this helps.

John
