Be there for them when they need you, no matter where you are. Video surveillance and security can safeguard crops and livestock.
Farm and ranch responsibilities go beyond business, especially for the vast majority in North Dakota that are family-owned. Whether you are growing crops or raising livestock, you are invested in caring for the life on your land. That includes keeping fields, animals, and family safe in addition to running daily operations.
A video security and surveillance system will help you do both.
First, you can make sure everyone and everything is okay. North Dakota farms and ranches average nearly 1500 acres, and can’t you be everywhere at once. This is when video security and surveillance can be your eyes around-the-clock to see that livestock is secure, water systems are working, and buildings are heated. For example, temperature and water sensors let you monitor systems remotely to detect and fix problems early, such as a broken furnace. The sensor sends an alert via phone or other smart device so you can act fast and arrange for repairs, from across your property or across the country.
Second, you can discourage criminal activity on your property. Farm or ranch theft can be costly, measured in loss of both assets and production. Crime happens when nobody is watching, and the remote, isolated nature of farm and ranch land can provide opportunity for theft or vandalism. Installing a security system equipped with video cameras lets trespassers know they are being watched and protects fuel tanks, machinery, outbuildings, and even livestock. These systems also offer remotely accessible tools such as door and window sensors, glass break detectors, smart light controls, and door auto-locks. Any disturbance triggers a live security response with 24/7 support.
Every farm and ranch, just like every family, is unique, which is why SRT’s security and surveillance specialists design customized systems for each.
Just as you depend on your farm or ranch for your livelihood, the crops and animals you raise depend on you to grow and thrive. You can be there for them 24/7 with a video security and surveillance system.
