Well before winter officially started on December 21, North Dakota was already dishing out all the extreme weather conditions farmers and ranchers face: snow, wind, ice, and frigid temperatures. These conditions can put structures, animals, and systems at risk if not monitored carefully, but it’s tough to see everything all day and all night.
From large-scale operations to smaller properties, it is critical for North Dakota farmers and ranchers to ensure that livestock and crops are safe during a storm. That structures are secure in blizzard conditions. And that heat is still running and water isn’t frozen when wind chills plummet.
Fortunately, video security and surveillance systems let farmers and ranchers keep a close eye on all that they built, invest in, and work so hard to run.
Monitor, adjust, and respond from anywhere. Many farmers head to warmer states in the winter, which might make things more comfortable but doesn’t change reality back home. This is when a security system can stand in as a 24/7 friend to check in and make sure all is well on the farm.
Temperature and water sensors let farmers monitor things remotely and detect a problem early, so they can fix issues before it’s too late. For example, a temperature sensor can send an alert via phone or other smart device if the furnace quits working. The farmer can act fast and arrange for repairs, even from many states away.
Prevent and deter theft or trespass. Video security and surveillance systems can help protect agricultural assets such as fuel tanks, machinery, outbuildings, holding pens, grain bins, water supplies – anything that needs oversight to ensure safety and profitability. They can also monitor driveways and structures to detect people entering the property.
Remotely accessible tools such as door and window sensors, glass break detectors, smart light controls, and door auto-locks provide many family farmers the peace of mind and confidence that their home and business will be waiting safely for them when they return. With 24/7 support, any disturbance triggers a live security response.
Specialists can scale video systems to meet the needs of your own farm or ranch. Wintertime and all year long, it’s never been easier to protect your livelihood and all that you hold dear.
