While the wellbeing of your animals may be of prime importance to you, it is their value that will attract unwanted visitors to your farm or horse stables. Expensive equipment may also bring undesirables to your back door. Animals and equipment can’t always be kept locked away, leaving them vulnerable to intruders, so if you want to ensure that your premises are secure, consider using the following:
- External lighting. External lighting will deter thieves and make it very difficult for them to steal anything without being easily detected. External lighting will help to keep your horses, cattle, sheep and other livestock safe without frightening them or causing them to panic.
- CCTV. Prominent CCTV cameras are also an excellent deterrent for burglars. Nobody wants to run the risk of being recognised and arrested after the event. CCTV is another non-invasive way to protect your animals and equipment.
- Burglar alarms. Wailing sirens are extremely unnerving for animals, but there is a way to fit alarms so that your premises are protected without causing them any distress. The best idea is to fit an intruder alarm that does not generate an audible alarm on the farm or at the paddock. These alarms are usually linked the stable or farm owner’s home via a control panel. An audible warning can be sounded when the lights are triggered, along with flashing LEDs. Where applicable, the alarm system can also be linked to the local police station and can even alert the intruder to the fact that they are being monitored and, if you have CCTV, that they are on camera.
