Horse security and surveillance is an important part of overall equestrian care. Foaling cameras and sick horse watch cameras are essential to farm monitoring but they are not the only cctv farm security that is needed. Monitoring to make sure that the horses are not injuring themselves or other horses and foals is also an important part of good equestrian management. You will also need to protect your property against malicious acts by vandals or intruders.

Many small and large horse facilities have discovered the benefit of monitoring and documenting their horses’ behaviors and habits. Re-playing the horse video footage to study behavior and habits, or to show your vet how a horse is acting or responding is a handy tool to have when providing adequate care for your horses.

Many of our customers have had to show the authorities archived footage of vandalism, malicious acts or even unwanted animals repeatedly on their property and/or harming their livestock. Having archived video footage from their digital video recorder proved what was occurring and in many cases solved a mystery that would have never been discovered without their farm cctv equipment.

The following case studies outline several of the horse and livestock facilities we have designed farm security systems for in the past few years.

Tell us about your property and your protection or monitoring needs, and we will modify an existing packaged system, or even design a custom system that will accomplish what you need. Our design services are FREE.
