How to Keep Your Farm Secure

Farming season is not just one season a year but all four seasons. As a security company, we know that your farm is not only your business/job but also your way of living. SPS Fire and Security can help you protect what you’ve worked so hard for through comprehensive farm security. We realize that your farmland most likely has a wide range of functions. These functions may involve horses, barns, crops, large farming equipment and more. That’s a lot to protect!

As you provide for your family, there are a few security measures you should take.

Tips for Farm Security

  • Install fences and post “Do Not Trespass” signs on the fence. If you want to make your farmland harder for a thief to access, installing a fence is one security measure you can take. Once you have installed the fence, have a motion sensor alarm added. This alarm will go off if a thief tries to gain access to a certain area. If they gain access, they can only go so far before the alarm sounds.
  • You may also want to consider having security cameras installed. By having these cameras installed, it will allow you gain access to video surveillance footage while at home and away.
  • Install motion lighting. Your video surveillance camera footage will be able to show you proof when the lights go on and what made them trigger.
  • Invest in a complete wireless security system. By having wireless security, you are providing yourself with the comfort of being able to maintain the security of farmland that is farther away from your home.

When you have multiple structures on your property, you can secure each one. If you only want authorized people entering the horse stable or a barn, you can invest in access control for those buildings.

Another area that you may want to keep secure is the grain bin. Unfortunately, grain bins have a history of being the sites of trespasser accidents. Motion lights can be placed around these areas, as well as motion detectors so an alarm can be triggered. The idea of securing the grain bin area is to keep trespassers from climbing the ladder affixed to the outside of the bin. They could fall off the ladder or open the upper door and fall into the grain bin. A bin full of grain can be difficult, if not impossible, for someone to get out of, but falling to the bottom of an empty one almost always ends in tragedy.
