Camera’s: Making life on the farm easier all the way around!
Security Alarm designed an HD security camera system for Jarden Farms and the following are their thoughts on how the system has improved life around the farm:
Assisting with Farm Operations: Calving Area
At Christmas-time our family was 30 miles away from the farm visiting relatives. One of our newer employees was willing to stay at the farm due to the upcoming birth of one our calves. Having not only the camera system but remote viewing as well, allowed us to watch the calf being birthed while still away. I was able to talk the guy through the birthing process. I would watch for a little bit on my app and then call and talk to him and so on. I was really impressed because it allowed help for the “new guy” to have assistance and be utilized where otherwise he wouldn’t have been.
This camera system has really helped to exonerate our staff. Often an employee will say, “I did do this or I didn’t do this”. Or other employees will point fingers. The camera system has been great because it has allowed us to go back to specific incidents and see the facts. And in most cases, we were able to exonerate the person instead of finding them at fault.
Using Security Cameras as a Teaching Tool for Employees
These farm security cameras have also been great to use as a teaching tool. You can look back at the video footage and show employees how to do some things better next time.
Protecting Farm Property with Security CamerasUsing
There was a time where we kept having the same unidentified vehicle show up on our property, but we were never quite sure exactly when they would come and go. With these security cameras, we were able to nail down the time of day the car was there. Eventually, we were able to grab a license plate number! This, in turn, allowed the police to track down the individual and end the whole situation.
