Security cameras offer farmyard peace of mind


Intershape is launching three new options to its range of security and observation cameras this autumn. All options are designed to offer security around farm buildings and yards, or can be used for high quality observation of activities in livestock yards, particularly at calving and lambing time.

A complete security system is being introduced with Intershape's 4-cameras DVR recording system. This fully integrated system uses a hard disc rather than a tape to record movement or activity. With a range of 150metres, it is ideal for around buildings and yards that are within close proximity of the farmhouse or office. The all-inclusive price, including all four cameras, is £750 plus VAT.

For those farmers wanting just one security or observation camera with a range of 150 metres, Intershape is introducing a sturdy and reliable system for £160. “This is ideal for calving houses, and near the farm house,” says Intershape MD Paul Butland.

“We have introduced this camera in response to farmer demand. Many find that they are managing more livestock with less labour and want to ease the burden while maintaining high standards of stockmanship, but they do not require the long-range distance features of our existing cameras.”

The third new addition to the Intershape portfolio is a buzzer alarm option on the existing WV300 camera range. These top-or-the-range cameras start at £445 plus VAT and transmit up to 1000 metres. For an extra £95 to the basic camera, the buzzer alarm will give an audio signal in response to any movement of vehicles or people.

“This buzzer is fitted as an integral part of the camera and is a unique feature among security cameras, offering a very valuable and effective means of ensuring security,” says Mr Butland.

Other options available with WV300 camera range, which support up to four cameras, are colour, sound and infrared, each costing £50 extra. Full recording options are also available. As a special offer, the sound option is being included in all sales of the WV300 camera during September and October.

“There is no doubt that security is becoming a bigger issue in rural businesses - and we hear more cases of rural crime with some areas more at risk than others,” adds Mr Butland. “Fortunately, more farmers are taking precautions 'before the horse has bolted' and installing security systems.”
