If you own horses or run an equestrian facility, you know how much care and attention these wonderful animals require. A large stable with many horses is a lot to manage, and you may be wondering if there’s a more convenient way to guarantee the horses are safe, fed, and have the water they need.
We’re an automation technology integrator who has worked with equestrian facilities in Wellington, FL. The horse owners we’ve partnered with now use a state-of-the-art equestrian surveillance system in and around their facility. We’ll share in this article how security and networking technology can assist in the care of your horses.
Modern equestrian estates use stall surveillance cameras to quickly check in on a horse’s food and water buckets. You’ll want to use high-definition cameras with night vision footage to help you see in low light settings. Built-in video analytics can alert your security system if specific actions occur—like an unfamiliar face enters the stable or a stall door is opened.
The footage from your stable’s stalls can be displayed in real-time on weatherproof TVs inside the building and on the exterior walls. As grooms walk around the property, they’ll be able to glance at the screen and catch if Sally’s water looks low. After hours, the grooms can also monitor the stables and fields from their carouseling camera feed on their in-room displays.
You don’t have to be anywhere near the stable to see camera footage—or on the property at all, for that matter! With remote monitoring on your phone or tablet, you’re free to check on video feeds from anywhere in the world. You’re always a moment away from checking in on your stable, toggling between different cameras, and checking on each horse.
If your property has weak or little cell signal, you’ll rely on a wireless network for grooms, instructors, and riders to communicate with each other. An automation installer can trench networking wires underground and build wireless access point stations, so your entire property is connected. Check video feeds, then send a call to a groom, letting them know a horse’s bucket was kicked over or is low on water.
Horse facilities require specific security and networking solutions, and our team is equipped to design and install a system that works for you. If you’re interested in an equestrian surveillance system, contact First Priority Audio here to learn more today.
