Other fencing measures such as electric fencing which your cattle may use, also comes in handy to prevent access to your property... Having electric fencing running at suitable scheduled times of the day is suitable for cattle farming in different paddocks and can save you on power if you plan your perimeter, according to what areas a most susceptible to entry.

2. Sensors and motion-triggered devices

Sensor lights, drive-way laser lines, relays and motion alarms are all great safety precautions and will notify you in the event of someone's arrival. The simplest and cheapest safety feature is the sensor light, almost two-thirds of kiwi households around New Zealand have sensor lights a safety & security measure. By installing safety lights in well-covered areas such as verandas, decks, front & back walkways, next to bedroom windows and garages, will help your awareness of someone's presence on your property...  Having laser lines at the start of your driveway is another great notifier of someone's welcomings, simple yet effective, laser-lines relay tones back to your property like a doorbell if an object has passed through the laser. They're discrete and better than cans on a string...

3. Lock it up!

Doors, cabinets, fire-arms cases, valuables, vehicles, and gates...  Make sure everything is locked up or locked away from uninvited people to prevent theft. Having primary lockdown areas such as Doors, windows, and gates is the first major precaution to keep in mind to prevent theft. In case of a break-in, secondary lockdown should be applied, having valuables hidden away and important objects locked up will stop burglars from taking the most important things that matter to you and your family... if you have TVs on walls, padlock it with a security bar behind the TV, if you have a Home Theatre receiver or amplifier in a cabinet you should padlock it to prevent it from being stolen, or to stop the kids clicking buttons or pulling on cables...

A good practice to follow is setting an alarm or timer on your phone to notify you every night when to lock the gates, garage and doors & windows for the safety of your family.
