It does not matter how effective and well-armed your nearby law enforcement agency is, securing your property is always going to be a challenge, and it is incumbent upon you to be security conscious at all times and involve your trusted hands to be part and parcel of the self-driven security exercises. While it is nice to know that your law enforcement agencies are among the finest in the world, and that you have the support and vigilant co-operation of your neighborhood watch teams (of which you and your staff are also members), you are never entirely able to rest easy at night.
You literally sleep with one eye open and your rifle butt close by. You are worried whether there has been further tampering of your gates at night. Cameras have to be on all night to monitor the comings and goings of would-be or potential thieves. Locks can be picked and these thieves have most lock-picking tricks up their sleeves. But see how quickly and easily they can pick their way through automatic gates for farms.
Start your timer now. Be patient as the clock ticks away. Because you could well be sitting around until the next day at noon to see if that obtuse cattle raider has managed to succeed. That’s the thing about these automatic gates. Only you and your trusted staff members can open and close them. Patrolling your property at any time of the day becomes easier as well. Being in a remote area of the country, you need to be security conscious at all times, never leaving your vehicle.
And when you need to do so, you can open or close your gates without having to leave your vehicle.
