Electric Fences Monitoring

Electric fence monitoring can be used to detect and locate faults in electric fences, reducing the time lost and manual effort required in the event of electric fence defects. Farmdeck’s sensors provide near real-time monitoring information about fence status and voltage levels from the Farmdeck app. You can opt to receive alerts when a fence is switched off because of a fault or goes below a certain voltage level threshold. While one sensor can monitor an entire fence, multiple sensors can be used to monitor a narrower of fence distance, meaning you can locate faults more quickly.

Case Study

Electric fences monitoring at Stoney Creek Farm Stoney Creek is a 500-hectare farm located in Bathurst, NSW. They are home to 100 breeding cows and several hundred sheep. The farm is spread across a public road which splits the land into two. To help prevent livestock from wandering onto the road, his paddocks are surrounded by 1,424 metres of electric fences. With Farmdeck’s electric fence monitoring solution utilising sensors, the team at Stoney Creek can look at the voltage level of fences at any given time and from anywhere. If the voltage goes below or above a certain threshold, they will receive an alert notification and be able to attend to the issue quickly, so they can be certain that livestock won’t stray onto the road.
