Does Your Big Property And Long Driveway Need More Protection? What To Do Today

Living in a wooded area with a lot of property can have its security concerns, and if you are worried about problems with intruders, vandalism, and people on your property, it's time to invest in protection. There are some different things that you can get to help improve the security around your home.

You want to be sure that you have cameras for protection, a security system, and some other protective possibilities. Talk with the local security and electronic and automation experts about these things.

Motion-Sensor Thermal Cameras

Cameras that reach up to 50 yards out into the property are best, since you can't see long distances into the woods. If you have an open clearing, you may want cameras that reach even further. Look into cameras that don't just activate recording with motion, but also that detect heat. Thermal cameras can help you catch someone that is wearing all black and moving slow to try to throw the cameras off.

You want lights to come on at your property if the motion is detected as well to make it easier for the cameras to record. Since these will activate with larger animals, you will have to decide how far away from the house you want the light motions to trigger. Make sure you can control these cameras from your phone and that you can view the live feed at any time around the property.

Driveway Cameras and Signs

Put motion cameras up at the end of a long driveway. Also put signs that indicate that the property is under security surveillance, so anyone looking at the property or attempting to pull into the driveway knows they are detected.

Dogs for Protection

If you don't already have a dog, you may want to consider getting one or two. The dogs are going to detect things that electronic devices cannot, and the bark of a dog can be enough to scare someone away. You want to take your dogs to a training program that will help them be the best guard dogs that they can be for your property.

Living on a large piece of property where you are often alone can be peaceful, but you want to make sure that you are safe and that others know you are taking the necessary precautions to be safe. There are a lot of things that you can do to protect yourself and you want to get started installing these items today.
