Increasing Productivity For Poultry FarmsPosted on Thursday 7th June 2018
A blockage at a transfer point, spilling eggs onto the floor, is a scenario you may be familiar with. It’s time-consuming, messy and costly. To combat this, experts in security systems O.R.P Surveillance install cameras at each transfer point and in the packing area, which means that any potential problems are detected before they happen, maximising productivity throughout the packaging process.
To further increase a farm’s productivity, cameras can be installed to monitor the behaviour of flocks. These detect early signs of stress within the chickens, preventing loses. O.R.P Surveillance are market leaders in thermal imaging cameras, which give a continually updated picture of floor temperatures as well as monitoring the condition of machinery, ventilation and insulation. This is an important aspect when, like now, the weather makes temperature stability more challenging.
Outside, external cameras can be fitted to monitor activity on and around the farm, which is especially useful for deliveries. Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras are useful for monitoring traffic flow on farms. O.R.P Surveillance use wireless cameras that reduce the need for expensive cabling and which do not require overhead power lines. All of this can be viewed wirelessly from home, which frees up valuable time for other tasks. O.R.P Surveillance provide the technology to be able to view cameras from anywhere in the world from a mobile or tablet device, which also gives peace of mind when you are away from the farm.
