Traditional farm managers use manpower to protect crops. If the crops with high economic value, farmers often need to stay overnight in the farm in order to avoid crops being stolen when they are close to the harvest stage. This management method not only wastes manpower, but also there may also be concerns about personal safety. When a suspicious person or animal enters the surveillance area of the surveillance device, the following actions will be executed in sequence: the lighting equipment is activated, the horn device makes a loud noise to deter intruders, the recording equipment activates the recording function and synchronously returns the image data to the monitoring system, immediately notify relevant persons in the farm by means of messages or e-mails that there is a situation in the farm, so that appropriate treatment can be taken. At present, the monitoring devices on the market need to perform one-to-one setting actions between the monitoring device and the camera. If 50 people want to monitor the same camera equipment, they need to perform 50 link setting actions. If there are 20 camera equipments, a total of 50*20=1,000 needs to be set. If you use this invention, no matter how many people want to monitor the same camera equipment, you only need to perform the setting action once. In addition, this invention has the characteristics of low cost (under USD 70), small size and easy installation and use. If this invention is applied to farm management, it will greatly reduce the demand for management manpower, thereby reducing management costs and increasing income.
