Having electric fences around the perimeter of your home or office is one of the most effective ways of protecting your property. By having an electric fence, criminals will not be able to jump over the wall or fencing around the house to in order to gain access to it. It is the first line of defence that any home owner has because no one wants to get hurt by electricity, in including criminals.  

Security companies can install and maintain an electric fence around any home or office. They have the expertise to connect it properly and make sure that it is working properly. It is important that you get professionals as they will do a thorough job and ensure that your home is safe. In addition, electricity is very dangerous and so you would want someone who knows what they are doing to install the electric fence so that no live wires are left exposed.  
An electric fence not only gives off a shock to anyone that is in contact with it, but when it moves, an alarm goes off. This way the people in the house are alerted that someone is tempering with the fences and the security company will also be alerted. After being alerted, the security company will send a response team to check on the premises and make sure there is no trouble.  

However, sometimes, the alarm is triggered because of a tree branch or heavy winds. The fence is very sensitive and can be moved by strong winds during a storm or tree branches around the fence. This is why it is important to try and trim the trees and other vegetation around the fence or else you will end up with a lot of false alarms.  

If there are any problems with the fence such as the fact that it is not working or keeps malfunctioning, the installers can be called in to take a look at it. Once again having a professional to come in and make repairs is important for safety reasons and for ensuring that you are paying for good service.
