Farm-Alert has been a leader in energizer production for nearly 37 years and Fence-Alarm is their newest product. Fence-Alarm works by simply connecting the monitoring box to your fence line. It then uses a cellular network to report to your mobile device or computer. When installing Fence-Alarm, you will set a voltage threshold. This voltage should be below your ideal operating voltage. The threshold will be used to alert you if your fence voltage drops below that value. This threshold value will depend on the energizer you use, as well as the size of your fence. Only one Fence-Alarm is needed for every energizer you have in operation on your farm.






LacyPhoneNot only does Fence-Alarm send you a message when your line is dead, the device also sends you daily voltage reports and alerts. Alerts are sent when your voltage drops below the preset threshold so you are able to closely monitor the performance of your fence and energizer. Along with daily text messages, you can also use the free app on your smart phone. Some additional monitoring features on the app include current voltage, voltage history, and the ability to add as many users as you wish. By adding additional users, you give your farm hands access to reminders and alerts. If you do not have a smart phone, you can still receive daily voltage reports, threshold alerts, dead line alerts, change your voltage threshold, and check your current voltage through text messages or email.

This technology saves you time and the hassle of checking your fence’s voltage. It prevents accidents and loss of livestock, and it give you the peace of mind of knowing your fence is operating correctly.

With a very user-friendly app and operating system, Fence-Alarm is a great asset to add to any operation. Something to consider before purchasing the Fence-Alarm is the strength of cellular service in the areas of your fence. Since the system relies on the cellular network to relay the voltages to your phone, you need cell service. Another consideration would be the cost of Fence-Alarm. There is a monthly subscription fee. However, if the system is purchased through Kencove, you will receive a one-year subscription to the monitoring service for FREE.


Having the peace of mind knowing your animals are safely behind a properly electrified fence is truly priceless. Having the ability to monitor your fence constantly from all corners of the world is simply a bonus. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 1-800-KENCOVE or sales@kencove.com.
