Installation of the Modern Smart Farm System in the Zoo - Zlín
“The new electric fence system enables us to have our paddocks under constant control and facilitates the identification of a particular point of failure. It’s a really unique system in all respects.”
Director of Zoo Zlín Ing. Roman Horský

In the autumn of 2021, we installed a Smart electric fence system on animal enclosures in the Zlín Zoo. We applied our Smart Farm system to increase overall work efficiency. It concerned a unique system for controlling electric fencing from a mobile phone, tablet, or computer.

Preparation for installation of Modern Smart Farm

Before the implementation of the project, careful planning and preparation in the form of meetings with technicians and the Zoo management were ensured. We submitted requirements for fencing needing safeguarding and the expectations. Our technicians then tested the quality of reception at the designated places of installation. It was discovered that an external antenna would have to be used in certain Smart RF devices owing to the difficult and hilly terrain at the installation sites. After these consultations and tests, we were ready to carry out the arranged installation and commission of the system.

The goal of the project was to install the Modern Smart Farm system on five animal fences in the Zoo area. They were fences, specifically, for bears, lions, geladas, tigers, and hyenas. Two powerful energizers for electric fencing energy DUO RF EDX150 (15 J output) and, as per need, two up to four control Monitors MX10, ensuring surveillance over the entrance gate and the critical points of the electric fencing, were installed on each fence. All devices were controlled from two central units FENCE Wi-Fi GATEWAY GW100. One of the important parts of the installation was also commissioning the web fencee Cloud application on one central computer.

"Before we got the smart RF energizer fencee, we had to walk to the old energizer every time, or call someone to turn it off - trial and error ensued to see if the fence was still energized or not."

Let’s start

On the installation day, in front of the Zlín Zoo building, we met the lead technician responsible for the technical side of the installation on the Zoo’s part. There were carts prepared for transportation of material, and helpful staff waiting for us at each enclosure. Since there was no need to wait for anyone, everything went smoothly. After installing two electric fences and having a nice lunch in a local restaurant, the technicians proceeded to work on the three remaining enclosures. At about 4 p.m., everything was completed – installed, connected, paired. Five enclosures were successfully secured through new Smart RF energizers that were subsequently connected to the fencee Cloud app and paired with the central gateway. The gateway was installed in a suitable elevated place in the Zoo’s technology room. The last part of the project was the commissioning of the system in the main computer, i.e. the adjustment of all required alarm values on individual fences, the assignment of access and rights to individual users, and, last but not the least, the training of the Zoo’s lead technician.

In the drop-down menu, you can see all RF devices installed in the Zlín Zoo.

Conclusion & Acknowledgement

The whole installation took 1 working day, and we believe it has brought huge benefits and time savings in addition to the Zoo’s excellent work. Thanks to the Modern Smart Farm system, the zoologists now have, through their mobile phones, constant control of the animal fences, literally from anywhere and, if a problem occurs, their phones notify them immediately in the form of a text message and e-mail. From the main computer, a technician can monitor and control all electric fences and has complete control of all fences in the area. In his speech and acknowledgment, Roman Horský, Director of the Zlín Zoo, summarized everything the Smart Farm system offers. “The new electric protection system enables us to have the electric fencing under constant control and facilitates the identification of a particular point of failure. It’s a unique system in all respects.”

We deeply appreciate the opportunity to cooperate with Zlín Zoo. We are convinced that the next Smart Farm products will be added thanks to the functions and contribution of the entire system.

After more than half a year of using our system, we bring you a detailed description with an interview about the functioning of the entire system of the Smart Farm fencee Cloud in the Zlín Zoo. We talked about the remote control and advantages of the system with the manager of electric fences, Vlastimil Mizera.
