"In strong winds, it happens to us that a branch or a whole tree falls on the wires and causes a short circuit in the fence. Thanks to the new smart fence system, we know what is happening and can react immediately."
Owner Mr. Vlastimil Petrlak

It has been some time since the owner of a sheep farm, Mr. Vlastimil Petrlák, approached us with a request for a high-performing and reliable energizer for an electric fence. The main reason for the initial contact was dissatisfaction with an existing fence energizer from another manufacturer, with which he was constantly dealing with the problem of insufficient output power and unreliability.

After a bad experience with a competitor's electric fence system, which works via a GSM module that allows you to receive notifications of voltage changes via SMS, he was looking for another, better and more reliable smart electric fence solution. One thing led to another and after getting acquainted with our sophisticated Smart Farm system, which allows a perfect overview of the electric fences, we had another client who was interested in Smart Farm with fencee Cloud app.

Few words about the sheep farm

Petrlák Farm was established in 2014 with the intention of year-round sheep breeding. In the spring they started building their first electric fence and in the autumn they brought in a basic breeding flock of 11 sheep from the Strathisla Sea Bird line. Minimal breeding experience, virtually no farming background, and the unwillingness of other breeders to share information and advice - all contributed to the slow and difficult start-up of the sheep farm. As time passed and they gained their own experiences, everything began to turn towards a better tomorrow and the pleasure of sheep farming. They currently own 19 ewes and 40 lambs, with about half ewes and half lambs. The entire farm covers an area of 13,3 hectares. For more current information directly from the farm, visit the website www.ovce-suffolk.cz or the Facebook page www.facebook.com/farma.petrlak.

Motivation to purchase a Smart Farm system

The possibility to watch and monitor the current resistance value of electric fencing with a warning of voltage drop was one of the main reasons to purchase a new smart electric fence energizer. "In strong winds, it happens to us that a branch or a whole tree falls on the wires and causes a short circuit in the electric fence. Thanks to the new smart electric fence system, we know what is happening and can react immediately." alert on damaged electric fence - video

Recently, a neighbor's hay bale escaped and tore through our electric fence. Thanks to the Smart Farm system, we knew about it immediately, fixed the problem and the sheep didn't run away."

Another key element for the acquisition was the sufficient power of the fence energizer. The electric fences are now powered by smart energizer fencee energy DUO RF EDX150, which has the function of gradually increasing the output power up to 15 J according to the current load of the fence. "A high-performing fence energizer is handy, more power = less problems. Basically, we don't care about anything until the energizer calls itself."

The energizers of the fencee energy DUO RF EDX model series have an output power of 8 - 15 J. This makes them suitable for locations where you need to ensure maximum power and reliability for the correct functioning of the entire electric fence. EDX energizers display the current load status of the electric fence on the backlit LCD display. This makes it easy to see in what condition your electric fence is and whether the vegetation is dense enough to need cutting. 5 levels indicating the height of vegetation

"We are very satisfied with high-performing smart energizer, it compensates for various losses in the fence caused by surrounding vegetation."

The remote control of the electric fence was also an essential factor for more efficient work, saving time and effort. The smart energizers can be controlled with a handy remote controller or mobile phone via the fencee Cloud app. "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."

The powerful combined electric fence energizer is suitable for long (up to 120 km) fences…

The benefit of remote-controlled electric fencing is very practical in farm life. This is confirmed by Jakub Petrlák, who has the largest proportion in the maintenance of electric fences. Thanks to the time saved, he has more leeway to improve conditions on the farm and also to breed the sheep.

"The fencee Could app is a must, (otherwise) everything would take ages again."

Benefits of Smart Farm system as seen by Petrláks family:

  • Phone control saves us time and effort, previously we walked many unnecessary kilometers around the fence
  • We don't waste our energy, it's already irreplaceable for us from a practical point of view
  • The time and money we save is spent for looking after the sheep and developing the farm
  • Everyone in the family has an app on their mobile phone with information they need
  • We get warning alerts when electric fencing is not working or stagnates
  • If the system doesn't alert, we know everything is working correctly

Electric fences in Petrlák Farm

Electric fences for sheep consist of massive wooden posts with a 3.15 mm diameter steel wire to the fence, which ensures the highest possible conductivity along the entire length of the electric fence. The main fence was built with five rows of fence wires. The next sections of the fence have 4 rows of wire and the last has only three rows. They use electric fence nets for operational division of the fence. For security reasons, the farm is actively monitored by CCTV.

All fences are interconnected and powered by one high-performing energizer, which is located at the edge of the wooden shepherd's hut under the constant influence of the outside environment. Just below the energizer is a central control device FENCE WiFi GATEWAY GW100, which allows remote control and online monitoring of the electric fence parameters by mobile phone or PC.
