In the midst of other security system suffsnow5ering power outages and faults due to the extreme cold and heavy snowstorms, we’ve received numerous questions about how and why the Electric Guard Dog withstands the winter weather so well compared to competitors. While most know our system is solar-powered and therefore impervious to outages, there are some winter features you may not know about your trusted security partner and business’s best friend, Electric Guard Dog. We also have a few tips for maximizing “Sparky” in the snow.

A Husky on the Klondike

Electric Guard Dog’s construction is as robust as an alpha husky on the Klondike, tail wagging, and ready to hitch to the sled. There are no temperature limitations for Electric Guard Dog. The batteries are maintenance-free, and our solar panels are installed at angles so the snow will typically slide off. Finally, our system has a built-in 5 second delay that allows your security system to take a hit from a falling tree limb and not cause a zone fault.

If a loader or tractor trailer bumps or pushes snow or cars onto our fence, our ¾” diameter of fiberglass poles will flex and typically not break. We have learned over the years to build our systems with multiple types of springs on the steel poles to allow our wires and spring to stretch, rather than pull over our steel poles. Additionally, Electric Guard Dog is a free-standing fence, unlike the electric fence companies that often connect their electric fence to the perimeter fence. Our robust, superior design ensures that when a snow-heavy limb falls on the perimeter fence, it will not impact your perimeter security. Those with an attached fence are not so lucky; in their case that snow-laden limb will knock out their security, as well as their last line of defense.

In short, we built a system that required minimal attention in the Polar Vortex. And in any case, our Customer Service was open 8 am – 8 pm throughout the continental U.S., and our employee-based, 24/365 Technical Service Department was also on hand, as they always are. Any issues with our fence are always handled by our nationwide network of skilled technicians, because Mother Nature must never be allowed to jeopardize the security of your livelihood.
