West Country Tech in a nutshell

Established in 2017 we are a professional and trusted Devon based company who ae passionate about providing farms and rural business with their technology needs, from farm security and livestock monitoring to providing faster 4G internet, Wi-Fi and networking systems.


In the last two years we have built a strong reputation and gained trust amongst the rural community becoming the leading provider of farm security and technological systems in the South West. We attribute this to the fact that we specialise solely in providing technology within the agricultural field giving us a deeper understanding of what exactly is needed within this rural setting.


We are incredibly proud of our company and like to be transparent about our work showcasing our installations on social media for all to see, so you can get an honest and real insight of who we are and what we do. Our regular updates often see us getting covered in mud and cow muck to ensure we get the right positions on our cameras etc. We have become well equipped to working on muddy farms and our daily uniform has become wellies and overalls!


Our mission within the rural community is twofold:


We increase security with cameras…

Rural crime is on the increase and it can be harder to tackle than urban crime due to being so isolated. We deliver the finest security solutionsand our state-of-the-art CCTV cameras are an invaluable asset to farmers, landowners and rural entrepreneurs in protecting people, livestock, property and assets from potential threats. We assess your security needs and design and install your system providing you with monitoring and aftercare.


We lower the workload with technology…

Our livestock monitoringcameras allow you to keep an eye on your stock remotely and are especially useful during calving, lambing or foaling season. They save you time and money ensuring you are there only when needed and not at all hours of the day and night. We will set them up in the prime position so you can rest assured you know exactly what is going on at all times.


Frustratingly, 60% of farms have slow internet due to their location. Our Wi-Fi and networking solutions allow us to provide internet access in those difficult to reach areas of your farm and our equipment is powerful and performs excellently in a rural setting. With technology advancing so quickly we want our customers stay on top and save valuable time with faster 4G internet.


We do understand that each and every one of our customers’ needs are different and we work hard to offer bespoke solutions for individual circumstances to make your life a little easier and your work more productive.


While the majority of our installations take place on working farms or for rural businesses, some interesting examples of our work include The South West Dairy Development Centre. This is Agri-Epicentre’s dairy farm of the future that was designed, built and operated to provide a platform to test and demonstrate new and emerging technologiesto generate economic growth in the farming world. We were commissioned to install top of the range security cameras to protect these valuable resources.


Rothamsted Research is a world-leading, non-profit research centre that focuses on strategic agricultural science to the benefit of farmers and society worldwide. We were privileged to install our calving camera allowing 24-hour detailed monitoring of their calving sheds.
