FARMER Bruce Crafter travelled from the Wimmera for the Farm Security and Farmers Health Expo in Bendigo.

He was impressed by the technology he encountered, but disappointed that telecommunications companies were not in attendance.

Though Mr Crafter was looking to invest in security cameras, he said he was mindful of the cost of the internet service the system would need to draw upon.

Its the affordability of that data, the farmer said.

Its okay having it [security cameras], but youve got to be able to have those costs.

Having attended the expo, he was all the more motivated to find out how much hed be charged for that connectivity.

Justine McKenzie, of Anyday Security, said the demand for security cameras was rising in the Bendigo area.

The prospect of warmer weather, vacations and a perceived increase in thefts and break-ins were possible factors influencing that trend.

Mrs McKenzie said police had also been encouraging peopleto look into options such as CCTV.

The two-dayexpo, at Bendigo Stadium, concludes at 3pm on Friday.
