Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) hopes the system, connected to fences around parks and wildlife sanctuaries, will help reduce poaching by up to 90%. When an animal interferes with the fence or a person tries to tear down the fence, the alarm produces a very loud sound which is relayed to the security switchboard as an SMS message and shows the location.
