If you have invested a lot of money into your livestock or crops, then I'm sure they are. I know someone who grows ginseng and put a lot of money into getting started. Every one of his plants is embedded with a special microchip and if anyone digs it up, the smart alarm goes off.

I use a smart alarm around my home, my greenhouses, and my retail shop. The peace of mind is worth it to me. The system detects fires, broken windows, water leaks, and other things as well.

Is the livestock worth it? A cost/benefit analysis will give you the technical answer, but knowing your own situation and surroundings will fill in the blanks.

Does your alarm in greenhouse has humidity sensor?
I use Sensaphone and it detects humidity levels and sends an alert when the humidity goes out of my upper and lower limits, but with all of these systems there's a lot of piecemealing and it can get expensive before you know it. I like Sensaphone, but I wish there was one system that included everything. Instead of that, you'll need to buy the main piece, then an infrared motion sensor, and so on. I've seen some clever systems that were DIY with Raspberry Pi, but I'm not clever enough to construct something like that. Which smart alarms have you looked at?
