Best Security for a Storage Unit

Security


When protecting your personal belongings, finding a secure storage unit is essential. Before you book your unit, there are a few things to consider. Ask your local storage unit facility if they provide these security measures at their storage unit. 1. Fully Manned 24/7 CCTV Surveillance CCTV surveillance is one of the most important things to look for in a storage facility, as it will allow you to see what's going on around your unit 24 hours a day. If you have any concerns about damage or theft from another customer or their belongings, you can review CCTV footage to see if anything happened while you weren't there. CCTV coverage should cover all entrances, exits, and corridors leading up to each unit. Suppose your unit is in an open area without direct access to CCTV cameras. In that case, air conditioning units often obscure camera views so that no one can see inside your unit without entering through an entrance.

Adequate Lighting If you've ever walked around your neighborhood at night, you know how dark it can be. It's even darker when it's inside a building or area that doesn't have adequate lighting. This darkness can cause problems for customers and staff members who work late at the facility. For example, if someone wanted to break into your unit, they could easily do so without anyone noticing until it was too late. That is especially true if your access code has been compromised by someone who knows your personal information or has access to it through hacking into your accounts online or by phone. The best way to ensure that your properties are safe is through adequate lighting throughout the property. Not only will this help keep people out of storage units ...
