Types Of Proactive Security Solutions For Self-storage

Here is the following proactive security for your self-storage:

Fences for self-storage

With security fences and gated entrances, self-storage units and their contents are kept safe and secure at the facility. Many self-storage facilities use electronic passcodes that require facility management and unit occupants to produce unique codes to get entry to the facility (and get past the gate). The presence of protective fencing enhances the curb appeal of self-storage facilities.

Steel fencing comes in a variety of heights ranging from 3 to 8 feet, and the design of the top determines a lot of the distinctions. Extra rails/pickets in storage facilities may vary in length from 3 to 6 inches, allowing for a wide range of fence heights. In the last tale, the guy impaled by the steel fence had pickets that were more than 12 inches tall and a few inches thick.

Intrusion Alarms

Intrusion alarms are the best additional security system. Why? Some thieves are good enough to climb over, break through, and cut through. So, intrusion alarms can detect any alarming movement around the facility,

Here is how the systems work:
1) Detecting any vibration or tilting
2) Climb over
3) Unusual lifting of gates

Therefore, any suspicious activity is detected by the system. Then the system will notify you together with the location of the intruder.

Gate With Access Control

The self-storage units and the contents within are protected by gates and security fences, which are two of the most crucial components of a storage facility. Many security gates have an electronic passcode that requires self-storage facility management and unit tenants to present unique codes in order to get access to the facility (and get past the gate). Protective fences also improve the curb attractiveness of self-storage facilities.
Gates are the best defense against crime and unwanted visitors. Gates will also help increase the value of your property. Most self-storage has gates with access control.
Therefore, a type of gate must be carefully planned and laid out. 

Here are takeaways on planning your gate structure:

1) It must be easy but professionally maintained
2) Protected by security alarms
3) Secured by cameras
4) Well-lit

Houston self-storage facilities use gate and unit access control systems installed by NEXLAR. If you are looking for a security company for self-storage, we can help.

Here are the following types of access control we can install for self-storage:

2) Proximity Card
The card has a unique number. You can give this to your tenants through their access control. The card is detected if placed on the reader machine. Then once validated, it authorizes access.
