Security Systems for Storage Units

If you manage or own storage units then you know there are unique challenges related to security. You’re securing commercial buildings, surface lots, access points, plus lots of personal property. At the most basic level, storage units require locks and security cameras but there are other tools and safeguards to help you to control theft, vandalism, tailgating and squatting in your storage units.

How to Choose the Right Security System for Your Storage Unit Facility

A security system may be the single greatest investment for your storage units. After all, it provides a visual deterrent for crime, and in a way acts as marketing for potential customers. When customers see that your self storage facility has security cameras, lighting, keypads, and a fence, they feel comfortable doing business with you. 

If you’re thinking about a security system for a new self storage facility, but have questions about what’s necessary for  your security and access control systems, then this post is perfect for you. Here are the most common components of a perfect security solution for storage units:

Gates & Fencing

A physical barrier can be very beneficial to the overall security of your storage units. There are several gate types that are popular for storage units including slide gates, barrier arms, swing gates, vertical pivot gates. Zoning permissions along with the design and space of your site will help determine which gate or fence will serve you best.

Keypads

If you have a physical barrier like a gate or a fence then the keypads will allow users to get in and out of gates. Some storage facilities require a code to enter and exit so that tailgaters won’t be able to access your property undetected. Keypads are the first line of defense to truly secure your storage units and limit tenant access to other units.

 

Smart Locks & Door Alarms

Door alarms and Smart locks help secure and monitor each storage unit door. Your customers value a safe facility, but more importantly, they want to know that their individual unit is safe. Door alarms and electronic locks allow you to charge a premium because they increase the security, and therefore the perceived value of each unit at your site.

IP Security Cameras

Cameras are essential to storage units and pay for themselves by helping renters feel safe and know that their belongings are in good hands.  Cameras can also be added to keypads to identify each person entering your storage facility. There are many options for IP security cameras and the exact resolution and lense required will often times depend on the property itself. Indoor 1080p cameras can be added around the office, while the parking lot may require weatherproof cameras with a better lense. Rest assured, professional installer will help map out the ideal placement for your IP security cameras.
