Updated Security for Self-Storage Facilities
As you prepare to update the security at your storage facility, there are critical points to keep in mind while doing so. This will help make your company as safe as possible for your customers.

Lighting. The facility should be well-lit. This way cameras are able to capture clear footage and customers can clearly see who is around them.

Security cameras. The cameras should have a high definition that makes it easy to see people and the space the camera is in.

Locks. The locks on the facility doors and storage units need to be properly installed and working for increased security.

Parking lot. Security is not limited to just inside the facility, but is necessary outside, too. This means installing bright lights and cameras in the parking lot, as well. If there is a coded gate for after-hours entry, make sure that it works properly.

In addition to these steps, you can also consider hiring a security guard for safety. This way someone is on the premises and can keep it safe in real time. The presence of a security guard very likely deters a person from attempting to commit a crime.
