Security Tips for your Storage Unit in Sioux City

When you store your belongings in a storage unit, you want to be confident that your belongings will still be there the next time you check. It’s an unfortunate fact of life that storage units are very tempting to thieves because the chances that the person renting the unit will stop by soon aren’t that great.

Many people leave things in storage for weeks or even months before they go back to the unit, and that gives others plenty of time to sneak in. However, you can use these secure self-storage tips to make the unit more secure and give your belongings a very good chance of staying safe.

Onsite Employees in Sioux City Self-Storage Facilities

Most storage units have an onsite office with employees who are there for most of the day. Some facilities even have an employee living onsite, which is even better. Avoid facilities where there are no onsite employees or security guards because the presence of a person who can watch the units and monitor security cameras is a huge deterrent to thieves.

Surveillance Cameras Recording 24 Hours a Day

Employees who have to be in the storage facility’s office can’t be everywhere, so the use of surveillance cameras across the property – both outside and inside, if the facility has a multistory building, and Noke smart entry systems at all entry and exit points – are essential for keeping your belongings safe. And, you want those cameras to be recording 24 hours a day.

It’s not enough for them to merely broadcast video to monitors in the office. You need the cameras to record so that, if it looks like there was an attempt to get into your unit, there is a record of who was where on the property. The police can use the video to help identify suspects and prevent further attempts.
