Security Technology In Self-Storage

Share

These days, some or even most facilities for self storage Leeds have been reported to have problems concerning their security technology and access. There was a past report wherein keypads of access gates have been vandalized and the cameras weren’t even working as they were covered in dirt and spider webs. Even more startling was the fact that these cameras produced faded images and had loop issues.

Technicians usually have to advise the operators of the facility to actually overhaul the whole security system and provide maintenance plans to prevent future complications with the system.

Regular maintenance and review of the security systems would save a lot of time for the self-storage facilities. And, as we all know, security is one of the more important factors in choosing self-storage facilities as it would prevent theft and break-ins. Having a well-maintained security system restores confidence in the property and the facility and will attract future investors and clients.

So, to improve security in the facility, here are a few tips:

Regular Maintenance

As previously mentioned, regularly maintaining the security system improves confidence on the facility. To implement a regular maintenance, it’s best to have a maintenance plan.

First of all, owners should check the overall state of the security system to know whether some parts need repair or if the whole system needs to be replaced. After the check, the repairs need to be done or the whole system overhaul needs to be done by a trusted security company.

The plan should be drafted to fit the preference of the business based on the operation of your whole security system. Not only should it address tasks that need to be done annually, but also it should actually address every little task or maintenance to be done on the system on a day to day or a week to week basis.

Inspection dates should never be forgotten on the maintenance plan. Better calendar those dates to keep track of them. Managers should also be aware and responsibly assigned with some maintenance tasks and duties so that they would also be able to keep track of the plan.

For video cameras, make sure that all cameras are functioning and are displaying clear video quality. Better to check every LCD monitor that these cameras broadcast to in the security office.
