Secure Storage

What does secure storage mean to you? What does secure self storage look like at storage facilities across the country? Do all storage spaces offer the same level of security? We will take a look at those questions in this article by Mouser Self Storage in Alvarado, Texas. Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information.

What does secure storage mean?

In its simplest terms, secure self storage means that your belongings, your possessions, your valuables, are safe from theft, safe from vandalism, and safe from Mother Nature’s wrath.  Of course, self storage, at its core, is a place to store items you have no other place for, but implied in that contract is the safety factor. Whether it be car storage, RV storage, boat storage units, or simply storage of your summer patio furniture, you have a realistic expectation that the storage company is going to keep those things safe.

What most people do not know, when they rent a storage unit, is that not all storage facilities are the same with regards to security.

The four level of secure storage?

We break down storage safety into four separate components:

  • A fenced perimeter with only one main access point into and out of the storage facility.
  • Video security monitoring
  • On-site management providing “heels to the ground” security.
  • Individualized access key cards for every customer.

In our professional opinion, if one of those four is missing, customer possessions are not truly secure.  A fence is a deterrent, but it is not the only security solution. Fences can be climbed over.  Video monitoring is nice, but there is a human factor involved, and humans are fallible.  On-site management is outstanding but, again, humans can make mistakes.  And individualized access key cards are outstanding, but anything computerized can be hacked. Those are industry truths which few people talk about, but they are facts.  Only when all four levels of security are present can you say, with 99% certainty, that items are secure.

Something extra from Mouser Self Storage.

We have taken it one extra step. We have installed NOKE for added security on storage units. What is NOKE?

NOKE One Smart Entry is a Bluetooth electronic lock that works with IOS and Android phones. NOKE uses an encrypted algorithm to ensure transmissions are encrypted and secure so hackers can’t access your belongings.

Earlier we mentioned 99% certainty that your possessions are safe.  NOKE changes that to 99.5%.

Why not 100% certainty? We have learned, in this business, to never say never.  But we are darned close to 100%, as close as is possible in the self-storage industry.
