From single-story facilities surrounded by cornfields to urban properties scattered among high-rise towers, self-storage operations must employ strategies and equipment to deter crime and, if necessary, investigate incidents when they occur. As technology advances, the number and quality of security tools increases, giving operators a wealth of options for property protection.
Inside Self-Storage (ISS) has released a free report, "Self-Storage Security Technology: Tools That Keep Facilities Safe, Now and in the Future." The report synthesizes ISS survey data with insights from industry experts and operators to reveal details on the tools available now, ideas for effective facility-security strategies, and cutting-edge security products that will shape the security philosophy in the future. Topics include:
- Effectiveness and deterrence: Which products are most effective at preventing crime?
- Perception and marketing: Which products influence consumers the most?
- Facility-manager role: How does a live person fit into the security strategy?
Underwritten by Sentinel Systems Corp., the report is available for download at www.insideselfstorage.com/reports.
