Using the latest technology on security

In the world of today, technology has advanced significantly. There are advanced technology features that work well in securing the storage facilities. Self Storage Yishun facilities use surveillance cameras which deter any criminals from accessing the storage facilities. Surveillance cameras are operational 24/7 ensuring that security is tight. Also, our storage facility has incorporated motion sensors and keypad entry to each storage unit. This added security feature helps detect any abnormal movement within the storage facility, which then triggers an alarm that alerts the authorities. In addition, with keypad access, it is impossible for anyone to access your valuables, unlike the old lock and key system where burglars can just break the padlock and access your belongings. Also, storage facilities use sliding gates and electric fences to boost the security of the storage facility.
