Self Storage Security
Providing storage unit security to give you the confidence that your property is safe.
At Big Tex Self Storage, we spared no expense in providing the best security measures to ensure that we provide our clients with a secure storage facility. Trusting us with your belongings means a lot, and we want to repay the favor by not only equipping our facility, but each storage unit with the right security features.
All Big Tex Storage locations offer state-of-the-art security equipment and measures from surveillance to controlled access. Regardless of storage unit size or storage purpose, each is closely monitored to prevent any unauthorized access.
Our storage units feature digitally controlled access to allow only authorized individuals to your unit through key code access. In addition to storage unity security, our gate system requires computerized access to enter and leave our facilities, as do our sliding glass entry doors and the elevator, which limits access to the floor the unit is rented on. Controlled access allows entry and exit activity to be monitored, to ensure that only people you trust get access to your storage unit.
Along with controlled access to our facilities, individual door alarms are in place for every storage unit, granting you added confidence your belongings are safe. Each storage unit is also monitored by our trained staff and security cameras, ensuring that someone is always in close distance in any event. In addition, our facility is equipped with an after hours alarm system managed by a monitoring service, which immediately alerts our managers if one goes off.
Defined Access Hours
To ensure the safety of our customers and their property, gate access hours are limited to 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Once access hours are over, the controlled access system is turned off and the security system is turned on. Door alarms are managed after hours by a monitoring service, which alerts managers in the event that one is triggered. Even while away from our secure storage facility, managers have the ability to view camera surveillance from their iPads and can check hallway activity and dispatch the police should a negative event occur.
While we do have regularly scheduled access hours, we understand that the moving isn't always a timely process. To make it as hassle-free as possible, we can offer customers 24-hour access the day of their move-in to help them or their movers accomplish the task at hand.
During office hours, our trained staff and on-site managers are on hand to monitor and supervise storage unit security, as well as assist you with any issues you may have. At our The Woodlands location, a special on-site resident manager ensures the facility is secure and your storage unit safe 24/7.
Our trained staff routinely monitors each of our floors in person in addition to our camera surveillance, which our managers can view at all times. In addition, our managers can also accept deliveries on your behalf and keep them in a safe location until you take receipt.
Effective security surveillance is a must at Big Tex. Each of our facilities is equipped with over 40 cameras that monitor and record on-site activity on a 24-hour basis providing us with a clear look into who is coming in and going out. Monitors on every floor provide our customers with a view of activity occurring on the current floor, the first floor, and parking area to ensure they are aware of their surroundings.
In addition, our motion-sensitive lighting alerts us of any movement on each floor and provides a precise look of all individuals in our facility. We also provide outdoor lighting for our parking lots whether you're loading or unloading at any hour during the day.
