I – Security Procedures:
Tenant must use access code when entering the facility, even if the gate (or building door, if your unit is in the extended-hours areas) is already open. The access code not only opens the gate but also shunts the alarm on your storage unit. To prevent activating the alarm, you must enter your code prior to entering the yard.
If you have an indoor unit then you must use the door lock sets. Relocking these doors is crucial to maintaining access control. Properly securing your storage unit and everyone else’s units depends on ensuring that only people who are supposed to be in an area are the ones in that area. This is can only be done by locking the halldoors.
You must use the locksets provided to you by the Company. A great deal of research went into selecting the best possible locking system for your unit and it is therefore crucial that you use the locks provided to you and in the manner intended. Use both the disk-detainer cylinder lock and the disklock provided by the company. If your unit is found without one of these locks, it will be replaced and the cost will be charged to your account. If a different lock is found it will be removed and a lock cutting fee will be charged in addition to the cost of the lock. Because of the time and difficulty involved in removing the cylinder lock if the key is lost or in the event of an emergency, et cetera, all cylinder locks are master-keyed. The disklock is not master-keyed and you are given the only keys to this lock.
You must enter your access code in the exit keypad prior to leaving the facility. This rearms the alarm for your storage unit.

Units may only be accessed during approved hours (Gated Units: 7:00A.M.-7:00P.M.*, last entry at 6:45P.M. ~ Extended Hours Units: 4:30A.M.-11:00P.M.). Entry or continued presence outside of these hours is trespassing. You will be removed from the property and may be given notice to vacate.
