Q. How do individual locker alarms work and why are they important?
A: Each storage Unit at Sarnia Self Storage has its own alarm, wired into the overall security and monitoring system. When a customer visits Sarnia Self Storage, they enter their own PIN at a keypad, to access the facility. The security system then disarms the alarm on the applicable unit associated with that PIN. A customer then proceeds to their unit, unlocks their own padlock and opens their door. Upon exiting the facility, customers re-enter their PIN at a keypad, and the alarm is reactivated. This is another additional layer of security to help us keep your belongings safe.
