Each storage locker at Spaces has its own alarm, wired into the overall security and monitoring system. When a customer visits Spaces, they enter their own PIN at a keypad, to access the building. The security system then disarms the alarm on the applicable unit associated with that PIN. A customer then proceeds to his or her locker, unlocks their own padlock and opens their door. Upon exiting the building, customers re-enter their PIN at a keypad, and the alarm is reactivated. This additional layer of protection reduces further the chance of break-in and theft. As well, the mandatory use of keypads to enter and exit Spaces, provides a detailed record of who has visited the building and for how long and when.
