To gain access to the secure cycle unit, press the fob against the access panel next to the door of the facility. This will trigger the magnetic lock to open and allow access to the storage unit, the same is required on exit. If the door begins to close from the inside you’ll need to scan your fob twice on the reader once to stop then again to re-open.
