Sensorberg implements first project in the UK for Attic Self Storage
PropTech Sensorberg, a specialist in real estate digitalisation and smart storage solutions, has equipped Attic Self Storage's newest 2,500 sq m self-storage facility in Marylebone, London, with technical infrastructure and software for digital access control.
This is the first project that Sensorberg is implementing in the UK.
Attic Self Storage is an independent self-storage company based in London. The company currently operates three storage locations in the greater London area, with a fourth under construction. Their offer includes flexible storage units ranging from simple letterboxes to 50 m² storage space. Customers have round-the-clock access to their units, which are equipped with modern security systems, all year round. In 2016, Attic Self Storage was the first operator in the UK to offer a complete online booking, check-in and account management system and to implement virtual reality solutions in the self-storage area.
The installation of Sensorberg took place during the Covid-19 lockdown to enable Attic’s customers to open their respective units in an entirely contact-free way, flexibly and easily around the clock via their smartphone. The door and storage box opening via smartphone not only works online, but also offline via Bluetooth. This minimises the risk of failure. Similarly, the operator can make their administrative processes more effective and efficient by digitalising the access management. All digital features are controlled via the Sensorberg IoT platform. In addition to door and storage box opening, this platform can be expanded at any time to include other applications such as temperature or lighting control.
Stefan Scheuerle, CEO of Sensorberg, says: "The collaboration with Attic Self Storage enables us to enter one of the most important real estate markets in Europe. The UK is a pioneer in digitalisation. The success of Attic Self Storage is also based on the use of future-oriented technologies. With our smart building technology, we are making a significant contribution to the development of the product range and the satisfaction of Attic‘s customers."
Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, CEO of Attic Self Storage, adds: “Prior to undertaking the decision to work with Sensorberg, we conducted a detailed review of the existing options available for door automation in the UK Self Storage market. We felt Sensorberg’s technological solutions were best in class, and we have been delighted with the way in which the product works, as have our staff and customers. The service and support we received from Sensorberg throughout our first install was also first class, and we very much look forward to working with them on our future projects.“
