The Power of Automation in Self Storage

In recent years, automation has become a driving force in various industries, transforming the way businesses operate and enhancing efficiency. One industry which benefits from automation is self storage. Traditionally viewed as a low-tech sector, self storage facilities are now embracing automation to streamline operations, improve customer experience, and stay ahead in an increasingly competitive market. In this article, we explore the incredible potential of automation in self storage, how it is revolutionizing the industry and the reasons behind Control Space investment in state of the art technology.


  1. Enhanced Security: Automation has brought about significant advancements in security measures within self storage facilities. State-of-the-art access control systems utilize technologies such as facial recognition, and digital locks to ensure that only authorized individuals can enter the premises. These systems not only enhance security but also provide an added layer of convenience for customers, as they no longer need to carry physical keys or access codes. At the end of the day, customers only need to bring their phone and access the storage with Control Space app.
  2. Efficient Operations: Automating various aspects of self storage operations has revolutionized the efficiency and convenience for both facility owners and customers. E-rental allows renters to complete transactions independently, such as renting a unit, making payments, and updating their account information. This minimizes the need for staff involvement in routine tasks, allowing them to focus on providing personalized customer service and addressing more complex issues.
  3. Streamlined Communication: Automation has revolutionized communication channels between self storage facilities and customers. Online portals, mobile applications, whatsapp enable customers to easily access information about their units, make reservations, and communicate with facility staff. Automated reminders can be sent for payment due dates, move-out notices, or upcoming promotions, keeping customers informed and engaged.

The adoption of automation in self storage is poised to continue its rapid growth, as technology advances and businesses seek ways to improve operational efficiency. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms are likely to play an even greater role in optimizing operations, predicting customer needs, enabling proactive maintenance and superior customer service. Additionally, advancements in robotics and smart storage solutions will enhance security, accessibility, and convenience for customers.

Automation is revolutionizing the self storage industry, empowering facility owners to deliver a superior customer experience while improving operational efficiency. From enhanced security measures to streamlined operations and improved communication channels, automation has transformed the way self storage facilities operate. As the industry continues to evolve, embracing automation will be crucial for staying competitive and meeting the growing demands of modern customers. Self storage is no longer confined to the realm of physical locks and keys; it has entered a new era of convenience, efficiency, and innovation through the power of automation.
