Founded in 2003, OpenTech Alliance is a leading provider of open software platforms, innovative products, and 24/7 services that help self-storage owners work smarter, connect with tenants, simplify operations, and grow their business. For nearly 17 years, OpenTech has worked to partner with and support self-storage owners and operators – with custom solutions designed and available exclusively for the self-storage industry. With a commitment to doing things right and providing an open interface for all technology solutions, the company’s flagship brand INSOMNIACTM has become an integral part of the self-storage industry.

OpenTech developed an access control solution in 2017 to address the challenges associated with standard, PC-based systems including updated security, warranty, installation, and support. INSOMNIAC CIA (Centralized Intelligent Access) gives storage operators total control of a single or thousands of properties, with proprietary cloud-based technology that isn’t subject to never-ending software updates and will continue to operate even if your Internet connection goes down. Managers and owners can gain insights into renter behaviors and streamline business operations with predictive maintenance triggers with real-time data visualization, alerts, and reporting from the OpenTech IoE Control Center (accessible from any browser, tablet, or mobile device). The Storage Genie mobile tenant app is included with every CIA system to enhance the tenant experience with hands-free secure access.

Backed by OpenTech’s Exclusive Lifetime Protection – which includes hardware, lightning and power surges, unlimited telephone and technical support as well as software subscription and updates – CIA is listed to Underwriters Laboratory specification UL294 for access control and tested to withstand surges to 20,000 volts and 10,000 Amps. Having revolutionized access control for the self-storage industry, INSOMNIAC CIA has quickly become a preferred access control solution for operators and installers alike.
