Turn Self Storage Foot Traffic Data into Increased Rentals

How many times do customers visit your office or more importantly how many times do potential customers come to the office only to find that the door is locked? With over 46% of all customers renting for one year or longer, missing a single renter can have an impact on your bottom line.
INSOMNIAC™ SmartDoor provides owners and operators the ability to gain insights and actionable data on when customers visit the office and when potential customers attempt to visit the office. Sensors are mounted on the office front door and record when a person comes up to the front door and when the door opens. SmartDoor tracks the date, time and number of times that the office door opens  but more importantly how many times (and what time of day) someone comes to the front door and the office door is closed.
