Smart buildings technology reaches the self-storage industry

Sept. 21, 2021
BETCO Inc., Janus International Group, Inc. and its subsidiary Nokē Smart Entry have combined efforts to create what the partners bill as "the first ever" facility construction bundle for self-storage smart buildings.

BETCO Inc., a specialist in the design and construction of custom self-storage buildings, on Sept. 7 announced the launch of what the firm contends is among the self-storage industry’s very first smart building technology bundles.

The BETCO smart building design integrates award-winning products and technology solutions from BETCO with those of Janus International Group, Inc. and its Nokē® Smart Entry subsidiary.

The foundation of the smart building design on offer is a skillfully crafted custom BETCO building facility featuring roll-up doors from Janus that are known for their ease of installation, operation and maintenance.

Janus International is a top global manufacturer and supplier of turn-key self-storage, commercial and industrial building systems, including roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, re-locatable storage units and facility and door automation technologies. The Janus team operates out of several U.S. locations and six locations internationally.

The BETCO smart building offering for self-storage facilities is completed with robust technology and security products and integrations from the Janus Nokē Smart Entry division. Such innovative solutions include the Nokē smart locks and Nokē smart keypads, as well as smart camera and thermostat integration through the Nokē Smart Entry platform.

BETCO’s president, Shannon Marshall, commented: "[This] trifecta of award-winning products will permanently change the standard for class-A facilities in the self-storage industry by offering more robust and comprehensive solutions to the self-storage market. Owner operators with smart buildings will have the ability to generate more income through the complimentary combination of premium product offerings and solutions."

BETCO on the move

News of the BETCO smart building launch comes on the heels of the BETCO team receiving the 2021 Inside Self Storage (ISS) Best of Business award for 'Best Development Consulting' in the industry.

Founded in 1984, BETCO serves its clientele of self-storage developers across the world with turn-key building solutions to create custom self-storage buildings "of every shape and size. While other self-storage building providers offer piecemeal products and services, BETCO’s craftsman buildings are skillfully designed, manufactured and artfully constructed from the slab up," contends the company's statement.

BETCO president Marshall concluded, “For more than 36 years, we’ve remained committed to delivering engineered and technology-driven products and service to our customers. That’s why we’re delighted to again bring new innovations into the BETCO offering. We’ll be able to offer more inclusive solutions to self-storage developers, owners and users.”
