Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
When we think of the future, we imagine robots, voice activated technology and biometric recognition playing a role in our everyday lives. It has arrived in South Florida with the construction of RoboVault, the first high-tech robotic storage facility of its kind in the world.
RoboVault is a fully automated robotic container retrieval system that safely stores valuables ranging in size from exotic automobiles to precious artwork and other priceless items. Its unique combination of extraordinary storage capabilities and high-tech security features distinguishes RoboVault from all previous storage facilities.
RoboVault developer, Marvin Chaney, is a futurist. He envisioned RoboVault by anticipating the needs of those living in and visiting South Florida. Chaney, has developed self-storage facilities for over 25 years, first in Detroit and then in Florida. With the help of Westfalia Systems, Inc., the German company which produced RoboVault's advanced robotics technology, Chaney embarked on creating the most revolutionary storage facility of our time.
What makes RoboVault so revolutionary?
1. RoboVault is designed to stand up to anything thrown its way - nature or manmade.
The building itself boasts a solid concrete roof, solid concrete and steel reinforced tilt-up wall panel exterior for maximum strength and stability and double pane hurricane impact glass. As a result, the exterior of RoboVault is designed to withstand Category 5 hurricanes, with winds up to 200 mph.
2. RoboVault can think.
With Human Machine Interface (HMI), a means by which users can interact with the computer system to create specific commands, RoboVault can quickly respond to security issues and perform rapid diagnostics.
3. RoboVault can create its own energy.
RoboVault's emergency back-up generator can support the entire building with 100% back-up of electrical base for building safety and HVAC for a "business as usual" environment for up to ten days after loss of local service.
4. RoboVault can morph better than a Transformer©.
Storage containers are made of structural steel mesh that allows for proper air circulation and fire safety codes. There are 456 in total ranging from 5x5 , 5x10, 10x10, 15x10 and non-subdivided modules of 20x10 and free-standing positions for larger items, including exotic cars.
5. RoboVault knows who is there at all times.
Its unprecedented combination of technology includes:
*24/7 security monitoring
*Heart beat detection
6. RoboVault is as safe as a Swiss bank.
RoboVault has an adjacent room specifically for safety deposit boxes. The space implements all of the same security measures as the storage, plus a few extra perks!
*Private entrance for clients to drive into the building and access the safe deposit box through another, privately monitored interior entrance.
*Clients also have full access to their safety deposits boxes 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
7. RoboVault is cultured.
The facility also boasts a wine storage facility on the ground floor. The space allows discriminating collectors to incrementally expand their personal cellar capacity.
*RoboVault's wine storage adheres to a strict climate controlled environment meeting wine industry standards of temperature and humidity, providing a storage temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit and maintaining proper humidity levels at 65-70 percent.
*The space also eliminates all natural light and minimizes vibration to eliminate settling disruptions and make sure each wine stays at its best.
