SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – January 17, 2006 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc. announced today that INSOMNIAC™, the self-storage kiosk, is now available for facilities running Sentinel WinSen™ Property Manager software. The company also announced that Sentinel Systems Corporation is the latest addition to its Alliance Partner Program. The powerful combination of INSOMNIAC and Sentinel’s WinSen™ Property Manager product line means facilities can now take rentals and payments regardless of whether a manager is present.

“We’re pleased to announce INSOMNIAC is now available for Sentinel facilities,” said Jon D. Reddick, Vice President of Sentinel. “We’ve been watching the kiosk landscape unfold over the last few years and believe INSOMNIAC is the definitive self-storage kiosk leader. We know the thousands of self-storage owners who manage their facilities using Sentinel will appreciate having this great self-service option.”

“Sentinel has been a self-storage leader for over 30 years,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s CEO. “With their global reach, long history of innovation, and huge customer base, we’re frequently asked by customers to interface to WinSen™.
