Looking for the ultimate offsite storage solution? Be the wise man and keep your treasured belongings at Vault@268.
Living in Singapore – renowned as one of the safest cities in the world – homeowners may find it easy to be complacent when it comes to matters concerning security. There is, however, a significant difference between a city that enjoys low crime rates and one that’s absolutely crime-free. If you own irreplaceable items that are cherished for their personal or monetary value, it is wise to anticipate the worst-case scenario (think Jodie Foster in Panic Room).
Instead of keeping your valuables at home where they’re vulnerable to house invaders and even fires, consider storing them at Vault@268. A joint venture with Ngee Ann Development Pte. Ltd. – the landlord of 268 Orchard Road – it is the first private vault in Singapore that lets individuals and businesses rent its 2,000 fully automated safe-deposit boxes. For the benefit of the wise man who knows what’s best for his treasures, EX highlights three reasons why Vault@268 is the ultimate offsite storage solution in Singapore.
Convenient central location
If you find distance a hassle and the biggest deterrence to safekeeping your valuables in an external facility, you’ll be glad to know that Vault@268 enjoys a prime and central location along 268 Orchard Road. Fancy having coffee at nearby Paragon shopping mall or catching a movie at Cineleisure Orchard after depositing your item?
Easy accessibility 24/7
Unlike most banks in Singapore with fixed operating hours, Vault@268 lets you access your safe-deposit box 24 hours a day, seven days a week with no staff present. This is because robots dispense the boxes, sparing you the hassle of having to deal with people or institutions and sidestepping the inconvenient formalities of needing bank personnel to unlock doors.
Vault@268 uses technology that has been perfected for the past 20 years and is now adopted by several European banks. Housed within a 1,500squarefoot facility with thick concrete walls, the rooms at this vault facility contain nothing more than a kiosk and dispenser. Accessing each room and safe-deposit box sees you going through a four-step identity authentication system that involves:
- Gaining entry using a security card and biometric identification
- Keying in a PIN to access the safe-deposit box (made by Swedish security systems leader Gunnebo)
- Dispensing of safe-deposit box by a robot
- Locking up your safe-deposit box with a personal key and having it returned by the robot
