Why Building Needs Elevator Monitoring?



Elevator is a critical system in building, it will eventually require attention that goes beyond what routine maintenance can provide. For your building to stay competitive with regard to maintaining its value and tenant confidence, you need to monitor your elevator so you know when to service an ageing system.

  • To record and address malfunctions - Every attribute of the elevator should be carefully controlled to ensure that things are working well at all times. A very fast ride can be physically detrimental to the passengers, while a very slow ride can impede traffic flow throughout the building, tempting users to overfill the elevator when they get the opportunity to use it.

  • Stop Crime - Monitoring of elevator is mainly aimed at identifying and addressing malfunctions before any damage occurs, active monitoring can also help to spot unscrupulous individuals looking to commit crimes in the elevators or even worse.

  • User safety - Elevator monitoring ensures that the elevators are operating properly at all times and that the passengers riding within them will be safe in the event that something goes wrong.

  • Customer service - Although there are different kinds of people using the elevators, it is best to optimize them for passengers who are in a hurry. Effective elevator monitoring helps to identify issues that may cause delays, such as signal delays or pranks where someone pushes every floor button and then exits, to ensure optimal and consistent elevator performance and avoid related discontent within the building.
