Elevator Security Systems: Keeping your staff and residents safe

Elevators are the fastest way to get around in most buildings, but that doesn’t mean they’re safe. Elevator security is essential for offices and residential apartments, especially if you have employees or residents who may be at risk from crime. Elevator access control can also help you keep track of people using your elevators, making it easier to identify those who don’t belong there.

What is elevator access control?

An elevator security system is a system that is used to protect employees and residents from crime within their building. Elevator security systems typically consist of access control, which is the process of controlling who has access to the elevator, and video surveillance, which is the process of monitoring what is happening inside and around the elevator.

Elevator security systems can help keep employees and residents safe by preventing criminals from accessing the elevator, allowing employers or property managers to see what is happening in and around the elevator, and providing a way for law enforcement to investigate crimes that occur in elevators. Elevator security systems are becoming increasingly common as more people realize the benefits they provide.

Why do I need elevator security?

Elevator crime is on the rise, making it important to install a reliable access control security solution that protects employees and residents from crimes such as theft and break-ins.

Elevators are often seen as easy targets for criminals because they offer a quick way to get in and out of a building, so it is important to have a system in place that deters criminal activity.

Here are some points to help keep your elevators secure:

  • Elevator security systems should be equipped with access control to restrict unauthorized access.
  • Employees and residents should be aware of the emergency evacuation procedures for elevators.
  • In case of an emergency, elevator security systems must be able to quickly respond and evacuate people from the building.
  • Elevator security systems should be regularly inspected and maintained

Braxos integration

Keri systems now integrates with Braxos and uses destination dispatch. Destination dispatch elevator control is a system that integrates elevator control with access control. This system allows for selective elevator service based on the destination of each passenger. When a passenger enters an elevator, they are asked to enter their destination floor. The elevator then calculates the most efficient route to that floor, taking into account the current traffic and passenger loads.
