Advantages of Having Smart Elevator Solutions

Construction Tech Review | Friday, December 31, 2021

The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized the elevator industry, and there are numerous advantages to employing a smart elevator system.

Fremont, CA: The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized the elevator industry over the last decade. By leveraging IoT, any elevator solution may perform proactive, condition-based analysis and predictive maintenance. Smart elevators can monitor performance, make real-time maintenance decisions, provide updated status, and advance reporting, among other things, allowing us to manage and monitor the elevator remotely. The next-generation IoT Elevator is outperforming existing elevators in terms of efficiency. People used to test the elevators manually, keep track of the records, and monitor the status. That was far too time-consuming and inefficient. Using a smart elevator system has a number of advantages.

Benefits of using smart elevator solutions are:

Maintenance prediction

A fault is an abnormality caused by the elevator's I/O pin or register value. The ML model will forecast the level of maintenance and determine which portion of the elevator needs maintenance based on the GPIO pin and generated fault. When the GPIO pin is changed, the cloud logic kicks in and generates valuable data like elevator status and errors.

Remote controlling

If the user needs to provide some commands to the elevator, such as start-stopping the elevator for a specific period, turning on/off the mainline, or running some engine rules on the elevator, the elevator will respond by using the IoT central command. It saves time and human resources to check or do things manually in this case.

Reduced downtime

If we have such fault detection tools, elevator downtime can be minimal. With the use of IoT, the user may also detect a power outage from the elevator controller and specify a rule engine that will start the elevator on backup power in the event of a power outage. Users can also track the backup power's timeout, so elevator downtime can be decreased by following that guideline.

Cost-effective

As commonly known, elevator technicians are costly. By utilizing the Internet of Things, the central elevator may be remotely managed and tested, allowing the technician cost to be leveraged to some extent. According to the scenario, the user can create rules such as only using the elevator at certain times or only using certain primary elevators, which reduces power consumption.
