Elevator operating costs: efficient stops
Weight and passenger number can have a significant impact on elevator performance. But only smart elevators know when occupancy has reached a level where new passengers are no longer an option. As part of the broader evolution of smart buildings, premise managers must:
- Determine optimal elevator occupancy in real-time
- Manage systems so that elevators no longer respond to stop requests after reaching peak occupancy
With very few exceptions, the days of an elevator attendant who exercised control over stops are long gone. Facilities managers of the 21st century are looking to improve operational efficiency and lower costs.
KPIs from elevator activity can be reviewed to better determine trends in floor access at different points of time, helping to:
- Optimize finite intra-building transportation resources based on adjustable parameters
- Limit elevator waiting time by avoiding unnecessary stops
More than a gimmick, premise managers are searching for this type of solution because it:
- Saves operational costs by limiting energy consumption related to intra-building transportation
- Increases building value by improving visitor satisfaction
- Sets a positive tone for a productive work environment
