Elevator monitoring
July 27 2023
Elevator monitoring
          I received an email advertisement from an outfit named Kings lll Emergency Communications, located in Texas promoting elevator monitoring by the alarm industry as another way to increase RMR.   The email invited me to become a Kings lll dealer, which of course isn’t for me, but might be for you.  Elevator monitoring isn’t new or novel, and in fact must have been something the alarm industry has been doing for a long time.  I know that because a Standard Elevator Monitoring Agreement has been available on the K&K contract order website,  for a long time.  This Elevator Monitoring Agreement covers commercial elevator monitoring, including voice and video.
          So if you become a Kings lll dealer or use equipment manufactured by others, be sure to get and use the Elevator Monitoring Agreement
          Here are parts of the email I received from Kings lll.  If anyone has experience with them please let us know, pro or con.
          “It's Never Been Easier To Monetize Elevator Phone Monitoring,
Are You Taking Advantage?
With POTs replacement strategies being implemented in buildings across the US, a trend has developed in the elevator industry which creates massive opportunity for life-safety integrators like you. The internet based solutions that are cutting costs for businesses across the country have been proven to not cut it for emergency devices, such as elevator phones. Cellular has proven to be the most reliable, compliant and cost effective solution for replacing emergency phone lines.
This is where Kings III can help you take advantage of the gap in the elevator industry. Kings III Dealers can utilize our purpose-built cellular equipment to provide dial tone to emergency elevator phones, capturing the RMR that was typically lost to telecom giants. The best part? You don't even have to step foot in an elevator cab to increase your monthly revenue.
How Easy Could It Really Be?
• The EC-1000 connects straight to the ring & tip in the RJ-11 telco jack
• Direct Dial Override eliminates reprogramming elevator phone (no work in the cab)
• Kings III provides the 4G VoLTE SIM card for cellular connectivity
• Meets strict A17.1 elevator communication code requirements
• Non-proprietary device, works with any existing emergency phone hardware”
