Relay based elevators
This type of elevator is used in smaller, or legacy, setups. Here, the user needs to press the button of the floor the user wants to reach inside the elevator car. With the Kisi elevator solution, the (Kisi controlled) buttons are initially disabled and the user cannot send the elevator to any of the access control restricted floors.
To gain access, the user has to present their credential – e.g. card or phone – at the Kisi Reader. The Kisi Reader then communicates with the Kisi Controller to enable the buttons of the floors the user is authorized to reach. The user may then press the button to send the elevator car to the desired floor. If the user's credentials are valid and at least one floor is authorized, the reader will present positive feedback, otherwise, the reader will present negative feedback.
- Every floor has a button inside the elevator car
- To press a (Kisi controlled) button, the user needs to present valid credentials to the Kisi Reader inside the elevator car
- On positive feedback, the user may press the button of the desired floor to send the elevator car there
Please note that depending on the elevator make and model, buttons may or may not light up once enabled and/or pressed.
