Schindler Lifts supplied four lifts in the Datacom Building featuring secure PORT technology access control, which allows for a pre-programmed card to generate an automatic elevator assignment at the barrier.

The four lifts serving the Datacom Building were supplied and installed by Schindler Lifts.

Spokesperson for Schindler Philip Hemming says the aim was to provide a first-class passenger experience while maintaining secure access to floors.

"Our solution was to provide a system with destination control that would minimise passenger travel times to their destination and interface with the building security."

To fulfil these needs, Schindler selected its 5500 range of lifts, controlled by the company's Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal system (PORT).

With the PORT technology, the travellers' only requirement is to simply communicate their identity and required destination. The PORT technology takes care of the rest by planning and executing a seamless journey using an optimal route designed to take the shortest possible time to complete.

"The PORT system take the human interface to an entirely new level," says Hemming. "It can even anticipate needs of regular commuters, the ultimate skill of the experienced personal assistant."

Access control is a fully integrated component of the PORT technology. This means the elevators play a significant role in ensuring security in the Datacom Building building, with a prospective passenger's admission credentials being automatically and speedily checked against a central occupant database.

The secure PORT technology access control also allows for a pre-programmed card to generate an automatic elevator assignment at the barrier. By always knowing the exact requirements of a user whether it's a need for more time, differing guidance, more space, a specific cab or any relevant factors the PORT technology helps ensure that the journey delivered is customised to meet them.
