On the up: Boon Edam streamlines office entry

The company is automating access and elevator use in high-rise buildings with security gates that tap into Schindler smart technology to create a seamless flow of people

In association with
Boon Edam's Lifeline Speedlane Swing security gates manage and channel the flow of people entering and moving around a building.

With buildings becoming bigger and increasingly dynamic, faster more accessible services such as floor-level security systems and lifts are crucial for avoiding congestion. Improving a building's navigation helps ensure authorised users are able to move around a space efficiently.

The development of 'integrated lift destination' technology is helping to dramatically improve this process by automating the journey from building entry to lift access and use. Schindler PORT4Mini and the Lifeline Speedlane Swing are two access-control products that aim to do just that. 

How lift destination technology works

In order to access a lift, users are authorised at a bank of Lifeline Speedlane Swing security gates. These are equipped with Schindler PORT4Mini technology, which authenticates users via a credential check. Credentials are commonly stored on a pass or token that holds data for that individual, but Schindler technology also makes use of mobile phone applications and smart technology.

When the token has been authorised at the speed gate, the integrated system communicates with the user data. The destination technology analyses what floor the individual works on, their requirements, what lifts are free to use, the destination of the lift and much more. The data collection then sends the appropriate lift down to the requested floor level. The installation of integrated lift destination technology can be flexible and, depending on the chosen design, the display on the speed gate will show the user which lift they need to proceed to.

Seamless and secure elevator destination control

The goal of lift destination technology is to get authorised building users from A to B as quickly and safely as possible. It is perfect for busy corporate offices and  high-rise buildings. The technology offers faster, more secure navigation for building users, a reduction in energy consumption and an increase in building efficiency, potentially requiring less lift installations and a reduction in overall building costs.

Designed to integrate directly within Boon Edam's Lifeline Speedlane Swing security gates, the Schindler technology authorises users to enter the main building as well as automatically calling their lift to their level and programmed floor destination.

Access control products are already a successful solution for detecting unauthorised entry and, because speed gates check credential authentication prior to entry, building owners and security managers can feel confident that integrated lift destination systems only allow authorised users to access floors.
