About LiftNet Monitoring and Control

What Can The IDS LiftNet Can Do For You?

  • Display elevator system status on multiple CRT screens anywhere in the building – security stations, lobby, engineering, machine room, all connected by simple twisted pair cabling.
  • Provide mouse or CPU clock control of security features such as Selected Floor Lock-Out, Suspicious Person Return, Hospital Code Blue, VIP Service, Up/Down Peak, and Lobby Recall.Revitalize lobby using modern color CRT displays and keyboards to replace obsolete light bulb style lobby panels and key switches; no more light bulbs to change or key switches to break.
  • Add new features easily without running any new wires.
  • Trigger emergency audio and video alarms to allow immediate response to crisis situations.
  • Interface to Lift-Net™ Voice.Log error type, car number, floor position, and system status whenever a fault occurs.
  • Detect intermittent failures early, before they become big problems.
  • Perform statistical analysis on hall response times and traffic patterns.
  • Find the bottlenecks that are slowing system response.
  • Optimize zone patterns for peak performance.

Because elevator systems vary widely in complexity, our equipment is designed to be flexible, modular and adaptable. On every installation we work diligently to tailor our design to satisfy the customer’s specific goals.

Compare LiftNet to OEM Elevator Monitoring Systems


  • LiftNet is a stand-alone system specifically designed to monitor and control all makes and models of elevators
  • LiftNet allows different makes of elevators to co-exist on the same network and be viewed and controlled on any network monitoring station
  • LiftNet allows multiple banks of elevators, even multiple buildings to be monitored and controlled on any network monitoring station
  • LiftNet presents a consistent user-interface to the operating personnel regardless of the types of elevators being monitored
  • LiftNet provides a common set of fault, traffic, and operating data, measured and displayed the same way for all monitored elevators
  • LiftNet features a convenient and familiar Windows interface, with all actions carried out by mouse click

OEM Elevator Monitoring Systems

  • Typical OEM monitoring systems are add-on features incorporated into controllers whose primary duty is to run, not monitor, the elevators
  • Most OEM systems allow only one manufacturer’s equipment to be monitored
  • OEM systems usually need one monitor per bank of elevators; at best they require a separate monitor for each building
  • If there are several different makes of elevators being monitored, operating personnel must learn to work several different monitoring systems
  • Each manufacturer measures fault, traffic and operating parameters in a different way. It can be difficult to compare one system to another
  • OEM systems often use a text based operating system with arcane menu and keystroke commands
