Over the past years, IoT in elevators has been implemented in a variety of sectors such as residential, commercial and industrial. The rapid development of sensor technology brings more products of different unique capabilities to modern smarter lifts, and is bound to make them more intelligent and environment-friendly.

  • Additional Costs
Multiple lights for elevators operating 24/7 regardless of the actual status.
  • Unnecessary Stops

Most elevator system would select the closer elevator to respond to the hall call. Even when an elevator is full, it still stops to pick up new passengers because it determines the carrying capability according to the overall weight limits. Practically speaking, the full elevators could get few additional more passengers. For passengers, it is an unpleasant experience. Overcrowding greatly increases the risk of COVID-19 transmission, but waiting for the next elevator is frustrating and time-consuming .


Based on data collected from sensors and gateways, the technical abilities that Milesight introduces let devices manage large streams of performance data so as to present a smarter lift. By adopting Milesight VS121 AI Workplace Sensor, the elevator system is able to make smarter real-time dispatch decisions based on in-car occupancy, without sacrificing passengers’ privacy because of AI powered anonymous detection technology. In addition, the light can be dimmed automatically when VS121 detects an empty elevator for an extended period.

  • Anonymous Live Elevator Monitoring

By monitoring the occupancy levels in each elevator in a building, only less occupied elevators will respond to hall calls, while elevators that are overcrowded yet within weight limitations will prioritize delivering the in-car passengers to their destination. On the whole, through smarter lift, the passenger experience could be improved by allocating elevators with more room to respond to hall calls.

  • Cost-Effective Management

Occupancy detection can contribute to save lighting usage which can be achieved by establishments, commercial, residential complexes, building projects, etc.

  • Well-Informed Decisions-Making

Over time, Milesight gathers rich data, monitors elevator overcrowding, and tracks elevator utilization, helping you manage the efficiency of overall BMS with a fraction of the time it would take a technician to perform the analysis.
