The Secret Lives of Elevators

Post by brucef2112 » Thu May 14, 2015 2:32 pm

Fun Elevator Facts Video from two industry specialist with a sense of humor.
From the mechanics, electronics, safety, to security (or lack of it).
Why the door close/open buttons do nothing for you.
Why almost anyone can have the key to the FIRE Serv. Mode key switch because of ebay
Or because, thankfully to one vendor, took straight on photos of their key sets for sale, so you can cut your own!
Or because a State would publish the actual bitting code for the key in a regs document.
How having the wrong key still allows you to do that which you shouldn't.
And they show a video of a elevator test at 100% full power drop of the elevator car crashing to the bottom of the pit!

Info about building subsystems of elevator safety, security, fire response, disaster response and optimization.
Key switches and card systems and social engineering to access or bypass building security systems.
And his favorite elevator feature is Riot Mode.

Debunking movie plots involving elevators.
The main theme throughout: If you're untrained or not licensed,this is all very dangerous or illegal. Don't try this at 'home'.
About 2hrs of entertainment!
