Industry-first safety enhancement
Similar to the seatbelt alarm found in your car, an alarm sounds when anyone enters the hoistway or placed in inspection mode. The alarm continues to sound until it’s physically switched off. To silence the alarm, the technician must push two buttons simultaneously, putting them in a safe position during movement. The alarm is meant to be heard only in the hoistway so it won’t disrupt the rest of the building’s occupants. This device can be installed on any elevator including non-Otis products.
Reliable emergency communication
This device complies with the current national elevator codes requiring two-way communication in the elevator. Installation is fast and easy because the HANDSOFF phone fits into your existing cab phone cabinet. For maintenance customers, the HANDSOFF phone is automatically connected to OTISLINE®, Otis’ 24-hour customer care center. If an alternate emergency number is preferred, it can be programmed at no additional cost.
Maximum protection for passengers and doors
The OPTIGUARDTM door protection system uses more than 150 infrared beams to create an invisible safety net across the elevator entrance. The system continuously scans for interrupted beams. If any interruption is detected the system will reopen the elevator doors instantly without touching the passenger. This ensures safe passage through the elevator entrance for both passengers and objects.
