braXos Launches LiftOff Touchless Solution for Elevators to Enable Safe and Secure Vertical Transportation within Commercial and Residential Buildings
Mobile app-based system keeps fingers off elevator buttons, minimizes crowds in front of elevators and controls access to authorized floors
Columbus, Ohio. (September 1, 2020) – braXos, a developer of building security and connectivity solutions, today launched LiftOff, a touchless solution for elevators that enables safe, secure and convenient vertical transportation in commercial and residential buildings. LiftOff works with destination dispatch elevator systems from nearly all major manufacturers and does not require users to scan a device or card at the elevator kiosk, minimizing the crowds that can congregate in front of elevators during peak periods.
LiftOff recognizes users’ location as they enter the building and automatically retrieves the next available elevator cab based on the floor selected in the app. The LiftOff user can then go directly to the waiting elevator and be transported to their residence or office quickly and without contacting any building surface. By scheduling an automatic elevator call in advance, users can seamlessly arrive at their destination floor without having to take out their phone. Building managers control the floors individuals or groups can access through LiftOff administrative functions.
“By delivering safe, secure and convenient elevator management, LiftOff represents the future of vertical transportation but is especially relevant today,” said Tom Skoulis, Chief Executive Officer at braXos. “As property managers prepare their facilities for return to work following work from home orders, LiftOff eliminates a common touchpoint within their buildings – the elevator kiosk – while effectively managing traffic in the lobby to enable social distancing and limiting users to floors they are authorized to access.”
The LiftOff mobile app is available today on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app confirms the physical location of the user, as well as authorized floors available to travel. LiftOff is the first application of braXos Smart Architecture, which is creating new possibilities for building access and security. For more information, visit www.braxos.com/liftoff.
