Elevator Telephone

Telephones are available in all elevators in case of emergency, and are typically installed during construction or renovation.

Generally, the telephone is provided by the elevator manufacturer; however, Northwestern IT can assist in selection of instruments. Installation of the "jack" for elevator service requires collaboration with the elevator installation crew. Because the elevator rides up and down within a shaft, there is special wiring required to accommodate this movement.

Elevator telephones are emergency devices and generally do not have keypads. They are programmed within the telephone switch to automatically be connected to a pre-determined telephone number - usually at a security or building engineering area.
