Monitor and control your lifts in real time

View and control your lifts in real time with our modular lift monitoring system

Installing a lift monitoring system doesn’t have to mean replacing entire lift controllers or confusing fault codes. The Avire Ecosystem can be added onto any lift, no matter how old, and put real-time, visual information about your lifts at your fingertips. The modular nature of our ecosystem means you can connect only the devices you want, and even add further devices at a later date.

And if you’re worried about confusing fault codes, don’t be. Our systems put straightforward, visual information at your fingertips. Watch your lift in real-time or test it with a push of a single button.

Choose only the features you want to add to your lift thanks to the DCP, the brain of the Avire ecosystem. The modular nature of our ecosystem means you can connect as many compatible devices as you like, at any time you want. Even better, a single DCP can work with multiple lift shafts.

Our Lift Hawk makes it easy to monitor and control your lift via the Avire Hub, but it also keeps an eye on things for you. Wish someone else would run the tests for you? The Lift Hawk can learn the recurring usage patterns of your lifts and run essential tests, watching out for problems while you’re getting other work done. Even better, you can avoid the unnecessary call-out fees by checking whether your lift is truly out of service before dispatching a lift engineer.

Monitor the lift from the moment it sends an ‘out of service’ signal to the moment the lift engineer finishes their work with the Connex-01 module. You can also monitor the lift shaft for flooding, or remotely restart the lift from within the Avire Hub. The Connex-01 inputs and outputs are fully customisable, so they can be suited specifically to the needs of your specific lift.

Your cloud-based platform for monitoring your lift. Program tests to run at set times, or watch your lifts operating in real time. There’s no obscure fault codes or streams of data to decode; the Avire Hub gives you an image of your lift moving up and down the shaft and a single press of button can make the lift move and the doors open.

Our connected Panachrome Plus system is the world’s most complete elevator door safety mechanism. Even better, you can see information such as door blockages, timed out diodes, and even how many times the doors have opened and shut, all at your fingertips.

You don’t need to replace your entire COP to upgrade your lift’s display indicators. It’s easy to install our PRP display, and sensors monitor floor position to provide your lift passengers with crystal-clear information on a beautiful, modern screen.

Our emergency communications systems leave behind the limitations of analogue lines in favour of modern GSM connections, all fully compliant with EN81-28 and EN81-70.

DCP Digital Communication Platform

The DCP combines a GSM gateway, emergency telephone and M2M gateway in a single unit. The system is EN81-28 compliant and allows you to upgrade a system from PSTN to GSM. The DCP allows you to reliably configure, update and monitor devices remotely.

Avire Hub

Avire’s cloud monitoring system allows you to see your entire lift portfolio online, to spot when a site visit is actually necessary, to remotely update displays and other equipment, to stream data live from lift controllers or sensors, and to do all of this within a safe and secure digital environment.

Lift HAWK

A common issue for lift engineers is being called out to site to check an ‘out of service’ lift, however, the lift is often ‘running on arrival’. The Lift HAWK means that maintenance companies can quickly and easily check to see if the lift is genuinely ‘out of service’ from a remote location.

Connex-02

The Connex-02 has inputs and outputs that are fully configurable through the Avire Hub. Each input has different monitoring modes to choose from, including if the lift is in or out of service, showing when the lift is in maintenance mode, logging engineer arrival and departure and monitoring of the door open and close cycles.

Navigation Box 02

We believe that every lift has a story to tell, it’s just a matter of how you tell it. The Navigation Box from Avire provides the insight needed to understand more about the journeys your lift has made and its usage pattern.

PRP

The unique retrofit display solution. Less wiring, less time, less hassle. The E-Motive PRP is the only option for easily upgrading to an eye-catching LCD solution.

MRP

The MRP with Navigation box brings multimedia content to elevators with quick and easy installation. Update your display without having to worry about replacing the entire COP, wiring up to the controller or having the correct lift protocol.

Panachrome+

Connected Panachrome+ is the world’s most complete elevator door safety mechanism. This premium light curtain has coloured red and green indicators to highlight door movement.

Sim Cards

Avire's SIM Cards are designed for M2M use. They are non-steered, roaming SIM Cards chosen to give your devices the best coverage and strongest signal available at all times.

DCP Accessories

The Digital Audio Unit (DAU), Triphony Unit, Inductive Loop and Pit Phone (DAP) build the EN81-28 compliant emergency telephone feature of the DCP.

Ecosystem Wiring Looms

CAN Bus Wiring Looms for the Avire Ecosystem. Loom packages are available for Silver, Gold and Platinum Ecosystems. If you have other requirements or if you require a customised package please talk to a member of our sales team.

 

Digital Switch infographic

What is the difference in upgrade vs update of an emergency lift phone setup? [infographic]

As the digital switch continues to be implemented across the UK, building owners and lift maintenance engineers need to ensure autodiallers continue to operate after the change from copper to fibre lines by choosing to either upgrade to a fully digital solution or update their current analogue setup.
Did you know the digital switch could make your lift emergency phones inoperative?

Did you know the digital switch could make your lift emergency phones inoperative?

The UK telecoms network is well into its upgrade process: by 2025 all-new fibre lines (digital) will completely replace copper lines (analogue). The implementation of this new, more efficient network will mean faster data services for home and business users but will render landlines unsuitable for emergency communication devices.
Digital Lines - Analogue to Fibre: The Update

Digital Lines – Analogue to Fibre: The Update

Whilst the deployment of fibre lines began in the 1990s it is in the last 5 years that the rate of fibre installs has really stepped up. Until now this has not affected the lift industry, but in 2020 Openreach (the organisation responsible for the UK PSTN infrastructure) began to withdraw support for analogue signalling/services across the UK landline network regardless of whether the line was copper or fibre.

Child safety in lifts

Lifts are one of the safest forms of transportation provided that they are correctly installed, and regularly and thoroughly maintained. Every year, however, many children are harmed or killed in lifts. Young children, especially those younger than 5 years of age, often lack the strength, coordination, balance, and protective reflexes to avoid injury.

Elevator Safety, Door Edges & EN81 Lift Standards

Elevator Safety, Door Edges & EN81 Lift Standards

As of September 2017 all new lifts must comply with EN81-20 and EN81-50 Elevator Standards. These standards were approved in 2014 to replace EN81-1 and EN81-2, and after a grace period for the elevator maintenance and installation industry to prepare, these elevator standards are now mandatory for all new lifts.
EN81-20 Detectors

EN81-20 Detectors

In August 2014 two new standards covering lift design (EN 81-20:2014) and installation requirements (EN 81-50:2014) were released in Europe. These replace EN 81-1:1998+A3:2009 and EN 81-2:1998+A3:2009, which were 15 years old and needed upgrading to comply with modern safety requirements. It is expected that the new standards will also be adopted in China, South America and Australia.
