KONE TO PUT FACIAL RECOGNITION AND ALEXA LISTENING DEVICES IN ELEVATORS

The good old days of elevator music being a minor distraction is about change.

VentureBeat reports that "elevators of the future will have virtual windows, voice-activated controls, music-streaming, and more."

KONE's DX Class, elevators will give security and the buildings owners, unparalleled access to view what is happening inside their elevators.

"Yesterday’s announcement concerned new elevators designed from the get-go with connectivity built in, allowing building owners to remotely control, activate, and deactivate specific services from a central dashboard. The setup includes a dynamic display, acoustics, and lighting that can be used to tailor the ambiance and interior."
KONE's "Monitoring Solutions" page also reveals that security and law enforcement can identify elevator riders in real-time.They even went so far as to trademark their real-time elevator spying program. It's called KONE E-Link:

"With KONE E-Link you can monitor all your elevators and escalators from a single location. It gives you a real-time overview of equipment status, demand, traffic performance, and availability."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The next time I walk into a building in which I know these devices have been installed, I believe I will take the stairs, thank you very much.
