CNIT Introduces Advanced IoT Elevator Safety Solution...

SHENZHEN, CHINA / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2017 / China Information Technology, Inc. (CNIT), a provider of cloud-app technologies for Internet-of-Things (IoT) platforms and internet-based ad and information distribution systems in China, today said it has introduced a sophisticated IoT elevator solution designed to significantly improve passenger safety. This solution, comprised of a CNIT elevator IoT cloud platform, IoT terminal and mobile app, “Yunti Guard,” provides a comprehensive three-in-one IoT and internet-based system that automatically delivers a wide selection of state-of-the-art safety features never available together in a single elevator maintenance product. The first component of this solution is a cloud-based intelligent management platform that allows multiple elevators in a common network to exchange real-time information and safety status with the centralized cloud platform. The platform automatically generates an elevator maintenance schedule, collects and stores elevator operation data, and notifies the appropriate property management or elevator service personnel when standard maintenance functions need to be performed as well as when any elevator emergency arises. The second component of the solution is a low-cost IoT terminal, “Cloud Box,” that can be easily installed inside the elevator. The Cloud Box, which requires no external power supply, allows the elevator to instantly communicate along a network and utilize the above mentioned features of the intelligent management platform. The Cloud Box can interact with the cloud-based platform and mobile app (described below) via bluetooth 4.0 technology, featuring an internal battery that lasts two to three years. Thirdly, the Yunti Guard mobile app permits remote real-time monitoring of an elevator’s operational condition and maintenance needs, and is compatible with both Apple IOS and Android devices. Used together, the three components of the elevator IoT solution can provide “unparalleled maintenance and safety protection for the great majority of China’s four million elevators,” said CNIT CEO and chairman, Mr. Jianghuai Lin. The CEO added that he believed the new solution would benefit from the current Chinese government emphasis on improving the safety of the nation’s elevators. “With our General Administration of Quality Supervision’s repeated demands for new and advanced systems to protect elevator passengers, we are optimistic that our elevator IoT solution will soon gain rapid acceptance in the market and begin producing meaningful revenue for CNIT.” The company’s marketing plan, he said, would establish a nationwide dealer network comprised of joint venture partners or franchisees who would act as elevator IoT operator and end user service representative in each local market. Using this strategy, said Mr. Lin, CNIT expects by the end of this year to sell the solution – including about 100,000 Cloud Box units — in as many as ten provinces and municipalities including Beijing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Shandong, Jiangsu, and Henan. By 2019, he added, CNIT could achieve nationwide coverage for the solution and sell up to 500,000 Cloud Box units. By that year, he projected, the company would also be receiving substantial revenue from both recurring IoT platform service fees and from sale of elevator-related data, stored on CNIT’s network, to property management companies, government entities, elevator maintenance companies and other users.
