Emergency phone equipment must be fully ADA compliant. Non volatile memory, Remote or On-Site Programming capabilities and phones that are highly immune to induced voltage surges.
Emergency phone equipment must include visual and communication signals for hearing impaired individuals. Emergency telephone that employ "positive acknowledgment" technology. Not fooled by answering machines.

Why do I need elevator 24 hour phone monitoring?
Elevator code requires that all elevator telephones be programed to a number that is answered 24-hour a day with the capability of identifying the call locations. Many State Elevator Inspectors test telephones annually and one common test is to push the elevator telephone call button and say nothing to see how the call is handled. If the person answering the call hangs up without responding with the elevator location the building may fail the elevator inspection. The cost of elevator re-inspections vary from State to State however the typical re-inspection fee is $250.00 to $700.00. This can be a costly mistake and a improperly trained staff can significantly increase your liability exposure. If you use a call center make sure the call center computer system can instantly identify the building's elevator and location to avoid re-inspection fees and fines.
