Don’t risk inoperable elevator phones.
Partner with a trusted emergency communications provider.
Is it finally time to cut the dedicated landlines? Serious money could be saved by going cellular. The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows a 27% price increase on POTS lines from 2005 to 2020 while wireless costs have gone down 50% over the same time period. These price trends are a result of telecom providers phasing out support of analog lines. Lessening the priority on POTS lines logically results in slower service on both existing phone lines as well as those needed for new elevator installations. Delayed service on lines that keep emergency phones live and code compliant has serious implications.
You’ve likely encountered many of your customers looking to VoIP-based solutions for their business needs. VoIP makes sense for buildings nationwide but carries serious risks for elevator phones. Dependence on strong internet connections to keep emergency phones live is unreliable. Additionally, placing emergency phones on VoIP networks in accessible locations like elevators, opens the door to a building’s network.
Industries that are code required to have reliable communication systems are making the transition to cellular. Why is that? These requirements are in perfect harmony with cellular LTE solutions while other internet-based solutions simply aren’t dependable. The 4G LTE connectivity that Kings III’s cellular elevator phone provides delivers stability and reliability at a lower cost than analog.

Our Skyline Cellular Emergency Phone Solution
Skyline completely eliminates dependency on POTS lines by leveraging the mobile network. For elevators, our solution uses a traditional ADA-compliant hands-free phone in each elevator cab. The cellular transceiver is located outside of the concrete & steel-lined shaft.
Kings III’s cellular solution utilizes commercial strength equipment, created with the sole purpose of meeting the unique needs that come with emergency communication.
Other available cellular solutions are designed for consumer/personal use but make their way into commercial spaces. While they may work for a typical call, they aren’t designed with emergency response in mind. When seconds count, it’s imperative to have the proper equipment for a reliable response.
As POTS replacement increases a lack of regulation regarding cellular communicators has led to the use of improper equipment in more specialized use cases. To meet elevator code, devices must include:
- A 4-hour battery backup in case of a power outage
- A communication alert triggering a phone line verification alarm system
- Caller location identification without aid from the caller
The Kings III Cellular Solution exceeds these code requirements whereas other devices often lack the capability to comply with these ASME elevator code standards.
Kings III’s LTE cellular solution, currently deployed in nearly 50,000 customer emergency phones (and growing), now has an optional added benefit. The Kings III M90 cellular dialer is currently the sole FirstNet Ready® emergency phone.
FirstNet is the only nationwide communications network built with and for first responders, enhancing reliability and security when disaster strikes. FirstNet embedded solutions go through extensive review, and approved devices meet the highest standards for reliability, security, and performance.
