Datahoist is a leader in elevator and escalator IoT technology.
Let’s Face it.
No one wants to worry about their elevator. We all want elevators to be
available when and where we need them. We all want them to be reliable,
dependable and germ-free. While we haven’t figured out the germ-free
part, we have figured out how to make them more
We’ve accomplished this using:
Internet of Things (IoT)
Through these technologies, we’ve created predictive quality analytics
that help elevator owners see when their elevator’s health is trending
poorly. This visibility allows owners to intervene before a breakdown.
Cloud-Based and Universal
Our technology is
working on any elevator or escalator make or model. We value secure,
non-proprietary open-architecture and data sharing to allow our
customers to connect with data that best fits their needs.
Our goal at Datahoist is to:
Make spaces more accessible for all people
Enhance visibility by bringing a diverse portfolio of
vertical transportation equipment under one easy-to-use
Improve passenger safety
Heighten insight by providing management tools to better
head off issues before they become problems
We do this through advanced sensors and algorithms that provide predictive
quality data right at your fingertips.
Datahoist has a three-tiered product solution approach. All of our
products are designed to increase access, improve safety and elevate
management for our customers. Our products are designed to work in concert

Datahoist will work with you to find the best solution to leverage
technology to ensure your building is more accessible, safe and easily
The Predictive Analytic Solution
SOTL5 was designed with the idea of simplicity and time in mind. It allows
customers to get an at-a-glance health check on your equipment, akin to a
blood pressure cuff.

Our patent-pending algorithms gage hundreds of data points
from the vibrations and acceleration of elevator doors (open
and close) and run (up and down) and provide a color-coded
Our green, yellow, orange and red indicators allow customers
to quickly recognize when there is a pending issue with their
equipment and contact a service provider before a breakdown.
This predictive quality diagnosis ensures elevators are in
service longer without unforeseen breakdowns or
We tie this information together and present it to our
customer through the Datahoist Customer Portal.
Customers can view near real-time updates or set-up daily
Additionally, through Microsoft Power BI, customers can opt to
view increased business analytics.
SOTL5 is exclusively for elevators. The device is installed on the
elevator car-top with discreet wiring in approximately 2 hours with a
trained certified elevator technician.
The Enterprise-Focused Solution
As opposed to obtaining data points and detecting anomalies through
sensors, SOTL6 connects directly with an elevator or escalator controller.
SOTL6 main board with communication and power.
SOTL6 stacked with IO Boards for discreet monitoring. Used for escalators and older elevators.
Connecting to the controller enables our device to read and
translate fault codes and elevator state data into understandable,
searchable and actionable information.
The SOTL6 provides second-by-second comprehensive data to pinpoint
problem areas through faults and state changes instantly.
We utilize Microsoft IoT Central computing power to provide a
virtual space to visualize all your equipment on one screen,
computer or mobile device.
Additionally, we can design a customized solution to interact with
an existing building management system or smart building platform.
SOTL6 has applications for elevators and escalators. The device connects
directly to an elevator controller (CPU) and is installed in approximately
8 hours with a trained certified elevator technician.
Whether you are looking to make your elevator component technology
smarter, improve the ability to manage your portfolio, customize data
points for mission critical assets, or receive in depth troubleshooting,
we will work with you or your DevOps and IT departments to meet your
We recognize there is not a one shoe fits all solution for every transit
system, airport, higher education campus, hospital system or real estate
management firm. Thats’s why our Datahoist

Regardless of industry, if you own or manage a building with more than one
floor, especially if that facility is commercial in nature, then you are
responsible for vertical transportation equipment (elevators and
escalators). If you have newer equipment (less than 10 years old), then
you may have cloud-capable technology embedded in your equipment. However,
it is likely proprietary to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
Moreover, if you have a large portfolio, it is highly unlikely that the
make, model and age of your equipment is the same or even similar.
Datahoist allows all of your equipment to have the same level of
technology regardless of make, model or age. Our devices are universal and
enable owners, building managers, consultants, service providers to gain
visibility and insight into their equipment at any time, any place. We
recognize each industry has a unique set of values and KPIs.
