In the event of a malfunction with people trapped, elevators are equipped with an emergency call device to a permanently manned location. However, if the trapped persons are hearing impaired, they cannot communicate properly with the control center via the acoustic emergency call devices. With our flexyPage Messenger we offer a solution to provide elevators with a visual second communication channel for trapped persons with a hearing impairment. This function is supported by all flexyPage displays, from 18 cm (7") to 193 cm (76"). The operation can be touch-screen or via external buttons. With our flexyPage displays, you can easily retrofit two-way communication for people with a hearing impairment into existing lifts.
How flexyPage Messenger works
If an acoustic emergency call is triggered in an elevator, the Messenger widget is automatically activated on the flexyPage display. This widget enables visual communication with those trapped. The emergency call centre can send questions in text form to the trapped persons, who can answer them via external buttons or the touch screen. The flexyPage Messenger allows communication in different languages and the sending of free text. The displays communicate directly with the acoustic emergency call devices. When the emergency call is completed, the display switches back to its original function, as a TFT lift display or as a multimedia display, e.g. in conjunction with flexyPage Campaign.
Signalling of the connection establishment
The flexyPage displays can show the status when the connection is established in an understandable way with animated graphics and text.
Elevator users speak many different languages and flexyPage Messenger also supports unlimited languages. These can be defined by the emergency call centre for each elevator. When establishing a connection, the user can select his language in the elevator and communicate with the control center in that language.
The flexyPage Messenger allows you to send free text to the person included, just like a text messenger app. In addition, the Messenger allows you to send possible responses, which the user can easily select or confirm. Text blocks including the possible replies can also be pre-defined in the control panel.
flexyPage Messenger and Campaign
Visual communication is very helpful for trapped persons with a hearing impairment. If an elevator is equipped with a display for two-sense communication, it is useful to use the display for other functions as long as no emergency call is active.
