Every now and then I see topics concerning how best to do camera installs in elevators (what equipment to use, what wire to run...), but not having done them before there always seemed to be more under the surface to the logitsics that never get's discussed that I've had to glean here and there.
Generally speaking, form what I've been able to gather so far, unless you are specially trained and LICENSED to work on elevators, if you're an installer/integrator, the most you may be able to do is mount the camera in the elevator and connect your recorder to the other end where the elevator company tells you too. It seems any camera install you want to do in an elevator (from an integrator and customer perspective) will have to be a cooperative effort with the customer's elevator company as they will be the ones licensed to run any cables in the shaft, the elevator room and inside the lift itself due to safety and regulation laws. If there is a problem with the wire in the shaft or elevator room, you'll most likely have to have a licensed elevator service company either fix it for you or work with them on the repair.
It seems anyone who tries to do service or run wire to or mount a camera in an elevator and in the shaft without being trained and licensed in elevator maintenance will be taking their legal life in their own hands.
Amd I right in this?
