What is a door lock monitor?
Door Lock Monitors are a new system that will prevent an elevator from moving unless the doors are properly closed in the correct position.
The department of buildings NYC (D.O.B.) has ordered a mandatory upgrade to all automatic elevators. The installation of a door lock monitoring system will be required by 2020. If your elevator does not have a D.O.B. approved door lock monitoring system installed, it may be subject to a mandatory “shut down” order that will be issued to elevators not in compliance with the new regulation.
