The data you need
for the decisions you want.

Knaq’s intuitive dashboard design allows you to easily navigate historical and real-time data for all of your equipment.

IoT and AI

Let’s face it: you can’t do it all. You’re responsible for hundreds of assets and you rely on others to identify problems. Unreported downtime isn’t even on the radar. Leverage technology to simplify your operations and let us find the proverbial “needle in a haystack”.

Key usage metrics

Visualize hourly equipment performance across floors for metrics such as passenger waiting times, travel times, door usage, and more.

Power Monitoring

Granular sampling of motor activity provides insights into equipment health, from direction and speed to travel distances and time. Current and frequency measurements are quantified in real-time and compared against previous statistics to detect operating anomalies instantly.


Don’t take our word for it!

We don't like talking about ourselves, but fortunately a few others have put in a kind word along the way.

“So, we have been looking for a solution to monitor elevator and escalators for a couple of years… Knaq gives us the ability to do that.”

“The email and text messaging alerts are a huge help.”


Worried about installation costs and excessive downtime?

Knaq’s novel data acquisition technology completely avoids hardwired connections within the controller while maintaining the data granularity from such an input. This significantly reduces physical asset and IT security risks. This also facilitates faster deployments with minimal passenger disruption. Each device contains a 4G LTE modem as part of a fully managed data infrastructure, so you don’t even need to schedule that Teams meeting with IT.
