Elevator Hacking

"Standing in a crowded elevator that stops on every floor sucks. It's even worse during the summer. The elevator basically becomes a giant hotbox on a string. The next time you find yourself in a hurry or just feel like taking an express elevator ride, try an elevator hack.


    • Any elevator
    • A desire for non-stop elevator service

Sometimes elevator manufactures include a button combination that allows you to put an elevator into "express" or "independent service" mode. When an elevator is in "independent service" mode, it will bypass all other stops except yours. This can be very handy during typical busy elevator times like the beginning and end of the work day and especially lunchtime."

Many older elevators can be put into "independent service" mode by pressing and holding both the Door Close and your desired floor buttons at the same time."
