PORT Technology

Schindler has once again redefined the boundaries of performance with our third generation destination-dispatch system. Schindler's PORT Technology revolutionizes the science of optimizing traffic flow through a building while offering personalized service and access control.

The PORT terminal

The simple, yet elegant, face of The PORT Technology system.

The brain behind the Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal, or PORT Technology, is a powerful software system that uses information to guide and transport people quickly and safely to their individual destinations, communicating with them through a simple yet elegant device called the PORT.

Schindler's extraordinary new PORT is your portal to communicate with building occupants. It can provide a range of command and communication functions that provide continuous service to you and your building’s occupants. Reliable as it is elegant, the PORT terminal can be mounted to the wall or installed with a freestanding pedestal. Whatever your architectural specifications, the PORT terminal can be a welcome feature.

Schindler also designed the PORT terminal to be extremely energy efficient. Each PORT has a motion sensor to detect when it is required to be active and at all other times, is placed into a low energy consumption state. When the screen illuminates, an ambient light sensor determines the brightness level required, again optimizing energy usage. Finally, the processor, the heart of each PORT, has the lowest energy consumption in its class.

Key features at a glance

Schindler's building mobility solutions are built upon our more than 20 years of destination-dispatch technology experience. Today, the most efficient method of moving passengers through a building is truly the smartest way to move people.

User-friendly operation

With PORT’s universal card reader, a rider simply swipes a personal access card at the PORT terminal for an elevator car to be immediately assigned with an approved destination.

Combining beauty with discretion

A new standard LCD destination indicator can display multiple color combinations with as many as two 1” high letter/number combinations. PORT can also be programmed to display to public visitors only the open floors that are accessed without the use of an access card.

Stylish touch screen design

In step with the latest design and tech trends, new PORT terminals feature touch screens that swipe (not scroll) and come in wall-mounted or pedestal-mounted versions.

Flexible graphics

PORT includes a variety of standard graphic platforms that allow for superior flexibility and ease in updating as building requirements change.

Delivering Smart Building Value for Building Owners & Architects

A boost to traffic performance

PORT groups passengers by destination to provide the shortest possible trip for every rider, avoiding chaotic elevator runs and random, multiple stops.

Excellent personalized service

PORT can customize your journey, whether it be a special VIP trip, a streamlining patient transport or allowing for more approach time, longer door opening time or additional space for passengers with special needs.

Enhanced building security

Floor access is defined by the building management through access cards or smartphones. PORT can also be integrated with turnstiles to further enhance building security.

Modernization made easy

Whether it is the first step or only step, PORT Technology converts conventional elevator controls quickly and easily with minimal downtime. This delivers all the features, functions, and benefits of PORT Technology including improved performance, access control and personalization.


Improve your building's elevator traffic management by up to 50%.

With Schindler’s PORT Technology, a building owner or architect can easily design applications to accommodate a wide range of needs in real time. Whether it’s helping to meet new energy efficiency goals, updating security, scheduling maintenance or adapting to people with special needs, unprecedented levels of customization can be achieved.
