Faced with aging infrastructure and a 25 year old building we had no way to obtain data from our escalators. We had no way to track downtime or what caused it. We could add sensors into the escalators but with safety restrictions we did not want to overhead of recertifying. By adding sensors to track power status of these escalators we were quickly able to understand and track outages. Using Microsoft PowerApps, Logic Apps, Azure Functions, Stream Analytics, Service Bus, Flow, Azure SQL, Azure IOT, a simple app was created to allow our engineering team to see status in real time. Reports can now be run that validate downtime. We also integrated the status into our wayfinding API so we can redirect guests in real-time to operating equipment.
