The agile, powerful API enables building management to effectively analyse data and handle daily operations, from biometric access control to robotics applications and real-time passenger tracking, while offering tenants and visitors a unique, secure and smooth transit experience.
A seamless integration that offers building management peace of mind.
The BuilT-In API provides building owners and managers with a single, consolidated platform where they can conveniently and efficiently manage building access systems, security applications and Schindler Transit Management System.
To facilitate and expedite on-site implementation, Schindler provides a cloud-based API development environment to simulate and optimise third-party system integration.
The redundant BuilT-In API architecture offers high availability to cater the aspect of fault-tolerance, warranty on service provided and data integrity.
Communications between the BuilT-In API and third-party systems are secured and encrypted in a local area network.
By using a standard protocol (RestfulAPI), the BuilT-In API allows effortless programming in a common web-based environment, as well as the integration of new systems by leveraging existing server components - without any interference with overall operations.
Synchronise access database
To avoid duplicating user registration processes across different access control systems, Database API, a plug-and-play interface, helps synchronise and consolidate multiple access control databases into one. The API thus enables building operators to create, edit, or delete any user access profile on an integrated data management platform.
Comprehensive passenger report
With VMS (Visitor Management System) API, building management can generate accurate and comprehensive passenger reports, including access records from Schindler Transit Management System, on the building’s own visitor management system.
Advanced technology integrations
Full API is an all-purpose interface that empowers technology integration within a building in the most scalable manner. The API enables effective communication between Schindler Transit Management System and third-party applications to support integrated functions such as elevator remote calls, facial recognition, QR access, and palm vein access.

Thanks to the versatility of its core architecture, BuilT-In is designed not only to power modern-day buildings but also to anticipate future advances in technology, thus bringing about a world of limitless possibilities.
Seamlessly integrate mobile applications with Schindler’s elevator systems, allowing remote, wireless calls for elevators.
Verify users through their unique palm vein patterns for a long-lasting identification method that upholds excellent security standards.
Integrate with other building service systems such as lighting or air-conditioning to provide an exceptional user experience.
Monitor tenants and visitors’ numbers with the video analysis function to notify building management so they can take immediate action should abnormally large crowds be present on the premises.
Upon today, we have more than 40 awarded BuilT-In projects in Southeast Asia’.
