    Yes.
    Usually already there.
    Dunno.
    5-10 bucks pm.

    Usually an easy job since the elevator yahoos do all the work, we just tell
    them what phone number to program in and send a bill or add it to the alarm
    monitoring. Havent done one in a few years...I forget exactly how we used to
    tie them to an account for ID purposes.

    I do not, but there is a device made by Viking Electronics for true line
    seizure so a dedicated line is not required. I carry it on my site

    #1 Yes, we monitor elevator phones, but only on the jobs where
    we install or service the fire alarm system.
    #2 We use the second line of the fire alarm system for the elevator.
    #3 None that I am aware of.
    #4 $10.00 per month.

    I thought I was going to give you some useful info, but when I asked
    Todd (or C/S GM), he said "We hate elevator phones, they suck." so I
    left it at that.

    Todd Novicky? Really? He monitors one for me. We used a Viking product
    that sends true CID with an account number then waits for a voice
    connection. It works on a CS line setup for two way voice. If you are
    interested I can pull the file and look up the exact product.

    We also use the viking unit, it reports contact id and comes up on our
    2-way voice phones. We charge between 10 & 15$.

    Looks like we monitor about 150 elevator phones with wholesale rates
    ranging from $5 to $7 ($7 when coming in on an 800 number).
