Elevators opening directly into your Suite.

In highrise condos with elevators that opening directly into your unit, how does that work? How do you keep strangers that happen to be riding with you out of your suite?

Those buildings are usually "exclusive" enough so that only a few units are served by a same elevator and they probably have a second elevator for external visitors that opens in a normal hall.

you can come down and pick your friend up, or the intercom are normally linked to the lift logic board, and it will release your floor for a minute or so.

In Singapore, they brought it one step further by having a car lift as well letting you park your car in your apartment:

I think those places are very secure, even at the lobby area, and only occpants will be able to get close to the lift.

Probably. This makes no sense and is a very inefficient use of space.

Elevator is very important when you are at the different kind of building establishment. Moreover, the most significant one that I consider is being provides a smooth pleasant ride from one floor to another building.
Home elevators have now become an essential requirement in multi-storied building projects.

And time, in highrise, you probably have 4 passenger lift, each can carry 16+ people.

The car lift can only service one car at a time, it is not going to be any faster then the passenger lift, so imagine how long you may have to wait in the morning or afternoon rush.

I agree its not practical. However, you don't actually sit in the car as it goes up

This is how it works:

Actually, sitting in the car while the car go up or down doesn't make a lot of difference, at 5pm when you come back from work, and there are 8 other person waiting to use this lift, you need to wait in your car until your turn, because you have to physically drive into the turn table.

In the morning, everyone will have to wait for their turn to receive their car in the carpark, problem is if one of the person before you for some reason take longer then normal to get down, he can don't drive the car away and stop the whole system. (I suppose the system can sent the car back to its unit)

Another interesting thing about the video, the car rest on a platform which is transfer to the lift, which is then transfer to the apartment, if the lift need to serve the next car, it must have another platform ready in the basement turntable, with a potentially 60 cars to serve, it also need room to store 60 platforms.

The concept is cool, I am very interest to know if everything is as smooth as it seems.

Does anyone know who (Kone?, Otis? Mitshibishi?) build the lift?

Something i found related to your question:

Source:http://botaklim.net/hamilton-scotts/
Quote:
The Hamilton Scotts with the first-of-its kind self-activated car lift system, all the residence needs to do is drive the car to the basement and activated the car lift via a biometric scan of the thumb print. The lift will then transport the car to the designated unit. The lift, designed by Wohr, a renowned German manufacturer and designer of automated car parks, travel at 2.8m per second which works out to one level a second. So, it takes about 30 seconds for a car on the highest floor to reach the basement of Hamilton Scotts. It could be a lot faster than driving out of a basement car park.
