Thanks for sharing.

Interesting. But in sum, for those who don't want to watch the whole talk, I didn't see much of practical use, unless you carry a bunch of elevator keys.

Or if you know how to pick locks, many of the elevator lock switches are wafer locks which can be picked in seconds. If there is anything other than that such as a double sided wafer, regular tumbler, or a high security cylinder, good luck.

If you don't have the keys (Because they can be damn hard to get), you could impression one. all you need is the right blank for the lock and over a few elevator rides, you have a working key.

Self explanatory but just don't get caught!

Don't screw around in elevator shafts if you don't know what you're doing. Traction machines are especially dangerous since they have counterweights and cables. Each high rise elevator has counterweights that weight about the same as a car and they travel alongside or behind the cab in the opposite direction. The motor is around 40 hp. Most elevators are actually designed so you can't open the hatch from the inside to keep people from getting into the shaft and getting hurt trying to escape on their own. The most significant hazards are adjacent cars and their counterweights.

If you open the door to hoist way manually from the outside, some computerized elevators, especially newer ones in high rise with multiple elevators will flag a tamper or trouble message in building automation system. Same goes when you activate the service mode or fire mode.

I'm more interested with what can be done from inside the car or maybe control room to gain access to floors which are usually disabled, such as floor 13 or a hotels penthouse which seems to be common ones.
