Vanderbilt updates ACT Enterprise with SPC integration and rules mapping engine

Vanderbilt has released a new version of ACT Enterprise that integrates with Vanderbilt’s award-winning SPC intrusion system and features a new rules mapping engine and smartphone app.

Vanderbilt says updates to the the access control software were positively received when previewed at IFSEC International in June.

“Our Apple and Android compatible apps mean real-time monitoring, user management and administration from your smartphone,” said Ross Wilks, Vanderbilt’s head of marketing communications. “You can enable and disable alarms, lock and unlock doors, authorise users and check who’s in and who’s out – wherever you are. Security has never been more convenient, and you’ve never been more in control.

Andrew Fulton, head of access control product line, said: “Integration is a key priority, with significant focus placed on enhancing Vanderbilt’s into functionality and reach in the market. As such, Vanderbilt’s SPC intrusion system now interfaces the Vanderbilt ACT system.

“Now on one screen you can have high-quality graphical maps showing all access and alarm points from both systems and you can control all devices with the click of a button.” Andrew Fulton, head of access control product line, Vanderbilt

“Now on one screen you can have high-quality graphical maps showing all access and alarm points from both systems and you can control all devices with the click of a button.”

Offering advanced configurations of triggers, rules mapping can be applied to events like system input and output change, card swipe outcomes across the access control system and intrusion system events.

“The ACT Enterprise rules mapping engine offers the customer an intuitive method to create rules based on access control events and Boolean logic,” said Michael Moyna, technical product marketing manager at Vanderbilt, which specialises in access control, intrusion and video surveillance. “It does this by permitting the creation of logical relationships between system elements through a drag-and-drop interface.”

“For the end user the addition of rules mapping ensures that system interactions can be seamlessly introduced on a system-wide basis, thereby enabling a higher level of added value to be realized, both for security and business-based functionalities.”

The rules mapping engine offers I/O management for trigger detection with compatible devices, which are usually attached to a door or an automated electrical that closes the circuit on the I/O unit. When this circuit is closed, an alarm is sent over the network and captured by ACT Enterprise.
