Vanderbilt launches SPC Connect Pro

Vanderbilt has unveiled SPC Connect Pro, a successor to SPC Pro with which security installers can program the functionality of SPC systems.

SPC Connect is a cloud-based solution designed for remotely monitoring, managing and maintaining SPC Panels.

A desktop application, SPC Connect Pro affords installers and security professionals the following benefits.


  • Backup of configurations files, which gives access to old files via a PC
  • Configurations can be defined and reused at other installations with the same requirements.
  • SPC 3.8.5 firmware
  • SPC panels will now be discoverable when the panel is in full engineer mode, which Vanderbilt says makes connecting to systems faster and easier
  • Installers can access SPC Connect cloud services from the tool, creating a secure connection to support customers

Vanderbilt says

“Pro is designed to use the same interface as the SPC web page so, however you decide to program your SPC, the interface and programming options use the same intuitive interface,” says John O’Donnell, product manager at Vanderbilt.

“With SPC Connect Pro, the evolution of SPC continues and we at Vanderbilt aim to provide, not only great products, but also support our customers as best we can. To that end, within the tool we have built in a new support system that will provide users with the latest support information from Vanderbilt and access to manuals and other support material.

“To secure access and to ensure you are always up to date with the latest information from Vanderbilt, an SPC Connect installer account is needed to access the tool. Installers can sign up for an installer account free of charge and can use the tool immediately. If you wish, you can enhance the tool by signing up for SPC Connect cloud services. Information and pricing are available from,” concludes O’Donnell.

You can download SPC Connect Pro now.
